Clean clothes, like food and shelter, are a basic human need. That's why card and coin laundry business are often buffered from fluctuations in the economy, and why many industry experts refer to them as being nearly recession-proof. Card or coin laundry business can make an excellent business investment. The typical card or coin operated store operates on a cash-in-advance basis with little inventory; thereby eliminating risks such as control shrinkage, theft and spoilage.
Card or Coin Op Laundries can also enjoy high gross profits and low operating expenses. So, as volume or average machine cycles increase, so do profits. Plus, a card or coin laundry business is owner-controlled, creating a greater degree of management control.
