MWCN Business Forum

The Manly Bands story is truly one of inspired entrepreneurship. After leaving their careers in Hollywood, Johnathan Ruggiero and Michelle Luchese decided to take on three of the most stressful life events at once: quit their jobs, get married and move across the country, all within 30 days. But call it luck, karma or fate, those decisions served as the impetus and inspiration for them to start their new business, Manly Bands. Michelle and Johnathan founded Manly Bands out of their Florida garage in late 2016. Their first sale happened in November 2016, and business has exploded since then. Manly Bands was recently honored as a MWCN Utah 100 Emerging Elite Company.

Hosted by MWCN Strategic Sponsor CBIZ & MHM.
