Commercial laundries are very popular in Hong Kong and, in a sense, they were necessary because of the limited space in some of the apartments in the city. These types of establishments provide low-cost and convenient solutions for families and businesses who need cleaning options on a regular basis.
Starting a laundry business in Hong Kong can be convenient for many investors and it can be a good option for those who are looking for an investment idea.
We invite you to watch a short video about the needed steps for opening a laundry business in Hong Kong:
Starting a laundry business in Hong Kong
Investors who want to enter the laundry business have several options: they may provide 24-hour coin-operated laundry machines for their clients to use as they please or they can provide professional cleaning services.
Laundries and/or Laundromats in Hong Kong can be situated throughout the city in locations that offer enough space to base the washing machines and dryers. The initial investment will include the costs for company formation in Hong Kong and those for the equipment needed to provide the actual laundry services. Investors can open a laundry on their own, as a sole owner or they can form a partnership with another investor. When they decide to open a company in Hong Kong investors may choose between several business forms.
