Why set up your own Self Service Laundry?
The service sector is one of the fastest growing and expanding sectors, and within this, the Self Service Laundry business offers excellent profitability while requiring little manpower, as it can be run in automatic mode thanks to domotic applications, both for managing the machinery and for opening, closing and surveillance.
Self-service laundries are a business of the future, as it is a convenient, fast, efficient system with unbeatable results that is increasingly used by a wider and more varied public: immigrants, singles, the elderly, families who do not have domestic help, students, temporary transferees, who in less than 30 minutes obtain the most demanding wash for all their clothes.
Why choose LaColada Clean & Dry?
We were born in 2013 as a service and investment company specialised in giving the best performance to self-service laundries, thanks firstly to our first class machinery in terms of reliability, performance, low consumption, almost no maintenance, and secondly, leaders in advising entrepreneurs, from the search for the best location and carrying out the work, as well as providing all the brand support and technical assistance that our partners need to make their investment a success.
And all this WITHOUT PAYING A FRANCHISE.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR SELF-SERVICE LAUNDRIES
✅ How does a self-service laundry work?
Simple, after checking the labels on the garment, emptying the pockets and putting it in the washing machine, just insert the coins and choose the washing programme.
The detergent and fabric softener are automatically added, then wait for the wash to finish.
🤔 Do you save money by doing your laundry in a self-service laundry?
Analysing the time spent, the cost of washing and the cost of drying, taking as a basis a family of 2 adults and 2 children with a laundry between daily clothes and bed linen and towels of about 45kg, we calculate about 20 hours in time spent and about €25 in electricity, water and cleaning products.
In a self-service laundry with an average of €4 per wash and €2 per dryer the cost is around €16 including detergent and fabric softener.

You can have a laundry shop without having to leave your current job or combine it with other businesses, as you don’t need staff and thanks to our computer applications you can manage it remotely. However, we strongly recommend keeping the premises clean and in good condition.
🎯 What should the ideal premises for a self-service laundry look like?
In our experience we recommend premises of 40 to 60 square metres, with at least 2 washing machines and a tumble dryer. As with any business, if it is located in a medium or large town, it is best if it is easy to get to or even has parking nearby.

For us, the best washing and drying machines are undoubtedly those manufactured by Primus Laundry, with low maintenance and low breakdowns, and with all the reliability that makes them wash clothes with the best results.
