Opening up the program today was Ryan Foster and Rick Rome of Wash Club. Rick Rome founded this company after experiencing poor quality dry cleaning service from servicers in the New York area and seeing the need for reliable On-Demand laundry service. Wash Club, via an app on your phone, gives the consumer on-demand laundry and dry cleaning service. You can arrange for pickups and drop-offs to fit your schedule and all drivers and staff are w-2 employees. You can track the drivers location on your phone sort of like Uber and Jamie makes note of the similarities between the Uber/Lyft service for vehicles and how Wash Club is comparable to that for laundry service. Ryan owns the license in the Tampa Bay area and talks about the company’s unique approach to laundry services. Ryan has owned laundromats and been in the business for several years and jumped at the opportunity to add Wash Club to his laundry business after a discussion with the Founder Ryan last December. You can find the app available on your smart phone, bot the iOS and Android operating systems, just look up Wash Club to get started and learn more at www.washclubtb.com!
