Selecting the right business to launch a new career doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Although there are many factors to take into account, the most important is finding a business that offers exceptional growth potential and a great likelihood of financial stability. When you’re investing your hard-earned dollars, you want to select a business that offers a high-level of economic stability and is not greatly affected by fluctuations in the economy.
Dry cleaning is a multi-billion dollar industry that has time and again proven to be recession proof. Clothing will always be in need of cleaning. Furthermore, dry cleaning is a cash and carry business which does not require investing funds in extensive inventory.
According to U.S. News & World Report, dry cleaning is one of ten fields that do not sound glamorous, but often make their owners millionaires. Why? Because, “there’s never a shortage of dirty clothes.” Every day millions of consumers take their clothing to a dry cleaner. Thousands of new types of garments are labeled “dry clean only,” which has created an industry estimated to generate $6 to $7 billion a year.
It doesn’t matter what the latest trend in clothing may be, if it’s summer, winter, holiday season, or vacation time. Customers will always have their quality garments cleaned professionally. Even with the proliferation of “casual work days” or “wrinkle free,” a vast majority of these garments still need to be professionally cleaned and pressed.
One Stop Cleaners and the dry cleaning business presents entrepreneurs who have the desire and drive to succeed the opportunity to serve consumers while living the American dream – owning and operating your own business.
