We reacted quickly to ensure public health was our top priority by implementing safety measures for our employees and customers. Even after cutting off additional revenue streams, our store continued to show positive growth throughout the pandemic, further proving a recession and pandemic-resistant business.

Year-to-date, The Laundry Room (TLR) has seen a 20% increase in washer and dryer revenue despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

90% of 50 laundromat owners surveyed reported a decrease of an average of 27% in revenue during the pandemic.
