Element 23. Delivery Advantages > The Coin-Operated Laundry—Delivery Advantages...

The Coin-Operated Laundry—Delivery Advantages score: 7

Delivery advantages for this business will rely heavily upon the attributes of your location. You will score well if you are near a freeway in the center of the metropolitan area. You will score low if you are on the edge of the metropolitan area far from a freeway. You will earn a negative score if you are on the wrong side of a river with just a single two-lane bridge. Let’s assume you score a 7 on this element (you could score higher if you were to have a prime location—let’s see what happens with a marginal score). You will need to drive this score up, hopefully over a 9. One way to improve the score here might be to piggyback your pick-up and delivery with other pickups and deliveries around town. How about local UPS or FedEx or some other courier? Could you contract with them to do your distribution for you? What about the delivery services for the local medical labs? Might they add your chores too? Remember that they are covering your footprint with excess capacity and they might work with you to help them raise revenues without a material increase in costs. Ask around so that you can create delivery advantages for yourself.
