Company Massage Envy Franchising, LLC Opens Its 700th Clinic. National Leader of Massage and Spa Services Franchise
Has Opened 45 Clinics Since January 1st.
Scottsdale, Ariz. (October 2011) – Massage Envy Franchising, LLC -- the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services -- announced today it has opened its 700th clinic in the U.S., bringing the total number of openings this year to 45 and surpassing the number of openings in 2010. With 70 franchises
sold in 2011 thus far, additional openings are expected before year end.
"Opening our 700th Massage Envy location marks a significant milestone for the brand. In just nine years, we’ve brought affordable, high-quality massage and wellness services to 700 communities in 44 states,” said Dave Crisalli, President and COO of Massage Envy Franchising, LLC. “Our growth story continues and it speaks to the brand’s reputation for consistently delivering superior service and value to our members and guests, as well as profitability and success to our franchise
The 700th clinic is a Massage Envy Spa located at 1686 Hill Road North in Pickerington, Ohio. It is owned by Chad Warner and Heather Gray, who also own three additional Massage Envy clinics in Columbus (Bethel Road), Gahanna and Westerville, Ohio. The Pickerington clinic opened its doors on September 20th, but will have an official grand opening in October. With the addition of the Pickerington clinic, this brings the number of Massage Envy locations in Ohio to 19.
“We had no idea our Pickerington location would be the 700th Massage Envy clinic to open. It was very exciting news,” said Warner, who became a franchisee in 2007. “The Pickerington location has been anticipated within the community, because we have many current members and prospective members who reside in the area. In the few days since opening the Pickerington location, we’ve already seen a steady flow of new and existing members,” he added.
Massage Envy also recently marked another milestone when it opened a Massage Envy Spa in Sioux Falls, South Dakota – the 44th state in which the brand has established a presence. In addition, Massage Envy recently signed a new multi-unit regional development agreement in Alaska with Gregg and Debbie Olsen. As the largest system of massage franchise
clinics in the industry, Massage Envy’s average unit volume surpassed $1 million this year and the company experienced year-over-year growth of 25 percent.
To fuel additional growth, the company is looking for specific franchisee candidates who have the ability and the desire to learn and follow a system that ensures value and customer satisfaction. Qualified franchisee candidates should have business sales or management experience, but do not need to have a massage therapy or spa operations background. They also should possess a minimum net worth of $500,000 and liquid assets of at least $150,000. Massage Envy and Massage Envy Spa franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $343,000 to $568,000, including the franchisee fee.

The company only employs licensed, registered and certified massage therapists who are trained to provide a variety of therapeutic massage treatments. Open seven days a week, each Massage Envy offers convenient times and locations.
