Wellesley brothers Tyler and Brandon Capecci, the former a junior at Wellesley High and the latter a 2011 grad who has since worked as a software engineer, have started a new business called ChoreDash that will handle your dry-cleaning pickup/dropoff ($200 per month) and take your garbage/recycling to the Wellesley RDF ($125 per month).
Tyler is an entrepreneurial-minded young man, having started the WHS Business Club and being involved in several businesses, including those focused on website design and fashion. Tyler plans to attend Babson College, where this past summer he took a 6-week course in entrepreneurship.
“We are trying to focus more on personal errands – a white glove on-demand service that adjusts to the needs of the town. Currently we are building out dry-cleaning and garbage pickup to bootstrap the startup, but the intention is that people will soon be able to get whatever errand they need done,” Tyler says.
ChoreDash is hiring drivers now.
ChoreDash will compete with the likes of Roy’s (which focuses on recycling) and TaskRabbit.
$200 to pickup dry cleaning for a month? $125 to go to the dump?
Only in Wellesley…
I’m no business-school wannabe but Roy’s charges $65 a month to pick up trash and recycling weekly….from a garage. And for $200, Zoots will dry clean (using environmentally friendly methods) well over a month’s worth of clothes with twice weekly pick up and drop off. I can’t figure out how the ChoreDash math makes sense.

I scheduled last week and all went terrific. The garbage is gone and my recycling bins back in place. My landlord usually does this for free, but he was sidelined due to a fall a few weeks ago. I was reluctant, but as they are now only slightly more then other local proprietors of similar services, I figured I would give them a try. The differentiator for me was employment of a local HS students.
