Dryclean USA Franchise

Dry cleaning

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.

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.

DRYCLEAN USA 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.
