About Arik Levy
What started out as a small locker-based delivery service, Laundry Locker® has exponentially grown to support over 900 buildings with over 50 public locations and 6 Laundry Locker® retail stores throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Laundry Locker® is San Francisco’s largest dry cleaner, has been voted 4 years in a row as the “Best Dry Cleaner in San Francisco” by SF Weekly Readers and was recently acquired by Mulberrys Garment Care.
In 2013, Levy released the Drop Locker® software platform, making Laundry Locker’s® innovative software platform available to small business owners and entrepreneurs across the globe. By licensing the Drop Locker® platform, Drop Locker® partners can build a 24-hour locker delivery business and operate as their own branded company. Drop Locker® is the software behind locker-based dry-cleaning networks in over 15 countries.
Levy and his team’s latest expansion is through Luxer One® package lockers; a locker solution for package delivery in apartment buildings, retail locations, office buildings and universities. Luxer One® provides unprecedented convenience, reliability, speed and cost savings for carriers, residents and property staff by utilizing lockers for package delivery. Lockers are located in thousands of apartment buildings and retail locations with millions of packages delivered every month. Luxer One was acquired in 2018 and is now a wholly owned subsidiary or ASSA ABLOY, Inc.
