Nailing the Market
These days, everyone is pressed for time and looking for ways to accomplish more in less time. With locations planned for airports and busy commercial centers, :10 Minute Manicure offers important services to our customers where the want it most: close to their office, where they shop and when they travel. Our sleek free standing or inline locations are geared to the high-end market, a market that's largely comprised of people who lack the time for hour-long treatments.
An Innovative Idea
The :10 Minute Manicure concept is the brainchild of Lorraine O'Neil, Vivian Jimenez, and Karen Janson. As professionals who traveled, the three friends brainstormed opportunities that would make lives easier for men and women travelers. It wasn't long before they arrived at the idea of express manicures in the airport.
In addition to firsthand experience with professional travel, Lorraine's background as an attorney and Vivian and Karen's experience as public relations executives have brought an ideal blend of personal insight and professional knowledge to :10 Minute Manicure. And their entrepreneurial spirit inspires them to achieve a goal to become the global leader in express nail services. Should you be selected to join the :10 Minute Manicure franchise team, you'll represent a vibrant and growing brand that has won the acclaim of national press, customers, and host airports. You'll operate your franchise, using our well-designed business system.
Brilliant Business System
When brainstorming this idea, :10 Minute Manicure founders listed all the elements they wanted to see in a nail care concept--and the result is : sterilized tools, consistent service levels, cool atmosphere, great products, and services that fit their busy schedules.
"I've seen people literally stop in their tracks when they see the ':10 Minute Manicure' marquee. They look at their watch and say, 'wow, I have 10 minutes.'"
