that’s right! our second 10spot® in minneapolis just opened their doors.
say hello to THE TEN SPOT edina!
kris and her business partner karen own our edina + north loop 10spots® and are slated to open six more – yes, you read that right – they will have an empire of eight 10spots® in the not so distant future.
we asked kris about her life pre-10spot® and what attracted them to the brand. here’s what she had to say:
what was your life before THE TEN SPOT®?
kris: my life for the past 18 years has been doing my very favorite thing – being a mama to my beautiful daughters; lilia (17) and ani (16). beyond that i have spent my entire professional career in retail leadership roles and the past 20+ years in human resources. i left my role as an hr executive at best buy two years ago to find my next adventure. i still get my hr fix by consulting for various companies and helping them to build an extraordinary culture and long term strategies for success.
what do you love about being a 10spot® franchise partner?
kris: i love the challenge of learning a new industry, becoming a part of my community as a small business owner and being an advocate for self care! 10spot® offers me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone yet provides me the chance to use my life experience + passions to build something new along with my “ride or die” best friend, karen. i feel blessed to have found an organization that aligns with my values and is poised to expand. i am ready + excited to be a part of the ride!
and from karen:

finishing up a career in marketing, advertising and pr, working across the us and canada on the greatest brands.
