Starchup & ZIPS Cleaners Partnership Announcement Seems Promising

Starchup and ZIPS Cleaners on June 22, 2022 announced that ZIPS will be utilizing Starchup’s software platform and API tools to launch a new mobile app for customers using Home Delivery, Locker Drop-off and Pickup, and EZ® DropSM at ZIPS stores.

ZIPS will integrate Starchup’s industry-leading locker and home delivery tools into its current store software, giving ZIPS the ability to offer a mobile ordering app, advanced text messaging functionality, and franchise-focused management tools to improve the garment care experience for consumers and franchisees.

ZIPS is a leader in the garment care industry. With nearly 70 open locations throughout the USA. The company provides cleaning services at low prices, as well as Wash N Fold laundry, pressed laundry, alterations and cleaning of comforters and other household items. ZIPS offers franchisees a scalable and dependable technology-focused model for growth. Conveniences such as home pickup and delivery and secure locker systems enable ZIPS to meet consumers where they are – in-store, in the lobbies of apartment and office buildings, at their front door and at a host of additional convenient locations. Now with the addition of its new mobile app, ZIPS also can connect with customers on their mobile devices, giving them convenience and control over the process of getting their items to and back from their favourite ZIPS location.

“Starchup’s mission is to help dry cleaners and laundromats provide a better customer experience through technology,” said Nick Chapleau, Starchup CEO. “Tools like advanced SMS, web and mobile apps, and smart routing technology help operators increase customer acquisition and satisfaction and improve the operational efficiency of home and locker-based delivery. Our work with the ZIPS team has revealed how passionate they are about equipping their franchisees for success and we are excited to support them in that mission.”
