(PRESS RELEASE) DALLAS, TX — My Eyelab, a retail brand of Now Optics, is gearing up for expansion in the Austin and Dallas markets. This growth plan comes after a signed agreement from the end of 2020 with a trio of new franchisees looking to grow the brand in these two markets. The franchisees, Arash Ghanbari, Victor Mankrious, and Sameh Bekhit plan to open eight locations over the next three years with four in each market. Their first location is set to open in Dallas in August 2021, shortly followed by two more stores in Austin.

These franchisees have a unique portfolio of experience, having worked in mechanical engineering, research and development, dentistry and entrepreneurship. Ghanbari and Mankrious are mechanical engineers, equipping them to handle operations and the financial aspects of running their My Eyelab locations. Additionally, Mankrious and his wife have owned and operated a small pharmacy for the past five years. Bekhit is a dentist who owns and operates multiple dental practices. With this background in small business ownership, he will lead oversight of the operations.
