About CleanCloud

CleanCloud, headquartered in London, is the leading Point of Sales software, apps and online ordering service used by dry cleaners & laundry services worldwide.

They are already the world’s leading cloud–based point-of-sale software solution (SaaS) for dry cleaners and were nominated in the Best SaaS Product for Small Business category for The SaaS Awards 2019.

The London-based company, founded in 2014 by serial entrepreneurs John Buni and David Griffith-Jones, provides dry cleaners with the digital infrastructure needed to streamline their processes, to more effectively manage their sales, and ultimately to better service their customers.

Its users are predominantly small, independent and family-run businesses. The tools and online reach provided by CleanCloud allow smaller operators to compete with the industry giants, including well-funded on-demand disruptors with significant marketing budgets and, often, highly developed infrastructure.

What Does CleanCloud Have To Say?

When we took on external investment from a large US company, the team at CB Reid were on hand to work with us and our legal advisors to help facilitate the deal. Everything was delivered smoothly and with the on-hand expertise that you would normally only expect from larger London firms. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them
