1.  Locations for Sale

Posted 10 days ago
Can anyone advise on where to look for listings of currently established laundromats for sale?  I'm looking for a laundromat in New York City.  (Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan or Staten Island).  Most internet searches only lead to services where the listings are at a cost and you don't know if they are actually real.

Have you tried BizBuySell?

Thanks Richard, Yes, I have looked at BizzBuySell but their ads do not give much info and I tried to contact the listed broker to either get a phone number that wasn't for the broker/owner or a bounced back e-mail.  I wonder if there are any legitimate sector publications that list laundromats?

Sometimes you just have to drive around and talk to owners.  Some may be thinking about selling, but have not started the process.  Sometimes you will find a store that doesn't even show up on the web.  Those are the ones that are usually on their last leg and ready for a rehab.

I agree 100% with Chris....Just walk into the mats you like and leave your name & number.

I found 3 mats that way.  To clarify though, I was looking to buy run down dumps cheap, and fix them up.....Many times a run down mat will be for sale. A successful mat in good shape may be harder to locate a seller who is willing to sell.
