Required documents

For a start you have to register your company with the taxing authority (in most cases it will be a PE).



Your next step will be to check out sanitary-epidemiological service requirements to a laundry business.

?????????

Services like the fire department, work safety services, electricity providers, water supply, gas emergency service and architects also have their requirements to a laundry business. You’ll have to get all the permissions.

Location of your business

You should open your full service laundry room closer to hotels, entertainment centers, kindergartens. Large residential areas would be another good place. Here you can place both universal laundries and launderettes.

Mini-laundry rooms should be opened in the proximity of student hostels as students will become your permanent clientele.

Purchase of equipment

The most essential thing is to buy washing machines.

You can buy used machines to save some money.

The required amount of washing powder:

  • for a day (8 hours) – 7 kg;
  • for a week (5 working days) – 35 kg;
  • for a month (4 working weeks) – 140 kg.

However, just washing powder is not enough for a quality service. Modern clothes washing involves the use of bleach, rinser, flavors, enhancers, softeners, etc. These costs will be plentifully repaid to you – as you will be able to offer a better service.

Besides that, you will need professional care products for your washing machines and other equipment. The optimal solution will be to find suppliers of household chemicals and make a deal with them – this way you will be able to save a lot on the purchase and transportation of goods.

Additional services

To cover the initial costs and increase your income, you can expand the range of the services. For instance, you can offer dry cleaning, taking large amounts of laundry for cleaning / washing / ironing, as well as packaging, transportation and delivery.

Staff

The number of staff depends on the range of laundry services.

2-6 employees will be involved exclusively in the washing process. In addition, you will need some people for reception and delivery of clothes. You will also need one employee for ironing as well as a gasman, an electrician, an accountant and a specialist in technical equipment (the last 4 should be outsourced employees) .

Self-service laundry requires fewer employers.

Profitability

A private laundry is a profitable business. In order to start you only need to make a correct business plan, order effective advertising campaign, organize troubleproof operation, ensure high quality of your service and find your customers.

On average, you will need about $3000-5000 to open a small facility while your income could be $1500-2000 a month in the near future.
