PALM SPRINGS, Fla. -- My Eyelab, a retail brand of Now Optics, announced today it has signed multiple agreements which will bring four new franchise stores to Flint, MI; Chattanooga, TN; Greenville, TX; and Newport News, VA. Growth in the coming months will be fueled by two new investor duos joining the brand: Piyush Anam and Hetal Gandhi who are opening a new store in Michigan; and Ibrahim and Tenin Sangare who are opening a store in Texas. New store deals were also inked by current franchisees Sadiq and Karim Notta, along with Forrest and Brandon Hull, who are expanding their number of units.
