When Anaheim businessman and restaurateur Carlos Rubalcaba bought the Rubalcaba Bros Coin Laundry at 524 North East Street seven years ago, he was focused on running a successful laundromat business in his local community. By 2016, Rubalcaba realized that the equipment and facility were long overdue an update so he began planning a remodel.
Rubalcaba’s search for the best in coin-op laundry equipment quickly took him to Dexter Coin Laundry Equipment. Dexter has been manufacturing coin-op laundry equipment for over 100 years in Fairfield, Iowa and is well-known for delivering quality equipment that performs quickly, efficiently, and reliably.
“There was one thing I kept hearing over and over,” Rubalcaba said and “It was that you can’t go wrong with Dexter.”
To make his vision a reality, Rubalcaba contacted Western State Design (WSD), the Dexter distributor ranked number 1 in worldwide sales since 2009. Rubalcaba partnered with WSD’s Steve Erlinger to determine the appropriate equipment size and mix for his business. For Rubalcaba, incorporating innovative state-of-the-art Dexter C-Series coin-operated washers and dryers sounded like a perfect fit for his needs.
The newly renovated Rubalcaba Bros Coin Laundry store now boasts all new Dexter Equipment, including twenty-nine C-Series laundry washers, including seven T-300 washers, twelve T-400 washers, six T-600 washers, two T-900 washers, and two T-1200 washers. In addition to the washers, Rubalcaba purchased ten 30-pound and five 50-pound stack dryers. Not only do these machines provide a functional and visual upgrade for the customers, but Dexter’s C-Series also comes with access to DexterLive controls and the DexterLive.com smart new web application, allowing managers and owners to track operation of their equipment remotely.
The sharp looking and energy efficient Dexter laundry equipment is set in a remodeled and upgraded space that features a new hot water heater, a new water tank, and four new flat-screen televisions. Erlinger says that the renovations to the laundromat were well received by the local community who walk as a primary means of transportation and require ready access to a laundromat. According to residents, the results of the renovation of Rubalcaba Coin Op Laundry were well worth the wait.
