Mr Jeff, awarded at the Global Franchise Awards 2022
Mr Jeff has received the award for "Best Lifestyle Franchise" at the Global Franchise Awards 2022. The awards were presented by Global Franchise Magazine on Friday, February 25th at a ceremony held in San Diego, California. Mr. Jeff USA CEO, Peter Stern, was there to accept the award.
“We’re excited and honored to have been acknowledged as the ‘Best Lifestyle Franchise,’” said Peter Stern, Managing Director, Mr Jeff USA, who picked up the award. “This award speaks to the global desire for a fast, convenient and reliable laundry service to modernize the tedious task of doing laundry, and for the growing number of existing and aspiring entrepreneurs seeing significant potential with the Mr Jeff brand and industry.”
The Global Franchise Awards seek to highlight the brands that contribute the most to the internationalization of franchises. The winners are chosen by a judging panel made up of association leaders with a global presence and renowned experts in the world of franchising.
When selecting its winners, Global Franchise Magazine takes the following values into account: having the intention of building a global presence; having an excellent relationship between franchisees and the franchisor brand; having contributed to the internationalization of franchises; and having both an innovative marketing plan and promotions plan.
Thanks to our commitment to implementing disinfection policies and our contactless pickup and delivery model, Mr Jeff thrived in 2020 and 2021, while other laundry service providers were hit hard by the pandemic. Between March 2020 and March 2021, our entrepreneurs opened a total of 252 Mr Jeff locations internationally.
Our expansion continues in 2022. Mr Jeff is currently entering the U.S. market with its first location to open in March 2022 in the Miami area.“We saw a trend of ‘covid-preneurs’ seeking to control their own destinies through entrepreneurship across the globe,” said Eloi Gomez, co-founder and CEO. “With Mr Jeff’s introduction into the U.S., we expect further growth into high-densely populated markets by attracting ambitious entrepreneurs looking to leverage a simple business operation with a relevant, tech-based service that makes life easier for consumers.”
Mr Jeff, the laundromat that revolutionized the sector
Mr Jeff was founded in 2015 by three entrepreneurs in Spain, who wanted to make life easier for their community, just like the brand’s namesake Geoffrey – the beloved, witty butler featured on the hit 90’s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The trio built Mr Jeff to bring the convenience of Amazon or Uber Eats to day-to-day services like laundry.
The company's unique model has earned it international recognition, such as the award given by Global Franchise Magazine. Mr Jeff offers a 48-hour home pick-up and delivery service, which can be conveniently managed through the Jeff App. Users can also sign up for the brand's subscription plans, which also guarantee recurring orders for franchisees.
