It’s Official: BoomZip Launches In Phoenix!
BoomZip Is In Phoenix!
Last month I wrote that BoomZip, the on-demand beauty and wellness service, had soft launched in the Valley, enabling anyone who signs up for a BoomZip account to take full advantage of the service. As of yesterday, the company “officially” opened for business in the Phoenix Valley. BoomZip is in Phoenix! Yea!
I met up with Rhonda Taylor to discuss BoomZip. Rhonda is the Vice President of Communications for BoomZip. She’s super enthusiastic about the company and has worked in the beauty and wellness industry for over twelve years.
BoomZip.com and Customers
BoomZip’s top-flight beauty and wellness experts provide an incredible array of services to you in your home or office including: blowouts, updos, facials, make-up, yoga sessions, fitness sessions, micro-needling, dermaplaning, manicures, pedicures, men’s haircuts & beard trims, dreadlock installation, nutritional counseling and life coaching. When customers tap BoomZip’s app and select the beauty or wellness service they want, along with the time, date, and location where they want the service, BoomZip’s technology selects the perfect beauty or wellness pro that matches what you have requested. That pro then arrives at your home or office on the date & time you requested. Rhonda revealed that all professionals who apply to work with BoomZip undergo an interview, a qualifications screening, licensing, onboarding, and a rigorous background check.
Rhonda says it’s great to see Phoenix-area customers being treated like VIPs and able to enjoy the same top quality services they experience at a salon or spa at their convenience, in the comfort of their own home, and at virtually anytime they choose. The service is super convenient for busy women, men, new moms, people who want privacy with their pampering, and people who can’t leave their homes for health or other reasons.
BoomZip and Beauty & Wellness Professionals
BoomZip is also a fantastic opportunity for beauty and wellness professionals. It allows them to generate incremental income doing what they love. They can choose when they work and how much they earn. According to Rhonda, the flexibility of setting up their own schedule means that many of the beauty and wellness pros work other jobs, some even work in beauty salons or fitness studios, while doing BoomZip in their spare time. While BoomZip service providers are fully screened, BoomZip also tracks their service providers to ensure their safety, performance and on-time arrival. It’s a win-win for everyone.
BoomZip’s Past, Present and Future
The meeting with Rhonda was a casual lunch at the Sugar Bowl in Scottsdale that included BoomZip co-founder Darryl Mobley stopping by briefly so that I could also ask him a few questions. Here are their answers regarding BoomZip’s past, present and future.
BB: Where will you provide services in the Phoenix area?
RT: BoomZip’s services will be available in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Surprise, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe, Paradise Valley, Mesa, Peoria, Carefree, Litchfield Park, Cave Creek, and everywhere in between. We want to provide service all over the Valley.
BB: What attracted you to the Phoenix area?
RT: We were attracted to Phoenix because of the lifestyle. People in the Valley seem really focused on beauty, health, and overall wellness which is what BoomZip is all about.
BB: What has been BoomZip’s greatest challenge launching in Phoenix, and how will you overcome it?
RT: Based on the interest we’ve seen so far, our greatest challenge is meeting demand – having enough excellent beauty and wellness pros to meet the requests for our on-demand, in home beauty and wellness services. We want everyone in the Valley to be able to experience Boomzip.com.
BB: How do you see BoomZip’s growth in Phoenix a year from now? How about BoomZip’s growth overall?
RT: We are very proud to be able to say that BoomZip is in Phoenix. We’d like to see BoomZip continue to grow in the Phoenix area and plan to expand throughout Arizona. Our longer term goal is to have BoomZip as available across the U.S. as are Lyft and Uber.
BB: What do you tell people who are hesitant to try BoomZip because of the perceived higher cost relative to a salon or spa?
RT: Our clients are really surprised and pleased to find that our prices are generally the same as, and often lower than, the high costs found in salons and spas. Once they try our on-demand in home beauty and wellness services, they are hooked. They love the convenience and pampering.
BB: How can I get BoomZip?
DM: I love that question! Just go to BoomZip.com and click on one of the offerings on the screen that encourage you to get our App. It’s fast and easy from there.
BB: How can a skilled beauty or wellness professional apply to BoomZip?
DM: Go to BoomZip.com/careers. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on CAREERS. Then, just follow the instructions from there.
BB: Any advice for new entrepreneurs?
DM: We have one dream and one mission: bringing beauty and wellness services to people in their homes. We stay laser focused on that mission and on providing the highest quality service with trusted providers. Find a need and fill it and stay focused on your core reason for being. I’d also encourage my fellow entrepreneurs to embrace the uncertainty and don’t get distracted. My personal goal is to share the dream with as many people as possible.
