Today there’s a trend toward building larger coin laundries that provide more laundry-related services and extras to engage customers. We help you target your niche demographic by offering services that suit your clients’ laundry needs such as wash-dry-fold, alterations, drycleaning or delivery. We help you decide how to make your customers’ laundry experience more enjoyable with TV lounges, vending machines, children’s play areas, restaurants, tanning beds, video games, or wireless Internet access. All of these amenities can be components to modern coin laundries. The coin laundry industry remains robust, and at Laundry Shop we will help you get into business the right way – helping to ensure your store’s profitability over the long-term.
Coin Laundries: Past, Present & Future
Security of your Investment
Clean clothes, like food and shelter, are a basic human need. That’s why self-service laundries are often buffered from fluctuations in the economy, and why many industry experts refer to them as being nearly “recession-proof.” At Laundry Shop we work with our clients to create the most profitable and productive self-service laundries. We help you realize your dreams.
Yes, there’s a bright future for the coin-store owner, because national and regional demographics indicate renters occupy 32 percent of the nation’s 106.3 million households! This is particularly true in Florida, a state with ever-changing population and millions of tourists per year. Almost all of Laundry Shop’s clients test the water by purchasing one self-service laundry and then jump in with two feet after realizing the profitability of their investment! Nearly all of our clients ultimately become multi-store owners.
Coin/Card Laundries Popular with Homeowners
Contrary to popular belief, today’s self-service laundries are popular with homeowners and professionals, as well as with renters. With the average American workweek extending to more than five days, using a coin laundry saves time. It also saves money. Customers can save on their utility bills by doing their laundry at a self-service laundry. Laundry Shop works with every storeowner to slash their utility bills by installing the most energy-efficient laundry washers and dryers. Families with washers in their homes can also contribute significantly to the growth of the store. Non-traditional laundry items, such as rugs, comforters, drapery, tablecloths and other difficult to launder items, can contribute to coin laundry volume and profit. Moreover, with wash-dry-fold and drop-off drycleaning services, self-service laundries can successfully draw working professionals. Often, these services bolster a laundry’s bottom line by as much as 10 to 30 percent.
