In 1958, John Anitra started a Long Island linen laundry and delivery service with a van, one washer and one dryer.
In 2020, J&A Coat, Apron, Towel and Linen is now a fourth generation family run business that has more than a dozen long time employees and operates a fleet of trucks servicing North Shore and South Shore commercial and residential accounts from Manhattan to Montauk.
During the past six decades, J&A has proven themselves to be one of Long Island's most trusted and reliable providers of chef wear, linens, towels and uniforms in the industry. Unlike other laundry and linen providers who may offer "drop and go" laundry services, J&A distinguishes itself in the industry by providing laundry pick up, cleaning, delivery, "nice and neat" shelf restocking and custom inventory services.Their clientele includes hundreds of delis, pizzerias, restaurants, catering halls, country clubs and spas, as well as tanning salons, fitness gyms, and assisted living facilities throughout Long Island. Emergencylaundry services as well as off site rentals for both commercial and residential events and catering is also available. Additional services also include tent cleaning services, specialty tablecloth cleaning and maintenance, and color pairing linen consultation services for both commercial and residential clients.
A Long Island business dedicated to helping fellow Long Island businesses, J&A Coat, Apron, Towel and Linen is headquartered in Bay Shore. The company is proud of the fact that they are still a private family run business and not a corporation. Their long term clients are long time friends who greet each other by first name and care about the success of each other's businesses. The company is commited to great service and building relationships with their clients by delivering "clean and pristine" high-quality products, custom billing (you only pay for what you actually use), and going above and beyond the call of duty, no matter how large or small the account.
Everyone who answers the phone is an industry veteran who has both the knowledge and experience to help customers quickly and efficiently.
J&A also gives back to the community. J&A Coat, Apron, Towel and Linen was proud to receive the Islip Small Business Award 2013 for their services to the community.
