Default Need advice: finding a wholesale drycleaner

Dear board,

I am looking to add dry cleaning dropoff for a laundromat.

What's the best way to find a dry cleaner who would give me good rates and would pick up and deliver clothes from the location?

I did a web search and could not find anything like "wholesale dry cleaning"

This is in Atlanta.

Very easy --- Just walk in to a few Dry Cleaners and ask....

The way I did it i I asked for a 60/40 laundromat gets the 40.

Always try to get two Dry Cleaners it alway good to have back ups.

Negotiate -- I found out that Dry Cleaners did not do the pick ups...

Be creative think out of the box.

Not a tough question ... Very easy.. Did you KNOW that over half of the dry cleaning is really WASHED!!!

Thank you!

"Always try to get two Dry Cleaners it alway good to have back ups." --- great idea

"Negotiate -- I found out that Dry Cleaners did not do the pick ups..." --- would I need to bring it to them? Someone told me they can come and pick up and drop off at my location, or would I need to take things to them?


"Did you KNOW that over half of the dry cleaning is really WASHED!!!" -- that's messed up!! How can I check?? I'd hate to have my customers clothes messed up. This happened to me once before, and my custom tailored pants were ruined.

I just feel weird asking random cleaners for the wholesale prices. I guess something to get used to.

Men's shirts are laundered and pressed unless the shirt is silk or the customer requests DC. Pants like dockers are usually washed. Polo (pull over type shirts) are usually washed. Again unless silk or customer requests DC.
