As some of our kittens may know, Scott and I are from the West Coast and have a special place in our heart for Las Vegas. When Scott heard that Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos, had a vision to revitalize downtown Las Vegas, we were both very inspired and excited. Who doesn’t want to see Sin City looking all gorgeous and exciting again?
Scott, being a sneaky devil, emailed Tony’s office directly and through some kind of magic got us both invited out to Las Vegas to attend the Zappos holiday party and learn more about the Downtown Project.
Tony has allotted $350 million to invest in revitalizing Las Vegas, the new headquarters for Zappos. $50 million of that is going towards direct investment in small business. And guess what would be perfect for that Las Vegas style? A Bombshell salon! That’s right girlies, we are looking at opening up a location in Las Vegas if we can be a part of this amazing project.
During our trip to Las Vegas, we took a tour of the Zappos offices and got a chance to attend the holiday party with Zappos employees. On our way to the party, we got on board a random bus and sat down…only to discover that we were sitting right next to Tony Hsieh himself! This trip was just full of crazy coincidences.
If everything goes as planned, we may be back in Vegas in April to look at potential sites and review a business plan. Wish us luck and more news to come!
