The customers consist of a wide range of demographics with middle to upper-class individuals coming from the surrounding densely populated residential neighborhoods. Few competitors are found in the immediate market area, but this business is optimally placed right next to busy intersection, and facade of this business is raised than other tenants within the center which makes visibility superior.

Gross sales of this dry cleaning plant have been consistent for the last several years running at around $230,000-255,000 per year due to its prime location and a solid customer base. Currently, minimal to none marketing is in place, and pro-active marketing is needed to be fully utilized to achieve maximum income potential. There are many ways to increase overall sales by offering pick-up/drop-off services, taking in more household items, reaching out to local school districts for faculty discount, band uniforms, churches, and offering wholesale services to other pick-up stations. Even more various marketing tactics can be utilized, such as online and social media outlet presence, direct marketing, coupons, and weekly deals to acquire new customers in the untapped parts of the area. This business can be more profitable if this plant is converted into a pick-up station by a buyer who already has dry cleaning plant because in result all the labor cost in the production line will drastically reduced. Also, reconsideration of pricing has to be made to generate more profit as current pricing is way lower than the market.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a 23-year well-established full service dry cleaning plant for potential buyer who is willing to be more hands-on in the day to day operation and proactive marketing to reach out to untapped areas of the city.
