Arthur Lapon is the Founder and President of ADL Consulting Services, Inc. – The business resource center for the Commercial Coin and Card Laundry Industry.
A graduate of Boston University, as well as Boston University’s Executive Management Program, Arthur has been in corporate business and manufacturing management in the Space, Defense, and Computer Industries.
Arthur has personally been involved in both owning and operating a restaurant, marketing company, real estate business, as well as coin laundries.
In the past 20 years, Arthur has been instrumental in the Design, Construction, Remodeling, Sale and Purchase of hundreds of Coin Laundry and Card Laundry Stores. “Through these years we have developed a great resource of Consultants, Contractors, Architects, and Distributors that provide proven expertise in all phases of our Client’s needs, with the objective of assisting them along the path of acquiring and operating a successful Laundromat business.”
Arthur has been instrumental in changing the commercial laundry industry from the old style, small, and limited service neighborhood Laundromat to what is now a long and very successful series of small, medium, large as well as 10,000 square foot mega-laundries that offer to its customers a menu of services, including Self-Service, Drop-Off Laundry, Drop-Off Dry Cleaning, Commercial Laundry Services, a full complement of retail sales of washing products, as well as food, snacks, drinks, internet-café, video games, free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, multiple large screen televisions, music, as well as experienced, friendly and helpful employees who not only take care of customer’s needs and questions but who also keep the stores clean and organized.
With the widespread availability of high-speed broadband internet service, Arthur has been able to offer his clients the opportunity to own and operate the Cashless, Card Laundry store that utilizes both Debit and Credit Cards that can operate all of the store’s Washers and Dryers. Card laundries also offer the owner the advantage of having all the store’s goods and services purchased with debit or credit cards which minimizes the opportunity for lost income.
“As in any business undertaking, it has taken us years of time and effort to develop a well thought out formula to help our customers in every facet of the Commercial Laundry Industry. “The most rewarding aspect of what we do is that over the years we have been able to help so many people reach their personal and financial goals. We treat every one of our Clients as important individuals who are given all the time, guidance and understanding needed to fulfill their specific needs with the results they are looking for, from start to finish. Our satisfaction comes from hearing and knowing that we have made a positive impact on our client’s life. If you are serious about going into the Laundry business, or improving the Laundry business you currently own, or maybe moving into a larger Laundry facility, a great place to start is by giving us a call or sending an email and I will personally start you on the way to a rewarding business experience.”
