Waxxpot Signs First License Agreement in Pittsburgh
January 19, 2022 // Franchising.com // COLUMBUS, Ohio - Waxxpot, a full-service waxing salon that provides hair-removal services from head to toe, is continuing expansion with its first license agreement in Pittsburgh, Pa. Franchisee Jodi Zusack signed the agreement last fall. The new salon is slated to open this summer in the East Liberty area of Pittsburgh.
Zusack spent 28 years in the transportation industry with Enterprise Rent-A-Car in West Virginia and Pittsburgh. She joined the company as a management trainee after graduating college and spent the latter part of her career as an area manager overseeing 10 rental car facilities. While Zusack had never considered owning a franchise, a family member suggested she look into the booming beauty business, and specifically the concept of Waxxpot.
“In the blink of an eye, I went from a long-term career in transportation to looking at a Waxxpot franchise and I’ve never looked back,” Zusack said. “Hearing the vision from the CEO, his passion, and the opportunity to be on the ground floor of Waxxpot’s growth explosion is what sold me.”
Waxxpot began franchising in 2020 and has 13 salons open across Ohio, Georgia, Colorado, and Texas. The brand sold out all of Louisville, Ky., Lexington, Ky., and Cincinnati, Ohio last year.
Waxxpot salons feature modern, über-chic interior styling with private waxing rooms and a variety of waxing services and treatments for men and women. Featured services include Brazilian and bikini waxes, facial and eyebrow waxing, lash lifts, lash tints and an extensive menu of men’s services. The brand specializes in high quality private and gentle hair removal. At each salon, estheticians with specialized industry knowledge offer custom waxing services to ensure smooth results in a timely fashion. Waxxpot also uses proprietary, beeswax-based hard and soft waxes that make the hair removal process easier for guests.
Waxxpot launched six, high-end retail body and brow products in 2021. The Body Collection includes a proprietary body wash, body lotion, and an ingrown hair serum that were carefully formulated and are exclusive to Waxxpot. In addition, the brand introduced a brow gel and brow serum line. The products are only available for purchase at Waxxpot salons across the country.
