20+ years established prime location full-service dry cleaning pick-up station in Northwest Dallas is available for acquisition. This business was acquired by the current owner in 2001 and has been established many years before the acquisition. This business had been operating as a full plant for the last 15 years and converted to a pick-up station in 2018. This business is in a 975 SF space of retail strip center is located next to an intersection with heavy traffic and is surrounded by luxury apartments, upper-class gated community neighborhoods, hotels, and many corporate offices. The overall sales have decreased quite a bit after one of the nearby corporate offices has relocated approximately 5 years ago due to its parking garage collapsing unexpectedly. Current monthly sales are $7,000/month and have been consistent last few years without any marketing whatsoever and solid repeat and regular customers. The majority of the customers are upper-income individuals with a lot of disposable income from a very affluent gated community residential neighborhood, high-end apartments, and corporate offices. Due to the owner's age, they have not been proactive in marketing at all and there is no marketing or advertising in place whatsoever other than regular customers that have been coming for years and years. All marketing tactics need to be utilized to further grow the overall sales including all online and social media outlets, direct mailing with flyers and coupons, offering pick up and drop off service, and reaching out to many corporate offices and medical offices wash and fold. Also, the current owners using an outdated cash register and by upgrading to POS will allow the business to enhance customer service and keep track of all customers. This is a great opportunity for a buyer who already owns a plant to expand their business into this prime location with low rent and a lot of potential by implementing more proactive marketing efforts.
