Following the acquisition of Emiliani Enterprises by SalonCentric in 2012, the Emiliani family retained its Paul Mitchell division and continued to operate as Paul Mitchell Metro. After recently reaching an agreement with SalonCentric, the Emiliani family has renamed the company Emiliani Metro.
“We are ecstatic about this change,” Vice-President Nancy Emiliani-Daugenti, says. “This agreement will allow us to continue to operate under our family’s name, something that we hold very close to our hearts.”
The Emiliani family started doing business in 1954 when its founder, James Emiliani, began servicing barbers from the back of his truck. He was later joined by his brothers Domenic, Sal and Roi. Domenic Emiliani went on to start Roma Beauty Supply in central Jersey which later merged with Emiliani beauty supply to form Emiliani Enterprises.
“We want to thank everyone that has supported us for the past 60 years,” Vice-President Maria Emiliani-Galasso, says. “Without the support of our employees, customers and vendors, past and present, Emiliani Metro could not exist.
Emiliani will be utilizing the SalonCentric store division to complement their salon consultants to service the NY/NJ Metropolitan market.
“While we believe technology should be utilized to enhance our operations, it can never replace personal connections. Our business was built on relationships and that is the core foundation of our business today,” CEO Carl Galasso, says.
Emiliani Metro services the New York and New Jersey markets with 20 salon consultants, customer service department, and a 24/7 website. The company is proud to distribute John Paul Mitchell Systems, Lasio and other brands. They are also partners with the TRVST academy for business programs to help salons become more successful.
