A Proven Business Model

A laundromat investment offers stability, flexibility and other outstanding benefits that alternative investment opportunities simply cannot match. For more than 60 years, laundromats have consistently proven to be high-return investments. In fact, laundromat businesses located within the U.S. average a 20 to 35 percent return on investment.** 

Lower Startup Costs Than A Franchise 

There are many factors and risks involved in a franchise investment that you won't encounter with a laundromat investment. Opening a franchise typically means higher initial startup costs, ongoing franchise fees, liquid capital requirements and other investment roadblocks, whereas opening a vended laundry business provides a safer and more profitable investment. Advantages like low startup costs and high success rates make laundromats the ideal small business investment opportunity.

Higher Success Rate Than The Alternatives

Laundromats have a 94.5 percent success rate, specifically when backed with a manufacturer who has an experienced, in-house finance department.* You can greatly improve your chances for success with personalized, laundry-focused financing through Speed Queen® Financial Services.

Less Risk Than The Stock Market

Because clean clothes are a necessity, laundromat success is not tied to fluctuations in the economy. Not only is the commercial laundry industry substantial and stable, but laundromat investments tend to be profitable and recession-resistant. Plus, 90% of laundromat patrons become repeat customers. How’s that for a stable customer base?
