Through his extensive business experience, Mark has become uniquely talented with staff development, business growth, and customer service. Mark conceptualized the idea for PAINT Nail Bar when, after accompanying his wife countless times to salons, he recognized a gap in the industry and a rich opportunity to capitalize on safety standards and customer service protocols. As a result of Mark’s profound and enduring success as a franchisee for a decade, Mark is driven by a passion to guide others to success in their own businesses as PAINT Nail Bar franchisees. Mark has credited his dynamism and success in building businesses to the fundamental lessons he learned from his father about relationship management, integrity, and commitment to blazing new trails.
In 2013, after moving with her family to Sarasota, Florida, Michele became frustrated with her nail care experiences and approached Mark about bringing to “life” the nail bar concept they had discussed in the past. With Michele’s vision, sense of style, and impeccable attention to detail, the flagship location of PAINT Nail Bar was launched in March 2015. Michele’s years of experience in business, customer service, and staff development had immediate impact as PAINT quickly became the fastest growing nail salon in southwest Florida. With Michele’s leadership, PAINT quickly surpassed all original growth goals as it developed the reputation for unprecedented customer service and experience.
