On-demand service now in 11 U.S. markets, with plans for branch in France

NEW YORK — WashClub, the on-demand laundry and drycleaning service, reports that it had a strong 2016, claiming to have recorded revenue growth of 350% overall. Because WashClub is a privately held company, the information could not be independently verified.

During 2016, WashClub expanded its presence to 11 new markets, including Oklahoma City, Denver, Akron, Lehigh Valley, Bakersfield, Alabama, Tampa Bay, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Oakland and Chicago, bringing its total footprint to 32 cities and 16 states, the company says.

“2016 has been an extraordinary year for WashClub and we are looking forward to continuing our market expansion in 2017, both nationally and globally,” says Rick Rome, president and founder. “Our first international branch will open in France in the upcoming months. We know how dreadful laundry tasks can be and want to provide our services to even more customers across the globe.”

“In an era where on-demand companies are transforming almost every industry, we have found ourselves producing exceptional progress and growth across every sector of our business,” says Henri Alexaline, chief financial officer of WashClub.

WashClub reports it has more than 65,000 customers across the country (an increase of more than 200% from 2015, the company says) and intends to “further accelerate its leadership” in on-demand laundry services to reach more businesses and households in cities around the world.
