UKW Franchising Company LLC, parent company of Uni K Wax Studios, a nationwide waxing franchise, is proud to highlight the success of Edwin Miranda, a franchise owner of three Uni K Wax studios in the Greater Miami area. His studios are located in Bal Harbour, London Square, and Pinecrest.

Miranda purchased all three of his locations from a previous franchise owner, starting three years ago at the height of COVID-19. Originally an owner of his own marketing agency, Miranda was introduced to Uni K Wax as a customer. After falling in love with the brand, it seemed like a no-brainer to look into Uni K Wax’s franchise opportunity when he was researching potential investments.

“The product is amazing. The service is great,” said Miranda. “When I was looking for an investment, I really liked how technology was integrated into the model. Even before COVID, you could do contactless check-in and check-out. You check in with your phone number at the kiosk, and then when you check out, you can pay on an iPad. I really like how it’s a frictionless customer experience.”

From inception, Uni K Wax has always emphasized the need to provide a clean and hygienic experience for all customers. All locations have a wax lab, where the brand’s proprietary wax blend is prepared fresh for each appointment. This, in addition to an established contactless check-in system, made Uni K Wax studios well equipped the weather the COVID-19 storm.

“If you follow the methodology, you will see returns,” said Miranda. “I really like seeing our waxers grow. Most of our team works on commission, so watching them grow over the years is rewarding. Your waxers are your business partners. If they’re increasing their numbers and revenue, it’s because the business is growing. If one grows, the other does, too.”

An avid Florida Gators fan, jogging enthusiast, and owner of other beauty business concepts, Miranda appreciates the quality of the Uni K Wax product and the ease of studio management. What appealed most to him most was the simplicity of the business model. “With Uni K Wax, you don’t have too many moving parts,” said Miranda. “You only have one supplier. And your team isn’t that large. It’s easier to manage eight employees versus 16.”

“We’re quite impressed with Edwin and the success he’s achieved with his three studios,” said Heather Elrod, Executive Chair of Uni K Wax. “Having started his journey with Uni K during such an unpredictable time, it’s truly remarkable to see the way he’s continued to grow his locations. He’s an asset to our franchise network, and we’re very lucky to have him as a business partner.”

Miranda’s Bal Harbour studio is located at 9567 Harding Avenue, and his London Square studio is located at 13550 SW 120 Street, Suite 448. Lastly, his Pinecrest location can be visited at 9485 S. Dixie Hwy.

Uni K Wax Studios is devoted to the art of natural and safe hair removal in a clean and comfortable environment. They manufacture and supply their own wax to Uni K Wax Studios nationwide and offer both walk-in and by-appointment service to male and female customers. Uni K Wax offers customers over 160 waxing services centered around their all-natural, paraben- and gluten-free elastic wax. The wax is applied at body temperature, which makes for a more comfortable waxing experience.
