Vended Laundry Solutions

Whether you are operating an established card or coin operated laundry, or thinking about opening one, Continental can show you creative ways to get the most from your investment.

Clean clothes, like food and shelter, are a basic human need. That’s why card and coin laundry investments are often buffered from fluctuations in the economy and why many industry experts refer to them as being nearly recession-proof. The typical card or coin operated laundry investment operates on a cash-in-advance basis with little inventory.

While there are loads of options on the market, it’s critical to select the right card or coin operated laundry equipment. Your equipment mix is critical to lowering overhead costs, such as natural gas, electricity and water; drawing customers who crave a quicker wash and dry; boosting customer turnover; quick and easy installations; and unrivaled storeowner programmability.

If you are thinking about upgrading your card or coin laundry, consider making it an Express Laundry Center, or simply replacing a single lane of hard-mount washers with an Express Lane of high-speed, freestanding ExpressWash Washers! It isn’t as difficult as it may seem!

Continental Girbau distributors build spectacular card- and coin-operated laundries. Here, we share a few images, videos and editorial links of some of our successful storeowners. We hope they trigger ideas that you might make reality!

Large-capacity washers help you to stand apart from the competition, are more profitable than smaller washers, and attract both traditional and non-traditional customers – allowing you to appeal to your entire demographic. Carefully selected, large-capacity washers can positively impact your business for years to come.
