WaveMAX Laundry Inks 100th Development Agreement

Growing franchise plans to sign another 20-plus by year’s end

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Laundromat franchise WaveMAX Laundry reports it recently reached a major milestone in its aggressive growth strategy, inking the 100th development agreement since launching in 2017. This adds to the franchise’s plans to have over 50 WaveMAX laundry facilities open and operating by 2022.

Recent agreements have been signed to bring the brand to New Orleans and Houston as demand for trusted, quality Laundromats continues to increase in markets across the country. The brand says its strong 2020 performance has primed it to forge ahead into the fourth quarter as the need for cleanliness among consumers and business owners is at a high due to the pandemic.

Building on this momentum, WaveMAX says it has immediate plans to expand into New Mexico and Central Florida before the end of the year.

The newest franchisee, James Allen, signed the milestone 100th agreement to bring a WaveMAX Laundry to New Orleans. With site selection next up, the brand anticipates a grand opening in the second quarter of 2021.

“The first time I stepped foot inside a WaveMAX, I thought to myself, ‘New Orleans needs this,’” explains Allen, who has been a law firm executive director and COO for over 28 years. “The services and experience customers feel in a WaveMAX are unparalleled bar none. This will no doubt be an incredible asset to the community, and I’m looking forward to leading the charge on this development.”

WaveMAX is actively seeking partners to help the brand continue its growth.

“We’ve kept our foot on the gas ever since we started franchising three years ago,” says Mike Roberts, CEO of WaveMAX Laundry. “The innovation and fresh ideas our team brings to this historically stale and seemingly forgotten sector is creating huge demand for our services – WaveMAX is convenient, efficient, clean, and changing how people think about Laundromats.”
