Spanish startup Jeff, which also operates in the Philippines, is looking at opening 10 more laundry hubs this year. The optimism stems from favorable reception not only from customers but also from partner entrepreneurs.
“We feel very confident about the rest of 2022 and we are already helping our partner entrepreneurs to find the best locations and build their shops as soon as possible,” said Eloi Gomez, founder of Jeff. “There is great engagement with our network and we work together on a daily basis in order to make sure that we deliver the best service to our customers.”
At present, Jeff has 37 laundry hubs in the Philippines. Last year, it opened 18.

“We provide all the necessary support to local franchisees,” Gomez said. “Undoubtedly, the omnichannel experience that we offer to our customers is our main strength. In addition to this, the commitment of the network of partners to deliver good service that positively affects retention and the number of sales is crucial. Our team works closely with them to make sure that they are constantly improving their performance.”
Founded in 2015 under the name of Mr Jeff, Jeff is a Spanish technology company with an international presence that has managed to become the first omnichannel ecosystem of day-to-day services. Jeff makes its own “Business in a Box” system available to entrepreneurs, with comprehensive solutions and unique technology to help establish their businesses under the brand’s expertise. Today, Jeff is present in 40 countries in the US, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia.
“Entrepreneurs who want to start a business with Jeff can take advantage of a model with everything they need to operate from day one,” Gomez said. “This is what we call ‘Business in a Box’ that includes international branding and promotional materials, training, industry knowledge, innovative business plans, marketing playbook, and access to Jeff Academy, an online learning platform available to franchisees.”
Jeff has three patented technology products: Jeff app for customers to schedule services, Jeff Suite, a unique management software designed to facilitate financial, technical, marketing and management needs, and the Jeff Driver app to manage all delivery needs. A significant development recently was the launch of new Jeff verticals — Jeff Works, Coffee Jeff, Jeff Capital, and Jeff Real Estate, signaling an expansion into other industries.
“We are a technology company and as such, we use AI and Data through our Jeff Suite software to help entrepreneurs in their day-to-day business,” Jeff said. “This, added to a global multidisciplinary team has allowed us to have a presence in 40 countries plus recent openings in places like NY and Miami, Mykonos, UK or Cyprus.”
The company also signed a multi-unit contract in Switzerland that will allow them to open 46 stores in the next five years.
