Vended Business Opportunities

Investment opportunities abound when it comes to the vended laundry industry. But planning a card- or coin-operated laundry isn't easy. At CG West, we partner with investors and walk them through the process of coin laundry site selection, equipment mix, layout and flow, amenities and financing. A successful card/coin laundry requires a solid business plan with a clear view of an area’s demographics and the right equipment mix. Rely on us to assist you in the development of a successful vended laundry.

A Recession Resistant Business

Vended laundries have evolved considerably in terms of offerings, technology and demographics served. And, as always, vended laundries are often buffered from fluctuations in the economy because clean clothes are a basic human need. When the economy is slow, there is often a greater need for self-service laundries because ownership of washers and dryers decreases. Today, vended laundries cater to full-service and self-service clientele for improved revenue, stability and profitability.

Profitability & Uniqueness

Through careful differentiation of your new coin- or card-operated laundry, you can attract non-traditional customers as well as traditional self-service customers — adding to profitability. Simultaneously, through careful selection of equipment, laundries can cut utility usage, improve customer turnover and boost revenue. At CG West, our laundry development experts understand how to help you optimize your store for maximum revenue and profits.
