Scottsdale, Ariz. (September 10, 2012) – Massage Envy, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, today announced the opening of its 800th clinic in Walpole, Mass. This milestone is just the latest achievement for the company currently celebrating its 10th anniversary and an impressive year of growth. To date, Massage Envy has opened 58 new clinics and sold 148 new franchises in 2012.
"The overall strength of the Massage Envy brand and the deep commitment and focus of our franchise partners have resulted in another high performance year. We're thrilled for their success," said Massage Envy President and CEO Dave Crisalli. "With the opening of our 800th clinic, our franchisee Luke Ansty symbolizes the power of franchising, as does our entire brand, which is focused on enriching the lives of members and guests in the communities they serve. Our sharp focus continues around the mission of getting these wonderful wellness products within reach of more and more Americans."
The newest community on a pathway to health and wellness through Massage Envy is Walpole, Mass., just south of Boston. This week, Massage Envy franchisee Luke Ansty opened the 800th clinic at 102 Providence Highway, Walpole, MA 02032.
"We were excited to learn that our clinic was the 800th Massage Envy location to open in the U.S., as it's quite a milestone for the company," said Ansty. "We've been welcomed to Walpole with open arms and look forward to enriching the lives of our guests and members through massage and spa services."
There are 800 Massage Envy and Massage Envy Spa locations operating in 45 states, making it the largest system of franchised massage clinics in the industry. Innovation has been at the heart of Massage Envy since its inception in 2002, and the company continues to deliver on its mission to provide a pathway to wellness, well-being and worth through massage and skin care services. Massage Envy is the world's largest employer of licensed/registered massage therapists with more than 18,000 therapists providing over 300,000 massages every week to a total of more than 1.2 million members.
In 2007, the company launched Massage Envy Spa to offer affordable, healthy skincare beyond traditional massage therapy. Massage Envy established an exclusive partnership with global skincare leader Murad®. With Murad, Massage Envy Spa customers benefit from facials and skincare products designed by one of the world's foremost leaders in skin health.
Over the next several years, Massage Envy is seeking to expand across the country with Massage Envy Spa leading the way in these development goals. To fuel this 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 necessarily 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 $352,000 – $569,000, including the franchisee fee.
