  • What motivated you to open your first Speed Queen laundry?  

Seeing the proliferation of the self-service laundry sector in Spain, I got interested in this kind of business. Looking at the different brands and manufacturers options, I opted for the pioneers, both in stores and good products manufacturing. 

  • Why did you choose Speed Queen? 

The choice was not very difficult, especially for the good advice from all the Speed Queen team. And thanks to the material’s quality used in the laundriesI didn’t have any doubts taking a decision. 

  • What are your business plans with Speed Queen? 

My business plan is to provide an excellent customer servicestanding out from the competition and offering the extra quality that Speed Queen offers. 

Obviously, it will depend on how both my two laundries go, but I’m open to new apertures. 

  • Has the process been easy? 

For me it has been very easy as the Speed Queen team has advised me from the beginning to the very end and that’s perfect. You can have your laundry in record time. 

  • Have you financed* your store with Speed Queen? 
ARTICLE +  Opening a laundromat in Paris (France)

Yes, I have financed it as the paperwork with Speed Queen –very different from the bank one– is easier. They offered me a great help with 6 months of vesting period so that the laundry is set up and running for a while before making the first payments.

*ALS financing options depend on current offer and are only available in France, Spain and Italy
