March 04, 2008 // Franchising.com // Plano, Texas – spa*habitat, a leading provider of natural and organic spa services and products, is now offering franchises in selected areas.
The fast-growing spa company, with its flagship location in Plano, Texas, has received rave reviews, including Citysearch's Best Spa in Dallas in 2006 and 2007 (editorial and audience winner), and has been featured in Allure Magazine, D Magazine and other leading publications. The spa's goal is to offer relaxing and pampering spa services using only pure, natural and organic products.
Amy Bohn, founder and COO of spa*habitat, is the visionary behind the concept and believes the company has carved out a real niche within the spa industry. "Look at the labels on some of your skin care products," said Amy. "You will probably find ingredients such as parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, artificial fragrances or artificial colors. Studies have shown that these types of ingredients may cause cancer or have other serious side effects. We don't think you should worry about potentially dangerous ingredients while you are trying to relax with a massage or improve your skin with a facial. Our goal is to truly offer only the purest products possible in every aspect of our business, including our services, products, linens, uniforms, cleaning supplies... everything. Nobody even comes close to the standards that we uphold, and we are so excited about expanding our "green" spa philosophy and helping others embrace the organic beauty industry, while also doing wonderful things for the environment."
"Our organic spa concept has been incredibly popular and well-received by our clients, the media, and industry leaders, and many aspiring entrepreneurs have asked if they could open a spa just like ours in their city," stated Greg Bohn, CEO of spa*habitat. "Due to this strong customer and business demand, we have decided to expand and open additional locations via franchising. We are extremely excited about the opportunity of working with prospective spa owners on building out a successful business, and becoming the clear national leader in the organic spa industry."
All franchisees will receive in-depth training in all aspects of operating spa*habitat location, including site selection, design and layout, human resources, marketing and advertising, vendor relations, guest management, spa protocols, product knowledge, and more.
(Note: spa*habitat has recently undergone a name change. It was formerly called Always at Peace Organic Spa. This is a duplicate press release using the spa's new name.)
