UClean, the rapidly growing laundry and dry-cleaning chain in India has announced its plan to further consolidate its position as the largest chain in the country with 1500 UClean Laundromat stores by 2025.
The company has achieved remarkable success since its inception and it currently has 323 franchise stores in 93 cities, with an annual gross merchandise value (GMV) of more than 100 crore.
“The company's unique hyperlocal model ensures that customers are within a 2–3 km radius of their nearest UClean store. "We at UClean are committed to empowering micro-entrepreneurs by providing them with the necessary training and support to start their own UClean store. Our goal is to make them discoverable to customers in their local communities. It's heartening to see UClean franchises in various parts of the country, including small towns and villages like Ziro, Vidisha, Nirjuli, Kokrajhar, Dhuliajan, Bettiah, Siwan, Leh, Kargil, and Bidar. We are proud to have enabled, empowered, and equipped them for success in their neighborhoods," said Arunabh Sinha, Founder of UClean.
UClean is set to expand its services beyond India to the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region and Southeast Asia in 2023. To achieve this goal, the company is making significant investments in technology and digitization of the brand. UClean provides door-step laundry services, where customers can place their orders using a smartphone app, via the UClean call center number, or through the UClean WhatsApp bot. Users of UClean can also do their laundry at select stores in a DIY (Do It Yourself) format.
Arunabh said, “We are excited about our expansion plans and our commitment to delivering high-quality laundry services that prioritize hygiene and the environment. We are investing in technology and digitization to bring our services to customers across India, the MENA region, and SouthEast Asia."
The laundry and dry-cleaning chain in India also seeks to expand to the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region and SouthEast Asia by the end of 2023 and has a goal of having 1500 centers in India by 2025. To serve the MENA region, significant investments are being made in technology and digitization of the brand. Additionally, UClean is presently concentrating on D2C services but will shortly begin offering D2C cleaning supplies. By 2025, they hope to have a GMV of 500 crore+.
