When to upgrade laundry equipment.

Take a deep look at your business. Does it look old? Are you spending more and more time and money in repairs? Are you just not bringing in as much revenue as you once did? If you’re wondering when to upgrade laundry equipment those should be your first clues.

The most important clue though, it’s definitively revenue. Old machines not only increase your bills, they also drive customers away.

Renovating your store will not only save you money in the long run, it can also bring back clients you have lost and even bring in new ones.
