Locating Your Store
Location is key to the success of your store. That's why it's critical to locate your store in a demographically appropriate area. There are many factors to consider, including traffic density, population, competition, availability of utilities, store visibility and even parking. We understand the Arizona laundry market is unique due to seasonal workers and tourism. After years of experience, our team has the know-how to maximize your client base and assist you in selecting the perfect location.
Sometimes it does not make economical sense to build a brand new laundry. Sunshine Sales also helps clients buy existing stores and replace and refurbish for new profitability!
Card- and coin-operated laundries can make excellent business investments. The typical store operates on a cash-in-advance basis with little inventory; thereby eliminating risks such as a control shrinkage, theft or spoilage. Plus, a card or coin laundry is an owner-controlled business, creating a great degree of management control.
But what about store's resale value? Most often, card- and coin-operated laundries pay for themselves in only a few years and can be sold at top dollar, according to the Coin Laundry Association (CLA), a non-profit, coin laundry trade association. In fact, most card- and coin-operated laundries enjoy higher resale values, even though laundry equipment depreciates. CLA research indicates that coin laundries typically sell for between three and seven times their net cash flow – with average historic returns exceeding 40 percent.
