Most Singapore residents are so busy going to work or running their own businesses that they look for possibilities to reduce the home-related chores such as cooking, doing the dishes and cleaning the house. If instead of cooking one can eat at a restaurant and instead of cleaning can use the latest technology to spare some time on doing the dishes and vacuuming, doing the laundry was still an issue until some time ago. Anticipating the needs of more and more busy people, enterprisers in Singapore have started to catering to these needs by opening laundry businesses. Also, most real estate developers have built spaces at the basements of the residential homes and flats which can host laundromats.
If you are interested in opening a laundry business, our Singapore company formation specialists can assist you.
