The History of All Washed Up
Shantae Holmes, owner of All Washed Up, has always known that she wanted to start her own business.
The action steps to become an entrepreneur became a reality after Shantae learned about her mother’s plan to relocate to another state. At that time, her mother suggested to Shantae that it was time for her to pursue her dreams. Her mother sold her long-time home and gave Shantae her very first financial investment to pursue her business idea.
We are the only Laundromat located in NW MPLS, and our goal is to make concrete connections with the community.
Shantae enrolled in the Lutheran Social Service financial literacy classes (LSS) and was accepted into the Individual Investment Account program (IDA). Once Shantae completed the program, she accumulated more money to add to her business idea and made some significant improvements on her credit. One of Shantae’s mentors, Darryl of Northend Hardware store. He was the first person who gave her the vision of starting a laundromat by giving me a two-page pamphlet about the laundry industry. Daryl has been a very important support vessel from the start of the project up to the current day. From there, Shantae connected with a distributor based in Minnesota, which was connected with national Laundromat associations, to learn as many facets as possible about the laundry industry. After completing the LLS classes, Shantae learned about the Neighborhood Development Class (NDC), sponsored by The Northside Economic Opportunity Network (NEON), in North Minneapolis.
Shantae was ready to take things to the next level by completing her business plan, so she enrolled and was accepted into the class. NEON used its network partner Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers (MCCD). Together with Kris Maritz of MCCD and Grover Jones, Shantae worked fine-tuning her financial projections to fit 'today’s market'. N.E.O.N. and M.C.C.D. decided to take the nontraditional, nonprofit lending route. Both organizations used their networks to pull lending sources together from five areas in order to make Shantae’s $300,000 financing work. The partners who helped finance All Washed Up include NDC, MCCD, City of Minneapolis CPED and MEDA.
Last but not least, the Wellington Company (known as Penn Lowry Crossing). Wellington is a private investor that made a major investment in All Washed Up by customizing the space specifically for the Laundromat. From beginning to end, the entire process of launching her business, learning about entrepreneurship and the industry, working on her personal credit and assets, planning her business, working on the business build-out and financing her business took approximately three years to complete. This dynamic group of people refused to give up on Shantae’s dreams of becoming an entrepreneur. All Washed Ups' story is a perfect example of how entrepreneurs, non-profits, government, private investors and the community can work hand-in-hand to support and build community businesses.
All Washed Up is located in a spacious, 3,128-square-foot building with four different size washers, and 22 dryers.
