Esteemed franchisees from brands including Bravo TV, Papa John’s, Jersey Mike’s, Dog Haus, Great Clips, and Primrose Schools have joined during the first franchising year. To further speak on the GLO30 model, 50+ unit Papa John’s Franchisee, Philip Horn, had this to say, “The scheduling is easy, the operations are easy, you know what’s coming every month. We really like the simplicity and the consistency of the GLO30 model.”
In 2012, GLO30 revolutionized the skincare services industry by introducing the monthly subscription-based membership model, setting new standards for treatment affordability and accessibility. Their groundbreaking innovation has extended to GLOria, the industry’s first proprietary AI tool. GLOria customizes treatments, offers real-time product recommendations, and guides members to achieve the coveted “GLO Zone” of skin health. Bridging the gap between facial bars and med spas, GLO30 provides hyper focused and highly personalized treatments to members across the country.
“We’ve led the industry for over a decade by bringing approachable, accessible, and affordable treatments to customers looking for skincare that fits their schedule,” said Dr. Arleen Lamba, founder of GLO30. “We’re meeting a demand in the market that hasn’t been addressed by any other brand. Our franchisees have recognized this, and almost every one has decided to expand their units beyond their original deal. That speaks volumes because we’re attracting experienced, high-profile franchisees who are deeply involved in expanding our brand across the country.”
To support their rapidly expanding franchise system, GLO30 has welcomed Artemis Benedetti as Director of Franchise Operations, former C.O.O. of Jabz Boxing. GLO30 has also made several notable strategic partnerships, including Fransmart, the global franchising leader specializing in emerging brands; and Linda Rubiola of SHOP Companies as their exclusive Real Estate professional. In 2024, GLO30 plans to explore strategic hiring and partnerships even further to provide franchisees with a deep pool of resources to reach higher success.
GLO30 is targeting the top 50 MSAs in North America for franchise growth with an emphasis on areas with high foot traffic and a thriving community. With a model that can thrive in urban, suburban, corporate, and tourist areas, GLO30 is designed to be as adaptable and efficient as possible to scale across the country.
