Founder & CEO, UClean
Arunabh is the Founder of UClean, which is India's largest and fastest growing, franchise based Laundry Chain with 230+ franchises across 50+ cities of India in about 3 years. An IIT Bombay graduate, Arunabh carries solid amount of experience in the franchising and startup space and is considered a scale-up specialist. Having seen the explosion of laundromats culture in South East Asia, Arunabh got inspired and amazed by the tremendous opportunity presented by the huge but largely unorganised laundry segment. This inspiration led him to start UClean as India's first organised laundry chain based on the franchise format. In due course, Arunabh has also become cognisant of the equally interesting opportunity presented by the residential home cleaning and home maintenance sector and has partnered with global leader Chem Dry to introduce Chem Dry's patented services in India. With an objective to clean every inch of space inside a household, Arunabh is now working towards building UClean group as India's first one-stop-shop for all residential cleaning requirements
