WESTWEGO, La. — Loop Linen Service, a fourth-generation family-owned full-service textile rental company based here, reports it will invest $15 million to construct a new 55,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art commercial laundry facility.
The company says it has secured property at the intersection of U.S. 90 and Louisiana 18 and is in the process of finalizing architectural plans for the facility.
Construction is anticipated to begin by early 2025. The new facility is slated to be completed and operational 16 months after breaking ground.
Loop Linen Service will retain all 125 current positions as it transitions from the Westwego facility that it has occupied since 1931.
Louisiana Economic Development estimates the project will result in 48 new indirect jobs in the Southeast Region.
“Jefferson Parish has always been Loop Linen Service’s home and home to our employees,” Loop Linen Service President Scott M. Burke says.
“We are excited to continue the company’s growth here and contribute to the business economy in Jefferson Parish.”
Founded in 1929, Loop Linen provides rental textiles including table linen, garments and walk-off mats for the food and beverage and hospitality industries.
The company started as a local dry cleaning and laundry business on the west bank of Jefferson Parish and now has nearly 1,400 customers across Louisiana and Mississippi, with offerings ranging from uniform rentals to hospital services.
