Drycleaners Expect Equipment, Supply Costs to Remain Steady in 2009

CHICAGO — Drycleaners expect to keep equipment and supply costs steady in the upcoming year, according to the StatShot panel, a group of industry operators tapped by AmericanDrycleaner.com to contribute financial information anonymously for use at the site.
Nationwide, operators said they expect their plants’ capital expenditures on equipment and supplies to increase an average of 3.2% — about the same rate as inflation. Half (50%) of respondents will try to keep capital expenditures flat, regardless of any price increases in ongoing expenses.
To ensure accuracy, AmericanDrycleaner.com needs your help with future StatShot surveys. Responses are kept strictly confidential to protect proprietary financial information. E-mail drycleaner@crain.com today to join the StatShot survey panel!
