I’m Paulo Cruz from Manila, Philippines. I’m married and have 2 beautiful daughters. I currently have 1 laundry plant. I started though with 1 laundry shop (that’s what we normally call it here in the Philippines), back in 2013. It was just a 100 sq ft neighborhood laundromat that offers full service (wash, dry, fold). I only had a pair of Speed Queen machines to start off. The rise of Coin ops only started around 2015 in the Philippines so the full service shops dominated the local laundry scene.
I eventually expanded to my 2nd branch in a year but my turning point was on my 3rd year when I started to shift towards the Business to Business model (B2B). That’s where I am now.
I do a bit of consulting and coaching on laundry. I also founded a small laundry society where we support each member to further develop their laundry expertise and we aim to standardize processes for the betterment of the customers.
