Hand and Stone Massage Spa

Hand and Stone Massage Spa is a franchise opportunity which begins with the basic concept of providing affordably priced, conveniently located, top quality therapeutic massage services. Hand and Stone is focused on creating and maintaining customer satisfaction. We strive to make customers feel welcomed, pampered and appreciated. This, along with our membership based program, keeps them coming back again and again generating multiple recurring streams for the business owner. We offer a unique approach to proven industry offering the widest range of services and best consumer experience offered by a membership-based massage franchise. This is a largely fragmented industry with only one other national player. We are at a significantly lower price point from a day spa. We are changing the delivery system from an all-day experience at a high-end spa to “affordable & convenient” while still in an upscale environment. We provide the spa experience which an independent who goes to someone’s home can’t offer so there’s no direct competition there either. We are easier to schedule than both of these as well. Our largest national competitor offers a far too sterile experience going so far to intentionally brand themselves as a clinic. They offer only one massage option. We offer a relaxing spa like setting and a menu of services allowing more choice for the consumer and the opportunity to up-sell for the owner. Our performance based compensation program, flexible scheduling and variety of services allows us to effectively recruit employees even in markets where our competition is established. This is a retail opportunity without the headaches of retail. The business generates recurring revenue with our membership based model, there are multiple revenue streams, there are multiple opportunities to up-sell to increase average ticket, and there is very little inventory.

Their modern facilities are compact in stature (2,500 sq. ft.) but are loaded with state-of-the-art exercise equipment without the overhead of a “big box” health club. By going further into neighborhoods where the full service clubs can’t go, they are capitalizing on an underserved market. Clubs are available to members 24-7 through an elaborate key-card and security system, making them safe and convenient. Their track record of success has substantiated that people will forgo the expense of a full-service health club in favor of an affordable, convenient alternative. The company encourages its franchisees to commit to opening 3 clubs over an 18 month time span. A discount in the franchise fee is offered for doing so. The simplicity of the business makes this relatively easy to do.
