-StyleMeBar- is at the forefront of the burgeoning “on-demand economy” for salon services, successfully leveraging technology while utilizing existing infrastructure and experience to deliver services in an industry that has historically been slow to innovate. With the arrival of everyday purchasing driven through smartphones, we are currently seeing one of the most transformational shifts in consumption patterns in history. Never before have consumers had the flexibility to buy anything they want at any time, simply at the tap of a button. In a survey conducted by The On-Demand Economy of 18 high-profile industries “Influencers”, home services, delivery and local events were the most likely to experience explosive growth over the next three years, which represents the fastest and most significant shift in spending since the advent of internet commerce.
Simply put, with our professional expertise, dedication to customer experience and focus on delivering high quality services, -StyleMeBar- is uniquely positioned in the right field at the right time to capitalize on changes in the market and consumer behavior to emerge as an industry leader.
Though -StyleMeBar- has been operational for just over 3 years, we have already established an extensive following and considerable reputation in the area for our phenomenal service and client experience. Our growth has been consistent with the increase in sales numbers ranging from 175% to 293% year to year. We forecast steady upward projections as we continue the development of the company going forward. Additionally, our business model is highly scalable, we anticipate not only an increased depth of operations in our current area, but also an expanded breadth beyond the region.
-StyleMeBar- is sought after to provide on-demand, on-site wedding services. In 2016, we contracted 161 weddings and 176 weddings in 2017.
