Susan Aflak, 33, was working punishing hours as an investment banker when a trip down to a lunch truck gave her an idea. If lunch could be delivered quickly and easily to her Los Angeles, US, office, why couldn’t a manicure?
That light bulb moment inspired her to quit her job in finance and launch La Lacquerie, an on-demand mobile anicure truck catering to time-short professionals in need of a quick fix. Based in San Francisco, US, a company can call to book the truck to park outside its office. La Lacquerie then pulls up curbside, and opens to employees or passersby. La Lacquerie is now regularly parked outside the offices of Google, Gap, Facebook, EA and YouTube.
