Rinse acquires Dryv for its second acquisition of 2020
SAN FRANCISCO - November 17, 2020 - Rinse, the leading national brand in dry cleaning and laundry delivery, announces the acquisition of Dryv, the Chicago-based, on-demand dry cleaning and laundry provider. Dryv is the latest in a series of acquisitions for Rinse that includes OffToYou in 2020, Cleanly’s San Francisco operations in 2019, and Washio in 2016. The acquisition of Dryv marks a significant milestone for Rinse not only in the Chicago market but in its quest for national expansion.
Changing the way people think about clothing care, Rinse offers a simple, consistent, high-quality solution to laundry in seven markets across the United States. The acquisition of Dryv will accelerate Rinse’s capabilities in Chicago and further solidifies Rinse as the market leader and the fastest growing clothing care provider in the Chicago market.
“We’re thrilled to expand Rinse’s presence and capabilities in Chicago with the acquisition of Dryv,” stated Ajay Prakash, CEO of Rinse. “Chicago is a great market and we’re seeing a lot of positive momentum here with demand back up to pre-COVID levels. The timing of this acquisition couldn’t have been better.”
With Rinse, former Dryv customers will now have expanded services beyond Dry Cleaning and Wash & Fold, including Hang Dry, repairs, and more. In addition, Rinse will offer Rinse Repeat, its leading laundry delivery subscription service priced by the bag instead of the pound, as well as Rinse for Business, the first Dry Cleaning & Laundry employee benefit that picks up and delivers laundry at home or the office.
Founded in 2013 with the mission to remove friction from the laundry and dry cleaning customer experience, Rinse is on its way to becoming the first national brand in clothing care. Rinse’s unique approach to reducing customer friction while modernizing the laundry and dry cleaning space has been integral not only to the company’s continued success but in the industry’s evolution to meet the demands of today’s customer.
