Grafton laundry business has loads of potential

AFTER more than seven years in the laundry business, Beatrix Bennett- Hillier is getting ready to hang up the washing powder.

Beatrix, or Trixie as most people know her, put Jacaranda Laundry in Grafton on the market three weeks ago to go into semi-retirement.

She said it was a coincidence her decision came at the end of the financial year, but if it helped her sell the laundry, she wouldn't complain.

"I've got a bad knee and have been told I need a new one but I'm holding off until I can sell the business," she said.

Ms Bennet-Hillier said the laundry would suit a family, or a couple who wanted to "buy themselves a job".

"It's the only commercial laundry between Casino and Coffs Harbour so I have quite a lot of contracts, a heavy work-load and long list of long term regular customers."
