Many people have dreamed about automatics car washing centres, but the Boca Raton, Florida based startup has developed a car washing app called Washe’. It has now raised $3.5 million in seed funding to continue to grow its business, which involves a mobile app that consumers use to connect with Washé’s network of around 1,000 licensed and insured car washing professionals.
Washé has carried out almost 100,000 car washes to date in the South Florida market. It operates in parts of Florida, Southern California, and more recently, Georgia and New Jersey and is seeing a rapid growth in its business.
The app is now available on iOS and Android. Users can download the app and use the services by creating a profile and after that they must choose an appropriate package to continue the process .Once the customer taps the ‘Wash Me Now!’ button, a mobile washer is deployed to the customer’s location, like their home or office. Currently, there are packages which start from $30 to $ 120.
Furthermore, users can set their own hours and are paid through the app, including tips. The payment process is very simple as payments are automatically deposited to their bank account. Additionally, Washérs will get a few percentage of the transaction with the variance depending on things like package or location.
“What is key is that you have to balance the supply and demand. So you have to really understand how to how to engage your supply channels…our supply is equally as important to us as our customers,” says Washè CEO Matt Stadtmauer.
