OVER A CENTURY AGO ... It was 1889 when George A. Steiner worked his way through high school delivering towels for a local laundry in Lincoln, Nebraska. Driven by his young, entrepreneurial spirit and foresight, he purchased the business for $50.80 - half down, half later.

He called the business American Linen Supply and as it grew, he formed a partnership with his brother Frank. Together they made deliveries from a green & white hand cart they pushed through the city streets. It wasn't long before the hand cart was upgraded to a horse-drawn wagon. Business continued to boom and their Lincoln business expanded to Minneapolis, Minnesota and Vancouver, British Columbia in the early 1920's.
