Dexter Laundry to expand into new building on Burlington

Dexter Laundry recently began construction on a new state-of-the-art self-service laundry on Burlington Ave in Fairfield.

The 6,000-square-feet building is being built next to Dexter Laundry?s current Easy Wash Laundry at the corner of West Burlington and South Fourth Street. It will include the laundry as well as accommodate additional retail outlets.

?We are excited to bring a new facility and retail space to Fairfield,? said Andrew Kretz, president and CEO of Dexter Apache Holdings. ?The corner of Burlington and Fourth Avenue has been a self-service laundry for over 50 years. We want this location to better serve the community, plus highlight Dexter equipment made right here in Fairfield.?

The laundry will occupy half the building and serve as a showcase store for Dexter?s worldwide network of commercial laundry distributors and service technicians.

?We routinely host customers from around the globe; a functioning showcase store will allow us to display our products and train our customers on best installation practices and service techniques,? said Craig Kirchner, president of Dexter Laundry.

The remaining 3,000 square feet can accommodate one or two future tenants, including the option of a drive-up window.

?The new building will be one of the most attractive in town, giving our community something to be proud of and potentially attract new businesses to Fairfield,? explained Kirchner.

Fairfield Economic Development Association?s executive director Joshua Laraby remarked, ?Dexter Laundry continues to give back to Fairfield and their further investment of this stunning new facility in our community is very exciting. This new center will not only be a globally visited demonstration site for their customers and a state-of-the-art laundromat for the public, but it will also add to Fairfield?s portfolio of available retail space. This will be helpful in attracting new business to Fairfield.?

The project is expected to be complete in the spring. The current laundry will remain open during construction and will later become additional parking once the new facility is complete.
