Laundromats 101

DSC 1128A basic introduction to Laundromats

HK Laundry Equipment has been helping our customers get into the Laundromat business for almost five decades. This is general, broad based information on the basics of building and analyzing a coin laundry business. This section of the website is designed to be an honest, informative presentation of the Laundromat business. To quote Sy Simms, "HK Laundry firmly believes that the most educated consumer is our best customer”.

In this world of rising costs, increasing more complex regulations and large corporations, independent entrepreneurs can still generate a profit. More and more foresighted businessmen are investing in HK Laundry equipped coin-operated Laundromats.  With a reasonably small down-payment coin laundry business owners have been able to provide themselves with a lucrative source of cash income.  While each Laundromat situation is an independent venture and must be considered as such, there are basic guidelines which have proven universal. These guidelines were created keeping the most common questions of a prospective Laundromat owner in mind and to assist him to plan a successful business. 

We have broken up our Laundromats 101 section into a series of pages including:
