Scottsdale-Based Spa810 Announces Franchise Opportunities

Spa810 announced the official launch of the company’s franchising opportunities. The company, which is known locally for it’s unique offering of pain-free laser hair removal, cosmetic laser treatments, facials, and massage in one location as a combined service has begun offering franchises for purchase nationally with the help of Phoenix Global Consulting; a local franchise marketing company. To commemorate this growth in business, they are awarding 3 local veterans the chance to own their own franchise without paying the initial licensing fee of $45,000.

Spa810 was the brainchild of Tim and Kanna Reilly of Scottsdale. Tim, a licensed chiropractor, and Kanna, a healthcare sales and marketing executive with over 15 years experience opened their first concept in North Scottsdale in 2007. Beginning with the first offering in the Valley of “truly painless” laser hair removal, they expanded the offerings of the spa to include massage and facials and offered client’s a subscription model that would help them maintain their well-being by coming in monthly.

Operating as Body Solutions Laser, Skin & Massage they offered a no-nonsense pricing model that included many “extras” that other places charge for, such as eyebrow waxing, for free as part of a facial.

“Our passion for beauty and health goes far beyond looking beautiful” says Tim Reilly. “We believe that things like monthly facials and massages are truly important to overall health and wanted to provide an easy to budget, easy to access place for women to take care of themselves.”

Part of spa810’s expansion will include the offering of 3 free franchises to a local veteran. Spa810 Corporate will be accepting applications from qualified veterans who are interested in opening a spa810 franchise. The company who is in charge of marketing the spa810 franchise will be waiving the $45,000.00 Franchise Fee. Those interested in applying for a franchise can email resumes to franchiseinfo@spa810.com, or mail resumes to spa810 corporate 7950 E. Redfield Road, STE # 280, Scottsdale, AZ. 85260.

Valley-based HomeSmart Continues to Expand Nationwide

Last month, real ehttp://azbigmedia.com/wp-admin/post-new.phpstate brokerage firm HomeSmart International opened an 800 agent franchise in Denver, Colorado. The nationwide company based in Phoenix, Arizona recently began franchising by offering one of the most attractive business models in the real estate industry, with a focus on increasing their level of realtor knowledge and attentiveness to customer service.

Since opening in January 2000, HomeSmart has had tremendous success by growing to over 6,500 agents. Such unparalleled growth has catapulted HomeSmart to rank as the largest real estate brokerage in the Southwestern United States and among the top five brokerages in the country based on the number of agents.

Denver franchise owner Brad Smith has more than 30 years in the real estate business. Smith felt that affiliating his concept, Home Real Estate, with HomeSmart International was the best way to take his business to the next level. The franchise operates as HomeSmart Realty Group and has offices in Centennial, Lakewood and Westminster.

“Following an extensive international search to provide our agents with the right tools, technology and support systems they need, we are proud to say our partnership in franchising with HomeSmart International delivers just that and more to our agents,” said Brad Smith, franchise owner of HomeSmart Realty Group. “Our agents and their customers will truly benefit with this Smart move!”

HomeSmart emphasizes the importance of being aware of client needs and exceeding their expectations, which in turn builds strong relationships with the buyers and sellers in every market. HomeSmart’s proprietary software also puts its franchise partners ahead of the curve. Created by Founder and Chairman Matt Widdows and his development team, the reputable systems are proven to save business owners huge costs attributed to web hosting, lead generation and back office systems. This allows the franchise owners to provide the technology to their agents for free while allowing them to keep 100 percent of their commissions. Other advantages to HomeSmart’s franchise program include a virtual receptionist, generous fee structure, and a full suite of branding and marketing products.

“It is with great excitement that we announce the move to join forces with Home Real Estate, Brad Smith and over 800 tremendous agents servicing clients in the Greater Denver area,” said HomeSmart International CEO and President Chuck Lemire. “HomeSmart has built its reputation on exceptional customer service with our unique franchise package that gives our brokers and agents a competitive advantage in this industry.”

Earlier this year, HomeSmart launched a number of franchises in California, Arizona, Utah and now Colorado, and will soon be operating in six states. The brokerage also has international operations in Beijing, China. Their goal is to open franchises in the top metropolitan cities across the United States.
