Laundromatic is changing the way everyday folk interact with their local dry-cleaner.
Everneeded something dry-cleaned pretty fast but haven’t had the time to leave the office and get it done? Enter Laundromatic, an on demand dry-cleaning service that provides a pick-up and delivery service for dry-cleaning in Melbourne’s CBD. Leveraging the boom in Australia’s on-demand services, Laundromatic bridges the gap for time-poor CBD workers, bringing your dry-cleaning directly to your place of work.
We sat down withLaundromatic Co-Founder Eberto Lopez for aquick chat on Laundromatic and the launch of theMelbourne start-up.
Tell us were the idea for Laundromatic came from:
We noticed a huge peak in on-demand services emerging and identified a gap in the Australian market. We noticed that thepeople around us using food delivery and taxi services, were also finding it difficult to reserve the time to pick up or drop off their suits and shirts. After having a chat with our own dry cleaners we discovered they were only running at 60% to 70% capacity, so we saw an opportunity to bridge a gap and build something that would benefit the public and also lend a helping hand to small business owners.

Whos the target audience here?
Time poor people who are in need to an effective, fast and reliable laundry delivery service. Were based out of the Melbourne CBD so our initialfocus is on corporate workers who need their suits turned over quickly.
