Started in 1996, Planet Beach began as a traditional tanning salon that excelled at customer service. Noticing the social and governmental changes headed it’s way in regards to UV-tanning, CEO and Founder Stephen P. Smith came up with the idea of transitioning to an automated spa that gives clients all the services found in a traditional day spa at the push of a button without the need for an attendant.
"Franchisees love that our concept keeps labor costs to a minimum and clients love that they can get in and out in a fraction of the time and money spent at other spas," Smith said. "We have redefined the spa experience and the proven that Planet Beach can offer affordable luxury around the world."
The spa industry is a continually changing business. Rising customer demands have sparked significant increases in revenue and spa visits as consumers make spa services part of their regular personal wellness regimens. Planet Beach pioneered the recipe for success, as it was the first company to challenge the concept of the traditional day spa by introducing fully automated spa services. Planet Beach also offers a membership driven business model with low labor costs and no competition.
"Planet Beach has proven to be a smart business investment for our franchisees as we continue to offer customers what they want - a new, convenient and affordable luxurious way to improve wellness and reduce stress," said Smith. "Our concept has positioned the company for continued success and we expect accelerated growth over the next few years and beyond."
