When Edinburgh restaurateur Alan Hogg tired of substandard, overpriced laundry service providers for his Edinburgh restaurant, he purchased some equipment and processed his company’s own laundry himself in his garage.

‘Not long after I’d started, requests began to come in from my friends and contemporaries in the restaurant trade to take on their laundry service, and things started to gain momentum,’ he says. ‘I took a few of them on and gradually expanded as it became clear that people wanted a service that was consistent and reliable, and which didn’t cost them the earth.’

Nowadays, with clients all over Scotland, PLS looks after the laundry needs of hundreds of businesses, working in tandem with them to make their businesses more efficient.
