One Load at a Time: Chet Selis ’18
Chet Selis ’18 never imagined himself in the laundry trade. When he graduated from Puget Sound with a business degree, he was on the hunt for a position at an up-and-coming company, a job that would be “flexible, yet challenging.” That’s just what he found when he stumbled upon a job listing for Loopie, a Seattle-based peer-to-peer laundry service app that allows users to get their laundry picked up, washed, folded, dried, and returned within 24 hours.
At the time, Loopie had exactly one employee: CEO John Vincent Lee. Selis and Lee launched the business together in July 2018, and the team has since grown to include 12 employees. Besides Selis, team members Jack Burns ’18, Ian White ’18, and Luke Murdock ’20 are Loggers; additionally, three students from Professor Lynnette Claire’s entrepreneurship course recently worked with Loopie as part of the class.
