EAST GREENWICH, R.I. — Tech-enabled laundry pickup and delivery service HappyNest continues to expand with the additions of several locations throughout the United States, the company reports.
HappyNest has partnered with the following laundry owners in the last two months to add residential pickup and delivery service to their walk-in business:
Atukwe Newell and his family own and operate two Bubbleland locations in Chicago and own the trademark and rights to the Bubbleland name.
“We have provided pickup and drop-off service to customers for years, and by that I mean we literally pick people up with their laundry and bring them to our Laundromat to do their laundry and we bring them home, but we knew there was another type of customer that we weren’t servicing,” says Newell.
Mykal Tairu, owner of Midtown Laundry Service in Daytona Beach, Florida, has been in the laundry industry for four years, operating a small commercial space for drop-off service and providing commercial pickup and delivery to the local market.
“I have had success in the commercial laundry delivery space since I started and planned on expanding into the residential market when the time was right. Fortunately, the time is now and HappyNest helped me realize that,” says Tairu.
Luke Bland has worked in the laundry industry for seven years and owns two Laundry Luke’s locations in the St. Louis suburbs of St Peters and Bridgeton, Missouri.
“I recently launched a drop-off service in my St. Pete’s store and had plans to start a delivery service but wasn’t confident in the consumer demand until I heard about what HappyNest has done so far in the area,” says Bland. “When I heard the number of people that had already signed up for the service and everything the HappyNest team provides, I knew I had to get on board.”
Joe Jurevicius, former NFL wide receiver, has joined forces with HappyNest to provide a wash-and-fold service with delivery in Cleveland.
Jurevicius played 11 years in the NFL, winning Super Bowl XXXVII with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After retiring from football following the 2007 season, he embarked on a career in the laundry business. Jurevicius and his business team now own and operate two stores under the Spins Quick ’N Fresh banner, two more under 4th Quarter Laundry, and a commercial laundry division called CLEan.
“Our commercial business has been very successful since starting the service a few years ago,” Jurevicius says. “After hearing about HappyNest, I knew that it would be something we’d do really well with and it was worth looking into.”
HappyNest is intent on signing the best production partners in each region as the brand continues to grow throughout the U.S., according to founder John MacKrell.
