Our story

30 years ago, in a land close by...

Rinse started serving customers in 2013, but it was actually 30 years ago when the story really started.

James Joun, Rinse’s Co-founder & COO, started spending time at his parents’ dry cleaning storefront in South San Francisco.

His Mom and Dad taught him to take pride in his work, to never cut corners, and to obsess over quality.

Two friends had an idea

In 2013, James and his close friend, Ajay Prakash, Rinse’s Co-founder & CEO, started discussing changing the way both consumers and cleaners think about clothing care.

Rinse’s CTO, Sam Cheng, joined the party, and Rinse made its service available in San Francisco later that year.

We’re in it for you

At Rinse, we work to provide one simple, consistent, high-quality solution to take care of everything in your closet.

We remember the lessons that James’ parents taught him about hard work and quality.

We instill those values into everything we do at Rinse – every customer, every order, every day.
