Started from a simple dream of bringing advanced comfort in care of the Land of the Rising Sun: Japan. Influenced by their culture and principles of quality and service inspired by our commitment in providing unparalleled customer satisfaction to the Filipino People.
Founded by Elcid B. Lao in 2018 together with his business partners – Jericho B. Montano (a Travel and Hospitality Specialist), Rhodessa M. Belen and Husband Jason M. Belen (both IT Specialist) with our combined knowledge and skills, we established in October 2018 the Philippines’ First Upscale Laundromat System currently having 2 Branches christened as THE LAUNDRAFÉ&Co. Amsterdam and THE LAUNDRAFÉ&Co. London. A year after, we expanded our dreams of making a stand-alone brand of Artisan Café and named it – The Royal Coffee & Tea Co. Inc.
With the support of our closest friends, Charlie So, Viel Merck Carillo and J.K. Ong. To further improve our quality service, we expanded and ventured to Smart Technology and again established our 3rd Business with the help of our Chinese brother, Jingwu Yan, and called it LAUNDRAFÉBox Corp. bearing the very principles of our parent company, LAUNDRAFÉ&Co. We introduced then the country’s first Smart Locker System providing an all-in-one service solution from laundry, parcel, storage, dropbox, payment, e-commerce and e-pharmacy. We then ventured to professional cleaning service and introduced Dr. P Professional Service, inspired by our beloved household member who is considered a one-of-a-kind professional in cleaning & repair service.

“Everyone has a dream. Everyone has a goal. However, not everyone has the courage to take the first step in turning those fantasies into reality. I’m very blessed to have encountered these fascinating individuals during the course of my life.
People who were able to motivate me when I felt disheartened, people who gave me courage when I have doubts. People who knew when to pull and when to push. People who I love.
With the support of our loved ones and the guidance of our mentors, we are happy to present to the world our dream and the future of the industry: the first full setup Laundromat and Cafe in the Philippines, LAUNDRAFÉ&Co.”
