Owners: Karim Bercha and Salim Premji
Store: All Clean Coin Laundry, Spin Cycle Laundry, Holden Laundry and Conway Laundry
Salim Premji started with convenient and liquor stores in Florida, and then set his sights on a new venture- laundry.
After doing some research and speaking with Rusty Parks, Statewide Consultant in Orlando, he realized laundromats are virtually recession-proof and a turn-key business venture. At that time, he and his partner decided it was the right time to add a laundry to their investment.
Salim owns and operates four stores in the Orlando market; All Clean Coin Laundry, Spin Cycle Laundry, Holden Laundry and Conway Laundry. He has been in the business for 15 years and has been a loyal Speed Queen customer since the beginning.
“I love being a multi-store operator. I know that if something happens to one laundry, my other laundry down the street will make up for it," says Salim Premji.
All Clean Laundry is one of the laundries that Salim acquired last year. It’s home of the “Lucky Wash.” Speed Queen® washer extractors with Quantum™ Gold controls have a feature called the Lucky Cycle. The Lucky Cycle offers a free or discounted wash on a machine after a predetermined number of cycles. This has created a buzz for his customers and has proved to be a successful in store marketing campaign.
“The customers always come back hoping today is the lucky day. As an owner, you can program your underutilized machines to "hit" more frequently to reduce the wear and tear on your more popular machines. Not only will the Lucky Cycle feature increase your customer loyalty, but it will increase the lifespan of your equipment," mentions Salim Premji.
When we asked Salim, “What is the key to your success?” He gave us one simple answer, "Hard work. To be a better person in life and to get success you have to work hard, the result of hard work is always rewarding, so you have to work hard."
