First Studio to Open in Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#amazing—Amazing
Lash Studio, the franchisor of the revolutionary eyelash extension
concept, announced today its expansion into the Northern Virginia
region. The expansion is being spearheaded by Regional Developers Mr.
Henry Kim and Mr. Stephen Vereb.
Franchising for just over three years, Amazing Lash Studio has shown
extraordinary growth with 227 licenses awarded in 25 states. “We are on
pace to be one of the fastest growing concepts this decade,” states
Co-Founder and CEO Mr. Edward Le. “Amazing Lash Studio is taking the
beauty industry by storm for its ability to provide time-constrained
women with beautiful, long-lasting, natural-looking eyelashes.”
Henry and Stephen come to the concept with impressive resumes. While
engaged in successful careers as Corporate Business Developers, they
both had entrepreneurial aspirations. In 2006, they began researching a
variety of concepts and unearthed Massage Envy. After due
diligence, they were confident this was the business for them. Opening
their first clinic in 2007, they quickly attained success and in just
two short years, were bestowed the prestigious Massage Envy
Franchisee of the Year Award. Soon thereafter, this dynamic duo
received additional company accolades for operational excellence and
were presented the Multi-Unit Franchisees of the Year Award. They
currently own and operate six high performing Massage Envy clinics.
In 2015, realizing the overwhelming demand for skilled massage
therapists, they founded the American Massage and Bodywork Institute
(AMBI) in Vienna, Virginia.
Later that same year, while looking for diversification opportunities,
they were introduced to the Amazing Lash Studio concept and were
instantly enamored. “Like Massage Envy, this is a first to market
concept that provides a service that is convenient and affordable,” says
Stephen. “It is ideal for the consumer, the stylist, and the franchise
owner. We are thrilled to come in at the takeoff of this business.”
The first Amazing Lash Studio in Northern Virginia will open in
Woodbridge in January 2017 with a fast track plan to open about 30 in
the next two to four years.
