Oisin Hanrahan granted an interview to The Next Web at the Web Summit to talk about the rapid growth and almost overnight success of the company he founded, Handy. Handy is an on-demand cleaning and handyman services based out of New York City. Right now, cleaning orders make up about eighty percent of Handy’s total business, and handyman services account for the other twenty percent. Hanrahan is currently examining additional services for Handy to offer to customers and is also considering expanding outside of its current base of operations, New York City. Hanrahan did say, though, that choosing to base Handy out of New York City was the right move to get the company off the ground. In New York City, the demand for the types of services provided by Handy is high, and contractors able to take the assignments are never in short supply.
Rather than focusing on the status of the competition in the market, Hanrahan says Handy has been keen on making customer demands its top priority and continues to find ways to innovate so that is has streamlined ordering processes and communications. Handy is set to continue on its incredible growth path, as it is currently positioned with $50 million to invest in future growth.
