Today, Dee Dee Mandino, owner of Dee’s Cleaners and Laundromat, continues the tradition she began with her parents at Dee’s Cleaners and Laundromat’s two locations in Bristol and Hamden. After renting space in the Bristol Plaza for many years, Dee knew that she wanted to expand to increase the number of washers and dryers available to her loyal customers as well as to grow her customer base and so she purchased the building which Insane Irving’s occupied at 900 Farmington Avenue and opened for business in the new location in April 2018. Dee’s sister who is a designer helped her with the decor going the extra mile to include beautiful and comfortable surroundings. Customers are able to relax on comfy couches, put their feet up and watch TV while they wash their clothes or they can catch up on their work or homework at the convenient tables with plenty of natural light. With free WiFi and plenty of space to relax customers feel like they are home in their own living room. There is also a well-stocked library with books for every age including puzzles and games.
The new Bristol location has lots of washers and dryers from single load all the way up to eight LOADS! Customers can sort lights and darks to their heart’s content and use small load washers, or save time and money with the HUGE washers. There are also big dryers, too! Perfect for big bulky items or big family loads. A new feature in the new location is the ability to pay with a credit card or debit card which is built into every machine. Apple Pay and Android Pay are also options. But, if you enjoy collecting coins, you can still pay with coins or cash as well.
If laundry is not your thing then you can leave the laundry to Dee’s! It’s an affordable way to add time back into your life. The staff will wash it bright and clean, dry and fold it according to Dee’s strict quality standards – the same way every time. This service is perfect for busy people, those who are recuperating from surgery, and the elderly. Pick Up & Delivery Services is also an option and is offered to the following towns: Bristol, Terryville, Plymouth, Burlington, Torrington, Harwinton, Plainville, Wolcott, Southington, Cheshire, and Hamden.
Dee has been in the laundry and dry cleaning business since the early 1980s. She, along with her parents, set out to build excellent clothing care centers and built a chain of laundromat/cleaners with a vision to have the centers be unique and excellent in every way, from customer care to equipment to décor to cleanliness and convenience in order to exceed their customers’ expectations. Dee and her parents opened and operated five laundromat/cleaners centers in Torrington, Bristol, East Hartford, Hamden, and New Britain.
As a second-generation family business, Dee along with her dedicated staff prides themselves in providing the cleanest, friendliest, most comfortable laundromats and cleaners, and offer the convenience of a really great range of clothing care services in one place.
Dee says the secret to her business’ success is having the best team – many of Dee’s staff have been working for her for many years so they have gotten to know each and every customer by name and they know how to take care of people making every customer feel like they’re worth it!
