SPEED QUEEN LAUNCHES ITS SELF SERVICE LAUNDRY BUSINESS IN POLAND
The world’s leading commercial laundry business – Alliance Laundry Systems – will be at Franczyza Expo in Warsaw to promote a new franchise investment opportunity for Polish entrepreneurs to create their own self-service laundry business under the global ‘Speed Queen’ brand in partnership with Sovrana Polska, its local distributor for the Speed Queen concept store.
Speed Queen is America’s largest commercial laundry brand, with an established reputation for reliability in thousands of existing self-service laundry businesses around the world. It is now harnessing both its technology and experience to deliver a proven investment opportunity throughout Europe.
And it is already showing that it is a proven business performer for investors who want to be their own boss, with a network of more than 60 stores across Europe in the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Lithuania, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, and Austria.
Maurizio Tormena, Project Director EMEA for the Speed Queen Concept Store is excited about the future: “Poland is a virgin market for self-service laundries,” he explains.
“But as we have proved in other part of Europe, when such a service is offered, it is then used and embraced by communities as a unique, fast, clean and affordable way to wash and dry their clothes as well as larger items such as bed covers, curtains and duvets, etc. which cannot be washed easily at home. Franczyza Expo will be the perfect place for Speed Queen to show this new potential business to investors.”
A self-service laundry presents a very different opportunity from ‘traditional’ franchise-based investments that focus on fast food or retail: Unlike other comparable investment opportunities, there are no ongoing royalties or commissions to be paid. It does not involve onerous stock management issues, and because the operation is ‘self-service’, no employees are required. The amount of time an owner needs to spend to manage a Speed Queen Self-Service Laundry is reduced to the minimum.
The amount of specialist knowledge required is also minimal, beyond having the skill to recognize an investment opportunity that delivers steady and predictable returns, and that is effectively ‘recession proof’ since laundry is a basic need.
“Our ambition is to build a network of more than 1,500 new stores across Europe,” Maurizio adds, “working with investors who want a proven business model that allows them to become their own boss, supported in every step by the World No.1 in commercial Laundry.”
A Speed Queen branded store will suit somebody looking for a business opportunity that presents reliable returns and a stable cash flow but that requires limited investment in time. It may be ideal for those looking for a career change and those with a cash sum to invest, or someone considering retirement that wants to supplement their income.
