Slide 1: ==== ==== Secrets Of Buying And Owning Laundromats. http://lnk.co/IOBCF ==== ==== First, who needs and who uses a Laundromat? The answer is lots of people, the problem is that they already have a place to wash their clothes. You don't keep your clothes pilled up until you find "just the right place" to wash them... neither does anyone else. So, If you are going to buy a Laundromat or build one, there are a few things you need to sort out before hand. The big one, how are you going to get your customers through the door to your business and leave the one they are already going to. For starters, you will need to be more convenient for them. Having newer and better equipment, a nicer atmosphere and environment as well as a very clean store will the best ways to attract your customers. If you are looking to buy an existing Laundromat business, you should be looking at all these amenities, as well as looking for the ones that are missing that you can add later. Running a well equipped Laundromat will draw customers on its own because it will provide a better environment for them to stay, socialize and get their laundry done. For many people, time is important, most people don't have enough. So, one of the biggest draw will be larger capacity machines that complete the wash and dry cycles in faster times. This will be a larger investment up front, but will be able to drive a higher turn around rate for your customers. This will allow you to serve more customers, bringing in more revenue. Finding the right location is always a huge factor too. Everyone always says, location, location, location. However, most people don't consider that the local corner store is not convenient anymore. The average person now drive's everywhere they want to go, so your customer traffic is now coming from further. They travel further to your store because of the atmosphere usually. So, it's development is key to your survival. So, the location is not always as important as having a convenient location... I mean convenient as being easy access from major roads and tucked away in a strip mall that is difficult to get to by car. You must research your location. If you have a concentration of apartments, visit them. Find out what their laundry rooms are like. Most apartments I have visited usually have inadequate machines, old, and often out of order. If you find many apartment buildings in this kind of shape, you are in a prime location to receive lots of local business. Watch for inner city or low income area locations. Typically you will need a more secure atmosphere, to entice the local families to use your services and not feel threatened in any way. The trend changes in higher income areas, where full service facilities do well, such as a wash, dry and fold service.
Slide 2: Dry-cleaning drop off location and fabric repair and care services do very well in these areas too. If you do not supply the server, be the broker and arrange it for your location to be the drop off and pick location for them. There are many other factors you will need to consider about finding the right location to buy your Laundromat, or build your own Laundromat. This article is not written to address them all. The right location will make or break the business, it must be chosen wisely and carefully. Other considerations in buying a Laundromat is the actual equipment. I touched on it briefly above, but I think it requires a little more detail. You have to remember that having the best or better washing, drying and other machines in your store will bring customers in. People in general love to use the best and newest stuff. Keeping your equipment in clean and prime working order will be one of the biggest jobs. Many people that use a Laundromat do have their own washers and dryers at home, but are usually low grade and don't do a great job. Having superior equipment will attract those customers and keep them, especially if your machines can remove dirt and stains that they believe have been set in for years. Investing in long life, heavy duty washing equipment will also benefit your business goals. Front load wash and dry machines only, no top load. Front load, high quality Laundromat machines will save you about %50 on your utility costs compared to the top variations. There are many laundry equipment supply companies around, find one that has local service center and a good service and warranty plan. There is no need for you to be fixing machines when you can have it done under warranty and by an experienced technician. You are better to spend your time taking care of your customers, the business and store itself. I think that covers some of the basics for buying and owning your own Laundromat. Thanks for your time.
