GLOSSLAB to Franchise with 45-Location Florida Expansion

GLOSSLAB, the membership based nail studio operator, will open 45 franchise locations in partnership with Joshua Coba, the co-founder of European Wax Center. Coba has secured the area representative rights to South Florida. Of the 45 locations, three are open and seven are already under construction and scheduled to open early 2024.

Coba, who is also overseeing GLOSSLAB's franchise development nationwide and the expansion of their proprietary product line, has a track record of transforming beauty and wellness businesses. This latest partnership underscores his dedication to innovation and growth within the industry. Along with GLOSSLAB, his portfolio includes several successful ventures, which has solidified his position as a prominent figure in the beauty and wellness sector.

Coba expressed his enthusiasm about this expansion, stating, "With this acquisition, we aim to bring GLOSSLAB's renowned services to even more people, while maintaining the high-quality standards the brand is known for. South Florida was the perfect region to grow the brand in this manner."

"Coba has proved to be a wonderful partner for us thus far, and we look forward to continuing our South Florida expansion of the brand with him by our side," 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. GLOSSLAB has a line of self care products including: polishes, treatments, hand + foot creams, mani/pedi kits, oils and more.
