LIKE A FRANCHISE WITHOUT THE FEES
An Express Laundry Center is similar to a franchise, but has no franchise fees, red tape or restrictions. It's simply a proven brand and concept that helps differentiate your vended laundry from your competitors' vended laundries. Additionally, they are equipped and designed for more profit potential!
EXPRESSWASH WASHERS & EXPRESSDRY DRYERS
Outfitted with a mix of ExpressWash and ExpressDry equipment, Express Laundry Centers use considerably less water, energy and natural gas than most other laundries. ExpressWash Washers, which are freestanding and available in multiple capacities, use less water and energy when compared to traditional hard–mount washers. They also reach considerably higher extract speeds, and in doing so, remove more water from every load. In turn, loads take up to 50 percent less time to dry. Owners save utility costs – including natural gas to run the dryers – and boost profit potential. Customers enjoy a 60̵minute wash and dry!
60-MINUTE WASH AND DRY
Thanks to ExpressWash Washers, which produce exceptional extract speeds, it takes less time for customers to complete laundry. That 60–minute wash/dry promise will attract and retain customers! It will also make your vended laundry unique among its competitors!
IMPROVED CUSTOMER TURNOVER
At Express Laundry Centers, customers complete laundry sooner. This boost in customer turnover directly and positively impacts revenue and profit.
UNIQUE STORE SERVICES
Express Laundry Centers often provide Drop & Shop and Load & Leave services, along with additional amenities for greater customer appeal. Express Laundry Centers give storeowners the means to tap into the huge market of non–traditional customers – helping bolster revenue.
