Speed Queen Laundry Opens 2nd Chicago Store

Franchisee Banit was eager to expand operation there

RIPON, Wis. — Speed Queen Laundry franchisee Sanjay Banit recently opened a second location in the Chicago area.

At his new store located on North Milwaukee Avenue on Chicago’s Northwest side, Banit kicked off its grand opening in mid-April with a free-wash week. He says he was eager to expand his operation to a second location.

“The ownership experience for a Speed Queen Laundry has been everything the company promised…it’s been absolutely amazing,” Banit says. “We are a part of a positive change in the industry and that’s evident in the positive reactions of our customers since opening the Grand Avenue location. They are appreciative of this clean, safe environment we are providing and, as an owner, that feels good.”

Touchscreen controls, app-based payment and rewards programs for frequent customers are all part of the franchise model’s cutting-edge technology. Washer-extractors and tumble dryers are designed to offer customers exceptional flexibility to tailor cycles, while getting them in and out in an hour. Each store provides a clean, well-lit environment with vibrant colors.

“Sanjay and his staff have represented the Speed Queen Laundry brand in exemplary fashion,” says John Shields, the general manager of North America Speed Queen Laundry franchise and Retail Operations. “The Speed Queen Laundry franchise team looks forward to seeing his continued success.”
