DaVee Mobile Shoe Clinic

By: Vuyokazi Vika



DaVee’s Mobile Shoe Clinic is a shoe laundry business that washes footwear, spray suede and polish formal shoes. The company started operating on the 14th of December 2017 to date. The business is more than three months old and still running strong.

Currently it’s owned and managed by Vuyani Mahlasela and only has one employee Phakamile Bange. “We work well together as he has been there throughout the process of starting this venture ,as time passes I would like to employ at least two more people by mid-year due to the growth of the business”, says Vuyani.

The company target market is basically everyone who is very busy, lazy to wash and polish his or her footwear and those who have been struggling to wash the dirt on their sneakers.

The fundamental goal for the company is to secure the base of the Eastern Cape as it is still located in Mdantsane but they do pick-up and deliveries around East London and King William’s Town but hoping to branch out to places such as Mthatha, Port Elizabeth, and Queenstown.

Every business has its own way of doing things regardless of its packaging,customer treatment, delivery etc as long as it sells to customers. DaVee’s Mobile Shoe Clinic deals with customer attraction and compares on how other businesses operate in order to improve ‘the shoe should excite us before it excites the recipient’.

“The shoe laundry business did not exist before DaVee’s Mobile Shoe Clinic or rather say it was not known as much as this one does in Eastern Cape or East London to be specific. This type of business is unique and is in demand so I saw an opportunity and took it”, says Vuyani.

It’s been more than 3 months since the establishment of DaVee’s Mobile Shoe Clinic and Vuyani has since gone on interviews with Mdantsane FM, Kumkani FM, TRU FM and UmhloboWenene and featured on the business news in Daily Dispatch.
