The Clean Bean launderette
On Bristol's Gloucester Road, one of Britain's most vibrant
independent trading communities, you'll find a launderette that's
quite unlike most others.
The Clean Bean launderette has evolved to add a coffee shop,
free Internet access and a child-friendly garden to its machine
washing and dry cleaning services. Owner David Magnus says: "It's
not your typical launderette. Most of them are old-fashioned, but
we want to make life a bit easier and more fun for everyone
In 2012, the business will save thousands of pounds by switching
a range of overheads through Make It Cheaper, including its insurance and business
The laundrette's 'merchant services' bill will also be cut by
around £300 because it has switched its chip & pin provider to
one that charges 50% less to process customer card payments than
its previous one.
David recognises that reducing indirect costs is an effective
way for businesses like The Clean Bean launderette to boost their
bottom line. He adds: "Overheads are much closer to home for us
than they would be for a big chain. So it's an obvious choice for
us to shop around and not see our profits disappear into the
pockets of suppliers."
