The Washlava Model

Washlava is revolutionizing the $6 Billion laundry industry through app-based technology. An industry that remains mired in the past, lacking efficiencies for users and business managers is primed for a disruption.

Washlava is changing the industry with an entire end-to-end package that differentiates the experience for consumers and deploys a business model that can operate at scale. We have developed a breakthrough software technology platform that solves the structural challenges of the laundromat industry. Our one-of-a-kind application allows consumers to reserve machines and pay using their smartphone. The software improves the consumer experience by reducing time-hassle economics of waiting to do laundry and the age-old process of paying with quarters. The same software reduces the capital costs and eliminates the operating expenses of managers, as well as coin and card payment processing. With a competitive landscape that is characterized by slow moving OEMs, a wide-open brand space for a market leader to emerge, and a working technology platform that optimizes location productivity, Washlava is set to scale.


Our Patent Approved Technology

Our patents describe three main areas focusing on how our machine control system operates – both hardware and software, communication, wireless networking, automation and user interfaces. Our main objective behind patent protection was to discourage other startups, and no competitive system has emerged – Washlava remains the first mover. This protection allows Washlava, and only Washlava, to enable a paradigm shift by applying IoT principles to shared laundry facilities. 


Proven Market Results

One in six, or 19 million, U.S. households do not have washers or dryers in their homes. Approximately 40 million renters, students, and urban dwellers comprise the bulk of these households. Washlava focuses in two areas of market growth: higher education and shared laundry centers. Washlava has proven our concept, gone to market and is currently expanding in markets and universities.
