Dladla, who was born in Umlazi, Durban, said most people could only wash their cars on weekends and this can take hours of waiting at the township car washes.
He said the high pace of modern lifestyle did not allow for long periods of waiting for a service. He said people no longer have that kind of patience, and that they seek instant gratification.
Dladla graduated in 2011 with a degree in computer engineering from University of KwaZulu-Natal. He said he developed a fascination for apps and started to research on how to create one.
"It took me a year to finalise my first version. I then started to buy equipment, piece by piece, to start my business."
Dladla said he spent approximately R160000 to acquire operational items such as a generator, tank, pressure washer and a bakkie to start his car wash.
He launched the first version of the app in 2016, serving mostly clients in Midrand, Gauteng. It was a hit as within three months he had 140 registered users, who included TV and radio personality Pabi Moloi.
