Homejoy sets up in England with new Fitzrovia offices in London


San Francisco-based Homejoy has revealed that it’s expanded its operations with the opening of offices in London.

The company, whose service enables people to book an affordable home cleaning appointment online or by phone, has taken on space at 33-34 Alfred Place, Fitzrovia.

Comprised of 2,500 sq ft of space, the office will initially house ten members of staff. However, Homejoy, which recently received $38 million worth of investment from Google Ventures and other venture capitalists, has ambition to expand that figure to 20 members of staff.

Homejoy was founded just two years ago in 2012 by Adora and Aaron Cheung and currently has 120 employees.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard earlier this month (April), when the company announced it was bringing its service to the UK, Adora Cheung, said: “London to us represents a big market. Our biggest market in the US is New York and we think it’s very comparable to that – the amount of customers here, the amount of cleaners, tech saviness, stuff like that.”

Miss Cheung went on to state: “One thing that’s attractive about London is the huge pool of tech talent. I know this city is just on the cusp of becoming a great centre for entrepreneurs. We’re really excited to be a part of that.”
