PHOENIX, Tuesday, September 28th, 2021 – From women-made products to women-focused services, PROSE Nails, the fastest-growing nail salon franchise in the world, is providing a platform for female entrepreneurship in the beauty industry.

Kat Gilbertson, a Minnesota-based PROSE franchisee and female entrepreneur, is excelling within the PROSE system and paving the way for women leaders throughout the region and country.

“I knew this industry needed disrupting. My business skills matched with a PROSE franchise system is my dream.” Kat says. “We are excited to change the nail industry and I welcome all women to join me in the PROSE system and build their own business.”

In October 2021, Kat is opening her first PROSE Nails location in Eden Prairie. But she isn’t stopping with one location. She has purchased four more PROSE franchise locations, with the next salon to open in Edina, Minnesota.

“Kat is one of many ambitious franchisees we’re proud to call members of the PROSE Nails family,” says Lisa Williams, VP of Retail + Innovation at PROSE and a female entrepreneur herself. “We curate beautiful women partnerships, brands, and private label products that are clean, healthy + beautiful for our members and guests. We have a scalable brand and one that welcomes all female business leaders.”

A trailblazer in Georgia, Emily Ebsworth, is co-owner of the Atlanta Midtown location and will soon open Sandy Springs in January 2022.

“The pillars of the PROSE concept include the very best people, the very best products (most of which are women created and owned), a nourishing environment, and a belief in creating healthy habits for our members and guests,” says Ebsworth.
