The Woman behind the Bubbles...
Deanna Caprini-Fusch is the Founder/CEO and the "woman who wears all the hats" owner of Tons of Bubbles Laundromat,Inc. since its origination in 2004. When she tells people that she is an owner of laundromats they go, really!? YOU? It is kind of funny considering her least favorite domesticated duty is doing laundry :). Nevertheless, she has an un-explained love for her laundromats.
On November 21, 2004 (her 22nd birthday) Deanna gave birth to Tons of Bubbles Laundromat, Inc. She was a young woman, well beyond her years that knew at just 18 years old that she one day wanted to have a family. In order to be the Mom, that she wanted to be she knew working 9-5 wasn't going to a forever thing. She also knew, being a full-time stay at home mom was also not her craft, she wanted both, so being her own boss was the only answer. Growing up in a large Italian household, where working hard was a part of everyone's life in the house, and being raised in a family business, Deanna saw from a little girl that to have whatever you want in life-you must work for it and most of all do it yourself! So, Deanna did just that. With a crazy work ethic, and a fierce passion to succeed Deanna balanced a career in the high stress world of Finance, attended college and built her stores, simultaneously, for years. The days were long, and hard, very hard. But, she credits being so young, to "doing it all". Her passion was fierce and and her drive was endless and her goals were aggressive.
Her first location was 1498 Fulton Street in San Francisco. By 2006 Deanna had acquired two additional Bubble locations, which she is still currently operating. In November 2012, she gladly opened her first card-store (and fourth laundromat) located at 210 College Ave in SF. In 2017 she opened her 5th store in San Francisco's adorable hood of Cole Valley that takes all major credit cards, and coin. We are fancy!!
The Tons of Bubbles atmosphere is a true depiction of the personality and child-like side that Deanna has within her. Its fun, whimsical and truly carefree. No sterile walls in here! Here's a hint: there's TONS OF BUBBLES! :) She loves to have fun, be silly and sometimes act like a kid, however she never loses sight of the business at hand. She visits the laundromats daily, has her personal phone number and email up to be easily and readily available to all customers. She takes great pride in her customer service and her accessibility to her customers.
Within the 14 years in the industry we have really set ourselves apart and have proven that laundromats and doing your laundry can be enjoyable. With free wi-fi offered at all stores, comfy seating, ample folding tables, great locations and top of the line machines. We have really set a high-standard in this industry, oh and being a sole-woman run company is pretty cool too! " I am woman, hear me ROAR'!!
Deanna is a proud native of the San Francisco Bay Area. She currently resides in Orinda with her amazing husband, Kevin, her mini-me, daughter Giulianna, and their rescue mutt, Rocco! She attended San Jose State University where she majored in Psychology. When she's not sharing giggles or being a big kid with her daughter, or tending to her stores, Deanna is passionate about staying fit and healthy with circuit training, hot yoga, and running just to name a few. She loves the summers at the "boathouse", going to a matinee by herself and doing anything that allows her to be pampered!
If you ever see her, please say "hello"!! She loves to meet new customers and hear their stories.
We welcome you to the experience that is Tons of Bubbles! We hope you love us and we thank you in advance for coming to our stores!
Deanna (Ms. Bubbles)
