LunchboxWax ANNOUNCES FIRST COLORADO LOCATION
—Speed-waxing franchise opens late December in Glendale on Colorado Boulevard—
October 30 2015, Denver, CO — LunchboxWax, a wax-only franchise known for its emotive brand that happily encourages all to “Bare Your Beauty,” announced today its Colorado franchisee signed a commercial lease agreement and started construction on the first Denver-area location.
John Platten, who has enjoyed significant success operating franchises in the restaurant and beauty industries, signed a commercial lease for a four-suite, 1,200 square-foot space and is planning a late December opening in Glendale (1000 S Colorado Blvd., Glendale, CO 80246). LunchboxWax joins other businesses in this high-end shopping center such as ModMarket, Carve BBQ and Barnes & Noble.
Partner and longtime Boulder resident Amy Scott will oversee daily operations of the salon.
The first of six Colorado locations for Platten and Scott marks the franchise’s 17th operating salon nationwide. Named four consecutive times in Entrepreneur Magazine’s top 10 categories in franchising, the rapidly growing franchise has commitments for more than 100 salons in 16 states and Puerto Rico, answering growing consumer demand for expertly trained estheticians trained for the sole purpose of speed waxing in an environment that is dedicated to each guest’s comfort.
“As body waxing makes a rapid transition from a luxury to a commodity service, LunchboxWax is well positioned in the market to cater to men and women who are mindful about the places they go and the people they choose for personal services,” LunchboxWax Founder + CEO Debi Lane said. “We’re as intentional about the locations we choose as we are the waxologists we hire, the products we use, the design and layout of our salons, and the franchisees we bring on board to grow our business.”
