STATE COLLEGE, Pa., March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Passionate about helping others feel their best? Massage Envy, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient massage therapy and skincare services, is actively looking for a franchise partner to expand the company's franchise network into the State College, Pennsylvania market.
With the health and wellness boom, consumer attitudes and behaviors have shifted to take a more proactive approach about their well-being, spending between $12-13 billion annually on massage therapy. In 2002, Massage Envy pioneered the membership-based, recurring-revenue massage model and has been the industry leader ever since. It is now one of the fastest growing franchises, expanding its presence across the US and internationally.
The time is ripe for an entrepreneur looking for a new business opportunity to franchise a Massage Envy location in State College. This is a first-to-market opportunity in an area where there are no direct competitors and where the wellness sector continues to grow. Built on the foundation of helping people feel their best, Massage Envy believes that massage and skincare aren't a luxury; they're a necessary part of body maintenance and an integral part of total body wellness.
"The demographic makeup of State College residents, along with the Massage Envy brand's 99 percent success rate, present a great business opportunity for someone looking to own their own business," said Sol Glastein, regional developer for Massage Envy. "Massage Envy makes massage and skincare more accessible and affordable through a membership model allowing for regular, routine body care. This accessibility paired with our sophisticated real estate analytical tool indicates that State College is a franchise location primed for success."
Massage Envy is the largest system of franchised massage locations in the nation with 1,160 locations in 49 states. The franchise brand consistently ranks high on prominent franchise rankings lists, including 17th on the 2017 Entrepreneur 500 list and 7th on Forbes' 2016 Best Franchises to Buy, and positions franchisees for success by providing the support needed to build a profitable massage and skincare business and strong brand identity.
"While the Massage Envy brand has more than a decade of success, it continues to fine-tune its strategies and processes through an industry-leading management team," said Rick Howard, director of franchise sales at Massage Envy. "Massage Envy strives to ensure the highest standard of operations to maximize sales and profitability, including building strong partnerships within the industry."
