Owned by former US Marine, Saba Safiari and his uncle Robert Rafiaboth were eager to provide the community with a truly exceptional customer experience that local laundromats failed to do.
“The hard-working people of Long Beach deserve better, and we know this laundry will provide them with an upscale experience,” Safiari said.
Rafia echoed her nephew’s thoughts and saw the Speed Queen Laundry franchise as a way to leverage the technology, branding and knowledge of a global leader to meet a market need. … and act quickly. “I don’t wait for things to happen,” he joked of working with the Speed Queen team to push the project forward at lightning speed.
Safiari and Rafia are delighted to open their doors to the neighborhood with a week of inauguration activities April 6-13. Customers will be entitled to free wash cycles in state-of-the-art touchscreen-controlled equipment. Additionally, customers who download and sign up for the Speed Queen app – which streamlines the experience with in-app payment and a rewards program – will receive $5 added to their account.
Fast, efficient washer-extractors and dryers give customers exceptional flexibility to customize cycles, while getting them in and out in an hour, all in a clean, well-lit environment with vibrant colors. Families will appreciate the children’s play area, with books and iPads to keep kids busy while parents focus on completing laundry cycles. The owners are also excited about the park next to the laundromat, which they see as an extension of their family-friendly amenities. The laundry will also offer a wash-dry-fold service for time-constrained customers.
