Well, here we go! Back in January, we had the honor of hanging out with celebs at the Sundance Style Lounge. There, we were starting to spread the word (quietly?) that we had big plans to roll in to Southern California in 2015. Not a moment later, the plans fell together, and now it's official: We have three spectacular franchisee groups picking locations for Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernadino, Riverside and San Diego.
Brooke and Frank Leal have entered an agreement to develop eight LunchboxWax locations in Los Angeles County. Brooke, who will oversee daily operation of the Los Angeles salons, was a flight attendant based out of San Francisco, Los Angeles and London for more than a dozen years. Soon after, she obtained her esthetician license and joined the beauty industry, working for a popular, high-end Los Angeles spa and investing in a successful beauty startup.
Longtime tech entrepreneur Angela Mabon, who co-founded multi-million dollar companies G-Technology and mLogic with her husband, signed an area agreement to open 10 salons in Orange County, San Bernadino County and Riverside County. Mabon is currently undergoing site selection in Newport for the first location.
Jaime Gardner and Ryan Ley, who also have an area agreement for LunchboxWax franchise development for the state of Nevada, signed an area agreement to open six salons in the greater San Diego area. The team, who each have been in the field of psychiatry for the past decade, are reviewing commercial real estate options in San Diego and Las Vegas simultaneously.
“We continue to bring on hands-down stellar franchisees to join our young, growing team,” LunchboxWax Founder + CEO Debi Lane said. “I’m continually impressed by the caliber of people drawn to our franchise concept and am equally energized by the positive response we receive in the communities we are opening in nationwide.”
