Speed Queen Opens 1st Franchise Store in South Carolina

Owners celebrated with week of grand-opening activities

RIPON, Wis. — Speed Queen reports its first Speed Queen Laundromat franchise in South Carolina opened earlier this month in Greenville.

The store located at 3505 W. Blue Ridge Dr. offers 2,800 square feet of space, featuring touchscreen controls and washers with capacities ranging from 20 to 80 pounds to make quick work of even the largest of laundry days, along with 45-pound stack tumblers for quick, efficient drying.

Owners opened their doors to the neighborhood with a week of grand-opening activities. Customers were treated to free wash cycles and food trucks. In addition, new customers who downloaded and signed up for the Speed Queen app – which streamlines the experience with app payment, a rewards program, and access to special promotions – saw $5 added to their accounts.

“We are beyond excited to bring this amazing laundromat to the people of Greenville,” says Dan Bowe, general manager of North America Speed Queen Franchise Operations. “Our goal is to take the chore out of doing the laundry and deliver a customer experience like no other in the industry. Across the country, our Speed Queen Laundry franchises are changing peoples’ perceptions of just what a laundromat can be.”

Fast, efficient laundry equipment offers customers flexibility to tailor cycles, while getting them in and out in an hour, all in a clean, colorful, well-lit environment, Speed Queen says.

Families will appreciate the children’s play area, complete with books and iPads to keep kids busy while parents focus on getting laundry cycles completed.

There are more than 20 Speed Queen Laundromat franchise stores in the United States.
