Franchise Benefits

The Benefits of owning a KARL CHEHADE DRY CLEANING franchise store

A proven track record
  • All stores are currently running profitably under our management.
  • KCDC stores are delivered to the Franchisee as a going concern. We take the heartache out of ‘start-up’ associated with any business and offer a viable enterprise prior to your purchase.
  • Immediate cash flow can be achieved at the time of your investment, giving the successful Franchisee a transparent and proven ROI (return on investment).
Strong brand awareness
  • In its markets, KCDC is the most recognised brand and is synonymous with quality of product and service.
New fit-outs
  • Minimal working capital is required for maintenance, as all stores have a brand new fit-out. 
Low overheads
  • As all dry cleaning is performed offsite, the actual occupancy space required is quite small. This allows occupancy costs to remain relatively low.
  • Utility consumption is minimal.
  • Consumables are also low, as the Franchisor includes all coathangers and wrapping in its service.
  • Most stores require only one employee on-site at any time.
Simplicity of operation
  • In order to provide our customers with a high quality and consistent product, KCDC performs all of its cleaning services at the one site. As all cleaning is completed by the Franchisor, the Franchisee can focus on running the store and customer service.
  • All items are freighted to and from the store by the Franchisor.
  • All supplies may be ordered directly from the Franchisor.
  • Reasonable operating hours.
