The problem with most high-profit businesses is that you spend so much time on the job that you have little free time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. But coin-operated laundries are different. They're low-maintenance, recession-proof, and you can make as much as $200,000 a year working only part-time hours. But you have to know what you're doing. And with our guide, you will.
You'll get an in-depth overview of the industry (where its been and where it's likely to go) and learn everything you need to know before launching your own self-serve laundry business including:
New ideas for marketing your laundry
An expanded section on hiring and training attendants
Updated information on card systems
Recent advances in laundry equipmen
The latest on laws and regulations concerning laundries
More ways to combine a laundry with other businesses
You'll also get first-hand advice from successful coin-op laundry owners on how to create an inviting atmosphere that will draw customers in and keep them coming back.
Clean clothes are a necessity, not a luxury. People are going to use laundromats no matter how the stock market is performing. So if you're looking for an easy-to-run business that will keep the cash flowing no matter how the rest of the economy is doing, you've found it.
