GLOSSLAB, the hygiene-first, membership based nail studio operator with 20 locations nationwide, has partnered with Joshua Coba, the co-founder of European Wax Center, to expand GLOSSLAB nationwide.
Coba is purchasing the existing 3 GLOSSLAB locations in Miami, FL and already has an additional 7 locations under construction and set to open by the end of the year. Coba will also oversee GLOSSLAB Franchise Development Nationwide and work with GLOSSLAB to significantly expand their proprietary product line.
“I’m excited to be GLOSSLAB’s first franchisee! This will give me the opportunity to continually enhance the franchisee experience as we bring other experienced operators into the system,” says Coba.
Born and raised in Miami, Coba noticed a gap in the market for a high-quality, affordable waxing service that catered to both men and women.
“I’m so excited to have Josh involved in the operations so early on, allowing our GLOSSLAB corporate team to focus on the next phase of our growth and supporting our future franchisees,” says Rachel Apfel Glass, Founder of GLOSSLAB.
GLOSSLAB has become a must-go destination for top names including: The Chainsmokers, Demi Moore, Lil Yachty, Lucy Liu, Jennifer Garner, Kate Bock, Minka Kelly, Neil Patrick Harris and PK Subban. This past summer, GLOSSLAB launched a slew of self care products including: polishes, treatments, hand + foot creams, mani/pedi kits, oils and more.
