Why Invest in a Laundromat?

When looking for a small business investment opportunity, the first thing you probably want to know is if it is profitable. When it comes to a laundromat business, the answer to that question is a resounding “yes.” In fact, laundromats in the U.S. see an average ROI of 20-35% – much higher than most alternative investment opportunities. When considering additional benefits such as independence, flexibility, modest costs and recession resistance, there truly is no business like the laundromat business.


Proven Business Model

Every investment has its advantages and disadvantages, depending on your own personal business goals. The laundromat business is no different. But with a unique combination of stability, flexibility and profitability, laundromat investments are in a class all by themselves. Uncommon benefits of a laundromat business include:

High Success Rate
Impressive ROI
Recession Resistance
Adaptable to Your Lifestyle
All-Cash Business
Advanced Controls
Low Labor Costs
Tax Advantages
Stable Customer Base


Better than Alternative Investment Opportunities

There are many options available to those looking to invest their money. However, when compared to a laundromat investment, many of these investment alternatives fall short in a number of key areas that affect profitability and overall success. Advantages a laundromat business holds over comparable investments include:

Lower startup costs than franchises
No ongoing franchise fees
Higher resistance to recession than the stock market
Comprehensive support absent in similar independent businesses
