Midwest Towel

Midwest Towel

Mid-West Towel was a clean towel and linen service that opened in 1933. They were originally located on S Walnut, near 9th St., but moved to 509 E. Main St, the former site of The City Laundry. They laundered dining linens, bed sheets, and towels, and also sold dust mops and paper products.. Mid-West Towel was known for their billboard, which was in the shape of a delivery truck and featured a mannequin inside.

The company expanded to Toledo and Lima, Ohio. Mid-West Towel updated their name to Mid West Services in 1988, as well as upgrading its facilities. They were bought in 1992 by Unitog, who, in 1999 were purchased by Cintas. Cintas closed the facility in the late 2000s, and in 2016, Madjax Makerforce opened in the building. Since then, Madjax have updated the iconic billboard, restoring and redressing the mannequin and adding neon to the sign for the first time.
