SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Massage Heights, a leader of professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial services, announced today that two Massage Heights locations in Folsom and Roseville, California have been acquired by new owners. Located at the Palladio Shopping Center at 230 Palladio Pkwy., Suite 1229 in Folsom and at the Nugget Plaza at 761 Pleasant Grove Blvd., Suite 120 in Roseville, the Retreats will now be owned and operated by local franchisees John and Leslie Michaylo, residents of El Dorado Hills.
"John and Leslie Michaylo are a hard-working team that possess the leadership experience and family-oriented business values needed to successfully own and operate a Massage Heights location," said Shane Evans, co-founder and president of Massage Heights. "Our franchise has steadily grown throughout 2016 and we are thrilled to welcome the Michaylos to the Massage Heights family and look forward to their future success as new owners."
Both John and Leslie have extensive backgrounds in corporate America that they will leverage as new franchisees. Prior to joining Massage Heights, John was an attorney and spent several years as a vice president in the engineering industry. Leslie has a Bachelor of Arts in human resources management and previously served as human resources director and safety director.
"As my wife and I began to seek alternative opportunities outside of the corporate business, the opportunity with Massage Heights arose and we couldn't wait to get started," said John. "The family-oriented culture and deep passion to elevate the lives of those around us are values that closely align with ours and we are incredibly eager to bring these locations to life in this part of California."
Both locations are open Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.massageheightsfranchise.com, or call (530) 350-8264.
Massage Heights, which aims to have 300 Retreats open by the end of 2018, plans to develop franchised locations in cities like Denver, Kansas City, Tampa-St. Petersburg, San Diego, Nashville, Knoxville and Las Vegas in 2016. Additionally, Massage Heights is seeking area developers to grow the brand in Sacramento, Los Angeles, Northern Virginia, Nashville, Tampa-St. Petersburg and Salt Lake City.
As part of its nationwide expansion plans, Massage Heights is seeking qualified franchisees and area developers to join its growing brand. Prospective single- and multi-unit franchisees should have $175,000 in liquid assets and minimum $400,000 net worth per location, as well as experience in sales or retail management and managing hourly wage employees. Prospective area representatives should have $375,000 in liquid assets and minimum $600,000 net worth, as well as previous experience in franchising, sales, marketing and operating multiple sites, preferably in the retail, restaurant, hospitality or customer services industries.
In March 2016, Massage Heights announced it established a new brand management and development company, Elevated Brands. In addition to managing and developing Massage Heights, Elevated Brands formed a relationship with the first ultra-premium men's grooming and lifestyle club, The Gents Place, to grow the brand nationally through franchising.
