We had the good fortune of connecting with Ross Dodds and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ross, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We offer laundromats that are not your typical laundromats. Ours are NEW! New Washers and Dryers to clean your laundry better than anywhere. We offer the fastest finish, with wash and dry in under 1 hour. We have the Newest Technology, accepting credit and debit cards right at every machine. Well lit facilities, clean, safe, and free wifi. Our success is thanks to the support of our community and that has allowed us to partner with several organizations to issue free laundry vouchers for those in need. We have been able to help many team members with cell phones and to-date we have helped put 3 team members into their very own furnished apartments.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am all about food and wine! Starting in West Hollywood at Pura Vita for some of the best Vegan food. Wally’s Beverly Hills for the widest selection of single glass wines you have ever seen! Italian has got to be Drago Centro downtown, Los Angeles. The hot new area in town for me is the Fashion District with great spots like Rossoblu
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would not have been able to start this business without the full support and backing from my husband Russel Pinkard. Also, because of meeting Maike Both back during the very first week of owning our first laundromat, we are now able to do the kind of outreach we do for homeless in Los Angeles.
