Handy, Home Cleaning Services Growing in Popularity
Handy, a start-up home cleaning service, is growing in business and has raised $50 million in just November of 2015. The business started out as Handybook and was the brain child of Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua. Hanrahan thought up the idea for Handy while renovating apartment complexes in Budapest. He continually had problems finding reliable people for jobs. Handy was born out of that need to know who was reliable and who wasn’t.
Handy allows customers to book services as well as pay and leave a tip through the app. They offer a money back guarantee and will have another professional come out if the customer is not satisfied with the work of the first. Handy has been successful at developing a customer base. Hanrahan stated in a recent interview that 80 percent of bookings are from repeat customers. The company operates in major United States cities from coast to coast as well as Toronto and Vancouver, Canada and London, England.
