Laundry, pet care, catering: Fayetteville businesses that come to you – The Fayetteville Observer
Mobile businesses in Fayetteville offer a range of services independent of location, often traveling to clients’ homes or places of work.
State law has prohibited mobile salons; customers cannot yet get haircuts or manicures at home. However , mobile pet groomers, mechanics, veterinarians, caterers and launderers serve the Fayetteville area.
Mobile services can be helpful for the elderly, people with disabilities, and those who would rather spend more time at home and less time running errands.
Here’s a sampling of mobile businesses serving the particular Fayetteville area and the solutions they provide.

Danytza Antinozzi owns Moka In-Home Grooming, a mobile dog salon serving the Fayetteville area for the past 8 years. She offers dog bathing, styling and nail trims.
Antinozzi said many of her clients are retired professionals and veterans who cannot take their dogs out of the home. Many of them have senior dogs that are too fragile for a traditional family pet salon environment, she said. For example , a dog that used to be medicated for salon grooming is perfectly well-behaved without medicine for his at-home grooming appointments, Antinozzi stated.

Denise Baker owns Washing Day, a laundry plus dry-cleaning service with two Fayetteville locations. The 4829 Ramsey St . location offers delivery and drop-off, while the 919 McArthur Road location offers drop-off only.
Baker said her customers, who are mostly married women professionals with children, tell her the service is a “marriage saver” or a “marriage enhancer. ” Many of them have busy lives, and taking laundry off their to-do list gives them more time to spend with their families, Baker mentioned.
Businesses like short-term housing rentals, churches, caterers and restaurants use Laundry Day’s solutions, too, she said.
The process is simple — customers can use the Laundry Day, Inc. cell phone app to schedule a pickup and select detergent preferences. A driver picks up the washing and brings it to the facility, where it is sorted by lights and darks, washed, dried, folded and packaged. It is dropped away at the customer’s doorstep the next day for $1. 85 per pound, or the same day for $2. 50 for each pound. The delivery fee is $5 and the minimum order is $25.
Call 910-229-2551 for the Ramsey St . area, or 910-568-5849 for the McArthur Road location or go to laundrydayinc. apresentando.
