Highest Quality Products and Processes

Dempsey’s commitment to cleanliness through third-party, quantified, biological testing and inspection is validated by TRSA™ Hygienically Clean Food Service Certification. This ensures the textiles we launder meet appropriate hygienically clean standards and best management practices. Inspectors verify our laundry practices, certify our plant’s operational flowchart, and make sure procedures are mapped and employees’ use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is documented. We invest in technologies to provide hygienically clean linen that helps protect the health and safety of guests and employees. Textiles are processed using highly advanced laundering equipment, inspected by the most tenured team in the business, and securely wrapped in plastic for delivery. This saves you time and money, and provides some much-needed peace of mind.

Most Reliable Deliveries

We understand that linen shortages can really slow your restaurant down, frustrating employees and affecting your restaurant’s image.

To increase your restaurant’s efficiency, we leverage technologies, like our VacuTrack™ and MobileLink™ systems, to make complete deliveries on your scheduled delivery day. We accurately track the soiled linens you turn in, maintain deep inventories of the products you use, and route our trucks with GPS precision to make sure your delivery is on schedule.

Lowest Total Cost

Invoices from other restaurant linen suppliers can be frustrating. They may not even tell you how many linens you’re using.

At Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply, we harness technologies, like our VacuTrack™, CustomerPortal, and SilverSaver™ systems, to provide you with knowledge and insight via an online Customer Portal. This proprietary interface enables you to view and adjust your orders to control the total cost. We only bill you based on usage, plus, when employees leave flatware in your soil bags, we collect and return it to you at no additional cost.

The Restaurant Scene in Washington D.C. is a Reflection of Tastes, Culture, and Cuisine from around the World

The District of Columbia, also known as Washington D.C., was originally situated on what was mostly swampland in the delta of the Potomac River, land ceded by Maryland and Virginia. It included the cities of Georgetown, Maryland, and Alexandria, Virginia. Most Federal buildings, the U.S. Capitol, the White House, and the Supreme Court are all located on the land that used to belong to Maryland. In 1846, the relative neglect of the Alexandria area spurred Virginia to petition Congress to return its property. The success of that action was based, in part, on the fact that as a center for the slave trade, Alexandria was at odds with the sentiments of the time.

The two biggest employers in the District are government and tourism. In addition to the high-profile tourist sites – the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Monument, the Smithsonian, the Washington Monument, and the Vietnam Veterans Wall – there are a host of fascinating places and experiences just off the beaten path.

It can be a bit daunting to figure out where to go and how to see as much as possible. To help folks get organized, a D.C. group called “Free Tours by Foot” offers self-guided walking tours of the city. They also have guided tours, priced according to what a guest thinks the experience was worth. There are many different itineraries from which to choose, depending on one’s interests and time. Bus tours, boat excursions, and even tours of the city at night are also available. At the National Cathedral, several tours are offered – including one focused on gargoyles – as well as a traditional English high tea. The Cathedral’s annual Flower Mart features not only the expected herbs and flowers, but also children’s rides, a large craft fair, and a delicious assortment of festival foods.

There are hundreds of restaurants in D.C., representing many tastes and trends, which cater to the growth in population in the City’s center. Many residents who once inhabited the surrounding suburbs have decided to move back and enjoy the benefits of city living. One of those benefits is access to great dining and, in the District, it’s second to none. The National Restaurant Association has rated Washington D.C.’s restaurant saturation at 332.2 restaurants per 100,000 people, substantially higher than New York City’s 237.1 rate. Chef-driven restaurants offer dishes featuring flavor profiles from France, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Mediterranean, Italy, and other, more exotic locales. Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply provides table linens, uniform rentals, and facility supplies to a wide variety of hospitality and dining establishments in the Washington D.C. area, including Nage Bistro, i Ricchi, and Café Berlin.

The District is also a gracious home for embassies from around the world. Each year in May, more than 70 of them band together to throw a 31-day event called “Passport D.C.” Guests visit the embassies to view demonstrations that reflect diverse cultures and participate in the European Union Culture Month, the Around the World Embassy Tour, the European Union Embassies’ Open House, the Fiesta Asia! Street Festival, and the Embassy Chef Challenge Gala.
