Looking to open a Laundromat

Postby DenissH » Fri Dec 15, 2017 8:38 am

Hi,

This is my first post here, and I hope I can find help here.

I want to open a Laundromat, but I need to make some investigations before going into this venture.

In my country, there is just a Laundromat. I think this kind of business can work here, in my city because it's a university town and there are over 10.000 students in the campus.

The big plus is that they are not allowed to have a washer/dryer in their rooms, so they usually go at their parents to wash their clothes. Many wash their clothes just on weekends as they have no options.

My questions now.

    What should be the number of laundry machines I should buy for a start?
    Is this business profitable?
    What will be the costs for repairment of them?
    And last what will be the profit after, let's say 12 months with ten washers?

Thank you,

Deniss

Initially, where are you located? What country and city? That will greatly help in providing you some responses.

In Belgium. Anyway from the time i posted this topic i found an online calculator for a laundromat ( https://laundryowner.com/ ) where i calculated my expenses and it seems like i will join this venture.

Any laundromats owners here to ask them some more advanced questions maybe?
