FORMER MERRILL LYNCH ADVISOR WENT FROM TRADING STOCKS TO WASHING SOCKS TO LAUNCH $500K DRY CLEANER INVESTMENT FUND EXCLUSIVELY FOR TENNESSEE RESIDENTS
Drystar Disrupt Fund lets you passively invest as little as $100 in newly developed dry cleaning locations and splits the profits with you every month.
[NASHVILLE, TN, AUGUST 12TH, 2018] Drystar, Inc. (www.drystarfund.com), an emerging laundry and dry cleaning company, announced today the launch of the Drystar Disrupt Fund. A new investment vehicle, exclusively for Tennessee residents. The Fund's objective is to generate monthly income for investors by raising local capital and investing those funds directly into newly developed, fully managed, dry cleaning locations in Nashville, TN.
"I left Merrill Lynch to pursue my passion of building a truly inclusive economy. An economy that worked for everyone and not just a few. I noticed, early on, a common trait about the wealthy clients I advised, they were given opportunities to invest in assets that most people didn’t have access to. These assets generated above-market returns, passive monthly income, and had special tax advantages. These assets were the hotels we vacation at, the condominiums we rent from, and the businesses we patron every day. I didn’t see an opportunity like this for the rest of us, so I created it. If you have a pulse, live in Tennessee, and have as little as $100, you can invest in an asset that is stable, has healthy cash flows, and proven demand,” says founder Brandon Littleton.
Focusing on transforming the way people take care of the clothes they love, Drystar is known for bringing a stagnant industry into the digital age. From launching an “Uber-like” on-demand laundry and dry cleaning app to 24/7 text-enabled customer service, the company has always focused on creating an experience that’s built for today's consumers.
In the Fall of 2016, We launched the Drystar pilot location to act as our MVP (Minimal Viable Product). “We wanted to truly understand the problems we were solving, the customers' pain points, and challenge industry assumptions. We’re now equipped with two years of insights, customers, and a business model that we're ready to scale,” says co-founder James Littleton.
“Investing in the pilot location was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! If you told me a few years ago that I would be generating passive income from a dry cleaners, I wouldn’t have believed it,” says investor Armand VanHeyningen.
Drystar intends to use the capital raised to execute its “hub and spoke” operating model, based on a centralized storefront/facility and numerous smaller drop-stores within one market. This has been proven advantageous and more profitable for experienced operators that are currently deploying the model in other markets. Drystar will take on the task of fully managing each location in exchange for a percentage of the profits.
“Our strategy is to consolidate all the fragmented dry cleaning activity in Nashville into one centralized brand “The Drystar Brand” and have our investors financially benefit from an asset that they can touch, feel, and drive by every day,” says founder Brandon Littleton.
