Groupon Acquires PrettyQuick
Groupon is excited to announce the acquisition of PrettyQuick, a Chicago-based company that enables people to instantly book appointments through their website and mobile app at some of the top salons and spas in Chicago, Boston, Dallas, D.C., Miami and San Francisco.
Each of the nearly 1,000 salons and spas are personally chosen by one of PrettyQuick’s beauty editors, ensuring an amazing experience every time someone books an appointment. Payments through PrettyQuick are entirely cashless and seamlessly applied to the user’s credit card on file.
“We’re thrilled to welcome PrettyQuick to the Groupon family and look forward to leveraging their platform of salons and spas to make it easier for our customers to search, book and pay at some of the best places in their city,” said Vice President of Local Deals Jay Klauminzer.
PrettyQuick will continue to operate as a its own company, but we’re looking at exciting ways to work together, and to help health and beauty businesses get the most out of this partnership.
“Beauty has long been one of the most popular categories in the Groupon marketplace, and this acquisition gives us the ability to provide these businesses with the industry-specific tools they need to be successful and form deeper, longer-lasting relationships with customers,” Klauminzer said.
