If this is your earliest days venturing into the startup space, take note of what you may be up against. Now, this is no note of discouragement. Consider it to be something of an encouragement, influenced and inspired by wise words of advice. Such wisdom usually imparts on the realities of running a small to medium sized business. There is never a discouragement to move out of this space but rather a reminder of the kind of responsibilities that are required.
Go online and take your pick then. There are literally hundreds of businesses for you to choose from. On the surface, this amount of choice may seem as though things are being made easier for you, but look a little closer and you will see some harsh realities being exposed. Of the many businesses up for grabs are those that others have had to give up due to not being able to handle its daily pressures and not being able to manage financially.
One of the most challenging small to medium sized businesses to run is that of the downtown or industrial Laundromat. But in saying that, it is also potentially a lucrative business. The potential to do well in this line of work begins with the first checklist. As they say, make sure that you have all your ducks in a row. While sourcing operating equipment that you can afford and runs well, make sure that you have the right contacts to supply you with your regular and most appropriate laundromat parts. And in doing that, make sure that you have qualified technicians who are well equipped to carry out repairs and installations as and when needed.
Because the busier your Laundromat is, the more likely it will be that parts will need to be replaced.
