Local Uniform Companies vs. National Uniform Companies


local uniform companies vs national providers - Gallagher Uniform

It’s not just our opinion, it's a cold hard fact: local uniform suppliers beat out national competitors in exceeding customer expectations (by twice as much!). Companies that recently switched textile rental and uniform suppliers were asked to rate their new supplier as performing better than, equal to, or worse than their expectations. The results were very clear. Local, independently owned uniform rental companies were more than twice as likely to exceed expectations in each of the areas noted above. Companies that switched to a national chain from a local independent company were three times more likely to say that the new supplier performed below expectations in the area of service.

An unbiased study was performed by Market Measurement, Inc., an outside market research firm. The research firm asked companies that rent uniforms and had recently switched their supplier to rate their experience after the change.

How Do Local Companies Achieve Higher Quality?

Impact on the Community, Economy & Environment
