60th Anniversary Book

Superior Linen Service

We loved having you write our book. Wish you could have seen our employees’ faces when they saw the book for the first time!

Ashley Tosh, Director, Marketing & Communications, Superior Linen Service

We’re honored that Pennsylvania-based Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply, whose 50th anniversary book we created, recommended us to their colleagues at Superior Linen Service in Tulsa, Oklahoma. For Superior Linen Service’s 60th anniversary, we wrote a different kind of book—not a chronological narrative, but a collection of stories about teamwork, technology, and trust.

Call it “history lite.” The book has a page-turning design, fun-to-read anecdotes, and other features that allowed us to write it quickly while still capturing the essence of the company – especially its family-oriented culture and innovations that have won it two-time honors as one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 5000 fastest growing privately held companies. Our research included:

  • More than 20 hours of oral history interviews with employees and retirees
  • Ride-alongs with route drivers, who are the face of the company to its clients in the hospitality and healthcare industries
  • Plant tours that showed us the company’s amazing technology in action

Family owned and operated since 1954, Superior Linen Service delivers exceptional linen and facility service programs to more than 3,000 customers across Oklahoma, Arkansas, Southern Kansas, and Southern Missouri. Because no two businesses are alike, it doesn’t offer “one-size-fits-all” rental programs for customers. Instead, it goes one step further by creating custom programs that are tailored to their specific needs. We wrote the company’s history in the same spirit!
