SHOWCASING YOUR LAUNDROMAT
10. Speak with your employees about your plans to sell. Most Buyers keep the existing staff when they buy a Laundromat, so explain this to your attendants and/or cleaning person in a positive light before they hear a rumor or see prospects visiting the Laundromat. An informed attendant who recognizes his or her value to a potential Buyer can be a great ally in the sale process.
13. Lastly, a couple of large new plants and a picture or two on the walls can really make an inexpensive but attractive difference in creating an inviting look for your Laundromat and your prospective buyer.
5. If your store has a children's play area make sure it is as clean as possible including tables, chairs, toys, and rugs.
7. Replace any burnt out florescent lights in the Laundromat as well as any missing, chipped or discolored plastic ceiling light covers. Ensure the outside lights are all working, and that they come on early if set on timers. If your Laundromat has a lighted outdoor sign, it should be in good shape and in working order.
