Advantages to owning a Coin or Card Operated Laundry

Coin Laundries are an all cash, no inventory business that offers investors many advantages, including:

  • High Return on Investment
  • Ability to control your work schedule with flexible hours
  • No experience necessary
  • Liquidity
  • Tax benefits
  • Fast-growing equity

The cost of buying an existing Laundromat usually ranges from $500,000 to $2,000,000 depending on the size, age, lease, and income of the store.

Today, the size of a typical Laundromat ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 square feet, however some stores are only 1,000 square feet and others are well over 6,000 square feet.

Most Laundromats occupy retail space leased on a long-term basis (20-30 years). Negotiating a good lease is one of the most important parts of developing a new laundry or purchasing an existing one. Metropolitan is very experienced in this area and is prepared to assist you with your lease negotiations.
