Commercial Laundry – there’s an app for that. But, that is not always a good thing?
While you might not care who is taxiing you across town, you should care who is doing your laundry. With the rise of middle-man apps that pair you with the closest, cheapest, service provider, you have no idea who is picking up, cleaning, and delivering your commercial laundry.
Here is the rundown:
You’ll want to find a business laundry service that ACTUALLY does your laundry: A simple Google search will reveal app-based middle man companies that shop your laundry out to the nearest provider. These are SOFTWARE companies, NOT laundry professionals! They will cost you twice as much as going directly to the source. As you’d expect they keep the lion’s share of the revenue and leave a small portion to the laundry provider. You know the expression “You get what you pay for”. In this case you are paying a premium for the cheapest provider. When deciding on a business laundry service, be sure to research or ask who is actually doing your laundry.
