Smart Laundry, a digital laundry and dry-cleaning delivery service, is currently seeking $1,500 through crowdfunding campaign on Gofund me as it prepares to grow its platform. Founded in 2017, Smart Laundry currently has over 100 subscriptions and will cover 30% of Johannesburg.
“Scheduled from our simple app and website: we collect, clean, fold, and return our customers’ laundry – all within 24 hours. Our software automates the entire logistics chain, and it is this efficiency which allows us to stay price competitive – our prices start at $2.65 / kg of laundry. We work with a simple goal in mind, to make it easy for all Joburgrs to get their dry-cleaning and laundry done by offering convenient and affordable services.”
“Funds raised in this round will be used to increase our digital marketing budget and to expand to initially cover all postal districts in Johannesburg. We intend to hire 2 full time marketing executives to expand our residential and convenience store revenue streams. In addition, we will enhance our IT infrastructure and plan to open high street stores at strategic locations to minimise our logistics cost. We also plan to launch our new premium service for the affluent consumer market.”
