LG Electronics on Wednesday launched its first commercial laundry Reference store in Buruburu, Nairobi introducing the company’s range of commercial washers and dryers in Kenya.
The reference store is designed to provide customers business ideas and insights into LG’s commercial laundry system, a total laundry solution that comes with a complete set-up of LG washer and dryer equipment and end-to-end business support.
Speaking at the launch event, LG’s East Africa Managing Director Sa Nyoung Kim said the laundromat business remains an under-tapped business opportunity in the Kenyan market.
“With this Laundromat store, we seek to empower interested entrepreneurs and investors who are looking to venture into the laundry business market and set-up their own self-service laundry stores,” he said.
“The laundromat business has transformed the livelihood of several communities globally, from the end-users to the investors in Asia and the West,” he added.
The LG Commercial Laundry system provides differentiated values to enterprises and customers that include product reliability, low energy and maintenance costs as well as space-saving features.
The commercial washers provide durability. They come with minimal parts which means customers do not need to worry about repairs.
On the other hand, the LG commercial dryers incorporate a durable heavy-duty motor that results in better drying performance and increased drying capacity.
The stackable design for the washers and dryers allows more customers and more machines in limited space, suitable for businesses of all sizes.
The laundromat will provide new experience bearing in mind hygiene and sanitation needs of the customers.
