Starting a business of manufacturing and selling custom work shirt can become a low-investment job opportunity for those who know how to make clothing or who are looking for a motivation to learn how to do it.
Currently, there are a large number of items in which employees must wear uniforms. Such is the case of hospitality, gastronomy, medicine, education and that of industries, among others.
Also, these garments have the peculiarity that, when used daily, they tend to deteriorate and, therefore, replace quickly, generating a sales volume more than interesting for their manufacturers.
So, entrepreneurs: here are some tips on the item that can be very useful when you start thinking about setting up the business.
· Initial Investment
The incredibly striking aspect of this item is that you can start the activity with a minimum initial investment. To make clothes it is not necessary (or expected by the client) that we have an attractive, colourful and street lounge, but having a comfortable workspace in our homes or in a place that is accessible to us is sufficient.
· Types Of Workwear
There are different types of workwear that we can make and, in order to determine which of them we will start with, we will have to analyze, on the one hand, the businesses located in the area that need this product and, on the other, the types of fabrics available in the market. That is, not only must we take into account that there is a demand for the type of clothing to be made, but we must also have the necessary elements to produce it.
· Business Strategies
If we do not have automated facilities that allow us to make uniforms for all the staff of a five-star hotel, we shouldn’t offer our services until we can meet your demand.
Meanwhile, to begin to gain recognition in the environment, we suggest offering our services to smaller companies (such as small hotels and restaurants), to individual buyers or specific orders. A good strategy to capture the former could be to offer them an accessible price, below the market average, so that they can be added to our portfolio and have their recommendation.
