30+ years in the laundry industry and I truly despise ugly, old, dilapidated Laundromats aka ZOMBIEMATS! I travel the country seeking them out and telling store owners to "Throw out their old machines". I then back it up with successful case studies from all over the country and then challenge them to seek out local distributors to RETOOL, REHAB and get RE-INVIGORATED about the laundry industry. When done right, this is a rewarding industry!
BTW I am the co-founder of Eastern Funding LLC(1997) and also a retired CPA (Very happy about that too) The Laundry industry has been great and is filled with some really great people!
