Based in Dallas, Texas, Stephanie Mathews is an entrepreneur and franchise owner of The Rustic Brush, an author and passionate volunteer.
Becoming a business owner wasn’t always in her plan. It was something her husband was interested in, and he expressed wanting to purchase a SubWay franchise. However, Stephanie’s passions didn’t lie in making sandwiches, and she knew she couldn’t successfully run a business she wasn’t passionate about. She discovered The Rustic Brush while searching for a fun activity to do with her college friends. She thought it seemed like a great way to spend time with others while getting to express your creativity, but was disappointed to learn there weren’t any locations near her. When she saw that the business was selling franchises, it seemed like the perfect opportunity, and Stephanie and her husband decided to take the chance.
