HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - When native Texan Diana Jenkins told her New Hampshire-based daughter about the health benefits of a professional massage, she had no idea that ownership of a Massage Heights franchise was in their collective future. Today, Jenkins and her daughter Amy Calandra are both Strategic Partners of Massage Heights retreats in The Woodlands, Texas (north of Houston) and Bedford, New Hampshire, respectively. Additionally, Mrs. Calandra serves as the Massage Heights Area Developer for the Northeast Region.
"My mother discovered Massage Heights several years ago," says Mrs. Calandra, "and she suggested that I explore the franchise as a business opportunity. We were both drawn to the operation's high standards and membership-based marketing approach, but at that time, there were no franchise locations available in her area. "
That all changed last year, when the Massage Heights The Woodlands at Alden Bridge retreat came up for option. Diana Jenkins and her husband Jack decided to come out of retirement to assume control of The Woodlands enterprise which originally opened in 2008.
"We're very excited about the improvements we're making," observes Mrs. Jenkins, a former homemaker who has become an integral part of the day-to-day operations. "Our members can expect to see upgrades in everything from the quality of our linens to the efficiency of our scheduling procedures. Our guests will be served quickly, but with that special touch of luxury that says we pay attention to the details and care about delivering a massage experience that is as relaxing as it is luxurious."
Mrs. Jenkins and her husband, a retired railroad executive, make their home in Conroe, Texas, and now join a Massage Heights Houston entrepreneurial collective that includes thirteen individually-owned retreats. Massage Heights The Woodlands at Alden Bridge is located at 8021 Research Forest, Suite A, The Woodlands, TX 77382-1488. Visit www.MassageHeightsHouston.com.
