THE STORY OF THE DUTCHMAN’S LAUNDRY
After years working in residential washer repair services and as a Speed Queen residential laundry dealer, Nathan and Becci Burkholder expanded their family business to include a commercial laundry service, The Dutchman’s Laundry. From their experience in the appliance repair industry, there were several complaints the Burkholders heard repeatedly from people who had recently visited laundromats－that they were dirty, that the machinery was often very old and that much of it was out of order. With these concerns in mind, The Dutchman’s Laundry opened in August 2015 with the goal of providing the community with a safe, clean and reliable place to do laundry.
Since their grand opening in August 2015, The Dutchman’s Laundry’s business has grown steadily. A regular customer base has developed, and many individuals who would not ordinarily utilize a laundromat have come in to use the facilities and top-notch equipment. Thanks to the facility’s cleanliness, commercial-sized washers, well-maintained equipment and family-friendly environment, many customers come in to take care of large items like comforters or to catch up on an extra-large load of laundry after a busy week or a long trip.

And if you were wondering about the name. . . .
The Burkholders trace their heritage back to the Pennsylvania Dutch community of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with many grandparents and relatives that still speak Old German or “Pennsylvania Dutch.” Although their immediate family is no longer Amish or Mennonite, the Burkholders decided to name their laundromat to reflect their unique family heritage, while also giving their business a personal touch for customers to remember.
