The majority of revenue will come from washers & dryers but are complimented by additional streams including over the counter Wash, Dry, Fold, Vending Machines, ATM, Arcade Games, and POS transactions. This does not include any pickup and delivery revenue from our sister company.
The majority of your stores expenses are going to be coming from Rent, Labor, and Utilities.
