When I first entered the laundry business years ago, one of the first and probably most important lessons I learned from my father-in-law Max Stettner at Penn Linen & Uniform Service, was to have a contingency plan in place. Unfortunately not owning a crystal ball, we do not have the luxury of knowing in advance when a natural disaster might strike or worse yet when our machinery may break down. A contingency plan is the key to successful operations as it will ensure you can still deliver your products in a timely manner even when things take a turn for the worst.
