SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Mission Linen Supply has been awarded a contract by the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, Calif., to be the sole provider of uniforms, linens, mats and mops for the Inn’s guestrooms, steak house and coffee shop.
The Madonna Inn is situated on approximately 2,200 acres and has been one of California’s landmark attractions since it opened 50 years ago, Mission Linen says. In addition to the main inn, the property incorporates a wine cellar, bakery, coffee shop, dining room, gift shops, a full-service resort day spa, pool and fitness room, several banquet rooms, and the largest convention center on the Central Coast.
Mission Linen’s Morro Bay and Santa Maria facilities will service the inn, spa, steak house and coffee shop.
The fact that both are family-owned businesses played an important part in the Inn’s decision to select Mission Linen, says Mat Tornquist, Madonna Inn special projects manager.
“We were impressed with Mission Linen’s ability to manage the various needs of our resort,” Tornquist says. “The fact that they are local and had two processing plants nearby was another contributing factor. In the end, though, we felt that our two companies share a similar outlook, and that’s what ultimately gave us the comfort we were looking for.”
