Scottsdale Massage Envy recognized for rapid growth

Massage Envy Spa, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, has been named to the Franchise Times’ “Fast and Serious” list for the second consecutive year.  This year, the brand was ranked #16 among 40 top growing brands in the country.

“We’re honored to be named among the ‘Fast and Serious’ companies for the second year in a row,” said Joe Luongo, chief operating officer, Massage Envy Spa. “The growth we achieved in 2014 with the opening of our 1,000th location, expanding the brand’s presence into our 49th state, and reaching $1 billion in system-wide sales has given us momentum as we roll into 2015. It’s exciting to see the company recognized in the industry as a successful brand that continues to grow and thrive, while introducing more people to the benefits of massage and facials.”

The Franchise Times’ “Fast and Serious” list is based on a formula that identifies fast-growing franchise systems that also have staying power. Franchise Times developed a proprietary 10-point formula, including percentage of sales growth, percentage of unit growth, dollar sales growth and numerical unit growth over the past three years, with more weight given to acceleration in years two and three. The Franchise Times’ Top 200 plus 300, the annual ranking of the largest franchise systems by revenue, is used as the database for “Fast and Serious.” The team identified companies with system-wide sales above $40 million, the floor for consideration for the listing.

Today, Massage Envy Spa is the largest system of franchised massage clinics in the industry. The company is also the world’s largest employer of licensed/registered massage therapists with more than 25,000 therapists and estheticians providing over 18 million massages a year to a total of more than 1.5 million members.

Over the next several years, Massage Envy Spa plans to continue to grow across the country and is seeking franchisee candidates who have the ability and the desire to learn and follow a system that values customer service and satisfaction. 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. Depending on the real estate, Massage Envy Spa franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from approximately $412,600 – $938,900, including the franchisee fee.

Massage Envy and the Arthritis Foundation share a common understanding about the devastating effects of the disease on the body and the potential for massage therapy to relieve and control certain symptoms.

Massage Envy Introduces New Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy

Whether it’s your job, the daily grind or an intense workout that causes your feet to feel worn out, the best way to find relief is to give your feet some serious tender, love and care. Beginning today your toes will thank you with the launch of the new Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy, available at any of Valley’s 28 Massage Envy clinics. Ideal for reducing daily stress or the pain and discomfort caused by dry callused skin, a Sugar Foot Scrub treatment can be added to any massage session for only $10 ($15 for guests) as part of Massage Envy Enhanced Therapies menu.

Massage Envy’s partner, Bon Vital, helped formulate the sugar foot scrub exclusively for Massage Envy customers that combine fortified sugar with jojoba, olive and safflower oils, and lavender essential oil. Massage Envy’s specially designed formula contains extra fine sugar granules and less oil than a typical sugar foot scrub, allowing for easier absorption into the skin. The scrub cleans and exfoliates, removes dead skin cells, and soothes the surface of the skin while stimulating lymph flow and increasing circulation. Following the sugar scrub, a whipped Bon Vital Body Butter, which is blended with cocoa butter, Shea butter, beeswax and lavender oil, is also applied to add a hydrating protective layer to the freshly scrubbed skin.

“Our new Sugar Foot Scrub Therapy is perfect to treat tired feet,” said Steve Cook, Massage Envy regional developer for Arizona and Las Vegas. “The winter weather can take a major toll on our feet, but the Sugar Foot Scrub will be sure to smooth away rough spots and drench dry skin to create the ultimate therapeutic massage experience.”

In addition to this new service, all Valley Massage Envy clinics are offering special Valentine’s Day deals for members and guests through Feb. 14. Gift cards for massages and facials make a perfect present for your loved one and Massage Envy is offering specials with the purchase of $50, $75 and $100 gift cards. When you purchase a $50 gift card, you will receive a certificate for a free enhanced therapy, when you purchase a $75 gift card, you will receive a complimentary half-hour upgrade and with the purchase of a $100 gift card, you will receive a free one-hour massage session.

With a membership at Massage Envy, customers can choose from a variety of monthly massage and spa treatments including Swedish, Trigger Point, Deep Tissue, Sports, Prenatal and Geriatric. As part of the revamped Enhanced Therapies menu that includes AromaTherapy, Deep Muscle Therapy and Hot Stone Envy™, the new Sugar Foot Scrub will allow members and guests to further customize and boost their wellness experience. The proven benefits of routine massage include improved circulation, joint flexibility and posture, relief from pain and swelling caused by arthritis, reduced blood pressure, fatigue, migraine pain and stress, as well as improved sleep, concentration and overall sense of well-being.

Additionally, Massage Envy Spa offers facials designed by Dr. Murad, the leader in skincare science. With a monthly membership, customers can choose from four different Murad® Healthy Skin facials including Environmental Shield®Vitamin C, Clarifying Enzyme Acne, Anti-Aging and Sensitive Skin.

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.
