Business Description

This franchise has developed a system to change the way coin laundry locations are perceived and operated. The industry has primarily been made up of Mom and Pop operators who are taken advantage of by the washer and dryer Distributors whose sole purpose is to sell equipment to these non-business savvy operators. The industry has no brand, no business sophistication and massive turn over from operator to operator.


This franchise's secret is location, location, location. They have developed their own proprietary approach to discerning the best possible real estate play for their locations. It includes :

Right Site (Understand Demographics and Competition)

Right Size (Best size store based above)

Right Mix (Best mix of Equipment for the Site)

Maximum Profits (Keep all costs under control)



Key Factors :

Fantastic absentee business model

Extremely low employee count

Makes money when the franchisee is not around

Additional sources of revenue like vending machines

Best Construction for reduced costs

Green Initiatives
Partnership with Goodwill Industries

Equipment partnership for best equipment at lowest cost

Economic equipment operates at lowest energy costs

What Does a Laundromat Customer Want?

Cleanliness is always #1,

Safety (women especially want to feel safe)

Friendly, helpful staff

Convenience (good parking, etc.)

Speed in and out.

Full-time attendants

Wash, Dry and Fold services

Free Wi-Fi

Working equipment (this is in line with cleanliness)

Hot dryers (equipment quality)

Price is important, but is down on the list.


Keeping up the appearance of the store is critical. Touch up paint (constantly), clean bathrooms, clean ceiling fans, no dust, no clutter with little signs and other crap on the walls, plants, etc. give a professional, branded appearance. We constantly hear this is the nicest laundromat I have ever been in. What is the role of the franchisee? Service, Service, Service.
