With over 55 years in business, the team at Metropolitan Laundry Machinery Sales Inc. has the experience and expertise to guide you through 2023 and beyond. Our Director of Operations, Evan Katz, shares these insights about the commercial laundry equipment trends in 2023:

“Replacement of aging commercial laundry equipment is a continuing trend in 2023, for both existing store owners with one or more laundromat locations, and even new investors looking for their first existing-laundromat location to purchase. Existing store owners who own their own real estate, or are renewing leases with their landlords, and/or new investors that are purchasing an existing laundromat location, are intent on upgrading to new energy efficient washers & dryers that yield significant cost-savings on utilities, including water and gas. They are also continuing to leave coin-collection in the past, by introducing modern vended laundry payment system technologies, that offer significant benefits and improvements to the efficiency of their business, and their customer experience.”

What to Expect in 2023

In 2023, commercial laundry equipment will continue to improve and grow as you expect more out of your equipment. Here’s what our expert team at Metropolitan Laundry Machinery Sales Inc. expects to see more of this year. 

Smart Payment Systems

Modern laundry technology requires fewer coins and is instead moving to credit card and debit card, loyalty card, and smartphone app laundry payment options

Customers can swipe or tap their cards, allowing them to pay quickly and conveniently. They can easily see what they’ve been charged with each swipe and add more money if needed. 

Smartphone apps allow customers and tenants to pay for their loads of laundry from their phones. This is a secure and convenient payment option for them as they utilize your laundry room or business. 

Smart Appliance Features

Smart commercial laundry equipment connects with a customer’s phone and can send alerts to notify customers when their laundry is done and if machines are open. 

These alerts help customers plan their schedule and avoid driving or walking to the Laundromat if machines are in use. It helps balance out peak times and minimize congestion in your Laundromat facility for increased profitability and customer satisfaction. 

Smart laundry equipment will also allow customers to stop or start their loads of laundry with their phones and set cycle preferences. You’re increasing your revenue per load by making upsells like extra rinse cycles or hot water easy to add. 

Reduced Energy and Water Consumption

Modern laundry machines will continue to become more efficient. Washers and dryers will allow you to track your energy usage and help determine load pricing when your laundry room is busiest. 

Stronger spin cycles will also help to reduce water usage and dry times, saving your customers time while increasing the profit of your laundry business.
