Thank you! I had the same thoughts myself actually. I would much rather new equipment because just like you said, customers love the bright & shiny new machines.
I guess I shouldn’t hide the fact that I’m a student of Danny D’Angelo. I’m sure you’ve heard of him. In fact, I hired him to negotiate a lease on my behalf. The process has been slow but effective most likely due to the pandemic. We’re finally starting to get through to people, hence the prospective 2 stores I have. I’m putting in all the ground work I need to and then some. Danny’s doing the part I know I could not do on my own and that’s negotiating a lease and twisting that landlord’s arm 🙂
I know that I will end up with a store especially with Danny on my side. When that happens I’d love to be a guest on your show! I have an interesting story to tell on how I began with my laundromat journey.
Thanks again and keep up the good work with the podcast. 🙂
