Wash Zone started off with one branch in 1999. The owner Willis Du Plessis bought it from a friend who was leaving the country. The following year, Willis bought his next Laundromat and now has 12. Wash Zone has branches in Bedfordview, Florida, Roodeport, and Krugersdorp, to name a few. Some of the Laundromats were bought from their owners and others were built from scratch. Willis names all his Laundromats, such as sunflower and white wash, as he thinks this adds personality and life to them. Wash Zone prides themselves on their customer service. They remember every client who walks through their door and believe that they don’t just provide a laundry service but they buy their clients time to spend with their families, run errands or rest, while they do their washing for them.
