2.1 Start-up Summary

This laundromat is a rare business opportunity that not many people can get. Having an excellent proven track record of steady income, the current owner is reluctant to sell. However, in desperation of a large sum of money to pay back loans before his retirement, he is, in a way, forced to sell. Nevertheless, this sale has not been announced or listed to the public yet. Priority is given to acquaintances before being given to the public. Being an acquaintant, Minh has first priority to the business opportunity.

2.2 Financial Picture of Current Laundromat

A few tips from the expert:

  • In the laundromat industry, we should always consider an established venture. 
  • The estimated value of the business should be 50 times the net profit; the investor should regain investment in 3 years or less. 
  • In the laundromat business, size doesn't matter. Only NET PROFIT (income) does.

2.3 Company Locations and Facilities

The laundromat is located in San Jose, California. It will utilize 1,500 square feet. The location is strategically situated on one of the busiest streets in East San Jose. More specifically, it's located in a small attractive shopping center next to the poor to lower-middle class homes; therefore, there is NO possible competitor (after very careful examining). In addition, there are two apartment complexes located nearby. Surrounding it, there is a Mexican neighborhood whose residents get most of their services and needed goods in this plaza where the laundromat is located.
