Zipjet acquires London competitor
The London-based laundry cleaning and delivery startup Zipjet acquired Asteria Cleaners, one of its main competitors Tuesday. Zipjet, which is backed by Rocket Internet, is active in Berlin, London and Paris, but business has not taken of yet. A similar US-based competitor, Washio, shut down recently. Unlike Washio and Zipjet, Asteria Cleaners focuses more on B2B clients. Details, such as the selling price, stay undisclosed.
