In times of crisis, you will find out what really matters.
On June 8, 1966, an F-5 tornado ripped through Topeka, Kansas, destroying everything in its path. Hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed, and many thousands more were damaged. Some lost not only all of their possessions, but were able to escape the destruction with only the clothes on their backs.
In the months following the storm, several apartment complexes sprung up to meet the needs of those who had lost their homes. Along with the construction of these complexes, there arose a huge need for laundry services. It was in the wake of this natural disaster when we realized just how much laundry really matters, and Jetz Service Company was born. Consequently, Jetz installed sixteen (16) washers and sixteen (16) dryers in Sargent Apartments which was the very first apartment community Jetz partnered with and, we continue to provide service to this community and its residents today.
Today, Jetz continues to meet the laundry service needs of thousands of residents. Our business has grown to include the installation, maintenance and service of coin- and card-operated, domestic in-unit, and “free use” laundry solutions for colleges, universities, multi-housing communities, and laundromats.
