Seller is active in the business with 1 FT employee and 2 PT employees. Hours of operation are M-F 7:30a - 6:30p, Sat 9a - 4p. $75,000 in FF&E included in Asking Price.

Google shows eight dry cleaning businesses in the area. A few of them are listed for sale. Many dry cleaning businesses have long time owners who have been happy to carve out their piece of the pie without investing in growth. Many are now retiring, and more will do so in the coming years creating an opportunity for fresh talent, which describes the owners of this business. Because the owners have to sell, a new owner can capitalize on their momentum versus jump starting some other stagnant business. While most Sellers will train, you may prefer to be trained by an owner who has doubled monthly revenue over the past 12 months.
The owners added the route in 2020 during the pandemic including software and a new van. They invested in the store including paint, lighting and conveyor automation. Despite having to exit, they continue to build the business in preparation for the new owner and are excited to share their plans that may yet be fulfilled. Route expansion is a great opportunity to pick up customers left behind by other cleaners exiting or reducing their hours, or to pick up cleaning business for other dry cleaners who want to outsource their cleaning. This is already being done and can grow. While this business has quickly established an excellent reputation online and with neighborhood groups, there is very little advertising or community outreach.
