7 Outsourcing Laundry: Need for Viable Option  Proliferation of Outsourcing of non-core functions  Need to maximize revenue-generating space  Emphasis on cost-containment  Utility volatility post-Katrina  Rising Labor/Benefit costs

8 What’s to love about Laundry?  Challenges: –Staffing –Machinery breakdowns –Inconsistent quality and shading –Peaks and valleys (feast or famine) –Fire concerns and safety risks  Summary: Expensive and Aggravating

9 Example: Utility Consumption at a 400 Room Hotel  75% Occupancy  12lbs/Occupied Room  1,314,000 lbs Annually  3.5 Gallons of Water per lb of Laundry  4.6 Million Gallons of Water!  $0.03 per pound of Laundry for Water/Sewer  $0.08 per pound of laundry for gas/electric

10 Different Machinery at Hotels  Age and Efficiency of your Machinery  Whether Hotel operates an ironer  How full Machinery is Loaded  Cost anywhere from $0.08-$0.11 per pound for gas/electric

11 Royal: Advanced Machinery = Green Benefits  Continuous Batch Washers (CBW) -- guarantees chemistry, temperature and water levels  18 Min Wash Cycle  Installation of $1.4 Million Water Reuse system March 2009:  70% Less Water –1 Gallon >.3 gallons of water per lb.  Recycled water holds temperature, uses less gas  Wash Water remains chemically “charged”, less detergent needed

12 Royal Machinery cont’d  Prior to washer>dryer transfer excess water “squeezed” out of Laundry under 400 lb press  Reduces amount of dryer time – 20-25 minute cycle  Linen: Not fully dried prior to ironing  Terry: Fully dried (but not over-dried!)

13 Environmental Benefits  39 Hotels Serviced in Boston/Cambridge  Over 38 Million lbs processed annually  We estimate.3 gallons of water used per lb  Hotel Machinery uses 2-3.5 gallons of water  Conservative Savings: 2 Gallons per/lb  76,000,000 Gallons Annually Savings:  $2.28 Million in Water and Sewer  $1.9 Million in Gas and Electric
