Prior to starting Express Linen Service, owner, Theresa Phan, created beautiful and memorable wedding receptions through MIMI’s Bakery and Decoration. Then, as MIMI’s grew from a service that supported only its immediate community to a service that expanded to supporting events in multiple states, Theresa became aware that her customers consistently needed elegant table cloths and chair covers. So she developed her own proprietary patterns, secured yardage from the best mills in the country and founded Express Linen Service.

Today Tukwila-based Express Linen Service specializes in creating and renting elegant and affordable linen, napkin, table runner, table-overlay, and chair cover rentals for every type of occasion. The items are manufactured using Express Linen Service’s proprietary patterns and are available in a wide variety of colors and fabrics.

In order to provide high quality at an affordable price, all linens are washed and pressed after each use in Express Linen Service’ own laundry.

Express Linen Service’ clients include retail clients, leading hotels, restaurants, country clubs, banquet facilities, and event planners.

Express Linen Service finds its success in its ability to listen to the needs of its customers and staff. By listening, they are able to help create memorable, unique environments for each event.

A 20% discount is available to contracted vendors and retail clients are welcome.

The show room is located at 14603 35th Ave. S. Tukwila WA 98168.
