Not your ordinary laundry service.

Our Story

 

We believe the greatest laundry service rests at the intersection of fashion and lifestyle. Laundry is more than a means to an end; the right laundry service helps you express your style with confidence. That’s why at BBL, we value customizing our services to customers’ needs above all else. Unlike an app-based service, at BBL you can talk face-to-face with a laundry specialist interested in getting to know you and your lifestyle needs.

BBL was founded by Lucy Yang in 2008. As a busy young professional juggling a hectic advertising job and her personal life, Lucy was frustrated with unreliable laundry services who refused to take personal requests. Inspired by her laundry woes, Lucy opened the first BBL location in NoHo.

 Since 2008, BBL has grown from a corner laundromat to a one-stop garment shop attracting the likes of stylists, fashion designers, celebs, bloggers and more. No longer a neighborhood secret, BBL has regularly accepted commercial clients since its first, the Mercer Hotel, in 2010. But whether working for a neighborhood local or a big business, BBL continues to keep immaculate service as its core.
