Hampr Brings On-Demand Laundry to The Woodlands
THE WOODLANDS, TX — hampr, a free app for wash-and-fold laundry services, announced today that they are expanding to The Woodlands area after launching in Louisiana in early 2020. The app is available on both Android and iOS devices and is currently live in The Woodlands.
hampr is an on-demand platform where users can schedule wash-and-fold laundry services via the mobile app. The customers’ laundry is picked up, washed, folded and delivered back to them by local “washrs”—an army of stay-at-home parents, retirees or any individuals interested in earning additional, supplemental income.
Founded by working mother of two, Laurel Hess, hampr was created with the aim to help simplify users’ lives.
“I had gotten home from a business trip and was surrounded by laundry. It was the weekend and my sons had birthday parties and t-ball opening day - I didn’t know how I was going to get it all done,” said Hess. “If we can get our groceries and food from our favorite restaurants delivered—why can’t we get laundry done with the click of a button?”
hampr launched in south Louisiana at the start of the new year and, due to consumer demand, is now expanding into the Woodlands area where it will add several new jobs to the area.
“We are excited to start recruiting washrs in The Woodlands area,” said Hess. “This opportunity provides people with a flexible way to earn supplemental income for their families.”
To utilize the service, users purchase a $39 annual membership which includes four special hampr-branded laundry hampers in the first year. The hamprs are designed to hold one load of laundry, allowing the app to charge a flat-rate of $12 per hampr rather than per-pound which is often the case with most laundry services.
Users have the option to include their own detergent pods in their hamprs or they can opt for hampr’s default detergent, Dropps - a scent-free, dye-free eco-friendly detergent.
The hampr app is currently available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Those interested in being washrs can apply at https://www.tryhampr.com/signup/.
