What Is Required?
Pressed4Time is a people business, so what is important is YOU and your desire to succeed. The key to your success is your rapport with people and your ability to communicate with them.
The initial franchise fee includes all the training and know-how you need, and it's only $17,500. And, of course, you must have a van which can be leased or purchased. As a Pressed4Time business owner, you work out of your home; all you need is a desk, a computer with Internet access, a laser printer and a telephone.
Service businesses that offer a helping hand to busy consumers are increasing at twice the rate of product oriented businesses. Pressed4Time early on tapped into this lucrative and mature industry, known for its steady, repeat business, and added a new twist for today's personal service market.
In the last two decades, dry cleaning sales have increased over 50%. Each year, over 400 million garments (or 3 billion pounds of clothing) are cleaned at an estimated
$8 billion in sales.
Improved Life Style
Many franchises require a major investment in time before you can reap any rewards. In fact, research shows 82% of franchise owners found they had to work more hours than they anticipated.
A Pressed4Time franchise will provide you with a low-stress, normal 5-Day work week. Combine that with Pressed4Time's excellent income potential, and you'll not only find the money for an enjoyable life, but the time to enjoy it. An important advantage not many businesses offer.
Enjoyment of Work
The convenience of the Pressed4Time service makes your customers' lives better at an affordable cost. They look forward to seeing you which contributes, in turn, to a very pleasant work experience for you. You work beyond the confining environment of an office or facility for the freedom of movement most of us prefer.
Low Start-Up Investment
A Gallup Survey indicated the average total start-up franchise investment is $147,570. In contrast, Pressed4Time's start-up costs are between $19,590 and $28,475. Listed as one of the "Best Franchise Buys under $100,000" weekly in National Business Employment Weekly.
Pressed4Time not only offers modest start up costs it also provides added security typical retail franchises can't bank on. Pressed4Time will provide a proven business model, training and expertise you may need to avoid traditional start-up problems. It's like buying a step up on the learning curve. Established in California in 1987, today Pressed4Time is the largest such service on a national level. Currently, there are more than 150 operations in 32 states and four countries, including the US, Canada, and Australia.
Ease of Delivery
The concept is simple. Twice weekly, at specific times, we pick up and/or delivery dry cleaning, shirts and shoes for repair at office buildings and homes. All dry cleaning is performed by a local dry cleaning plant, similar to plants that perform dry cleaning for many large hotels or small drop-store dry cleaners.
