The Company generates the majority of its revenue from card- and coin-operated laundry rooms located in 43 states and the District of Columbia. Since its founding, Mac-Gray has grown to become the second largest laundry facilities management contractor in the United States. Through its portfolio of card- and coin-operated laundry equipment located in laundry facilities across the country, it provides laundry convenience to residents of multi-unit housing such as apartment buildings, condominiums, colleges and university residence halls, public housing complexes and hotels and motels. The Company's laundry equipment sales business sells and services commercial laundry equipment manufactured by Whirlpool Corporation, Dexter Laundry Company, American Dryer Corporation and Primus Laundry Company. This business sells commercial laundry equipment mainly to retail laundromats, hotels and similar institutional users that operate their own on-premise laundry facilities.
