Investing in a Wascomat Laundry Business That’s Built to Last

The laundromat business is a recession-resistant industry that has enabled countless investors to build successful multi-store enterprises that can prosper for generations. When Bernie Milch founded Laundrylux in the 1950s with the first of many all-Wascomat laundromats in Manhattan, he couldn’t have dreamed that the family business would still be thriving nearly seven decades later.
