Our Story

The Blue Kangaroo has been a local, family owned company for 30 years. We have earned our reputation for quality in the self-service laundry market throughout Chicagoland, Southeast Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana.

Our Blue Kangaroo stores are thoughtfully designed from the interior layout to the exterior landscaping.  Our laundries are primarily free-standing buildings and accommodates plenty of parking. Blue Kangaroo laundries are fully equipped with several sizes of washers, including huge 8-load machines for large family washes. While visiting, customers enjoy wide aisles, large folding tables, and convenient mini-mart stocked with various sizes and brands of soap, detergent, fabric softeners, bleach, cloth laundry bags, hangers, and other useful items. Most Blue Kangaroos offer a Kids Korner area with seating and children’s television programming.  

Blue Kangaroos are fully attended and our staff is well-trained, courteous, and here to help.  Our stores are in a continuous state of improvement with upgrades, maintenance, and re-equipping to serve our customers better.

Our philosophy is to serve our neighborhoods with the finest amenities available, and to transform the drudgery of wash day into a pleasant and social experience for budget-minded customers.
