Findley Will Use Her Experience to Expand the Eco-Friendly Franchise
Carisa Findley is the new president of freecoat nails, a non-toxic nail and beauty franchise. Findley, who is also an author and motivational speaker, will oversee the growth of the eco-friendly nail business as it continues to grow.
“Franchising is so much more than a job or industry to me,” Findley said. “I was introduced to the importance of franchising and small business ownership at the age of three when my parents launched a franchise cleaning brand. Since then, I have been around it and learned very early how franchises can help people thrive in businesses they are passionate about.”
The leadership team at freecoat is excited to have Findley on board. “Kat and I are super excited and proud to welcome Carisa to the freecoat family. freecoat is a special brand that has attracted the attention of younger entrepreneurs looking for small business ownership, and Carisa’s dynamic energy, attitude, and leadership will certainly shine through this next, enthusing new chapter in the freecoat story,” said Landon Eckles, co-founder and CEO of freecoat nails and Clean Juice.

Findley is an experienced franchise executive who began her career at Curves International, a fitness brand for women. At Curves, she focused on the brand’s training and operations. She has also worked to expand Xtend Barre, a barre-based, boutique fitness franchise.
After living abroad, Findley came back to the U.S. and became the vice president of learning and senior director of operations and training at Elements Massage. Findley’s passions are for business development and health and wellness. She also co-authored the best-selling book “Success” with Jack Canfield.

An Eco-Friendly Nail Brand
Co-founded by Landon and Kat Eckles in 2017, freecoat nails provides a safe, toxic-free environment and positive beauty experience. “The beauty product industry is highly unregulated and oftentimes, consumers can be misled or confused about what chemicals are being used on them or what they are exposed to,” said Kat Eckles. “freecoat was created out of necessity to provide a healthy, toxin-free environment for men, women, and children to safely get their nails done in an unparalleled luxurious experience.”
freecoat nails doesn’t use the toxic chemicals found in traditional nail salons. These include dibutyl phthalate, xylene, triphenyl phosphate, and camphor. According to the Center for Disease Control, these chemicals are linked to headaches and respiratory issues. Long-term effects of these chemicals include fatigue, reproductive issues, and lung disease.
