Washmen is a mobile app-based laundry service that operates in Dubai and Abu-Dhabi. They provide pick-up and delivery of laundry straight to the doorsteps of their customers. Washmen is the brainchild of Jad Halaoui and Rami Shaar, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Executive Officer of the company respectively. Together, they founded the company in 2015 and have been operating since then.
Halaoui worked as an electrical engineer in a big corporation where software replaced 5-6 engineers and his friend Rami Shaar worked at Uber. Shaar approached Halaoui with the idea of a laundry startup, and together they found Washmen.
Initially, they started with an asset-free business model where they connected customers with laundromats. Currently, they have taken over the supply chain aspect of the business by launching its own 30000 sq ft laundry and cleaning facility.
According to Shaar, the app now serves over 30,000 customers and 300,000 items a month making it the most popular laundry service in Dubai. The main reason for its success can be attributed to them charging 20-30% less than their competitors.
Washmen raised $6.6 Million in their series B round of funding, making it a hit among the investors. Their app is available on both Android and iOS.
How does Washmen Work?
Users of this app place their dry cleaning and laundry request by specifying the pick-up and drop off times. They deliver within 48 hours, but for a premium (50%), you can have it delivered in a day. When you place an order, the nearest pick-up driver to your location will collect your laundry items from your doorstep and send it to the cleaning facility. Your clean laundry will be delivered to you within 48 hours.
Washmen operates on a happy hour concept where the prices drop at the busiest hours where multiple orders in the same area get an incentive as the transport cost is saved.
They use color-coded bags depending on the type of service you desire. You don't even have to be at home when they come for pick-up or drop off. You can also leave additional instructions via their app as per your needs. This level of convenience has made Washmen quite popular among Dubai and Abu Dhabi demographic.
