THEIR HISTORY, FUNCTIONING, PROFITABILITY

History of laundries

Public laundries are the precursors of modern self-service laundromats, places where the washerwomen of old used to wash clothes with soap, using a wooden board or even a stone. The washerwomen sometimes added ashes and sand to their rudimentary detergent to remove the most resistant smells and stains. The first laundromat was created in Texas in the 1930’s and except during the 50’s when most homes got equipped with their own washers, they kept booming and generating revenue ever since.

Today, self-service laundromats have little in common with laundries of yesterday: washing is no longer a chore, and washing machines have never been more efficient.

 

A SELF-SERVICE BUSINESS

How do laundromats work?

What has made the sucess of the laundromat concept since its creation has been the idea of self-service. The user should always be able to call in someone for help, but he comes to a laundromat to do things by himself. That’s why one of the key to succeed is to rely on long-lasting and strong laundry equipment. Machines that will stand hours and hours of service without failure.  Speed ​​Queen laundromats are equipped with the finest washing machines and laundry facilities in the world. Our washing machines are user-friendly, making it easy for anyone to wash or dry their laundry. For more information on using our equipment, see the article “How a Speed ​​Queen Laundromat Works“.

LIMITED CHARGES AND CONSTANT DEMAND

Why opening a self-service laundromat?

Even though most households have a domestic washing machine, the Speed Queen laundromats remain profitable. There are several reasons for this success:

Some people still don’t have a washing machine, sometimes by deliberate choice.

Some items, such as duvet, pillows, carpets, etc… can only be washed in a laundromat.

Washing your laundry in the laundromat saves time and money: in just one hour, you can wash 20 kg of laundry, at a professional level.

 

 

 
 

Demand is growing, even in times of crisis, and is varied: students, pensioners, managers and families use our self-service laundromats, all year round.
