Industry Leading Equipment
The equipment we specify is one of the largest commercial laundry manufacturers in the world. We utilize their AWS feature which determines the use of the precise amount of water needed to wash the clothes.
We also use their Eco Power dryer line. As the clothes dry, Eco Power determines the “dryness” of the clothes thereby reducing the amount of gas utilized as the load moves through its drying cycle.
We are aligned with the industry leader for commercial laundry equipment!

Electrolux Washers. They range from 20lb. to 77lb. machines. All are front loading and all operate the same way.
Electrolux Dryers. You can use your 30lb or 45lb dryer pockets. Remember, they are always HOT!
OUR EQUIPMENT SETS US APART
As a result of many years of research, we have found the best equipment on the market!
Our washers will automatically weigh your clothes and use the precise amount of water required for the best possible wash. (Our washers are the only machines on the market with this feature) They also extract at 450G Force. This provides a much cleaner wash and reduces your dry time.
Eco Power: We have the only dryers on the market that have a built in sensor that determines the “dryness” of the clothes. As the clothes dry, the dryers automatically adjusts the temperature for optimum drying. This saves the clothes from being scorched and helps the gas bill.
Dryer Reversing: Our dryers will reverse themselves during their cycle. This keeps the clothes free from being tangled up. This feature allows the clothes to dry faster. (Free clothes are happy clothes!) The clothes also have fewer wrinkles.
Eco Power and dryer reversing allow for the best energy savings in the industry.

(We never get tired of hearing how clean and professional our store is compared to the rest of our competitors) A clean, safe, and fully attended store maximizes the store’s potential and makes it a destination within its market.

Why our brand?
Right Location + Right Size Store + Right Equipment Mix = Max Profits!
We build and operate the stores for efficiency. Efficiency = profits. Why? Because extra equipment and non-essential equipment costs money, causes higher rent expenses and extra maintenance costs
This is critical to the success of your store. The right location can make or break a store. We will not tell you “yes” to any location you choose. We have studied the proper demographic criteria and matched that with the proper site criteria to choose the best location. This also tells us the proper store size to build within your market. We are not in the business of selling you equipment and walking away.
Layout & Store Design
We will provide the proper store design and layout for each location. (Don’t worry, we have done this before and know what you will need.) Our store design sets us apart from the standard laundromat.
After looking at your demographics, store location, and store size, we will work with you on the most effective equipment mix for maximum profits.
