There are more than 30,000 dry cleaners in the United States. For an entrepreneur that wants to get into the industry, expand their business, or start a new business, a dry cleaner for sale is an excellent opportunity. The typical dry cleaner for sale can be very successful on a small scale with a minimal number of employees and close proximity to a customer base. How does an entrepreneur find the right dry cleaner for sale that will be a high performing business? The answer is simple -- focus on green dry cleaning.
First, It Is A Smart Business Decision
California is phasing out the use of the solvent perc, which is a staple in many dry cleaning services and equipment. By 2023, all perc will have to go. When looking for a dry cleaner for sale, the perc issue will eventually come up. Finding a dry cleaner for sale that is already set up to offer services without perc resolves the issue long before the deadline. While some risk is inherent in any business, finding a dry cleaner for sale that has phased out perc already significantly reduces business risk.
The new regulations also prohibit the use of perc machines in any location that shares space with any type of residential area. Take the opportunity to buy a dry cleaner for sale that is already in compliance.
Dry Cleaning Is A Service Business
Customer satisfaction is paramount in the service industry and dry cleaning is no different. Buying a dry cleaner for sale that has switched to green cleaning methods is an excellent way to offer customers value. Customers today are becoming much more environmentally aware; buying a green dry cleaner for sale puts you into a business that already serves that need. These green services create an opportunity to grow a business that you have just bought by focusing and promoting your business's environmentally friendly approach to dry cleaning.
Avoiding Inherited Environmental Issues
Even though perc is being phased out, dry cleaners had been using this substance for years. The use of the solvent is regulated and requires compliance with disposal and contamination. The way leases are structured, any environmental issues found on site typically are the responsibility of the current owner. If you buy a dry cleaner for sale that has already switched away from perc, the chance of inheriting a legacy environmental issue are greatly reduced.
As the market changes, green dry cleaning is going to be in an ideal position to grow. By buying a green dry cleaner for sale today, you're one step closer to putting yourself into that growth position.
