Hey everyone! Welcome back! This week, Caleb Talley and Jeff Amerine talk with Peter Joukov, COO and co-founder of inq Tattoos. Husband and wife team, Peter and Maria Joukov, founded inq Tattoos because they saw an unmet need in the market for today’s tattoo customer and a better way to work for today's tattoo artist. Leaning on their military, corporate, and business backgrounds, they created a modern and accessible tattoo experience for the everyday customer and a supportive space for professional artists. In this episode, you will get to hear about the story behind inq Tattoos, how they find the right franchisees, and certain challenges with franchising in different states. Thanks for listening in!
