VClean is the UK's largest wholly eco friendly dry cleaning firm, currently serving c300 London buildings each week with their collection/delivery service. With the launch of their revolutionary VDrop vending machines, £3/item price and a contract with TfL to place more VDrops, they are primed for rapid growth.
VClean is revolutionising the dry cleaning industry by offering 3 very clear differences between itself and the competition.
1) It's committed to doing away with the eco-disastrous solvents used by most cleaners, and use the latest wet clean technology to offer solvent-free dry cleaning.
2) It's developed the VDrop vending machine, allowing customers to drop off and collect their cleaning from the most convenient locations, such as Tube stations, rail stations, their corporate offices, gyms, etc. With PwC's head office already live, as well as Epping Tube station, and a variety of other opportunities with rail networks, corporates, and others in discussion, the VDrop allows customers 24/7/365 convenience.
3) VClean is committed to driving down the industry pricing. Most cleaners offer a suit clean between £12 and £20, so the £6 that it charges makes VClean highly competitive.
The revolutionary nature of the business has brought considerable interest from the media, with coverage in many national newspapers, BBC Online, BBC Radio and on other tech and eco websites, as well as a feature on Channel 5's The Gadget Show. VClean now wants to cash in on this exposure by placing many more VDrops as soon as possible, which is what the money raised will mostly be spent on. As a guide, with £1m of investment, we aim to add 10 new sites, cleaning c2,500+ items a day
