Interesting Business Opportunity – Customer Convenience

Every once in a while I come across* a simple new service or idea that could easily be replicated in cities throughout the US and Canada. It is called Manicube ; a 15 minute manicure at your office. Manicube comes to YOU to provide manicures desk-side or in a conference room. Their manicures are quick without compromising quality so their clients stay professionally polished. Currently this service is only offered in New York city.

How Does It Work?

  1. Check their registration page to see if Manicube currently serves your office.
  2. View the dates and times that we will be at your office and seamlessly book your appointment. You can change or cancel at any time.
  3. It’s time for your service. Choose your polish color from our 60-color selection and browse magazines on our iPads. Emerge 15 minutes later with a chore checked off your list.

The three key selling points they use which I think can be applied to many services are:

  1. Catch up on the latest magazines and newspapers on our iPads as your manicurist works on your hands.
  2. Or simply go ahead and take a work phone call.
  3. No time for that catch up? Feel free to schedule a ‘Manicube Meet-up’ with a colleague.

Is there a way you can bring your product or service where people can use it more efficiently?
