Weighing the options between a local or multinational uniform service? Many go with giant corporations out of convenience or name recognition. However, they’re almost always a worse choice than a local company. Here’s how family-run uniform rental companies beat multinationals:

Drawbacks of Multinationals

In order to understand how family-run uniform rental companies beat multinationals, we first need to examine what makes multinationals a bad choice. There are several drawbacks to multinational companies but here are the most severe and common ones. 


Multinational corporations are huge. This gives them the advantage of a wider service area but at the expense of convenience for their clients. Because of their size, there are far more hoops for clients to go through before they can get the services they need or even talk to the right people. This turns every interaction into a large timesink that is often unnecessarily long even for the simplest things. 

Depersonalized Service

Another disadvantage to such a wide service area is the inability to provide clients with personalized service. Multinational companies simply have too many clients to keep properly interact with as anything more than a number or brand. That’s why it is so difficult for people to trust the big brands they use. In fact, only one-third actually do

Bad for Local Communities

As a result of their depersonalized service and excessive bureaucracy, multinationals often care more about their bottom line than the communities they operate in. After all, pleasing their shareholders always comes first as opposed to building meaningful relationships and giving back to the community. 

Corporate Pricing Systems

Corporate-styled uniform rentals must answer to the whims of Wall Street investors, and this factor commonly results in escalated invoices and off-cycle price increases. The size of their service area and profit-driven motivations are a perfect storm for depersonalized service and volatile billing practices.
