SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - June 4, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Massage Envy Spa, the pioneer and national leader of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, announced today plans to expand in Iowa. Massage Envy Spa is seeking franchisees in the areas of Des Moines and Iowa City to develop four to five new clinics over the next several years. There are currently six clinics open in Iowa and Nebraska, and four additional locations are scheduled to open within the next 12 months.
"As we continue to expand across Iowa and Nebraska, we are looking for entrepreneurs who want to start their own business with the support of a rewarding business model," said Chad Fitzgerald , Massage Envy Spa regional developer for Iowa/Nebraska. "Very few businesses offer the opportunity to see instant results – with Massage Envy Spa, we can change lives in an hour. To see how our client's lives have been improved by their session is infinitely rewarding."
Chad Fitzgerald and his father, Joe Fitzgerald , have been developing the region since 2005. They currently own and operate two Massage Envy Spa locations in Clive, Iowa and Prairie Village, Kansas. To further fuel expansion in Iowa and Nebraska, the Fitzgerald's are actively seeking qualified franchisees in the region who want to build a strong business with a proven model that promotes health and wellness.

Over the next several years, Massage Envy Spa is seeking to expand across the country. 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.

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 $331,485 – $825,623, including the franchisee fee.
