Irish tech start-up launches Ireland’s first dry cleaning app

Irish start-up, Laundrie, has launched Ireland’s first dry cleaning on-demand app, launching in Dublin and rolling out nationwide in 2016. The smart-phone based service will allow Dubliner’s to get their suits cleaned and clothing pressed with just a few clicks on the Laundrie app. This innovative and convenient service will see Laundrie pick up and deliver items at the location specified by the customer seven days a week at the time and date of their choosing. 

Laundrie was developed by a young Irish entrepreneur, Evan Gray, who spotted an opportunity in market for such a convenient service. People’s lives are becoming ever-increasingly busy and therefore they are looking for ways to save time and hassle. Consumer demand encourages services to evolve and adapt to shopper’s needs and these insights brought around the development of the unique service of Laundrie.

This premium dry cleaning service collects and delivers directly to the customer within a 48 hour turn around time. Laundrie provides free delivery and collection for all orders over €20. Launching initially in Dublin, with plans to expand nationwide in the coming months, this is a start-up business that is Irish owned and run.

Speaking about the launch of Laundrie, founder, Evan Gray, said:“Following a number of years working in the white-collar industry, I saw a gap in the market for a more convenient way to service the cleaning needs of wearing a suit 5 days a week. This app allows busy consumers to get their clothes cleaned in an affordable, efficient and convenient way.”

Evan continued: “Laundrie is basically like Hailo for your laundry requirements. Once you’ve downloaded the Laundrie app, simply select the items that require cleaning for from a pre-defined drop-down selection and Laundrie will come and collect them from you.”

The app is free to download and is now available on AppStore.
