Demographic shifts and changing consumer preferences mean big opportunities in the vended laundry business.
There are approximately 35,000 vended laundries in the United States, generating nearly $5 billion in gross revenue annually, according to research conducted by the Coin Laundry Association. The industry has evolved since its modest beginnings in the 1940s. In response to today’s busy lifestyles, the modern vended laundry offers the latest in advanced technology, as well as enhanced time saving features benefiting the customers and of course, you the owner.
Today’s vended laundries are equipped with a mix of multi-load machines that not only attract traditional self-service laundry users, but also customers who need to wash and dry big, bulky items like bedspreads, comforters, blankets and other items that are too large to fit in home laundry appliances. Many stores also offer comfort amenities such as lounge areas with TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet and designated play zones for kids. The broad appeal across multiple market segments is a major reason why vended laundries continue to be an attractive business to own and operate.
