- Kevin Dladla has been pursuing his long-term dream of developing an application that will change the way we think about car washes for some time now
- After spending a lot of time and money on the development of his app and after receiving requests to better his first version, he finally quit his job at SAB
- While there is still a long road ahead, things look promising for this local entrepreneur and app developer as he gains more clients
Kevin Dladla's car wash app, Mowash, allows clients to request a car wash at any time, anywhere. This means that clients can go do grocery shopping, watch a movie or take their dog to the park while their car is being washed.
Kevin got the idea for a new car wash app while talking to his brother. He felt that washing you car was an inconvenience. "I could go three to four months without washing my car because of my busy lifestyle," he said to Sowetan Live.
The former Durbanite studied computer engineering before starting work at SAB. He has since furthered his knowledge on the subject of apps. He also reported to Sowetan Live that he had spent about R160,000 on starting his business.
With Pabi Moloi on his client list, he is encouraging more people to download the app. This helps grow his business and, as Briefly.co.za has gathered, will help him get more sponsors.
South Africa has a lot of potential for small business owners and inventors. With the support of the community, new innovations such as Mowash can succeed.
