Business Summary:
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)

Fantastic absentee business model
Extremely low employee count

Safety (women especially want to feel safe)
Friendly, helpful staff

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.
