A Stable and Superior Investment

Vended laundries have long been considered recession resistant, staying highly profitable through economic downturns. That stability was amplified during the recent pandemic, as laundromats were one of few businesses to be designated “essential.”

With an ultra-high success rate of 94.8 percent, a cash-on-cash ROI of 20 to 35 percent and a simple management structure, laundromats are an attractive investment, regardless of the economic landscape.
