Regis operates several haircare salons throughout the U.S. This includes Supercuts, SmartStyle, Cost Cutters, Roosters, and First Choice Haircutters. Regis currently operates more than 5,000 of these locations.
So what does the deal with Zenoti cover? Zenoti is bringing its technology platform and support to Regis locations. This will allow it to upgrade Regis with a modern, digital experience that should increase engagement with its more than 3 million customers a month.
To go along with this, Zenoti is acquiring the Regis’ Opensalon Pro platform. That will see it onboarding all of the locations that make use of the service onto its own platform.
Sudheer Koneru, co-founder and CEO of Zetoni, said this about the deal with Regis:
We have a deep understanding of the specific, niche problems that beauty and wellness businesses face, and how to solve them with technology. Zenoti has addressed just about every issue within the market, making us uniquely positioned to support the diverse business models within the Regis organization.
