We have always believed that our brand and business is much bigger than us and so we have always remained behind the scenes working hard. But so often we get asked about our story, our lives, our interests and pleasures we share together as a couple, so we thought we would use this wonderful platform, our Blog Dose of Pleasure, to share a little bit more about us.
Just over ten years ago, we met at a restaurant in Toronto, no surprise, dining on great food and enjoying great music. As we dated and fell in love, we explored the city’s amazing spas, salons, restaurants, lounges and hotels and found a shared passion for the businesses making a real investment in design, atmosphere, sensory experiences and great service.
We loved sitting at bars, talking with staff, trying new drinks and celebrating the little things in life. Finding ourselves unhappy with our professional lives and looking for a way to spend more time together, we decided to take a risk and start a business focused on our passions. We noticed that all the things we loved, the pleasures of hospitality, seemed absent in the beauty service industry, so the idea was born to weave hospitality into a salon.
The next year was the scariest and most exciting of our lives, quitting our jobs, pouring our savings into a business plan, meeting with designers and banks and attending esthetics schools and beauty conferences. We settled on a name that we felt brought a literal sense of what we wanted to project. And while the focus always seems to be on Majesty, we tend to focus more on the Pleasure. We are proud of always making pleasure a priority in our lives, and we believed our name should speak to that. If we could get people to spend more time with us, taking an hour out of their week to feel great, look great and be surrounded by great people, a beautiful venue and pleasurable amenities, we would have a success.And here we are, 5 years into Majesty’s Pleasure, with two kids, two locations and staff committed to bringing pleasure to our clients everyday. And we are so glad you found us!
We strive everyday to innovate and raise the bar with sterilization, technique and ambience. We love to explore the city and be inspired by a warm welcome at a coffee shop, or a convenient follow up phone call from a retail shop. We love hosting friends and trying new wines and spirits with our loved ones. We visit hotels year round to discover unique design ideas and ways of bringing more visual pleasure into a room. We scour the web to find more convenient ways to book experiences and buy products. But we find that the simple pleasures in our life, like the laughter of our kids, that make us happy, in turn brings happiness to our leadership style and in turn feeds the business. So we make it our job to seek pleasure all the time, to keep the cycle alive. It’s not easy. Life has its ups and downs and so do our relationships and so does the business. But our passion to always make ourselves happier, our staff happier and our guests happier is what keeps the whole thing going. We promise never to give up on you and everything you deserve when visiting us.
There are so many exciting things coming this year, inspired by new found pleasures but also based on client and staff feedback. We truly believe the best ideas come from the people that spend the most time with us. So stay tuned…but in the meantime we will continue to strive to be the very best in everything we do.
Thank you for being interested in us, and for taking a chance on us, thank you for at times, giving us a second chance, and thank you for always making a point to let us know when we are doing a great job, it fuels us to get up another day and come back to the best job in the world, bringing pleasure to your lives.
Jeff & Sara, xoxo
