Coast Linen Services was started by the Santonello family in Hoboken, New Jersey shortly after World War II. All of the linens were washed, dried, and folded in a garage and then personally delivered to the customers. Within just a few years, the Santonello family opened up a laundry in Newark, New Jersey that served local restaurants, bars, barbershops, and auto body shops with uniforms, aprons, towels, and table linen. Over the next two decades, Coast Linen grew to become the largest linen supply company in New Jersey. The business has continued to thrive as it has been passed on to the next generation of the Santonello family. When Coast Linen decided it was time to expand its horizons, they opened up another facility in Neptune, New Jersey. Over the course of the next 30 years, the business would continue to expand into South Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York City. Coast Linen now has over 40 routes and has no intention of slowing down any time soon.
