Many people consider laundry an exasperating task and thus, rely on others to do the cleaning job for them. Reliance on local launderers for washing and then, ironing clothes is an indirectly important service. However, the local launderers cannot be efficient in handling every cloth type; sometimes, they do make mistakes too which, in turn, cause cloth discolouration, quality deterioration and much more.

Owing to which, the consumer often search for experienced and highly equipped launderers. Even, the report by Statista states, Revenue in the Laundry Care segment amounts to US$1,418m in 2018. The market is expected to grow annually by 10.6% (CAGR 2018-2021). In global comparison, most revenue is generated in China (US$15,855m in 2018). In relation to total population figures, per person revenues of US$1.04 are generated in 2018.

Thus, entrepreneurs and capitalists can invest in the Indian laundry market by starting their own laundry business. Initiating a laundry business is not as easy as it seems, the business requires a lot of things so as to be a successful laundry business.

Essentials Tips on Starting a Laundry Business in India

Being an outsider the entrepreneur-to-be need to learn a lot before getting the laundry business off the ground. To help such entrepreneurs, here are some essentials tips that they should follow.

Laundry businesses are mainly locationoriented, which means the location effects the rise as well as the failure of the business.

Business expansion is often deemed as a costly process, wherein the required funds may exceed the initial laundry services business investment.

Reflecting on this problem, launderers are recommended offering add-on services to customers, which can increase the customer base and in turn increase the profit too. Some of the add-on services that can escalate the laundry business are:

  • Pick-up and delivery services
  • Press and fold services
  • Special services
  • Fast Services

It is less often when the commercial or house laundry business incurs extreme losses as the business receives moderate demand throughout the year. However, there are some exceptions too especially when the services halt owing to downtime. In such a scenario, the loss is inevitable; thus, the launderer should be over-prepared to meet the requirements and should get the equipment mended sooner.

  1. Implement a cost-effective strategy

Managing these costs is essential or else, the expenses would exceed income and thus, running the laundry services business would be problematic. So, launderers should evade such situations by vigilantly administer the business and limiting the use of water as well as energy.
