The VENUS Story
A family-owned and operated business since 1977, VENUS Beauty Supplies Ltd. was founded by Sam & Alfreda Riverso (now enjoying retirement). In recent decades, Vince, Mara and Greg have continued their parent’s legacy with great pride and an undeniable commitment to excellence!
VENUS distributes over 15 major global brands from their newly expanded 40,000 square-foot modern facility in Mississauga, Ontario. With 54 staff, including 21 Business Consultants, 5 wholesale-only stores and 3 educational academies they’re able to reach out to over 12,000+ salons in the Province of Ontario. VENUS’ award-winning products are truly “only sold in salons” – a claim few Ontario distributors can make!
As an industry respected leader, VENUS is recognized by salons and manufacturers alike for their commitment to deliver a high quality level of service and excellence. President, Vince Riverso, explains; “our goal is to help our salon partners to be successful and profitable, by ensuring they have the most up-to-date products, solutions and education that they may require for today’s demanding and ever-changing salon environment”.
