Naki Laundry Debuts In Santa Monica With Tech Friendly Laundry Service
In the latest services-meets-smartphone service to launch in the Los Angeles area, a new startup, Naki Laundry, said today that it has launched its service in Santa Monica, letting the tech set use their smartphone or the web to get their laundry cleaned. Naki lets users use the web or an app to request a laundry pickup, and gets your laundry done--clean and folded--either later the same day or the next morning. The tech-friendly service app also includes text and email notifications, and even a monthly subscription option. Naki Laundry's service includes both an iPhone app as well as an Android app, and launched a pilot in Santa Barbara in September. Naki's new coverage area includes Santa Monica, Venice, and Marina Del Rey, and themonthly subscription service will be priced by-the-bag (starting at $19.99). Naki's name comes from the Hebrew for the word "clean". The company was founded by Shai Kedem.
