Wash Cycle Laundry doubles DC staff, hiring 5

Wash Cycle Laundry (WCL), a dry cleaning and laundry delivery service that was founded in Philadelphia in 2010 and rolled into D.C. in May 2014, announced via press release that it will be doubling its local staff of five to ten. The new positions will employ adults who need help getting back into the workforce. Half of WCL's 50 jobs companywide are filled by adults who have faced a period of incarceration, addiction, homelessness or welfare dependence.

WCL needs more staff to handle a contract with George Washington University and Aramark, the janitorial company employed by GWU, to handle the latter's reusable cleaning linens.

“We’re proud to work with Aramark and the George Washington University who have committed to using environmentally-friendly laundry services in the nation’s capital,” says Gabriel Mandujano, WCL founder and CEO, in the release. “Our company has proven delivery on bicycles and paying above the minimum wage to employees is not only good practice, but can handle the scale of our country’s largest institutions.”
