A Sound Investment.

Laundromats thrive in both periods of economic growth and recession. Laundromats see an average cash-on-cash ROI of 20–35%* in the U.S. — much higher than most alternative investments. And when you factor the flexibility and low labor costs, laundromats just make sense.Since 1908, Speed Queen has been a leader in commercial laundry and understands the industry inside out.

And now we’ve taken one of the few remaining fragmented industries and transformed it into a growing global laundry brand.
