Yup! There are different types of laundry shop set up. Let us study them to learn how we can take advantage of each type whether you’re the customer or the business owner.
Different Types of Laundry Shop Set Up and its Benefits
One stop shop set up
This is the type of laundry shop set up you need if you are a busy person. Just take your dirty clothes to a laundry shop and they will do all the washing, drying and folding for you.
This kind of shop usually offers pressing and dry cleaning services too. They can make your life even better if they offer a pick-up and delivery service.
Here in the Philippines, this type of set up is the most famous.
Under the one stop shop set up, there are two basic classifications. The traditional or conventional and using coin operated machines.
For laundry business owners, this type has the most backbreaking work and has the most nerve-racking stress. It is the hardest to manage but have relatively low startup cost.
Self service set up
This is the type of set up you need if you have time to do your laundry but do not have the right equipment.
So you go to a nearby self-service laundry shop and use their equipment but you will do all the labor. It’s like renting the equipment.
This set up is commonly found in other countries with highly populated cities where room spaces are insufficient.
Also, there are two basic classifications here. The traditional or conventional and using coin operated machines. The same with the one stop shop set up,
For laundry business owners, this type is the most expensive set up because it is recommended that you have to purchase or lease high-end equipment for costumer’s satisfaction since the customer will be using the equipment hands on.
You know, first impression lasts.
Because of high-end equipment, repairs can be costly too. Another drawback is that you will need more space because people will stay in the shop for a few hours.
Good thing about this set up is you only need one employee to run it.
Pick up station
This is the type of laundry shop set up you need if you have no time, no equipment and no laundry shops nearby. This is also famous in highly populated cities.
You can find them usually in corporate business areas where actual laundry shops are prohibited.
For laundry business owners, this type of set up is the easiest and cheapest way to start or to expand.
No need to buy new equipment if you already have your first branch.
If you’re a startup, smaller rent because you only need small space for cabinets and racks and a receiving area for the reason that you’ll do the washing in your house.
But you must have a strict time management program since you will be transporting the clothes from one place to another.
