How to Start a $24K/Month Laundromat Business (2024)

Did you know the average laundromat makes over $238K, and up to half of that can go to the laundromat owners?

The laundromat industry in the U.S. is worth $5BN, with over 21,000 businesses in operation that employ over 50,000 people.

Do I have your attention? If I do, get ready to learn how to start a laundromat!

We have interviewed the owners of four different laundromat businesses, including Dave Menz, the CEO of Queen City Laundry, who owns four laundromats and makes over $1.8 million annually.

Dave will share his wisdom on finding a laundromat, getting financing, how to value the business, and how to negotiate a deal. We pull in insights from other successful laundromat owners, too. Get ready to learn how to start a laundromat.

Case Study: Queen City Laundry

Dave Menz got into the laundry business in 2010. He told us:

I grew up in poverty and people looking down at me. I fought out of poverty to middle class and then financial independence. I could do nothing if I wanted to, but I prefer to teach people to reach that same level.

He bought his first laundromat and worked at it on nights and weekends. He bought two more before he made enough that he could quit his job and still live a comparable life. Dave told us:

I don’t love doing laundry, but I love the industry. I love the people, the impact on my community, and the opportunities it provides.

The laundromat industry is not for everyone, but for many it can be a phenomenal business. I see the antiquated nature of the industry as a positive because it makes it easy for you to stand out compared to a coin laundry business.

His primary services are:

  • Self-serve laundry
  • Drop-off wash and fold
  • Dry cleaning
  • Pickup and delivery laundry
  • Commercial laundry services

Since starting, Dave has bought four more laundromats. When he buys laundromats, he looks for locations he can fix up that offer services he can improve on to make them more appealing to local clients.

Dave maintains one company that owns the land his laundromats are on. This separate company rents the land to his laundromats, effectively making him his own landlord. This unique strategy has built him a $3.8 million net worth and makes him over $1.8 million in revenue per year. Find out how below:

He’s currently working on upgrading from coin machines to accepting cards and PhonePay in addition to the other services he offers.

Learn About the Laundry Industry

Have you ever found yourself wondering how much money a laundromat makes? Or Is the average laundromat cost something I can afford?

Dave told us:

Laundromats are a vital community resource. That’s really why I fell in love with the business.

Established organizations provide the information you need. Keep reading to find places that conduct market research and provide market analysis.

Check out the free industry overview by the Coin Laundry Association (CLA). Also, download their most recent Laundry Industry Survey and Laundry Customer Profile, which presents the results of over 400 customer surveys.

For commercial laundry, the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) offers benchmarking reports. Don’t overlook the National Apartment Association (NAA), which provides insight into the industry’s multi-housing segment.

How much do laundromats make?

When you open a laundromat, you should assume that it will make around $300K in revenue annually. You can add additional sources of revenue by adding vending machines, laundry delivery, and other services.

Dave told us:

Almost everything is paid upfront before services are provided. This makes running the business easier because you don’t have to chase customers for payment.

Businesses focus on [repairs] and collecting the money from a coin laundry machine. You can reimagine this to save you time, money, and help your customers better.

The laundromat business is not passive income, but semi-passive or flexible.

Of course, emergencies are bound to occur if all you do is fix things when they’re broken. Take proactive steps to keep your laundromat running smoothly, and you’ll find yourself on the road to laundromat success.

One of Dave’s recommendations: Add an annual sewage drain flush to your maintenance routine to reduce breakdowns.

He does that for all his laundromats, and listen to what happened:

We were looking for a consolidation loan and were putting all the financials together, and I realized I am a millionaire.

Are laundromats profitable?

According to Cents, the average U.S. laundromat profitability is 20 to 30% on approximately $300K in revenue assuming they are not using leverage. According to Dave, top-performing laundromats can operate with 50% margins or higher. That’s two to eight times higher than the average real estate investment, which is 7 to 10%.

A laundromat’s ROI changes depending on:

  • Age of Machines: As washers and dryers age, maintenance costs increase.
  • Business Expenses: Rent, water, gas, electric, and inventory can easily add up to $10K per month.
  • Competition: The less competition you have, the more your new laundromat can charge. Adding full-service makes it so you can charge more.
  • Location: Like home mortgages, a new laundromat will cost more to operate in places with higher property values.
  • Pricing: While a coin laundromat might charge between $1.50 and $4 a wash, you can charge by the pound when people pay for full-service washing and drying.
  • Services Offered: Providing services like full-service washing, drying, and delivery can increase revenue and reduce the employee costs as a percentage.
  • Employees’ Pay: Even at minimum wage, payroll is the largest expense for most laundromat owners.
  • Local Taxes: Local and state sales taxes can be up to 13%.

Ancillary services like dry cleaning, pickup and delivery, sneaker cleaning, wash and fold, and other luxury services can increase your profitability.

How much does a laundromat cost?

Entrepreneurs normally spend between $100,000 and $1,000,000 to start a new laundromat or buy a laundry business for sale.

Dave suggests that you should normally spend between two and five times revenue, but that you should base your business valuation on what it’s worth to you.

The startup costs to open a laundromat depend on:

  • Size: Small laundromats will normally cost less than $300K, while larger laundry facilities will cost $500K or more.
  • Equipment: The number of machines, capacity, and age will impact the price of a laundromat.
  • Services: The startup costs will vary depending on whether you offer other services. An old store with no customers is worth less than one with a great customer base.
  • Location: Every city has different property costs.
  • Buy vs. Build: Buying an existing laundromat will normally have less startup costs than building a new laundry business. You’ll also earn revenue faster, which should reduce the overall startup costs.
  • Future Operational Costs: You should include a budget of approximately $15K monthly for future operating expenses, loan payments, rent, and maintenance.

Where is the best place to put a laundry business?

The best location for a laundry business will have the following characteristics:

  • Population Density: Laundromats do best in areas where there are at least 20K to 35K people in a one-mile radius.
  • Low-Income Neighborhoods: Locations near apartments, colleges, low-income housing, and trailer parks tend to do better because low-income families often need to use a coin-operated business.
  • Accessibility: You’ll want a location that is easily accessible by car, bus, or foot. Signage should be easily viewable and parking abundant.
  • Low Competition: Lots of competition means lower profit margins and potential price wars.
  • Good Neighbors: Businesses like auto part stores, cash checking, convenience stores, and grocery stores are good neighbors for laundromats because they provide lots of traffic that might need your services.

How to Start a Laundromat

Starting a laundromat means you’ll need to

  1. Choose a business model.
  2. Write a business plan.
  3. Build relationships with distributors.
  4. Get financing.
  5. Find a location.
  6. Get permits and insurance.
  7. Set up your business.
  8. Develop a marketing strategy.

Step 1: Choose a business model

First, you’ll need to pick a laundry business type, which means selecting your services, business structure, and business model.

Consider the different kinds of laundromat businesses:

  • Coin laundry
  • Private laundromat equipment for multi-tenant buildings
  • Wash-and-fold service
  • Commercial laundry for uniforms, linens, and facilities
  • Pickup and delivery

Learn about each type of laundry service below.

Self-service coin laundry business

When you want to start a laundry business, you’ll find most business entities offer coin-operated machines that people operate themselves. A business venture that focuses on this strategy is normally going to have the lowest profit margin of companies that clean clothes.

That said, at Ferndale Laundry, the most revenue comes from self-serve machines. Owner Justin says:

There’s little to no maintenance or cost to me because they’re doing all the work.

Check out our interview with Justin below.

Dry cleaning business

A dry cleaning business uses completely different laundry machines than standard washers and dryers. Dry cleaners normally charge by the garment. Common dry cleaning prices range from:

Shirts: $2.99 to $8
Pants: $6 to $11.99
Sweaters: $7.50 to $12.99
Dresses: $13.25 to $19.99
Suits: $14.99 to $25.95
Coats: $15 to $25.99
Comforters: $18.99 to $42.99

Wash and fold service

Owning a laundromat that offers wash and fold services can be highly beneficial. It improves your customer experience because they can drop off their clothes on the way to work and pick them up on the way home.

Laundromat prices will normally be based on the pound. That means you make more money per wash and protect your machines by not overloading them, which saves your business entity from increased maintenance costs.

Commercial laundry facility

A commercial laundry facility provides uniforms and other items to service companies and hotels, picks up dirty uniforms and sheets, and washes them. This is highly profitable because you make money from both the rental of clothing and the cleaning.

Check out Cintas’s website for an example of commercial laundry and uniform company offerings.

Laundromat service for apartment complexes

Whether you choose to operate a coin laundry business or laundromat equipment rental business, you can make money by supplying quality equipment to apartment complexes. Check out information about multi-unit housing on NAA’s website.

Delivery service

Rosie Wash Express Laundry uses an app to manage its home delivery business, allowing customers to enter details and pay online. Delivery drivers receive GPS information to complete their routes.

Pro Tip: Get more information about owning a pickup-and-delivery business here.

Choose a business structure

In addition to deciding what kind of laundry services you’ll offer, you need to create a business entity for your laundromat. This requires selecting a business name that is available as a website domain, trademark, and social media handle.

The two most common ways to create a business entity are a limited liability company (LLC) or a corporation. There are other types of business entities you might want to consider, but most involve potential liability you don’t want to assume.

Both LLCs and corporations limit your potential losses to the initial investment as long as you don’t sign anything guaranteeing personal liability. You can also run both on your own or with business partners.

Dave uses numerous business structures to manage his business, including LLCs and land-rent agreements between his company that owns the land and his companies that own the laundromat.

Pro Tip: Learn how to register your business and how to get an employer identification number (EIN) from the IRS.

Step 2: Write a business plan

This plan should outline your strengths, competitors, goals, and workflow. A good plan can help you attract investors or earn grants.

Iron out your vision, objectives, and strategy into a laundromat business plan that will help you accomplish essentials like securing financing or partnering with other businesses. It’s totally worth your time.

Pro Tip: If you want some extra guidance on how to write a business plan that will appeal to investors, consider working with a company like Wise Business Plans, whose team of MBA-trained writers have experience writing business plans that successfully secure funding from banks and other lenders.

Step 3: Build relationships with distributors

Dave told us that relationships with his distributors contribute to nearly 50% of his success. Some of the most common types of distributors are:

  • Fly-by-Night Distributors: Laundromat owners who are doing it because their own distributor was bad. They may work from home and play middleman. They only work with small groups of manufacturers and normally deal with bad customers.
  • Plain Janes: They are more established but they just do the bare minimum. They are typically very nice but don’t add much value to the industry.
  • Rock Star Distributors: These professionals get you access to an extensive infrastructure and are well-established with a major building and service department. They normally have company vehicles that are branded and fully stocked. You’ll also have access to a full parts department with technicians who can predict problems based on your description of the issue you’re facing. They will train you as a laundry business owner and work with manufacturer reps. Plus, they’ll have a professional installation department.

But how do you find the best distributors? Do a Google search, contact manufacturers, or network with people. After you’ve found a prospective distributor, you’ll want to talk to them on the phone then visit their location.

Step 4: Get financing

You’ll need money to cover leasing or buying a space, hiring employees, and buying equipment. Getting into the laundromat business isn’t cheap. You’ll want to estimate how much you need to start and operate the business, which you can learn how to do through Udemy.

Once you’ve established how much money you’ll need, you have to find a way to get the money. Some common funding options include:

  • Self Financing: If you have a cool $1M lying around, you can open a laundrymat with your own money. Most people don’t have that much, though.
  • Equipment Loan: You can secure an equipment loan with the equipment when you start or buy a laundromat. Learn more in our blog about business loans.
  • Rollover Business Startup: Create a corporation and a 401K, then sell your shares of the corporation to your 401K. Use the proceeds for buying a laundromat or starting a laundromat business.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) offers free courses on financing options and funding programs. Consider alternative sources of funding, like crowdfunding or even a home equity loan.

Many small business owners finance their investment at least partially through a business loan. You can inquire about financing options with your business banker, or compare options from multiple lenders on National Business Capital.

You can find a range of financing options on their site, including term loans with flexible financing and business lines of credit. Many of these have no credit score requirement, either, so you can access funds for your business regardless of your personal financial situation.

Pro Tip: Want to know how to open a laundromat with no money? Check out our blog about seller financing to find out how.

Step 5: Find a location

Google Maps location search on a smartphone

Fact: 87% of laundromat customers live within one mile of their preferred location.

Taking the time to find an ideal location is the best investment of your time as a future laundromat owner.

Consider a location near any of the following:

  • Apartment buildings
  • College students
  • Tourist areas
  • Hotels and motels
  • Large family housing developments

Dave offers some suggestions on how to find a business location in your local market, including:

  • Check business listings.
  • Network, talk to distributors, and use business brokers.
  • Compile a list of attractive locations.
  • Visit the locations.
  • Value the business.

Self-serve laundromats are normally in small towns or outskirts of suburban areas, under 5,000 square feet, and unmanned. Large laundromats are typically over 5,000 square feet and in busy areas.

High-volume laundromats with lots of ancillary laundry locations are the biggest and largest laundry businesses and normally have four or five streams of revenue that diversify their income.

The CLA offers more information about site selection for a laundromat business.

Step 6: Get permits and insurance

Once you have found a strategic location, there are things to do before you open to customers. You’ll need to get business licenses, a state tax ID or sales tax permit, and relevant insurance. Some common types of insurance include general liability, commercial property, workers compensation, and crime insurance.

Licenses, permits, and tax forms

Regardless of the legal structure you choose, determine if your business may require any licenses, permits, or tax forms to operate legally. Use the SBA’s tool. Also, you might be required to collect sales tax. Now go out and do it!

Business insurance

Business insurance article on a desktop computer

During his first week of operations, Jeff, the owner of Rosie Wash Express Laundry, witnessed a customer fall down, crack his head on the floor, and start bleeding. Hopefully, that shows why every laundromat owner needs commercial property insurance and liability insurance.

Both will typically be included in small business general liability insurance that you can get from trusted providers like Simply Business. Even if you have an insurance provider you trust for your personal property, it’s a smart move to work with a company that specializes in small businesses for your laundromat.

Furthermore, if you plan to hire employees, you will need workers compensation insurance and unemployment insurance. Gain general knowledge about insurance for a small business here.

You can also check out CLA’s listing of insurance products that meet the specific needs of a coin-operated laundry business.

Step 7: Set up your business

Get a business bank account and credit card, and purchase equipment. You’ll also need to set up software and prepare marketing materials.

Get a business bank account

Whether you start a new laundromat or buy an existing laundromat, you’ll need a business bank account. You can get a business bank account from major banks, regional banks, or online banks.

Regional banks tend to provide better business loans, but online banks offer better interest rates on cash in your bank account. Learn more about business bank accounts.

Get a business credit card

A business credit card can help fund your laundromat startup cost. You may have to get a secured one at first.

Purchase equipment

You’ll need washers, dryers, and other equipment for your laundromat. This equipment is a major part of the cost to open a laundromat.

Expect to spend between $1K and $5K each for a commercial washer or dryer. Meanwhile, industrial washers and dryers can cost between $10K and $50K depending on the load size and power.

The machines’ capacity can range from 30 to 80 pounds. To learn more, check out this handy formula for calculating the capacity of a machine.

Dave explains that you want to find properties with value-add opportunities. Look at the space usage, the amenities you can add, the services you can add, and how the property can be upgraded to provide a different or better experience. He told us:

We turned a $500-per-week property into a $7,000-per-week business by making changes.

As you’re shopping and pricing, consider that new equipment comes with a warranty. Read a white paper about replacing laundry equipment. Buy the right laundry equipment for your store by referring to the laundry equipment and services directories.

You might also want to include vending machines or a small convenience store in your laundromat to supplement income.

Technology

Technological innovations are fueling a revival of the laundry industry. Laundry apps are becoming increasingly popular, but what’s the bottom line?

  • Dexter Pay: According to its website, Dexter Pay is an app “that allows laundry customers to pay for their laundry and track cycle progress via their smartphone or mobile device.”
  • Speed Queen Value Center: Speed Queen is a popular laundromat equipment manufacturer that offers an app for cash users. Customers add physical cash to the value center machine, which uploads it to their payment app.
  • Accounting Software: Keep track of income and expenses and run regular reports to understand how your laundromat business performs. Try accounting software such as Xero or QuickBooks.

Step 8: Develop a marketing strategy

You can attract customers with a good location, but you can optimize that even further with marketing such as a website, social media, and advertisements.

Dave explains that you’ll want to invest in

A market differentiator that makes your laundry business stand out against [its] competitors.

He says some of the things that make a difference include:

  • Clean bathrooms
  • Attendants
  • Air conditioning
  • Doors
  • Payment systems
  • Other services

You can use all of these to market your business and stand out in the laundromat industry. Provide a value proposition, charge more, and market the differences without putting your competitors down.

Digital marketing

Digital marketing includes email newsletters, social media, and search engine optimization (SEO).

Google My Business helps you:

  • Track the number of visitors and impressions.
  • Determine where visitors see an advertisement based on a code.
  • Know if a new customer is the result of a conversion from your marketing campaign.

Facebook is another great site for marketing your business.

Another pro tip is to invest in an all-in-one marketing software like Semrush. The Site Audit tool demystifies search engine optimization for new business owners, while their Keyword Magic tool can save you tons of time on keyword research. Using this type of program also makes it much easier to track marketing campaigns across multiple platforms to ensure you’re getting the full value from the time and money you spend.

Printed materials

Print marketing includes business cards, flyers, brochures, t-shirts, and even uniforms! Try designing yours in Canva.

You might also run advertisements in local newspapers, or ValPack mailers, which reach 10K residents for $300 a month on a five-month subscription.

Attracting customers

Consider offering extra amenities, such as Wi-Fi. CLA published a guide to help laundry owners through the basics of setting up a secure network.

Other ways to create a welcoming atmosphere include cleanliness, professionalism, a children’s area, and televisions.

Making a million dollars isn't hard. You'll probably make that much or more in your lifetime, but that doesn't mean you'll develop wealth. For those who want to know how to become a millionaire, just spend less than you make. It's that simple!

We talked to Todd “TJ” Johnson, The Millionaire Mentor. TJ grew up poor and wanted to get out of South Carolina. He started out cutting grass and delivering newspapers as a kid just to feed himself, then joined the Air Force at 17 and went to school to study computer science.

When he left the military, he asked for a salary of the highest-paid military person, and people laughed at him. That didn’t discourage him. He asked what skills he needed to be worth it… then he developed the skills.

Now he owns multiple businesses including weight loss brands and supplements and coaching, and he’s even buying up others’ businesses. Here he’ll share the lessons he’s learned in his path to becoming a millionaire. We’ll share the wisdom he’s developed to make more money and get rich. 

Throughout this article keep in mind this advice from TJ:

[su_quote]The fastest way to become a millionaire is to help as many people as possible.[/su_quote]

How to Become a Millionaire

Businessman on a chair with lots of money on the floor

You'll need to invest $12,600 per month and earn a 10% annual return to become a millionaire in 5 years. That's matching the average stock market return. I don't know about you, but I'm not making enough to save that much money.

That means we need to find a way to increase our income to build financial freedom. Check out the blogs below to find ways to increase your income:

Most have low-cost barriers for a start-up and can make a ton of money quickly.

Step 1. Stop Spending Your Money on Frivolous Stuff!

To become a millionaire, you'll have to do more than make a ton of money to meet your financial goals. You can't spend the money. You need to reinvest it so your money makes more money while you sleep. TJ explained that the company you keep impacts how well you invest in your own business:

[su_quote]Stay away from bad entrepreneurs. If your dog or your kid doesn’t like someone, stay away.[/su_quote]

Spending money badly is also the most common reason for failure:

[su_quote]Inconsistency is the main cause of failure. Chasing skirts, drinking too much, and smoking weed harm success.[/su_quote]

Watch our interview with TJ below.

[su_youtube url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zZdn3mlU2A"]

Step 2. Create A Money Plan To Make A Million Dollars

Becoming a millionaire doesn’t have to be hard. As TJ told us, you just have to keep rising. The best way to do that is keep your personal finances and goals in perspective. The plan should include:

[su_note note_color="#dbeafc"]

  1. Your current financial scenario
  2. Your desired financial scenario
  3. Your timeline
  4. The steps to take to join the millionaire club

[/su_note]

Take a Fearless Inventory of Your Personal Circumstances

To reach financial security, you need to know where you are currently. This isn’t about judgment. It doesn’t matter where you currently are; you are capable of changing. But to be realistic about what steps to take, you need to know:

  • How much you make before and after taxes
  • Your current monthly expenses. Break them down by the type of bill.
  • The amount of debt you have. If you have high-interest debt, meaning debt that costs more to maintain than your investments make, pay it off ASAP (or wait for it to expire in 7 years).
  • Any assets you have. Cars, boats, and even homes can be money pits, so don’t count items that depreciate in value. Stocks, bonds, and real estate are great assets to hold.
  • Your effective tax rate.
  • The money in your checking and savings account.

We created a worksheet to help you reach millionaire status. Download it below.

[maxbutton id="3" url="https://www.upflip.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/UpFlip-Financial-Planning-Worksheet.pdf" text="DOWNLOAD HERE" ]

Set Your Timeline

Becoming a millionaire takes time. Sure, you could reach millionaire status by winning the lottery or knocking your first business out of the ballpark, but most successful people do it over years or decades. As TJ told us:

[su_quote]The term ‘easy business idea’ has failure written all over it. It’s not easy to make money. You have to work for it.[/su_quote]

The more time you have, the higher your likelihood of becoming a millionaire. While most people will only reach their millionaire goal close to retirement, the earlier you get started, and the more often you invest, the sooner you’ll reach your goal. As TJ explained:

[su_quote]You don’t just make a million at once. You invest, and it grows, then you get to $100K, then $500K, then $1M. It takes time.[/su_quote]

So how quickly do you want to be a millionaire?

How to Become a Millionaire Overnight

The easiest way to become a millionaire with no money is to go buy a lottery ticket and hope you win. You probably won’t get rich this way, but like Mark Cuban says:

[su_quote]It doesn’t matter how many times you fail. You only have to be right once, and then everyone can say you are an overnight success.[/su_quote]

Put Your Desired Results in Writing 

Write down your goals and be as detailed as possible. In the worksheet we created we have separate areas for each area of personal finance so that you can compare them to your current scenario. Be as specific as possible regarding net worth, diversification, emergency fund, real estate, and other investments.

Compare the Goals with Your Past Performance

Notebook and other office tools on the table

You’ll want to use the worksheet to compare where you are with where you want to be. Some commonly provided advice you might want to follow includes:

      1. Save 15% of your income. Personal finance is about starting early thinking about your life goals and retirement. If you get in the habit of setting aside your money and investing using dollar cost averaging, soon people will be asking you how to be a millionaire.
      2. Create an emergency fund. According to Motley Fool, Americans’ savings are less than half of pre-pandemic levels and 88% lower than the peak of savings during the pandemic. It’s always good to have a nest egg equal to at least three months’ worth of expenses.
      3. Pay off bad debt. Anything that doesn’t make more than the interest you’re earning is not good debt. This includes car loans. You’ll never get to a million dollars if you pay more interest than you’re making in investment accounts. Any interest rate over 10% is just not worth it.
      4. Write out your plan to get from where you are to where you want to be. If you’re not making enough money to meet your goals, then make a plan for how to move in the right direction. Make sure to include short-term goals like reaching $10K, $100K, $250K, $500K, $750K, and $1M. It makes it easier to conceive how to get rich.

Step 3. Make More Money

The more money you make, the easier it is to become a millionaire. Getting a high-paying job, a side hustle, and investing in real estate are some of the easiest ways to increase your earnings and start saving money.

If you have a low risk tolerance, buying businesses is one of the best ways to choose investments. Legendary investor Warren Buffett has turned Berkshire Hathaway into a conglomerate that owns businesses including:

Ben Bridge Jeweler Jazwares
Clayton Homes NetJets®
CTB Inc. Pampered Chef®
Duracell Pilot Travel Centers
Fechheimer Brothers Company Precision Castparts Corp.
FlightSafety RC Willey Home Furnishings
Fruit of the Loom Companies See's Candies
GEICO Auto Insurance Star Furniture
General Re TTI, Inc.
Helzberg Diamonds United States Liability Insurance Group
H.H. Brown Shoe Group W&W/AFCO Steel
HomeServices of America XTRA Corporation
International Dairy Queen, Inc.  

This strategy has been successful for a lot of wealthy people.

Passive Income

Investing in passive income opportunities is a great way to create a diversified portfolio. A millionaire depends on their own money making them more money.

If you have little excess cash but still want to invest, consider using Stash, which allows you to invest with just five dollars. Once you invest, they’ll give you a free $25. If you’d prefer a passive income business, check out one of the best ways to become a millionaire: vending machine businesses.

Index Funds

An index fund is the best way to become a millionaire if you want to avoid brokerage services and financial advisors. If you have a wealthy family, you may know good financial advisors, but I don’t trust people to manage my money. An index fund matches the performance of the stocks in the index it tracks.

When considering index funds, pay attention to their fees. Most have less than 1% fees. If you choose one with the lowest fees, you’ll save money.

You can also use mutual funds, but they have higher fees and are less liquid.

Employer Match on Retirement Funds

If you are an employee or self-employed with a 401K, check if employer match options are offered. Many will match up to 10% of your salary when you put it into a retirement account. If they do, you should be using it. That extra cash is effectively additional funds. Over time, the additional funds will create a nice nest egg for retirement.

Concepts You Need to Understand to Become a Millionaire

If you want to retire early, never have to worry about extra money, or want to provide for your loved ones when you die, you have to treat money like a game. It's just a means to an end.

Three of the most important strategies you can use are:

      1. Compound Interest
      2. Diversification
      3. Tax Advantages

What is Compound Interest?

Compound interest is interest that is reinvested to create more gains. Want to know how I figured out that you'd need to invest $12,600 monthly at 10% interest for 5 years to become a millionaire? I used the compound interest calculator I created to calculate the figure. Check out the table below.

Compounding can be done with any form of cash flow. You just have to put the money into something that will earn returns that beat inflation. Wasting your time putting more money in a savings account that earns less than 1% per month will never get you to your financial goals. You’ll lose money yearly if you make less than inflation on your returns.

Does this mean you should find the highest return and ape into it like crypto bros?

No, please don’t!

Diversification Protects You!

Do you remember companies like Enron? How about Bernie Madoff? These famous scammers helped millions of people become rich, then went bankrupt—along with the many investors that they scammed. We’ve seen the same thing occur with some bankrupted crypto projects that failed to separate client funds from company funds.

During my finance courses for my MBA, one of the lectures was about why the Dow Jones Industrial Average uses 30 stocks to simulate the returns of the entire stock market. Using statistical analysis (which I will spare you from for the sake of readability), they found that you could accurately model the performance of the entire stock market with 30 well-chosen stocks. This strategy saves a lot of money over buying every stock, and the difference in risk was less than 1%.

You can also use diversification to become a millionaire by investing in a combination of assets like:

      • Stocks
      • Options
      • Bonds
      • Crypto
      • Real Estate

If you have a good amount of diversification, you’re not likely to lose over the long term, but most financial advisors still recommend thinking about investing over a ten-year time frame. 

There are other strategies you’ll want to use as you build more wealth. You’ll learn about them in the next section.

Taxes Are Written to Be Gamed

Woman writing notes while using a calculator

In today’s world, a million dollars isn’t that much, but to become a millionaire, you need to learn to play legally within the system. There are numerous financial instruments the wealthy use to increase and protect their financial freedom and build wealth. They use:

      • Tax-advantaged retirement accounts
      • Trusts
      • Corporations
      • LLCs

Let’s look at some of the ways you can use these to accelerate your journey toward making a million dollars.

Tax-Advantaged Retirement Accounts

You’re probably familiar with a retirement account like a 401(k), Individual Retirement Account (IRA), or a Roth IRA, but did you know there are over 16 types of retirement plans?  Some like a Simplified Employee Pension allow up to 25% of a salary to be paid to an employee in their IRA without a matching contribution. 

Retirement accounts can greatly enhance your personal financial scenario.  401(k)s and traditional IRAs reduce your current tax liabilities, but you pay taxes on the withdrawal. Meanwhile, with a Roth IRA, you pay taxes on the front end, and you collect the withdrawals tax-free. Depending on your current tax rate and your tax rate when you collect, you can pay fewer taxes over the course of your life.

Trusts

You can use a trust to protect your money when you die. These contracts prevent probate because they specify how the money is distributed. A common trust used if you want to pass on more money to people who are at least 37.5 years younger than you is an Irrevocable Life Insurance Trust (ILIT), which can be set up by a financial planner to help protect generational wealth.

Corporations

Corporations have a 15-21% tax rate, while personal income tax can be as high as 37%. Dividend payments can also be used to reduce your overall taxable consequences. Plus they get a lot of deductions that individuals don’t. Filing your taxes as a corporation rather than an individual can help you save significantly come tax time.

Limited Liability Companies

Most millionaires have multiple small business ventures protected under separate LLCs. Doing so prevents one investment from being harmed by another investment in the case of a liability claim. This makes becoming a millionaire easier because one failure won’t destroy your other businesses or your pursuit to build wealth.

UpFlip New Home Cleaning Checklist This is a much longer residential cleaning checklist than the daily cleaning checklist, which we’ll discuss next.

Printable Daily Cleaning Checklist Template

Printable daily cleaning checklist A daily cleaning checklist should make it easy to keep a space clean every day. We have created one for homes because most businesses will normally require more intense cleaning on a daily basis.

Make sure to do the following on a daily basis:
  1. Make beds.
  2. Collect laundry from bathrooms and bedrooms.
  3. Do laundry.
  4. Wash dishes.
  5. Collect trash and take it outside.

Find the Checklist You Needed?

Now you have a checklist for home and commercial cleaning. We hope to add to this list in the future. What cleaning checklist would you like to see us add to the page?

Are you worried about the direction of the global economy?

You’re not alone. Both business owners and employees are feeling a crunch from rising costs. That’s why we’re going to discuss recession-proof businesses.

[su_note note_color="#dbeafc"] We’ll help you understand more about recessions, including:

When you’re done reading this, you’ll have an understanding of recession-proof sectors and be prepared for the next economic downturn. Read from start to finish or click any of the links above to jump straight to the section you need to know more about right now.

Are we in an economic downturn?

According to the Federal Reserve, as of April 5, 2024, we are not in a recession, but economic downturns tend to occur every 6.33 years and typically last between 6 and 18 months.

The last economic downturn was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and government shutdowns that lasted two quarters. Prior to that, the housing market crash of 2008 resulted in a recession that lasted for nearly two years.

Many people believe that the relatively high rate of inflation, the housing and rent bubble, and the reduction in spending power for many Americans are signs that the economic climate is primed for another economic crisis.

If you’re a business owner, now’s the time to should look at your business model and consider how it will survive and thrive during tough economic times.

What are recession-proof businesses?

Man in a suit standing under a black umbrella as cash rains down around him

Recession-proof businesses are companies in industries that tend to perform better than the gross domestic product (GDP) as a whole.

As we experienced during the pandemic, if a small business was considered an “essential service,” it could ride out the tough times because the economic activity that kept it afloat didn’t stop, even when most businesses were not allowed to operate as usual.

What industries are recession-proof?

When a recession hits, some industries and sectors tend to do better than others. There are essential services and products that people still need during economic slumps, including:

  • Food
  • Housing
  • Utility services
  • Healthcare
  • Disposable goods
  • Consumer staples
  • Auto repairs

Meanwhile, revenue streams tend to dry up for some companies when widespread economic hardship occurs. Consumer demand for the following tends to decrease during an economic recession:

  • New automobiles
  • Vacations
  • Restaurants
  • Large purchases

The economic conditions during each recession will be different, which means consumers cut costs in different areas depending on what the scenario is.

For instance, during the Great Recession in 2008 and 2009, real estate agents were hardest hit because the cash reserves and risk appetite of banks were vastly reduced. In the 1980s, oil embargos caused people to reduce their driving because of gas shortages.

How do economic downturns impact businesses?

When economic uncertainty hits, small business owners will normally experience a reduction of incoming cash flow and be compelled to tighten up their budgets and stop hiring.

When the economic situation gets even worse, they may need to offer cheaper alternatives, lay people off, and, in the worst-case scenario, close their businesses.

Industries that are recession-proof will normally be able to avoid many of the worst-case scenarios because people still need food, clothing, shelter, and other recession-proof products.

Recession-Proof Business Ideas: 13 Good Businesses to Start in a Bad Economy

Man in a suit holding a fan of cash and a tablet showing a downward-trending graph and a cartoon lightbulb

In the sections below, we’ll discuss industries that do well in recession.

The following businesses are sorted based on the number of searches for each type of recession-proof business. Why? Search volume is a good indicator of the demand for information about recession-proof industries.

Consider the following recession-proof business ideas:

  • Affiliate marketing
  • Grocery stores
  • Food delivery services
  • Auto repair shops
  • Home improvement and home repair companies
  • Property management companies
  • Cleaning services
  • Accounting services
  • Healthcare industry
  • Child care
  • Information technology support
  • Pet care
  • Dollar stores

Keep reading to learn about the most recession-proof industries.

1. Affiliate Marketing

According to Kinsta, 56% of affiliate marketers increased their earnings during the recession of 2020, making it the best recession-proof business. If that’s not enough, Authority Hacker expects affiliate marketing to be a $27.78 billion recession-proof industry by 2027.

Affiliate marketing is the most commonly searched for recession-proof business. It doesn’t require an inventory, and you make commissions on every sale.

You might need to refer people to recession-proof services like bookkeeping services and rideshare services to keep your income flowing, but there are plenty of great affiliate marketing offerings.

Learn more about affiliate marketing through our interview with affiliate marketing master Matt Diggity.

2. Grocery Store

Grocery stores are another of the most recession-resistant business models. The food industry is never going to end because we have to eat to survive.

According to Forbes, people spend about 14% of their income on food, and the percentage of that spending that goes to fast food and restaurants has declined from 45% to 40%. That means people are grocery shopping more.

Check out our interview with Punardeep Sandhu, a serial entrepreneur who owns a grocery store.

3. Food Delivery Services

According to Bloomberg Second Measure, delivering food spiked during the pandemic. Given this industry hasn’t been around long enough to survive multiple recessions, it might not be as recession-resistant as the chart suggests.

That said, a business owner could focus on offering the same services for grocery stores to help protect against sudden reduced cash flow.

Find out how Adam Haber started his courier services working with Amazon.

4. Auto Repair Shops

Denver Post "Auto mechanics reap bounty of downturn" article on a desktop computer

According to the Denver Post, auto mechanics saw a 16% increase in revenue during the 2008 financial crisis, making it a fairly recession-proof business. These support services benefited from the lack of available loans during that time.

Meanwhile, repair shops saw a decrease in business during the pandemic because people drove 13.2% less.

Find out how Lucky Sing started his repair business in 2016 for just $20,000.

5. Home Improvement and Home Repair Companies

During the Great Recession, the home improvement and repairs industry dropped 1% the first year before starting to increase again according to Statista. Meanwhile, home repairs increased by 22% during the pandemic.

Depending on the cause of each recession, the business opportunities may be in repairs or improvement. Offering both types of services makes a business that much more recession-proof.

Check out our list of construction businesses to learn more about starting home repair and improvement businesses.

6. Property Management Companies

According to the Congressional Research Survey, there are 49.5 million rental properties in the United States. Furthermore, 44% of them are managed by property managers according to DoorLoop.

People don’t stop renting just because the economy isn’t doing well, and these companies take a percentage of monthly revenue.

7. Cleaning Services

A cleaning business can be recession-resistant. Home cleaners may find people cut back on cleanings, but janitorial services are unlikely to stop managing cleaning contracts because nobody wants to go to a business that is filthy.

During the pandemic, many cleaning services added sterilization services to drive new revenue and growth.

Learn how Christobal Mondragon makes over $1.5 million per year in our exclusive cleaning business course.

8. Accounting Services

Almost everyone in the United States needs accounting services. Some people only need once-per-year tax filing assistance, while others need financial advisors for things like:

  • Financial planning services
  • Bookkeeping
  • Quarterly taxes
  • Payroll
  • Comparing financing options

These services are in high demand during all economic conditions.

9. Healthcare Industry

The healthcare sector benefits from people getting sick and having emergencies. That means healthcare companies make money no matter what the economy is doing.

Right now is a perfect time for starting a new business in the healthcare industry. According to The Hill, the entire healthcare industry is facing shortages of essential workers. The work is typically high paying and offers job security for those who can handle the grueling hours and stressful environment.

10. Child Care

According to Statista, there are 46.6 million American kids under 11 years old. The Census Bureau estimates 17% of their parents rely on paid childcare services. Meanwhile, the Department of Labor reports that people pay between $5,357 and $17,171 per year for childcare.

In-home daycares make great small businesses—you can save money and fulfill the ever-higher demand for childcare.

Pro Tip: Check out our picks for 698 Endearing Daycare Names and How to Start a Day Care (in 9 Simple Steps).

11. Information Technology Support

IT support companies are recession-proof companies because people still need help solving their tech-related problems, even in a downturn.

According to Axios, tech companies did poorly at the turn of the century because of the tech bust, but 2008 led to a lot of new technology that opened new business opportunities. Then, in the pandemic, there were grants to help small businesses implement new technology.

Small business ideas in this field tend to have high profits that make it easier for them to be recession-proof businesses. Just make sure to save money so you can weather economic downturns and invest in businesses that thrive in recession.

12. Pet Care

Recession-resistant industries include pet care. These are good business ideas because pets still need to be fed and go to the bathroom during economic downturns.

These recession-resistant businesses can use affordable luxuries like online shopping, digital marketing, and social media to make modern life easier for their pet-owning customers.

13. Dollar Stores

Dollar stores tend to do best when money is tight. According to USA Today, multiple chains are closing down their dollar stores due to financial challenges.

These businesses need to be able to purchase things in bulk and sell them for low costs, which requires implementing successful and sustainable buying and pricing strategies.

While dollar stores can be businesses that are recession-proof, getting into the game might be best in expansionary times.

Benefits of Starting a Business in a Bad Economy

Odd Pizza’s owner showing his restaurants offerings in a brightly lit restaurant space

Starting a business during a recession can actually be really beneficial. A recession often provides people who want to start a business with some competitive advantages, including:

  • An Obvious Problem: Recessions are almost always tied to a specific event or industry bubble. Finding the solution to solve that problem can be highly beneficial.
  • Lower Costs: Many large purchases, like equipment, real estate, and existing businesses, tend to be less expensive during economic downturns.
  • More government incentives: Governments tend to provide other businesses more support during recessions than expansionary times. As long as you provide a solution in the industries they are focused on, this can help you.

Don’t focus so much on what industries do well in a recession; rather, focus on the industries in which you can differentiate yourself.

Consider this example: Lee Kindell started Moto Pizza when COVID shutdowns closed his hotel. He put $60,000 on a credit card to open the pizza shop—and has since opened multiple locations. Find out how he did it in the interview below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4qjfVZR51s

Conclusion

At this point, you have an understanding of recession-proof businesses that commonly perform well during an economic downturn.

We discussed the industries that perform well during recessions, how businesses are impacted by recessions, what businesses do well in a recession, and why you might want to start a business…even during an economic downturn.

It’s up to you to do the research on each business, but we have interviewed hundreds of business owners to learn what they did and how you can speed up your process to success. Consider taking one of our courses to start a successful business faster.
