(FRANCHISE EXPO PARIS, 22-25 March 2015 -
Pavilion 3, Stand 52) The world's biggest commercial laundry
business - Alliance Laundry Systems - will be at Franchise Expo
2015 from 23rd to 25th March 2015 to promote
a new franchise investment opportunity for French entrepreneurs to
create their own self-service laundry business under the global
'Speed Queen' brand.
Speed Queen is America's largest commercial laundry brand, with
an established reputation for reliability in thousands of existing
self-service laundry businesses around the world. It is now
harnessing both its technology and experience to deliver a proven
investment opportunity in selected countries throughout Europe.
And it is already showing that is a proven business performer
for investors who want to be their own boss, with a network of
stores appearing across Europe in Spain, Germany, Poland, Portugal,
the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Lithuania and Austria. Three
new Speed Queen branded stores have recently opened in France in
Paris, Nimes and Caen.
A self-service laundry presents a very different opportunity
from 'traditional' franchise investments that focus on fast food or
retail: it does not involve the management of perishable goods or
onerous stock issues, and because the operation is 'self-service'
the number of staff required is minimal, which also reduces the
amount of time an owner needs to spend on the business.
The amount of specialist knowledge required is also minimal,
beyond having the skill to recognise an investment opportunity that
delivers steady and predictable returns, and that is effectively
'recession proof' since demand is ongoing. Unlike other comparable
investment opportunities, there are no ongoing royalties or
commissions to be paid.
Rocco Di Bari, Director, International Sales Europe for Alliance
Laundry Systems, is excited about the future: "Our ambition is to
build a network of more than 1,500 new stores across Europe,
working with investors who want a proven business model that allows
them to become their own boss."
A Speed Queen branded store will suit somebody looking for a
business opportunity that presents strong returns and a stable
cashflow but that requires limited investment in time. It may be
ideal for those looking for a full-time investment opportunity,
especially someone who might be looking for a career change and
those with a cash sum to invest, or someone considering retirement
that wants to supplement their income.
