Express Laundry Center

The Express Laundry Center™ package is a proven and complete turnkey solution for new coin and card-operated laundries. The Express Laundry Center brand teams highly efficient, high-speed laundry equipment and multiple services with local marketing and management support. It is a complete store solution available to investors only through Continental Girbau Inc.

A Proven Brand

The Express Laundry Center brand is free of franchise restrictions, costs and red tape. It brings a complete solution to investors looking for a proven, vended laundry brand. The Express Laundry Center package delivers huge advantages to owners:

  • A Proven Brand and Turnkey Solution
  • 60-minute Wash/Dry Fold Customer Promise
  • Low Utilities
  • High-Speed Laundry Equipment
  • Bolstered Customer Turnover
  • Training & Management Support
  • Marketing and Public Relations Support
  • Unique Store Services

Reduced Utilities for Bolstered Profits

Express Laundry Centers are unique – delivering craved services to attract a variety of demographic groups, from families to professionals and singles. While the average vended laundry’s profits are hacked by catapulting utility costs, Express Laundry Center profits aren’t. Express Laundry Centers boast highly efficient equipment engineered to save water, electricity and natural gas.

60-Minute Wash/Dry/Fold

Equipped with ExpressWash™ Washers, Express Laundry Centers can serve more customers per day using less electricity, water and natural gas. Simple-to-install ExpressWash Washers ensure customers a 60-minute wash/dry/fold – a marketing hook that draws and retains customers!

ExpressWash Washer High-Speed Advantage

ExpressWash are freestanding washers that reach extract speeds of up to 381 G-force. Traditional hard-mount washers normally achieve extract speeds of just 75-200 G-force. By generating more than double the G-force extract, ExpressWash Washers remove more water from every load. This cuts resulting dry time by up to 50 percent (when compared with hard-mount washers) – lowering natural gas consumption and laundry completion time. While customers complete laundry in under an hour, owners realize higher profits!

Maximized Efficiency

Did you realize that the average vended laundry outputs more than 26 percent of its gross revenue to utilities, according to a recent Coin Laundry Association (CLA) industry survey. Not Express Laundry Centers! This is because ExpressWash Washers are engineered to cut gas, water and electricity use. They also feature a freestanding and sump-less design, high-speed G-force extract, exclusive AquaFall® and AquaMixer® systems, and superior owner programmability.

Control Flexibility

The ProfitPlus™ Control on ExpressWash Washers works with card technology or coins and brings more washing options and cycle features to the customer. It offers four primary cycle options: SUPERWASH, HOT, WARM and COLD. It also allows the customer to add an EXTRA WASH, EXTRA RINSE and/or DELICATE CYCLE. ProfitPlus gives customers what they want—more control over how their laundry is washed. It also puts storeowners in the driver’s seat by allowing programmability of G-force extract, mechanical action, wash temperature by degree, water levels and wash/rinse/ extract time in each phase. Through proper programming, Express Laundry Centers can curb utilities and effectively shorten the time it takes customers to complete laundry.

ExpressDry™ Dryers

Express Laundry Centers include a line-up of ExpressDry™ commercial dryers, which use fewer BTUs per load when compared to most other dryers on the market. They also offer superior programmability, durability and ease of use! Available in 30-, 55- and 75-pound capacity single-pocket models and 30- and 45-pound capacity dual-pocket stacks, ExpressDry commercial dryers are Continental’s fastest and most efficient dryers. They reduce the natural gas consumed to dry a load by up to 7.1 percent. As a result, Express Laundry Centers lower operating costs! Did you know a 3,500-sq.-ft. Express Laundry Center would save an estimated $30,797/year in utility costs when compared to a traditional hard-mount washer store?

Marketing & Management Support

As an Express Laundry Center investor, you gain access to professionally designed advertising, including a vast array of support pieces that have been tested and proven in the industry. Additionally, you are privy to management and training tools, including employee handbooks, operational procedures, employee training materials and more. It’s simpler to run a successful business when you have adopted a successful management and training framework. Express Laundry Center owners can tap into carefully and professionally created management and marketing tools that save them time and help eliminate mistakes.
