EAST GREENWICH, R.I. — Tech-enabled laundry pickup and delivery service HappyNest reports that it is expanding its commercial laundry services, most recently in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Colorado. More additions are planned in the coming months.
The service is now offering a per-bag pricing model exclusively for commercial accounts, and it has hired Joseph Gaglione as business development associate focused exclusively on supporting HappyNest’s commercial business.
“Taking my business into the commercial market has done more than just increase revenue,” says Bryan Neal, who owns Coastal Virginia Laundry, a laundromat in Chesapeake, and is a HappyNest partner. “It allows us to forecast revenue streams because commercial accounts tend to be predictable and repeatable with their need for laundry services.”
HappyNest says commercial businesses like short-term rentals, Airbnbs, massage therapists, cryotherapy and fitness centers can benefit from its next-day services to help busy employees shift their responsibilities to other tasks.
“We have noticed our laundry operation is much more organized with HappyNest,” says Greer Monahan, operations manager of Cottages on the Key in Sarasota, Florida. “Personally, for our vacation rental company, it limits the excess communication, as it’s all through HappyNest. HappyNest has all the door codes, all the pickup days, and all the specifics in the app. It’s extremely organized and has only made our daily operation more efficient.”
“The power of HappyNest’s national network has led to some exciting opportunities with national brands,” says John MacKrell, CEO and founder of HappyNest.
It’s now available in 34 states and Washington, D.C., attracting laundromats across the country desiring to increase sales through pickup and delivery and decrease excess capacity during the slow midweek, he adds.
