How to disrupt an entire sector, with Arunabh Sinha of UClean
Play • 24 mins

How do you know that someone is an entrepreneurial tour de force? When during an extremely rare day off — and national holiday — they’ll even carve out some time to join you on the podcast to discuss franchising. So massive props to Arunabh Sinha, who joined us for this eye-opening conversation during some precious downtime on India Independence Day.

And to say that Arunabh is a busy franchisor is a bit of an understatement. Since co-founding ‘offline-first’ laundry cleaning franchise UClean three years ago, he’s seen it grow its portfolio to 160-odd units based all over India and beyond. However, it hasn’t always been plain sailing for the franchise, and persuading potential early investors to buy into the UClean idea just didn’t quite wash at first. In order for his concept to survive, Arunabh had to change tact.

In this podcast, he not only discusses that crucial switchover in strategy, but he also delves into what costly mistakes were made, unveils the franchise’s next international markets, finding business inspiration in Southeast Asia and applying it to India, and diversifying the UClean concept through working with world-renowned franchise, ChemDry.
