Laundrapp launches into the commercial laundry sector


Beginning in London, the Laundrapp commercial fleet of five vans and eight drivers have already hit the road, and plan to increase this exponentially as demand increases.

Operating 364 days a year, Laundrapp will launch with Christian Dior and Z-Hotels as customers, servicing everything from linen, staff uniforms, shop stock, table cloths, and chef’s whites to towels.

Laundrapp, who was named ‘App of the Year’* in 2016, is one of the big success stories of the UK digital industry and will continue on this growth trajectory throughout 2017 with the business exponentially growing month on month. Following the announcement in January of expansion into international markets, Laundrapp’s sights are now firmly set on revolutionising the multi-billion pound commercial laundry sector.

CEO, Edward Relf comments: “We have seen a huge growth in the commercial sector of our business and this has largely been driven by in-bound demand. Laundrapp was set up as a smart scalable technology platform and a move into the commercial laundry space is entirely inevitable for such a rapid growing technology platform. 

Relf continues, “With a lack of innovation in the commercial laundry sector, brands and corporates have been delighted with our innovative offering. This is a very exciting growth phase for the business, we are adding to our fleet, employing more staff and are expanding into new sectors and territories. Laundrapp has always been a disruptive business and we are ready to shake up the commercial laundry sector just as we’ve done across the consumer laundry space.”

Laundrapp has had huge success in the UK consumer space over the last three years, which has seen the business expand to 100 locations, employing over 80 staff and a network of hundreds of vehicles across the UK. In February, Laundrapp announced plans to expand globally in 2017, with licenses already signed in Australia, New Zealand and more recently Brazil.

They recently attended the Clean Show 2017 in Las Vegas to begin their journey into the US market and meet with prospective partners. During the four-day event, Relf and the rest of the senior executive team presented their vision for the business, its focus on digital innovation, and how this relates to US market expansion.

Relf comments: “Laundrapp has revolutionised the serviced laundry market in the UK, and as part of our commitment to global expansion we are focusing on building the brand in the US market. Laundrapp is bringing a digital revolution to the entire global laundry industry and we look forward to meeting future prospective partners at the Clean Show 2017.” 

Edward continues: “We have been amazed by the growth of Laundrapp, this is clearly an industry in need of digital innovation and Laundrapp has grown to become the leading technology across the market. Not only are we providing smart on-demand technology but we’re also expanding the industry to a new audience of digital first millennials.”
