Like any other investment, getting into the coin laundry industry requires careful due diligence and advance planning. It is important to do some basic research first to determine if this is a good investment for your particular situation. Start by analyzing your own financial situation. What is your net worth? What free cash do you have available? What free time do you have available?
Next is selecting the right distributor. This step is crucial.

With demographics in mind, develop the mix of models and capacities that your customers will appreciate. Statewide Machinery Inc. can help you with your model selections and store layout.
