“With our technology and process interventions, we simplified the onboarding and training processes for our partners. We are also introducing women into the wash segment across business parks. We believe this will untap the largely blue-collar workforce segment,” Rahul Marwar, Co-founder & Director of Sales, honc said.

The company enabled its partners to increase their monthly income by 100% in the last six months. Furthermore, honc’s eco-friendly washes have helped save nearly 1,50,000 liters of water every month across gated communities.

The existing options are broken, leaving car owners dissatisfied with bitter experiences. With its tech-first approach, honc made it efficient and simplified the whole process of keeping our cars clean. Car wash is the everyday touchpoint in the car owner’s mind, we believe honc is well poised to play a bigger role in scaling to other services as well.”

The past year steered in a new normal, changing people’s perspective of a car wash at the doorstep.
