Nelson Coba moves from Ecuador to build a successful salon business in America. Five years later, his two sons, Dave and Josh, join him here - quite literally making it a family company!
Nelson’s two sons, Dave and Josh, join their father in the salon business. Determined to develop the world’s best wax, the brothers traveled to Europe and worked with a chemist to create what is now known as EWC’s exclusive Comfort Wax™.
When the recession hits, Dave and Josh realize that waxing is the only service still thriving in the salon. That’s when they have a revolutionary idea: to create a business solely around waxing.
Determined to develop the world’s best wax, the Coba brothers go to Europe and work with a chemist to create what is now known as EWC’s exclusive Comfort Wax™ - which makes waxing virtually painless.
European Wax Center is officially founded. Our concept is simple: to bring the distinctive waxing expertise and luxurious experience of EWC to guests across the US.
On opening day, nobody showed up! So Dave and Josh decided to incentivise customers with a free wax, and to this day, the first was at EWC is always free.
European Wax Center’s first product line is unveiled, marking our step toward becoming a personal care brand.
INC Magazine names European Wax Center the fastest growing franchise in the US, highlighting our relentless commitment to excellence.
We launch the Strut 365™ product portfolio.
European Wax Center establishes our world headquarters in Plano, TX.
European Wax Center makes its debut as a publicly listed company EWCZ, marking an exciting journey forward to widen the gap and remain the leader in the out of home waxing industry. We retired Strut 365 product line to make way for our enhanced proprietary pre- and post-wax product line: Treat, Slow, Glow, Groom product systems.
