Study Shows U.S. Consumers Prefer Cloth Napkins

In November 2013, Milliken & Company, a leading manufacturer of table linen fabrics and a Dempsey Uniform supplier, looked into consumer preferences and asked the question, “Do they prefer paper or cloth napkins?” P.J. Dempsey, President of Dempsey Uniform & Linen Supply, was quoted online by Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington as saying, “Industrially laundered cloth napkins are used multiple times, versus a single-use paper napkin.” Dempsey’s state-of-the-art processing system ensures customers’ linen napkins are laundered using techniques selected to maximize sustainability.
