Cultivating the atmosphere of relaxation and community into the nail salon was Jane Park’s goal for Julep. The former Starbucks executive sought inspiration for her enterprise in the coffee chain’s culture of the “third place” between home and work. “I appreciated the space that Starbucks provided for people to get together,” she recalls. Park felt that element was missing at the nail salons in the Emerald City and ventured to fill that void with the four locations she’s since opened in the Julep chain.
