The Founder:Arthur Lapon

Arthur Lapon is the Founder and President of ADL Consulting Services, Inc. – The business resource center for the Commercial Coin/Card/and Smartphone operated Laundry Industry.

A graduate of Boston University, and Boston University’s Executive Management Program, Arthur has been in corporate business and manufacturing management in the Space, Defense, and Computer Industries for many years until finally deciding to take all of his acquired knowledge and skills and reinventing himself into a more entrepreneurial path to change what was a very old and poorly designed laundromat (coin laundry) industry and turning it into something new and exciting that people of all walks of life would use and enjoy.

Arthur has personally been involved in both owning and operating multiple Laundromats, as well as a marketing company and commercial real estate business. For the past 25 years, Arthur and ADL Consulting Services has been instrumental in the Design, Construction, Remodeling, Sale and Purchase of many hundreds of Coin, Card and Smartphone operated Laundry businesses. “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 successful Laundromat businesses.”


Arthur and ADL Consulting have 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 hundreds of small, medium, and large laundromats (including a 10,000 square foot mega-laundry) that offers to our customers a menu of services, including Self-Service, Drop-Off Laundry, Drop-Off Dry Cleaning, Commercial Laundry Services, a full complement of retail sales opportunities as well as very comfortable seating, multiple large screen tv’s, music and everything necessary to make the customer experience friendly, inviting, and more of a pleasant weekly destination.

As the commercial laundry industry has continued to innovate using new and more efficient technologies, we have been able to offer our clients the ability to provide self-service and drop -off services that utilize both smartphone and or smartcard technology that makes the laundromat experience for both owner and customer an easier and faster process.


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.
