The entire purpose of this website is to keep you from
getting skinned by unscrupulous people wanting to sell or
build you a drycleaning plant, and it is entirely FREE!
A group of ethical drycleaners got together and decided to help those contemplating entering the business - to know a little more about it before jumping in, and wanted to share some of the information they have learned from either buying a franchise, spending an entire lifetime in the industry or other involvement with the industry.
Know who you are dealing with. You can do this by making sure the franchisor has a physical address and can furnish references. It is good to get a list of cleaners the franchisor claims to have built and installed. Call the businesses at random and talk to the owner asking about the total cost, the quality of the equipment and installation. Also ask if the business has progressed like the seller claims it will. It may not be a bad idea to do a Google search for the individuals involved in selling the franchise. There is a lot of information that Google can furnish and it is all free.
