The Dry Cleaning industry is a $9 Billion industry and are comprised of dry cleaning and full-service laundry establishments that cater to household consumers and commercial clients such as hotels, professionals, families and restaurants. Competition is light in the area. There are no other "full-service" cleaners with a cleaning plant on site, that can offer "same-day" service in this upscale neighborhood.

Reason for selling:

The semi-absentee owner has resumed a rewarding career in education and is no longer able to devote the time and energy to this business. And would prefer to have a conscientious buyer take it to the next level.

Support & Training:

Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost This is a "full service" dry cleaning and laundry business. There are no required license but a buyer new to the industry would need light training. They use a pre-cleaning process which involves the scrubbing of collars, cuffs, stain spots, and other commonly-soiled areas. Additionally they offer cleaning on fine leather items and handle household items including comforters, table cloths, sleeping bags and rugs. Aside from cleaning they offer alterations, preservation of wedding dresses.
