December 19, 2014 // Franchising.com // San Antonio, Texas - Massage Heights continues on its current growth trajectory with the opening of the 118th Retreat this week in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, the 18th location to open this year and the second in the state. The San Antonio based franchisor has been focused on new expansion deals across the country with franchisee groups like the one in Denver. The three Strategic-partners of SBH group are practically Denver natives with each graduating from a Colorado college and residing in the Denver Metro area for 30+ years. They worked together as small business Agency Owners and Executives with a large national multi-line insurance company prior to opening their first Massage Heights franchise this week. Another group has a location in development in Fort Collins and the Massage Heights corporate development team anticipates an additional eight Retreats in the Denver market over the next year.
The SBH partners value family along with an active and healthy lifestyle so when they were researching business opportunities with Massage Heights they recognized the alignment with the brand's core values and knew it was a perfect fit. "We are excited to bring Massage Heights to the South Denver Market as we know that the vast majority of residents enjoy living an active, healthy, and balanced lifestyle; the Massage Heights value proposition aligns perfectly. We are opening our first location in the heart of the vibrant Highlands Ranch community with plans for future locations spread throughout the Denver Metro area." said Shannon Holtman, SBH Group and Massage Heights Strategic-partner.
"We are excited about the growth that we have seen this year and with the opportunity that the Denver market represents for Massage Heights," said Bret Franson, Director of Franchise Development. "We are targeting the Littleton, Englewood, Lakewood, Arvada, Centennial, Boulder, Broomfield and Westminster communities for development and will be launching an open house series in the first quarter of 2015 to bring qualified candidates together face to face with our leadership team," said Franson.
This new growth in the Denver market will create an additional 300 new jobs and generate approximately $8.5 million dollars gross in economic impact to the local economy. This achievement comes not only as the company celebrated its 10th anniversary in April, 2014 but also follows a recent appearance by the company's COO and co-Founder Shane Evans on CBS' hit reality series, Undercover Boss.
