Dry Cleaning Business: Startup Pro-Forma Excel Model

Forecast revenues and expenses of a dry cleaning business with unique business logic specific to the industry.

This model is focused on a high level top-down / bottom-up hybrid. Startup costs and monthly running costs are more of a bottom-up approach. Revenue drivers and growth are more top-down.

There is logic that allows for a forecast to go out as far as 50 years. The Pro-Forma is on an annual basis.

You can add in an option for 1 loan that dynamically flows through to cash flow. The exit multiple is base don EBITDA only.

There is a returns tab that shows years held, break even year, IRR, initial investment vs. total and net cash returned. The total cash and ROI multiple are displayed as well as an annualized total/net cash return in $'s.

The idea here is clear and simple inputs for a straight forward Pro Forma creation. The revenue logic allows you to enter the avg. pieces ran per day, the avg. ticket price, and the total days active per year in order to back into annual revenue. That is then increased by a determined % each year.

One unique piece of logic is that you can define what year the revenue and expense figures stop increasing and level off. This is a nice feature to help more accurately build a financial scenario.

Beyond the video tutorial, additional features have been added to show a discounted cash flow analysis based on an entered discount rate.
