Starting Your Laundromat

Owning a coin laundry is a rewarding occupation that is available to everyone. Clean clothes, like food and shelter, are a necessity of life, and coin laundries provide a basic health service for millions of Americans. With many different levels of involvement and countless sources of income, the coin laundry business is a rewarding investment. STN Laundry Systems, LLC provides all the information and guidance needed to start you on your venture. As our name describes, we are able to help from initial demographics to grand opening and beyond.

A Changing Market

The coin laundry business is undergoing a revolution. Laundromats are no longer dark, dingy, worn-out spaces where customers feel unsafe. New laundromats are bright, user-friendly areas that feature coffee bars, children's areas, Wi-Fi hot spots, and more. Talk to our team to find out how you can help your laundromat stand out.

Choose the Right Spot

Like the real estate market, much of the success of a laundromat depends on the ideal location. A dense population with lots of traffic — foot, vehicle, or both — is a must. Also keep in mind that renters generally make up most users of coin-op laundries. While coin-ops are found in virtually all neighborhoods across the country, our demographics reports will help pin point quality locations to maximize your investment.

Top-Notch Equipment

Quality washers and dryers will keep running for years, ensuring your laundromat will continue earning. Unlike other businesses that require heavy employee payrolls, laundromats are run by a few, dedicated employees. Your washers and dryers are the true workhorses of your business.

For this reason, it is important to make sure you use the highest quality equipment that will pay you back at the highest rate of return for the longest time possible. The customers pay you while doing their own labor, so provide them with an experience that will keep them coming back. You can do this by giving them washers that extract faster and dryers that dry faster.


Build Your Own Experience

Most laundromat owners have no industry experience before opening their first location. With the right preparation and ambition, almost anyone can become the owner of a self-service laundry. Our team is here to help your business get started on the right foot. Here are a few useful resources to get you started:
