Who we are

It all started with a multi-unit franchisee or better known as a Zee in the franchise world (ah ha!  so that’s where the name zeezor comes from) and her technology savvy husband. She was part of a billion dollar salon franchise organization with great systems, great point of sale, great reporting and reporting and reporting…. alas that was the problem. With all the reports she still didn’t have what she really needed.

ZeeZor was born and works with POS companies and customers to build businesses, but if you ask our customers what we do, one word keeps coming up…. FREEDOM!

Meet our executive team

ZeeZor was created by business owners for business owners.  Our leadership team is comprised of entrepreneurs of successful companies in the technology, beauty, marketing and hospitality industries.  Any one of them is willing to help because we have one theme in common “We Serve”.

Chris Nedza
Founder/CEO

Chris Nedza
Founder/CEO

Chris was inspired to build ZeeZor by his wife. She was a very successful franchisee of one of the largest independent chain of hair salons. After watching her struggle with getting relevant information from the extensive POS reports, he realized there had to be a better way. ZeeZor was born out of that frustration and it has been the most exciting time in his career. Chris has had a very successful career as an entrepreneur and has built, sold and performed turnaround services for numerous companies. But his greatest love is his Lord, Family and the people he is honored to serve - particularly our customers. You'll find him enthusiastically serving just about anybody and the church kids call him "Uber Chris" - a reference to his willingness to haul loads of kids around.

Cindy Howell
President

Cindy Howell

Cindy is an operations savant, but it is her genuine love of people that makes her so special. Cindy has been a 25 year franchisee of Great Clips for Hair and owned/operated over 40 locations - she knows how important it is to have access to store and people data. She has been instrumental in not only guiding day-to-day operations of ZeeZor, but she teaches our customers how to praise and lift people up. "If you'll look for the victories and praise quickly, the entire organization will respond remarkably". In fact, she is responsible for crafting our simple mission statement "We Serve" and based it on the concept of servant leadership. Cindy loves working and consulting with salon owners and managers and as you can tell from her photo, she's equally addicted to ZeeZor!
