12th March, Maribor, Slovenia: Speed Queen, the world’s most successful self-service laundry brand, is to open a new branded store in Maribor.

It marks the continuation of an ambitious programme by Speed Queen to create up to 1,500 branded stores across Europe, working with investors to capitalize on the stability, profitability and flexibility that the self-service laundry industry offers.

The store, in Borštnikova ulica 33A, 2103 Maribor, Slovenia, is equipped with 13 of the industry-leading Speed Queen washers and dryers that deliver the highest performance and reliability within the self-service laundry business. The stores are designed to be clean, spacious and modern as part of a new generation of facilities that the company has envisaged.

A self-service laundry presents a very different opportunity from ‘traditional’ franchise investments that focus on fast food or retail: it does not involve the management of perishable goods or onerous stock issues, and because the operation is ‘self-service’ the number of staff required is minimal, which also reduces the amount of time an owner needs to spend on the business.

Speed Queen Branded Stores have been opened in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Croatia and Lithuania as potential investors are attracted by a business opportunity that offers entrepreneurs a highly profitable and recession-resistant business model with low initial start up costs and dependable returns. The concept has already seen more than 16,000 Speed Queen equipped stores created in the US alone.
