Starting Your Recession-Resistant Laundromat Business in 2023

With the economic uncertainty, you might wonder if 2023 is the right year to start a business. When households begin tightening the purse strings, certain industries like retail, hospitality, and travel can suffer. The laundromat industry, however, is a recession-resistant business that provides investors with a very stable income whether the economy is in a boom or bust. So, if you’re looking to start a business that can survive and even thrive during an economic downturn, look no further than a laundromat.

Why open a laundromat in 2023?

The laundromat industry is worth $5 billion in the US and provides an essential service to communities across America. During the pandemic, laundromats were one of the few businesses that remained open, proving that the industry is extremely resilient and will continue to provide store owners with dependable income in 2023 and beyond. Whether the economy is growing or in decline, people always need clean clothes. In fact, laundromats actually tend to prosper in a recession as the trend toward renting over homeownership increases, and people turn to laundromats to take care of their laundry needs.

The laundromat industry can also offer investors:

  • A high ROI of 20-35%
  • An additional source of income alongside another career
  • A high survival rate, with 95% of new laundromats still thriving after the first five years
  • Low labor and operating costs with little to no inventory
