Store Owners in Category Getting Started
Do you currently own a coin or card-operated laundry? Are you looking at business opportunities and thinking about opening a laundromat? Whether you’re new to the commercial laundry business or a seasoned pro, we’re glad you found us, and we’re ready to help. As a laundromat owner, choosing a distributor, purchasing commercial laundry equipment and obtaining financing are all important business decisions. Here are just a few ways Dexter and your local authorized Dexter distributor can help you succeed in the commercial laundry industry:
Durability and Reliability
Lasting quality means you’re “investing” in versus “spending on” commercial laundry equipment. All Dexter Laundry equipment is built using heavy-duty, over-sized, commercial-rated components. Our machines are designed to run efficiently and continuously, 24 hours per day. Cycle after cycle, year after year, Dexter commercial washers and dryers show up for work ready to face the tough elements of a coin or card-operated laundry.
Our laundry equipment engineers use, abuse and try to destroy a mechanical design before ever calling it a Dexter. We assume the very worst laundromat operating conditions and engineer our commercial laundry equipment accordingly.
For example, every Dexter commercial washer has to pass a 1,000 hour out-of-balance durability test. For this test, we take half the rated machine capacity, place it in one section of the cylinder and run the washer at its highest spin speed for 42 days, non-stop. No component can fail. Every washer design that Dexter sells has passed this test. You can rest easy knowing your new Dexter machines can handle even the most careless laundromat customers for many years to come.
Performance and Utility Efficiency
Greater energy efficiency equals better profit margin on every cycle. We continuously improve the performance of our products because the most successful laundry owners demand profitable results. Our commercial washers spin faster to extract more water from every load — conserving your drying energy. We made variable frequency drives standard on our washers because they can save you up to 60 percent on electricity. Our dryers feature heat reclamation to improve drying efficiency. The list of performance features goes on and on. The bottom line: Better performing commercial laundry equipment saves time, money and resources. Less waste equals more profit for you, the laundromat owner.
Simplified Laundry Equipment Installation and Competitive Financing
We are continuously trying to make Dexter Laundry equipment easier to purchase, less expensive to install, more economical to operate and more profitable to own.
To save you installation time and money, we have engineered washers that operate on single or three-phase power, require smaller electrical circuits and draw fewer AMPs. These features alone can save you thousands on expensive utility upgrades from your local electric company. For your customer’s safety and convenience, we have made emergency stop buttons standard on every Dexter commercial washer.
Our popular commercial stack dryers require a single gas connection and a single electrical connection and even include a ventilation connection to simplify your duct work.
If you choose to go with a card-operated laundry instead of coin-operated, we have integrated our Easy Card™ payment system into every machine to save you installation and setup time.
Through Dexter Financial Services, your Dexter authorized distributor can offer you flexible financing solutions at competitive rates. You can choose between a loan or a lease and between a fixed or variable interest rate program. At Dexter, we understand the laundromat business, and the financing programs offered by Dexter Financial Services have allowed many owners the opportunity to not only expand their current laundromat, but also the ability to grow their business by adding additional stores.
