Based in Miami, Crown has operations there, as well as in Orlando, Fort Myers and Haines City. Laundry Plus’ service area includes Bradenton, Sarasota, St. Petersburg and Tampa. Rick Rone, owner of Laundry Plus, said that the company is “excited about the future as a part of the Crown Linen team. We could not have found a better partner, due to their position on ecology and providing the ultimate quality and service at the best value. The Laundry Plus ideologies coincide extremely well with those of Crown Linen and it makes for a great acquisition.”

The purchase was finalized on Sept. 15. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
