Wax On Wax Off: The Lunchbox Wax Franchise Opportunity

LunchBox Waxing

Are you ready to learn about the LunchBox Wax franchise?

Recently, as I was bopping around online, I ran across a business called “Lunchbox Wax.” Strange name, right? But check out what this rather unique franchise business does.

The Lunchbox Wax® waxing business is an automotive franchise where customers bring their vehicles in for a one-hour high-quality wax while they wait. Now this is where it gets interesting.

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

Evidently, customers are encouraged to bring in their own food to eat or they can order lunch/dinner in the Lunchbox Waxing dining car, while professionally trained wax technicians work their speed waxing magic. The result? LunchboxWax customers leave with a full belly and a vehicle that looks shiny and new.

So what do you think? Is that a business you’d visit?

Wax on, right hand. Wax off, left hand. Wax on, wax off. Breathe… in through nose, out the mouth. Wax on, wax off. Don’t forget to breathe. Very important. Wax on, wax off. Wax on, wax off.

Inside The Mind Of The Franchise King®

According to Jeannine (wife) and Grace (daughter), my synapses don’t always pass messages between neurons correctly. I’m told they get a bit jumbled. That may be what happened here. Let me explain.

I’m a car guy. I love cars. Loud cars. 0-60 mph times. Torque. Braking distances. Wax.

the franchise king loves fast cars

That probably explains why, after running across a business named LunchboxWax, the first visual my brain came up with was automotive-related. Turns out my visual was severely flawed. Why is that?

Because Lunchbox Waxing is not an automotive franchise.

Lunchbox Wax® Franchise: It’s A Waxing Salon



In reality, Lunchbox Wax is a waxing service franchise. Waxing as in, “hair removal.” It’s a body waxing salon!

To clarify, the business has nothing to do with shiny, freshly waxed Solid Black Tesla S’s.

At LunchboxWax, we believe that beauty is much more than just your external appearance – it’s how you feel about yourself. With our personal care services, you’ll be pampered in a safe, respectful environment. Our waxologists offer a range of waxing services for everybody.

It just so happens that the founder, Debi Lane, launched California’s first waxing salon entirely dedicated to body waxing in 2010. Her waxing services business became so popular, she turned it into a Waxing franchise business in 2013. As of this writing, there are 50+ LunchBoxWax Waxing locations open, with several more in the pipeline.

Wait. What About Lunch?

While the body waxing franchise business is growing, wax salons aren’t including lunch. Even ones with the word “Lunch” as part of its name.

Although enjoying a nice meal at the time of service would probably be an excellent distraction.

That said, a number of factors are contributing to this growth, including the growing number of men who are willing to pay for hair removal at a waxing salon…for the complete waxing experience.


Dear Debi Lane,

By now you’ve probably read the post I wrote about your waxing salon business. And you may be angry.

I want to apologize for wrongly describing your franchise business. I’m an idiot. After all, what do I know about hair removal…body waxing?

So as a gesture of goodwill, I would be more than happy to try out your body waxing services. Just let me know when you open a Lunchbox Wax business near me. I’ll even write a review (waxing poetically of course) for you.

As a final point, I look forward to my first body waxing experience. Maybe we can meet someday.

Best of luck, and I hope you open a lot of franchises! Let me know if I can help.
