Elements Massage

Elements Massage provides a variety of massage therapy modalities to their clients who are primarily seeking pain relief, stress reduction and an overall wellness benefit. The consumer need is big - most Americans suffer from back pain, other muscle pain and routine stress, which are the primary reasons people seek their first massage.

An appealing aspect for the franchisee is the simple service-based business model that drives revenues through a variety of ways. The core of their model is their “wellness program” that allows the clients to become members and receive a lower price point than non-members and gets them in the habit of regular massage sessions. For the Elements owners, this creates a recurring revenue stream that helps stabilize the business over time.

At Elements Massage, their goal is that their clients leave their studios feeling an increased sense of wellness. Beyond that, they believe in providing opportunities for professional growth for their therapists. By taking care of their clients and therapists, they ensure their success and they will continue to be the premier wellness organization in the world.

  • Hand-crafted, custom, therapeutic massage.
  • Manager- run model
  • No Inventory
  • Membership-based for recurring, predictable revenue
  • Focused Service path: happy employees = happy clients!
  • Established - 10 years franchising and consistent Double Digit same store sales growth, year-over-year.
  • 100+ years combined franchising expertise of WellBiz Brands, Inc. This is a great opportunity to join one of the largest massage concepts.
  • Efficient and beautiful studio design.

Owners do not need extensive industry or business ownership experience to bring the benefits of high-quality, superior massage services to their community. They will provide owners with all the training, support, and tools they need to open the doors of a new Elements studio.



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.

We are surprisingly recession resistant. An increasing number of Americans view massage as necessary therapy, not a luxury item (can back up with articles from CNN and Newsday). Also, Hand and Stone capitalizes on consumer trends which have done well in down economic times dating back to the Great Depression: Tap basic human needs relevant to the times (we provide comfort & human touch); Enable People to Demonstrate Power through Luxuries (we are an affordable luxury at 39.99 introductory price point); Leverage the Quest for Good Old Entertainment (we provide a distraction from daily worries); Capitalize on Down-Trading (someone who was spending hundreds at high end day spa now finds Hand & Stone a less expensive alternative).

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.

Significant revenue is generated from members' automatic Electronic Funds Transfer (EFTs). We are an easy use tenant (no noise, no food, etc) and we attract the desired clientele for the center so property developers love us! There is no food, no spoilage, no employee theft/slippage, little inventory, little cash.

Multiple Revenue Streams: Only franchise in industry offering membership based Massage AND Facials nationwide, recurring membership fees (like a gym but not a gym); non-member massages (with higher pricing); walk in business; gift card sales; retail sales..

Outbound retail. Security of 4 walls but not limited by 4 walls. The business benefits from but is not limited by real estate. An owner can improve & grow the business with community networking to supplement the traffic drawn into the store from marketing efforts and the location.

Lay Bare Waxing Salon

Lay Bare is a global hair removal salon, with 109 locations across the Philippines and now developing in the United States. They are known for “sugaring”—Using all-natural cold wax jelly, made of sugar, honey, and citrus extracts; with exfoliating, moisturizing and whitening properties. Hair removal shouldn’t be hard on the skin, or the budget—And it doesn’t have to be. Their skill, price point, and premium product sets them apart from the competition, providing clients with luxury experience at affordable prices.

Their goal is to shift people’s paradigm of hair removal. In doing this, they want to enhance customers’ confidence by making hair removal a monthly routine, just like a manicure. With pain and money being large reasons much of the population shies away from hair removal, they are up for the task. They aim to take their number one hair removal salon status in the Philippines and make it a reality across the US and beyond, providing the most comfortable and affordable hair removal service in every community.

MY SALON Suite is a true semi-absentee business, with no employees, very few moving parts, which only requires about one day per week to manage once built and leased. You are in the salon industry, but not in the salon business. This is a business-to-business model where you become a landlord to tenants in the health and beauty industry who own and run their own businesses. You need no experience in real estate or in the salon industry.
