Houston Native Opens Market’s First LunchboxWax Location
Manisha Shah, Houston native, IT Director and entrepreneur opened the new franchise unit in River Oaks.
November 12, 2021 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON, TX - The LunchboxWax® brand is excited to announce that Manisha Shah has opened Houston’s first LunchboxWax salon located at 2055 Westheimer Road, Suite 115A in the River Oaks community. To celebrate the salon opening, LunchboxWax River Oaks is offering a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE waxing for first-time guests. For any single wax service purchased using the promo code ADD14U, customers will receive a second single wax service of equal or lesser value for free. The salon is also offering guests a limited time deal on a series – anyone who buys a LunchboxWax series through December will receive seven services for the price of five.
Shah, a native Houstonian who graduated from Madison High School and attended the University of Houston, worked as an IT Engineer and a Director for 18 years at Stewart Title Company before going into business with her family. After having two kids during that time, Shah knew she wanted to branch out and open her own business.
Seeing a need for a wax-only salon in her hometown, Shah pursued a franchising opportunity with the LunchboxWax brand. With the recent opening of her salon, she’s ready to provide guests with a unique experience that allows them to get a speed wax during their lunch hour - and still have time for lunch. Shah notes that her new business is the only salon of its kind in the market, which is why she has her sights set on taking over the market.
“If there’s one thing the last year showed us is that beauty is never going away,” said Shah. “Houston is currently an underserved market, and my LunchboxWax salon will provide Houstonians with speed-waxing services that they can’t find anywhere else.”
LunchboxWax salons are full-service, speed-waxing salons that cater to every body and since waxing is the only service offered, the professionally trained waxologists are masters of their craft. For guests, this can translate to unparalleled services in a one-of-a-kind setting. For franchise owners, it can mean high employee retention, loyal, and happy clientele, and strong potential for growth as part of a brand culture rooted in comprehensive training and support.
“We’re thrilled to bring the LunchboxWax brand to Houston,” said Lauren Wanamaker, Sr. Director of Franchise Development for WellBiz Brands, Inc., manager of the LunchboxWax brand. “The response so far has been outstanding. Our three-step speed-waxing process combines refined, effective waxing techniques with premium-quality products. Guests who experience LunchboxWax services get that silky-smooth skin feel and boldly confident look in no time at all. We use a proprietary “soft wax” technique that is more effective and hurts less than traditional waxing. We’re excited to work with Manisha to continue to help grow the brand in the market and provide a service to help people look and feel their best.”
“The LunchboxWax brand is all about empowering women, which aligns to my core values,” said Shah. “I’m excited to show my hometown that beauty can be a priority and can be done quickly and professionally, and I’m eager to help Houston residents feel their best.” The salon is open Monday - Saturday from 9am - 7pm, and Sunday from 10am - 5:30pm and located at 2055 Westheimer Road, Suite 115A, Houston, TX 77098.
