Beauty brand to open second St. Louis retail store
Amazing Lash Studio, an eyelash extension franchise, is opening its second St. Louis-area location Friday.
The new studio, owned by local franchisee Donn Ganim, is at 1556 S. Lindbergh Blvd. in Ladue. Ganim, who holds the franchise for the St. Louis area and all of Missouri outside Kansas City, opened his first local studio in Chesterfield in 2016.
The brand provides semi-permanent eyelash extensions in private "lash application suites."
Ganim, who once owned Jeremiah's bar in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and has operated other franchises, is now regional developer for Amazing Lash Studio.
The Englewood, Colorado-based franchisor estimates startup costs for a single Amazing Lash Studio at $251,000 to $504,000, including an initial franchise fee of $39,000.
