Despite Economic Downturn, City Capital Corporation Expands Operations

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwire - March 23, 2009) - City Capital Corporation (PINKSHEETS: CTCC) has completed the first acquisition for its City Laundry, LLC subsidiary. The 2,000 sq. ft./30-machine laundromat purchased in February 2009 has annual revenues of approximately $108,000.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, total gross revenues for the industry are nearly $20 billion annually (source: 2007 U.S. Bureau of Labor). "More importantly," Mr. Taylor points out, "according to the Small Business Administration, these businesses have a 98% success rate nationwide, and they historically provide investors from 25% to 50% returns in all economic climates. That translates into reliable cash flow for the company and a strong, stable job source within the community." ...
