Marcus Lemonis disses 'Uber for Tailors'

George Zimmer back with zTailors

Men's Wearhouse founder George Zimmer has a new venture he's billing as Uber for tailors, but serial investor and entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, isn't biting.

The service is called zTailors, which Zimmer describes as an "on-demand, nationwide tailor network, much like Uber."

Customers make appointments online and tailors make house or office calls.

"There is no surcharge for having a tailor come out to your house," Zimmer said in an interview with "Power Lunch," noting that he hopes clients include everyone from "millennials to their parents."

However, Lemonis, who invests in businesses around the country and stars in CNBC's "The Profit," doesn't think it's a good plan.

"I think the challenge is you are probably going to take it to your dry cleaner … they fix something when you gain or lose weight and then they press it," he told "Power Lunch."

His biggest concern is letting someone into his house, despite the fact that zTailors says it conducts background checks.

"I'm in an Uber and I press the button, I can get out of the car even if it's moving. If I'm in my house with my pants on or putting them on, it's going to be a problem. So nobody's coming into the house," said Lemonis.

Zimmer did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Lemonis' remarks.
