FlyCleaners, the on-demand laundry and dry-cleaning app, announced today that it raised $2-million in seed funding from a group of private investors and Zelkova Ventures. The company also announced the launch of a private beta for the mobile app for Android and iOS, exclusively servicing the North Brooklyn area.
With the FlyCleaners app, users can schedule pickup and delivery of their dry-cleaning and laundry on-demand—usually with under an hours notice, anytime between 6 a.m. and midnight, 7 days a week. The app offers competitive pricing and also tracks cleaning preferences and the status of garments throughout the process, making the service both convenient and transparent.
“We have taken technology commonly used for high-tech enterprises and applied it to the laundry and dry cleaning industry,” said David Salama, CEO of FlyCleaners. “The industry currently is staid and old fashioned. We’ve created an app and back-end platform that creates operational efficiencies allowing us to pass on savings of time and money to our clients.”
Jay Levy, from Zelkova Ventures, agreed. “Our introduction to the FlyCleaners technology was extremely compelling and we are excited by the unique vision for the dry cleaning industry that is championed by the passionate management team at FlyCleaners. We whole-heartedly believe in what they are trying to achieve.”
Seth Berkowitz, who is the co-founder of FlyCleaners, is also the founder and CEO of Insomnia Cookies, a late night cookie delivery business, which currently operates in over 40 locations. “I learned from my experience at Insomnia that people want it all—quality, convenience, and affordable products delivered right to their door. In building FlyCleaners, we’ve centered everything around creating a stellar user experience at a competitive price.
FlyCleaners’ private beta of their mobile app is available for Android and iOS users in the North Brooklyn area.
