WaveMAX Franchise Opportunity on Franchise Interviews
We have a great show today. We are meeting with Dennis Mulgannon, and today we are going to talk about the WaveMAX franchise opportunity,- a high-tech laundromat, optimized with contact-less service, etc.
The industry is made up of Mom and Pop operators who are taken advantage of by the washer and dryer Distributors whose sole purpose is to sell equipment to these non-business savvy operators. The industry has no brand, no business sophistication and massive turnover from operator to operator. Just drive around your city and tour the laundromats in your area. Generally they are not staffed, dirty and run down…we call them Zombie Mats!
WaveMAX® Was Created To Address This Situation!
Since 2012 WaveMAX® Coin Laundry based in Jacksonville FL has focused its business model on developing the prototypical market & store that can scale and sustain a national chain of coin only laundromats. The Franchise Development is being led by Dennis Mulgannon who successfully built Home Care Assistance, Junk King & The Flying Locksmiths into National Franchise Brands.
