Investing In Laundromats

Some investors are compelled by entrepreneurial drive, while others are looking to generate a passive income. Many laundromat owners yearned for independence—an escape from the discouragement of the humdrum corporate world. While owning your own business can be a challenge, the world of coin-operated laundry has a long track record of profitability and positive cash flow.

Start With A Plan

It’s time to build spreadsheets, create pro-forma financial statements, and put your plan to paper. As you document potential sites for your laundromat, project your volumes and recognize your costs, you’ll see how your dream can become a reality. You will also recognize potential challenges so you can plan to overcome them.
