Values & History

Since 2012 WaveMAX Coin Laundry--based in Jacksonville, FL--has focused its business model on developing the prototypical market and store that can scale and sustain a national chain of coin-only laundromats. Franchise development is being led by Dennis Mulgannon who successfully built Home Care Assistance, Junk King, and The Flying Locksmiths into national franchise brands.

WaveMAX was created to address the lack of high-quality laundromats available today. Many laundromats these days are not staffed, are dirty and run down"…we call them Zombie Mats! WaveMAX strives to provide a clean, exceptionally well-maintained and regularly staffed environment that people can rely on for their laundry needs.

Industry Performance

Laundromats represent an over $5 billion industry in the U.S. Industry growth is based on the demographics of population density, mix and income. The more concentrated the population, the greater the need for quality coin laundry facilities. National and regional demographics indicate renters, the primary users of coin laundries, are the fastest-growing segment in the nation.

As of the 2017 U.S. Census, 34 percent of the nation's 120 million households were renter occupied. The number of coin laundry stores built over the past 70 years has grown steadily as the population has increased and shifted to more concentrated areas. The end result has been a mature, stabilized industry with predictable rates of turnover and values of existing coin laundries, development of new turn-key facilities, and equipment expansion and replacement.

In 2012 WaveMAX joined this strong market and has become an award-winning franchise in the process. In fact, in 2019 we were named to Franchise Dictionary's list of 100 Game Changers in franchising!

Training & Support

WaveMAX offers franchisees initial training including three days at the corporate location and two days onsite at the franchise location. During these days we cover all of the operational and technical aspects of operating the business so that you are set up for success, right from the start.
