Linens Define Your Brand

Leasing Linens vs. Buying: Benefits and Drawbacks

Purchasing linens has its own unique set of benefits and drawbacks.  If you’re looking for a unique color or specific style, it may be hard to find a linen service that will lease uniforms that can’t be used across multiple companies. However, if you find a reputable linen provider willing to go the extra mile to keep you satisfied, you may find that it’s much easier and less stressful to lease your linens, letting someone else take on that burden.
