We know laundromats

Richard Jay has helped to establish and upgrade
hundreds of laundromats across Australia –
more than any other company in the country.

50 Years’ Experience In Laundry

Richard Jay launched in 1969 as a single laundromat in Adelaide and since then, we have helped hundreds of Australian families build successful laundries.

We understand what it takes to succeed in the laundry business. With decades of experience, we can guide you on your journey to becoming a successful business owner. We help you identify great locations, design layouts and choose shopfittings that will make your store stand out, future proofing your business against the competition.

We also offer a wide range of laundry solutions, including Australia’s largest inventory of spare parts and market-leading after sales support.

Store design

Laundries have changed significantly over the years. They are now attractive places to spend time, with market-leading store designs and beautiful shop fittings.

We have a host of tools and mentorship programs that help you create a customer-centric store that drives repeat business and referrals.

Many stores now offer:

  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Vending machines
  • Comfortable seating areas
  • Folding tables
  • Laundry tips signage
  • Pet clothes washing.

Payment Solutions

To cater to our diverse customer requirements, we provide three cashless payment solutions:

Nayax Onyx
This innovative device offers tap payment at the point of use, simplifying the user experience. It’s a great choice for investors who want to transition customers away from coin to cashless transactions and minimise ongoing transaction costs.

This Australian-owned company founded in Brisbane, pioneered the mobile payment solution in Australia, offering payment through mobile phone or Kiosk. It’s now available in many markets around the world, making it easier for customers to pay cashless.

Founded in Melbourne, this Australian-owned company pioneered the Kiosk payment solution in Australia, offering a customer-friendly experience and driving down transaction fees. It also offers best-in-segment analytics to help owners understand trends and make data-driven decisions that can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

In addition to these cashless solutions, we also offer traditional, reliable coin payment mechanisms for customers who prefer cash.

Automatic Detergent Dosing

More and more laundry stores are moving away from manually dosed detergents and softeners. This is because manual dosing can be messy, wasteful and time-consuming. Automatic detergent dosing is a cleaner, more efficient solution that can save you money and time in the long run.

Today almost all equipment dispatched is prepared for automatic detergent dosing. Richard Jay imports and distributes Brightwell dispensers, which are some of the most reliable and efficient automatic detergent dosing systems in the world. We also offer a range of detergents and softeners that are specifically designed for use with automatic dosing systems and that are manufactured in Australia.

Wet Cleaning

Wet cleaning is a growing trend in the laundry industry, and for good reason. It’s an environmentally friendly alternative to dry cleaning, and it offers store owners an additional source of revenue by allowing them to process delicate items that would have previously needed specialised dry-cleaning equipment.

Richard Jay is proud to promote Lagoon Advanced Care from Electrolux Professional, a state-of-the-art system that uses water and gentle detergents to clean delicate items without the use of harsh chemicals. It is also the only wet cleaning solution certified by Woolmark, as suitable for the cleaning of delicate wool garments labelled for dry-clean only.

Commercial Laundry Equipment

Richard Jay offers a variety of commercial and industrial washers and dryers, including LG and Electrolux Professional products.

LG’s Commercial Laundry products are designed for 10,000 cycles and a compact footprint, offering the best-in-class innovation in two sizes: 10kg and 15kg capacity.

Electrolux Professional Laundry products are designed for 30,000 cycles and offer the best wash and dry experience, with sizes from 9kg to 33kg.

Our best-selling products include:

Hear from Our Laundromats Clients

I have nothing but good things to say about [Sales Consultant] Kevin South and the Richard Jay staff who have assisted us throughout this whole process. Machines were delivered and installed on time, all the paperwork has been handled with the utmost professionalism. The Tangerpay Kiosk as recommended by Richard Jay is great and all of our customers love being able to swipe a card. We love this new laundromat, and so do our customers. The layout and the new machines as well as the payment system have played an integral part in making the laundromat the success it is becoming.
