PictureDescription
FAMILY-OWNED...CUSTOMER-FOCUSED 

The Subars are hands-on owners. Family values guide our everyday decisions that affect our customers, employees and community. Our mission is to build loyal relationships, so our decisions are based on that....not on things like "maximizing stockholder value".

EXPERIENCED, CARING EMPLOYEES

Model's Sales Reps are trained to ask the right questions to suggest a program that best fits your specific situation.  Our experienced RouteSales Service Reps average 12 years satisfying customers, and will keep you satisfied week after week.  Our Plant Manager, with nearly 30 years at Model, leads an experienced team that gets clothes, mats and towels clean, dry, repaired, and finished and sorted with care and detail.  Our office staff's average tenure is 13 years, so you can call them with any request.  We are here for the long-term.

COMFORTABLE TOUCH-TEX II FABRIC AND COMFORT-FLEX PANT

Model offers Red Kap's soft, comfortable, yet durable uniforms.  Our Comfort Pants have elastic tabs in the waist to provide a better, more comfortable fit to work better and reduce the costs and hassles of periodic size changes. Patented Touch-Tex II fabrics from VF, the world's largest work uniform manufacturer and maker of the Wrangler, Lee, Janzen and other brands, is more breathable and more absorbent, so the wearer is more comfortable all year around.  Ask us for a free demonstration of how our fabric beats the pants off the competition.

ACC-U-TRAK and ACC-U-SORT

One complaint of uniform rental customers is NOT getting back all the uniforms they send in to the laundry. Model's systems allow us to GUARANTY you get back all your uniforms. All uniforms are BAR CODED so we can continuously track, and AUTOMATICALLY SCAN to sort your garments accurately, every time. GUARANTEED!   Acc-U-Trak and Acc-U-Sort give guaranteed accuracy, accountability, and the information you need for a hassle-free uniform program. We put this information online for 24/7 account management. 
  • Eliminate "shortages" and hassles. Get what you pay for every week. Stop the wasted time your employees spend complaining about their uniform program to each other, and to the uniform driver.
  • Track weekly usage by employees. Know how well your program is utilized.
  • Assists you in making sure employees are in uniform.
  • Improved accountability reduces cost of "lost" garments.
  • Online reports show how many garments were turned in, and how many are still owed by an out-of-service wearer.
WASHABLE REPAIR TAG

"Repairs don't get done" are the #2 complaint for rental uniform wearers because most rental companies use a repair tag system that requires the laundry to remove the tag before laundering, then try to match up one of hundreds of tags with one of thousands of uniforms.  NO WONDER THE REPAIRS DON'T GET DONE.  Model uses a MULTI-OPTION SYSTEM to make requesting repairs EASY FOR THE WEARER! Repairs get done right the first time.

  • MODEL'S WASHABLE YELLOW REPAIR TAG assures that repairs get done, because it gets pinned to the garment and never gets separated.  Our Acc-U-Sort system automatically "sees" the yellow tag and diverts the garment to our experienced menders, and mended garments get right back in the regular load, and don't need to be manually sorted.
  • LARGE YELLOW FIX-IT BOARDS provide convenient storage for repair tags and pins. 
  • REPAIR BOXES make it even easier to request repairs and allows our RouteSales Reps to monitor your requests.
  • RED REPAIR BAGS offer yet another easy option to make it simple to request repairs, and make it fool-proof for us to make sure we get your repair done the first time.
  • REPAIR BONUS--Model's plant personnel are paid an incentive bonus for every garment they identify that needs repair.  We pay to make sure we find your repairs. We make sure there are "no holes in our systems."   

24/7 password-protected access to your account makes managing your program even more convenient
and hassle-free.  VIEW or PRINT:
  • Your current monthly statement
  • Any invoice up to six months old
  • How your checks were applied
  • Garment turn-in by wearer
  • Outstanding uniforms not-yet-returned by an ex-wearer, and the date they will be billed for if not yet returned
  • Garment order status for new wearers, size change, new accounts, replacements

SERVICE GUARANTY-- OUR PERSONAL MONEY-BACK PROMISE

We're so confident in our unique ability to provide dependable, hassle-free service every week, that we offer you the strongest guaranty in the business.  "If you terminate service because of service problems as described in Section (3), Model Will Pay Your First Month's Rental For These Services With Your New Rental Supplier."

OPTIONAL, FLEXIBLE VALUE PLANS

These Value Plans eliminate hassles associated with accounting for uniforms when an employee starts, quits, or has a size change, or just ‘loses uniforms’. Your time savings alone may pay for these plans. They allow you to manage your business more efficiently. NO HASSLES, NO SURPRISES. MORE VALUE!

  • Damage Protection-     NO CHARGE for damaged garments
