It was raining money (and rain) in July!

It's been wet in the west.  last month has been one for the record books, raining 28 out of the 31 days in Perth. This is the highest rainfall total for Perth since 1900, and the second wettest July ever recorded in Australia! Not everyone was happy about that, but it was great news for laundromat owners like Midland!



A storm of business

Historically Laundromats perform better during wet weather, so it comes as no surprise that during one of the wettest months ever, business was booming. This July Midland Laundromat made a whopping $43,000 profit. All this while the owner probably didn't even set foot inside (thanks to cashless payment and the impressive remote management tools Speed Queen provides).  Whilst their July profit was truly astounding... that was after an impressive $27,000 profit in June!  To cap it off... this laundromat opened in January 2020... so these results are within their first two years of operating.

Why was Midland so successful? 

Unfortunately, we can't claim credit for the weather, but Speed Queen has helped Midland in every way we can. We helped them validate an appropriate site with demographic and income data, advised on the best machines for their particular location and site, worked with them on installing everything and implemented the full Speed Queen app and Insights technologies for them.  All this while providing general advice from years of experience in the industry.  Nobody knows how to create an amazing laundromat as well as our official distributors.
