Clean Laundry Overview
Clean Laundry is a chain of licensed self-service laundry facilities that offer multi-load small and large capacity washers and dryer, and modern amenities such as large-screen televisions, wireless Internet and cushioned seating. These well-lit, spacious and clean environments are open 24 hours. Security video monitoring, water-softening systems and an energy-efficient design are additional forward-thinking business practices. Clean Laundry prides itself on its non-traditional style within the self-service laundry industry.
Clean Laundry Licensing Overview
Clean Laundry is an intelligent, conservative investment with proven results. Coin laundries have consistently been a profitable market niche, but they have lacked consistent marketing concepts and operational controls. Now the market is rapidly expanding due to an uptick in the number of multiple-family housing arrangements. Combine this expanding need with the decrease in available free time for most mid- and entry-level wage earners and you have a solid underserved market. Clean Laundry stores allow people of all backgrounds to get their laundry done in less time than they can anywhere else. All while being in a welcoming, safe, clean, and eco-friendly environment.
