“While we continue to drive our expansion efforts of the Waxing the City brand, we’re fortunate to find exceptional entrepreneurs who share in our belief of boosting the self-esteem of the world by bringing a unique waxing experience to their communities. Waxing the City goes beyond traditional waxing by offering a full range of skincare and beauty services, as well as its own innovative product line and proprietary wax,” said Nick Herrild, Brand President, Waxing the City. “As part of the Self Esteem Brands family, Waxing the City and our franchisees have access to benefits from training and real estate support to local marketing to help grow the brand. With this hands-on support, Waxing the City can be a great investment for entrepreneurs looking to get involved in a flourishing industry.”

Waxing the City’s rapid growth in key markets nationwide can be partially credited to its best-in-class service platform, as the brand received a 94 percent overall satisfaction rate in 2022. Additionally, Waxing the City is seeing an average ticket increase of 23 percent compared to pre-pandemic spending.

Looking to capitalize on Waxing the City’s recent success and lead development in Jacksonville is franchise owner and operator Tanika Adams of Black Rose Gold, LLC. A first-time franchisee, Tanika was drawn to Waxing the City through her own interest in the beauty and wellness space and witnessed firsthand the customer interactions and endless foot traffic at a Waxing the City studio.

“Opening my first franchise was a big decision and having the extraordinary support system from Self Esteem Brands was critical in my decision to bring Waxing the City to my hometown,” said Tanika Adams. “Since day one, the Waxing the City franchise development team has been by my side every step of the way – readily available to offer support and answer questions as I embark on my own entrepreneurial journey.”

The second largest waxing franchise in the United States, Waxing the City was founded by four women in 2003 and offers waxing and beauty services tailored to meet customers’ needs in the evolving space. The company’s ability to cater to consumers’ demand for services that go beyond waxing – including lash and brow lifts, tints, and laminations – has positioned the brand to become a one-stop shop for all waxing and body care needs. Waxing the City is well-positioned for continued growth in the thriving health and beauty sector through its inclusive waxing services, proprietary skin and beauty care products, and highly trained aestheticians called Cerologists.

With more than 145 locations nationwide, Waxing the City has added more than 38 units to its development pipeline in the past year. As part of Self Esteem Brands’ portfolio of wellness and fitness brands, the brand is leading the booming self-care industry by helping boost clients’ self-esteem through waxing and beauty services.
