Our History: From Humble Beginnings To An Industry-Leading Linen & Uniform Rental Program

Mickey’s Linen has been satisfying customers for many years, first in Chicago and currently throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. In 1929 founder Chris “Mickey” Georgadis realized the need for a company to deliver clean towels to beauty and barber shops — selling, servicing, washing, and delivering out of his Chicago basement.

With the company’s focus on quality and service from the beginning, the business grew. In 1936, Mickey moved his small business operations from his home into an industrial processing facility. During this time, his nephew, Peter G. Brown, joined the company. Peter immediately expanded the company’s product line to accommodate new customers and new markets.

The commitment to excellence established by Peter G. Brown remains the cornerstone of the company today. Over the years, Peter’s children Greg, Nick, Cynthia and Chris Brown led the company to many years of growth. Today, Mickey’s Linen still operates under the leadership of Greg and Chris Brown, continuing into the fourth generation with Peter’s grandson, Peter G. Brown.

Mickey’s Linen operates in four states, employs over 375 team members, with multiple processing facilities, and servicing 5,500 customers. As Mickey’s Linen continues to grow within its existing facilities and new markets, we never lose sight on product quality, and unparalleled service, committed to providing industry-leading linen & uniform rental programs & services, everyday.
