Product/Service Summary

"WashBuddy" bootstrapped with the motto that any successful business should remove obstacles of people which will make their life easy and enable them to spend their time in achieving their vision in life.

Laundry - necessary evil - not affected by recession.

There is a huge gap between the non-affordable premium laundries and low cost unorganized laundries.
This made the founders envisage the "Washbuddy Laundromat" concept which is an idea that clicked. With more than 10000+ customers built over a short period of time with most of the customers being repeat customers it speaks a lot about washbuddy's commitment to deliver. Washbuddy is already the largest chain of laundromats in Bangalore and looking to expand much faster in the franchising route.
