INVESTING IN A COIN LAUNDRY

You need only look around a commercial area to see the success of businesses catering to our fast-paced society needs. Drive-through coffee shops, 10-minute oil change, fast-food restaurants and automatic car wash franchises are just a few of the models turning time savings into profits.

Coin laundries are providing similar efficiency with their large, multi-load commercial laundry equipment. These machines enable customers to reduce what would be an all-day task in their homestyle washer and dryer, to just one hour at a vended laundry.

Investors have been parlaying time savings into big profits, particularly in the United States, where coin laundries generate $5 billion annually, according to the Coin Laundry Association (CLA).

Adding to the appeal of self service vended laundries as an investment opportunity is the fact that clean clothes are a necessity. One can choose not to go out for lunch, a premium cup of coffee or even wash their car. But clean clothes are a must. That fact also makes the business virtually recession proof.

And coin laundries deliver benefits other ventures can't, starting with no franchise fees. Once you open a vended laundry, the business is all yours. Unlike many other small business ventures, vended laundries have no on-going corporate mandates or annual franchise fees.

    Additional benefits include:
  • Great potential ROI of 25 to 35 percent
  • Cash business
  • Payment upfront before service
  • Off-site management - you determine your own level of involvement
  • No payroll/withholding headaches
