Industry Icon John Meyerovich Passes Away at 75

John Meyerovich, vice president, co-owner, and cofounder of Continuum Pedicure Spas, has passed away at the age of 75. Meyerovich was the sole inventor of the world’s first whirlpool pedicure station, which was patented in 1985.

Meyerovich was born in Odessa and came to the U.S. in 1975. He opened his first nails-only school in Wisconsin during the 80s, before he was the co-owner of European Touch Co., Inc., which he sold in 1998. Over the years, he had 34 patents, spanning from the first filing in 1985 to a patent granted in April 2017 for the combined base and basin for pedicures.

Though retired, Meyerovich never lost touch with the industry he bloomed in. In 2007, he and his business partner Joseph Galati Jr. introduced the successful Maestro luxury pedicure spa. Meyerovich was active in the design of the spa and a number of more that followed.

While certainly known as an industry legend, visionary, and inventor, Meyerovich was better known for his value of his family and friends. He thought everyone deserved dignity and respect, regardless of one’s station or success in life. In a statement released from Continuum, the brand said, “we will never forget how John made all of us, better.”
