coffee shop and opened Chin Chien Laundry in mid 2007 in
Chin Chien features all Speed Queen equipment, including: five
toploading washers; three 13.6 kg frontloaders; two 18 kg
frontloaders; two single-load stack dryers; two 13.6 stack
tumblers; and one 20.4 kg stack tumbler. The store is open 24

In the one year she's been in business, Ms Lu has been pleased
with her profits as well as the freedom she has to come and go
during the day. The early success of this store has led her to look
for a location to open a second laundry.

Speed Queen distributor located in Taipei, Taiwan.
