Fast, Easy Dry Cleaner Funding When You Need It

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 won’t fund dry cleaning businesses because they are considered “high risk” due to factors like declining demand and market size, reliance on economic conditions, the availability of disposable income, and perceived safety and environmental concerns.

With a streamlined online application, faster turnaround, and flexible approval requirements, Greenbox Capital can approve more dry cleaner funding than traditional lenders, often in just one business day. We provide a number of different types of small business funding to help grow your dry cleaning business, with alternative dry cleaner funding from as low as $3,000 up to $500,000. We fund all types of dry cleaners in Canada, including specialty cleaners, garment cleaners, leather cleaners, repair and maintenance, clothing alterations, and more.

Dry Cleaner Funding Rates

Dry cleaner funding rates depend on the type of alternative small business funding you receive. Most alternative dry cleaner funding options use a factor rate instead of a traditional interest rate. Factor rates are simple decimal figures that show how much “extra” you will owe on the original amount of the loan and are determined based on your risk assessment.

Dry Cleaner Funding Q&A

Competition for my services is high. Can I use alternative funding to market my dry cleaner?

Yes, expanding your marketing strategy is an ideal use of your dry cleaner funding. Whether you are engaging in digital or traditional marketing, increasing your brand awareness and driving traffic to your business is good for business growth.

How do I get funding for a dry cleaner?

You can get funding for a dry cleaner from traditional lenders like federal funding programs or a bank, as well as from alternative lenders like Greenbox Capital. Alternative lenders have more flexible approval requirements that consider the overall health and potential of your business—not just your credit score—and offer revenue-based financing options that are more ideal for businesses with lower credit scores, such as merchant cash advances. Contact one of our Funding Advisors to learn more.

Why should I consider an alternative lender for my dry cleaner funding?

Most traditional banks consider dry cleaners to be high-risk and will not fund them. As an alternative lender, we have different approval requirements, and can approve funding for “high risk” industries. We can provide you with the funds you need to cover project expenses, labour, materials and more, often in less than 24 hours.

I want to hire a tailor so I can serve more customers. What type of dry cleaner funding is best for this purpose?

A merchant cash advance is one of our most popular funding options, and is ideal for implementing strategies that will increase your business’s revenue. We recommend you speak with one of our knowledgeable Funding Advisors—they will help you select the right solution for your business.

What do I need to do to qualify for a small business loan?

We have a very simple application process, with same day funding available. To get started, fill out our one-page application form or speak with a Funding Advisor.
