9 years ago I was meeting with my accountant to discuss starting a dry cleaning route business and get his opinion on the idea. When I told him I planned on opening 5 dry cleaning routes spread between two cities that would offer free pick-up and delivery he nearly laughed me out of his office. Lucky for me I didn’t listen to his negative comments. Fast forward a few years, I was having lunch with the same accountant and he admitted he had been wrong about offering a dry cleaning route service and almost as good as him admitting he was wrong, he also bought lunch. Unfortunately many dry cleaners have felt the same way as my accountant did and passed on the opportunity to start their own dry cleaning routes, boy was that a mistake.
