Quikr has acquired StayGlad, the marketplace for beauty services. The strategic move will further strengthen the market leadership of its beauty service brand, AtHomeDiva, by enabling it to take on even more beauty services requests under its services vertical, QuikrServices.
AtHomeDiva currently offers on-demand, in-home beauty services across six cities including Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Gurgaon and Hyderabad.
Bangalore-based StayGlad was founded in May, 2015 by IIT KGP alumni, Prateek Jain, Shashank Gupta and Kavish Desai. In less than one year of its operations, it does hundreds of orders per day at an average value of 1400/- per transaction. The 100-member team of StayGlad including its founders and stylists will now be a part of AtHomeDiva.
StayGlad is the third in a series of beauty-services startups acquired by QuikrServices. Prior acquisitions include Salosa and ZapLuk that have helped expand AtHomeDiva’s range of beauty services and its reach across cities.
