    Debi Lane Founder & CEO

    LunchboxWax CEO Debi Lane showed her entrepreneurial mettle as early as 19, when she opened up her own travel agency. Since that time, she has worked in international sales and marketing and has owned and operated a variety of successful businesses in travel and tourism, recruiting and for the past decade, in the day spa and waxing industry. Now, thanks to Debi’s vision, persistence and resilience, waxing is no longer an after-thought or an add-on at salons and spas. Instead, this self-made entrepreneur channeled her acute business sense and perfected her unique speed-waxing technique to create a chic salon concept devoted singly to the art of waxing. Debi opened her first LunchboxWax in Boise, Idaho, in 2010, quickly followed by two other Idaho salons in Ketchum/Sun Valley and Eagle. With a head-turning brand and industry-revolutionizing vision in tow, she launched the LunchboxWax franchise concept in 2013 to offer an empowering business model for other like-minded entrepreneurs who want the freedom of owning a business with the support of proven knowledge and resources.

    Natalie Dobbs Executive Assistant to CEO

    Independent and curious to the core, Natalie’s fondest childhood memories are of roaming her Idaho neighborhood with her six siblings. Her strong work ethic and her strong organizational and management skills came into play early when, as a swim teacher in her teens, she was coordinating class schedules, creating curriculum and learning to work with different personalities. Fast forward a few decades and after college, Natalie found herself working for law firms in California and Texas, assisting in various areas of law, including real estate, probate, estate planning and corporate law, and also co-owned and managed a real estate appraisal business. Natalie eventually found her way back to Boise, and most recently worked as a project manager for digital agency. The stars aligned, and now LunchboxWax Founder + CEO Debi Lane has the honor and pleasure of having Natalie by her side to assist in the daunting-but-exciting schedule befitting the leader of a thriving, young franchise.

    New places, new people. That’s Jinell’s thing, thanks to her family’s perpetual (and contagious) travel bug she caught at an early age.

Through it all, this tenet remains true: Jinell believes learning should be fun, and she believes it still as she empowers LunchboxWax waxologists to grow their own “business within the business.”
