Bathroom(s, if at all possible) above all else!!!! And bill changer. Baby steps as your laundromat establishes itself since you need to replace items, new washers for the greasers I think would be a great draw and chance to market it, that and a great detergent. Take a good long look at their books, we did that on a business years ago and were glad we did and passed on it. Any ideas on how to make those greasers more comfortable while there waiting?

We've (my son and I) have talked about WiFi. Here are some other things we've talked about...

WiFi
Soda/Snack Machine
Television
Bathroom (there isn't one now)
Bill Changer

It isn't a large laundromat, but there are already three tables for folding and about five or six chairs. Right now there are 12 working top load washers, a couple of extra large front load washers, five normal sized front load washers and five or six older top load washers. Different ones of these do not work and will need to be replaced. Out of all the dryers, maybe 12, I know most need replaced. We figured instead of trying to replace everything at once, we would replace a couple of the dryers and made sure the extra large front load washers are working along with some washers for greasers. We're an oilfield town so it's important to have machines for those.

Laundromats, mostly forgotten but what a necessity at times when you least expect it.

Hard to say what to do, something unique and not expensive but would make it worth your while and investment. Any laundromat I've been in lately are crowded with limited seating and folding areas, the plus for them is they are clean and well lit. Not sure about where you are, sad to say around here you have to have wifi for any business.

Maybe do a survey among family and friends even your students and come up with something from that.

I'm looking at a laundromat that is for sale. Half of the building is a laundromat and the other half can be used as another business.

Besides washers and dryers that work, what are some other things you look for in a laundromat?
