Who We Are
Brio Laundry: Disrupting the Laundry Industry Since 2013.
Colleen Unema brought Brio Laundry to life as a second career, based on her values and ideas about environmental sustainability, outstanding customer service, and making the world a cleaner place. People noticed the difference right away, and Brio Laundry became a beacon for both customers and other aspiring entrepreneurs
Brio Cleaners: The Next Logical Step.
In 2019, Colleen brought her vision to the dirtiest part of the cleaning industry – dry cleaning. Brio Cleaners is a truly CLEAN establishment, using just water, steam and all natural soaps, the wet-cleaning process ensures no noxious fumes and offers customers an elevated level of service as well as superior sustainability for the care of fine garments.
Laundry University: Bringing the Vision to You.
In 2021, Colleen stepped away from the daily running of Brio Laundry and Cleaners, passing the torch to her son, Travis. Her new passion, echoing her first career as an educator, is teaching others how to replicate her Laundry Success Story. She hopes to train a new generation of laundry owners and operators how to make CLEAN fun and sustainable. And profitable. It’s all part of her work ethic: People, Planet, Profit.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many Courses are there?There are Four Courses. Each Course has 5 to 8 Lessons. The Courses start at the very beginning and progress into more detailed laundry processes.
How long will it take me?Each Lesson will take about thirty minutes. Each Lesson has a short Video, often with explanatory text and graphics, followed by a Quiz. Completing the short Quiz unlocks the next Lesson and offers students a Quick Reference Guide covering what they just learned.
Do I need a Desktop Computer?Not necessarily. It is true that in Desktop the videos will be bigger and the text more readable, and the University’s Student Dashboard and other elements are more complete and easier to use. But using any device with an internet connection will still work.
Can I pick and choose what classes are right for me?Good question! The University progresses from simple to complex; simply move through them and rewatch the ones you most need instruction on. We strongly suggest practicing the lessons in real life as you learn new laundry skills.
