Founded in 2010 in a West Philadelphia laundromat with little more than a single bike and a single trailer, Wash Cycle Laundry has now grown to have about 50 employees operating seven laundry facilities in three markets and a fleet of cargo trikes delivering thousands of pounds of cargo each day throughout Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and Austin. Our team is a diverse mix of laundry and healthcare industry veterans, former non-profit professionals seeking a better way to make a difference, and true believers in human-powered transport. Wash Cycle combines the best of these worlds to make an impact on our employees, our cities, and our environment.
