Spin Laundry Lounge
We’ve all been at the Laundromat, waiting for the spin cycle to finish, bored out of our minds. Well, Portland resident Morgan Gary experienced that pain throughout her college years and always thought she could make the laundromat a better place to spend some time.
After her MBA in sustainable business she decided to take action, creating Spin Laundry Lounge – an amazing hybrid business that combines an eco-friendly laundromat and wash’n’fold service, with a bar and cafe. It’s a potent mix that offers convenience to customers and a diversified, multi-revenue stream business for Morgan. Now that’s a Small Business, Big Idea.
