Full Service Laundry

the story of soap

The business began as an idea when the family was together in Lincoln. Diane opened the discussion by saying that she thought Laundromats were a good cash business and suggested that a trendy facility near campus would be a great investment. Lyn suggested giving it a catchy, one-word name, and the concept of “Soap” was born. Over the next year, Lyn worked to secure a location and order equipment; Kevin designed the logo and all of the signage and Carrie made most of the decisions about the décor. Glen, a CPA in North Platte, set up the books and continues to do the payroll and file all of the tax documents. Cory, a successful businessman in his own right, offered helpful business and marketing insight.

The renovation of an old warehouse on the corner of 16th and “O” began in early 2012, and Soap opened for business in late April. The owners wanted to maintain the character and integrity of the building as much as possible, and believe that the result is a unique, open and inviting atmosphere that will take the drudgery out of doing laundry.
