Dry Cleaner Funding

Demand for dry cleaning services is changing, and it’s more important than ever for dry cleaners to adapt to remain competitive. Stay on top of industry trends with up to $500,000 in funding from Greenbox Capital® in as little as 24 hours.

Direct, Alternative Dry Cleaner Loans

Getting the dry cleaner funding you need from a traditional lender can be difficult. The application process may take months, and there’s no guarantee of approval. Most traditional lenders like banks deny dry cleaner loans because they are considered “high risk” due to factors like declining demand and market size, reliance on economic conditions, the availability of disposable income, as well as perceived safety and environmental concerns. 

As an alternative lender, Greenbox Capital can approve more dry cleaner loans than traditional lenders, and we can approve funding faster, with funds deposited in a little as one business day. We provide a variety of small business funding options to help grow your dry cleaning business, with alternative dry cleaner loans from as low as $3,000 up to $500,000.

How To Use Dry Cleaner Funding

Sometimes, you need a quick infusion of funds to help meet the unique challenges of running a dry cleaning business, such as:

  • Stagnant industry growth and declining market size
  • Fewer garments requiring dry cleaning
  • Increasing consumer preference for machine washable garments
  • Growing consumer demand for improved technological and sustainable practices
  • Strict government regulations

Alternative dry cleaner loans can provide the working capital you need to keep up with these industry trends, changes to consumer demand, or even expand your business. Use your funding to:

  • Expand your services to offer cleaning for other items, such as drapery, upholstery, carpet, or leathers
  • Add tailoring or repair services, or off-season storage for seasonal garments
  • Upgrade technology—invest in a new point-of-sale system or improve back-of-house operations
  • Keep up with environmental regulations by offering chemical-free and sustainable services
  • Create a loyalty program for frequent customers or high-volume locations such as business offices
