Services Startup ‘Housejoy’ Sees Growth In Business, On Track To Clock Rs 150 Cr GMV In FY21
Housejoy, a tech-driven construction, renovation, interiors & home maintenance company, has seen strong growth in its business.
Mostly driven by verticals like construction and beauty, Housejoy is on track to close the financial year with Rs 150 crore in GMV (Gross merchandise value), a top company official said.
Talking to PTI, Sanchit Gaurav (Housejoy founder and CEO) said the company has crossed pre-COVID numbers by a significant leap in certain categories, like home cleaning and virus fumigation. And during the recently concluded festive season, the demand in segments like beauty services increased.
Sanchit Gaurav said,
“We have been growing at 20% month-on-month profitably and have recovered to pre-COVID numbers overall post the lockdown. We have expanded to 10 new cities for our on-demand and construction business.”
Gaurav said the construction segment is growing 20% month-on-month post lockdown. And in the on-demand maintenance services segment, the demand is growing slowly but sustainably.
As per Sanchit Gaurav, home cleaning and virus fumigation have clocked the fastest growth post lockdown, while the beauty segment has achieved 80% of pre-COVID numbers mainly driven by festive demand.
Talking about proper sanitation measures taken by the company, Gaurav said,
“We have mandated our service providers to use masks, gloves, and sanitisers while rendering services. We ensure that our service providers undergo daily temperature checks and regular health checkups. Our service providers are trained on WHO-recommended hygiene protocols, and are encouraged to follow them while providing services.”
