Company History

Sunshine Laundry is a fourth generation Hartford business, established in 1917. At that time Sunshine's neighborhood included farmers, horses, and cows. The convenience of home washers and dryers had yet to become a part of our daily lives. Therefore, Sunshine began to meet laundry needs by servicing the families of greater Hartford.

As times evolved so did Sunshine. Today Sunshine serves the New England states as one of Connecticut's largest linen supply companies. We specialize in helping you make all events elegant.

In October of 2008 Sunshine suffered a devastating fire. This forced our location to change. Remarkably, the fire occurred on a Friday night and all of Sunshine's staff and trucks were operating the following Monday, at a temporary location. (See Sunshine Burns on YOU TUBE) This was possible thanks to many of our loyal customers and those who extended a helping hand. Although the fire forced us to change location, Sunshine's superior consistent customer service has remained consistent. Sunshine's foundation is built on service, and t quality. For your convenience we can be reached seven days a week snd our trucks are ready to serve you.
