Coin Laundries Pack a Value Punch

Darren Mize, ASA / October 14, 2020

While small and simple, these businesses pack a “value” punch averaging 3.36 x SDE.

Why the high multiples?

  • Recession proof: even in a down economy, people need clean clothes
  • Requires one employee: the owner
  • Minimal management: emptying coin slots and keeping the place clean are the only responsibilities

BOTTOM LINE on VALUE DRIVERS: Keep equipment running efficiently and up to date are the keys to maximizing value.
