Laundry Service For The City Dweller

National Tech
Placeholder brought its dry cleaning service to its first East coast city this week: DC. The Santa Monica, Calif., startup’s mobile app lets users order pick up and delivery of laundry for dry cleaning and wash and fold services, all within 24 hours. We snapped Juan Dulanto, who launched the company with Jordan Metzner, at a DC-area laundromat this week. The company, which has raised $2.75M in VC from some DC investors, has hired a team of DC “ninjas” to handle deliveries. The model is to partner with large dry cleaners, pay them wholesale fees, and then charge the user a retail rate. (Combined with Seamless, we're having a hard time finding a reason to go outside. Any suggestions?)
