Who We Are

RJ Kool Has Been Serving the Midwest Since 1961

RJ Kool was originally founded in 1961 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After years of being a leading commercial laundry and dry cleaning equipment distributor in our market, we branched out in 1994 after acquiring a similar commercial laundry equipment distributor in Kansas City. In 1995, as part of a decision to move our headquarters, we opened a 20,000 sq. ft. facility in Kansas City, MO. In 2000, we expanded into the St. Louis, MO market and after 16 years of continuous success, we bought a 20,000 sq. ft. facility in 2014 to accommodate the needs of our client in the growing St. Louis market and surrounding area. We also have service locations in Omaha, Springfield and Tulsa to ensure that a high level of support is readily available for all our customers in the region. Our customers find that they save money with reduced trip charges because our service technicians are conveniently located nearby.

Kansas City, St Louis, Springfield, Omaha & Tulsa

Throughout our company’s history, our team’s hard work and dedication to superior service has distinguished us among our competitors and has directly resulted in continuous growth for our company. In 1994, we employed 3 people. Today, RJ Kool is proud to have a  large team of  employees, including six (6) Level 4 (Master) Unimac commercial laundry equipment service technicians. We are exceptionally proud of our service team. Our technicians are the most experienced and best trained in the industry and we are not the only ones who have noticed. Many of our commercial laundry equipment service technicians have received accolades and recognition from national industry leaders.

Do You Need Parts?

RJ Kool has acquired BDS Laundry, and we’re now proud to offer these parts as a part of RJ Kool.

RJ Kool Has Acquired BDS Laundry's Vended Laundry Division

Demographic shifts and changing consumer preferences mean big opportunities in the vended laundry business.

There are approximately 29,500 vended laundries in the United States, generating nearly $5 billion in gross revenue annually, according to research conducted by the Coin Laundry Association. The industry has evolved since its modest beginnings in the 1940s. In response to today’s busy lifestyles, the modern vended laundry offers the latest in advanced technology, as well as enhanced time saving features benefiting the customers and of course, you the owner.

Today’s vended laundries are equipped with a mix of multi-load machines that not only attract traditional self-service laundry users, but also customers who need to wash and dry big, bulky items like bedspreads, comforters, blankets and other items that are too large to fit in home laundry appliances. Many stores also offer comfort amenities such as lounge areas with TVs, complimentary Wifi and designated play zones for kids. The broad appeal across multiple market segments is a major reason why vended laundries continue to be an attractive business to own and operate.

If you are considering opening a new laundry, buying an existing one, or retooling an older location, BDS Laundry is ready to help turn your vision into reality — just like we did for Jeff and Annette Freking at Perry Creek Laundry. Our unmatched expertise combined with the top brands of equipment is your best assurance for long-term success.

We Focus on Serving You

Our Happy Clients Say It Best

We are in an industry that serves patients who are often in poor health and prone to illness. Having clean linens on-hand and the ability to process dirty linens is critical in an Assisted Living facility. Since we replaced our older equipment with more efficient Unimac commercial laundry equipment, The Living Center has seen a significant reduction in utility, linen and labor costs. Our laundry room smells cleaner and wash results have improved. Thanks RJ Kool!
