Booksy Reaches 100,000 Professional Beauty Provider Milestone Making it the Largest Beauty Booking App in the World

Booksy, the leader in booking and business technology for beauty pros, now powers over 100,000 professionals around the globe. This milestone makes Booksy the largest and fastest growing solution for appointment-based beauty service providers in the world. 

It all started back in 2015 when co-founder and CEO, Stefan Batory, was trying to get an appointment with his physical therapist to alleviate him from the discomforts of being an ultra-marathon runner. Voicemail. Wait. Missed call. Wait. It didn’t take long for Stefan to see the opportunity in front of him. He turned to his colleague and former business partner at iTaxi and EO Networks, Konrad Howard, to help address the annoyances related to booking appointments. Together, they created a solution that we now know as Booksy.

Since that day, Booksy has been on a mission to give beauty pros the tools that they need to run their businesses with ease. This includes booking, payment processing, communicating with clients, and attracting new clients. Booksy also empowers customers by giving them a platform to research and discover local service providers and manage their appointments. No phone tag required. 

Booksy’s strategy is rooted in three themes: empowering independence, building communities, and supporting the unique journeys of all customers and businesses who trust in the platform. Now, with over 100,000 businesses and 20 million customers relying on their technology, Booksy can proudly say they’ve built one of the largest communities in the world. 

Booksy was founded on an idea that booking appointments should be easy. What we’ve become is so much more. I’m honored that so many businesses have trusted in us to help them realize their dreams. Their passion is what drives us, and really, we’re just getting started.” ~Stefan Batory, CEO.

The proof isn’t just in the volume of users, but also in the sentiments of beauty pros and other businesses on the platform. In Poland, for example, Booksy maintains a higher ranking on App Store and Google Play than other tech giants like Facebook and Tinder. It’s clear. Businesses appreciate having a personal assistant in their back pocket and customers love the ability to book anytime, from anywhere.
