Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa Debuts New Headquarters in Pennsylvania

Massage and skin care franchise wraps up 2015 with more than 250 spas, taking next steps in expansion plans for 2016.

TREVOSE, PA. (PRWEB) March 22, 2016 - Following a record-breaking year in 2015, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa (Hand & Stone), the nation’s fastest growing massage and skin care franchise, celebrated the opening of the company’s new corporate headquarters in Trevose, Pa. in the Northbrook Office Center. To celebrate the new move, Hand & Stone hosted an open house and ribbon cutting event on February 24, 2016.

Hand & Stone started 2016 with 256 open spas in the U.S. and Canada, up from 194 at the start of 2015, and is already pacing ahead of 2015 for revenue growth. The brand has quickly branched out beyond its East Coast strongholds and tapped into new markets in 2015 including San Antonio, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Nashville and Atlanta. Over the course of 2016, Hand & Stone expects to open another 69 locations, including additional new markets like Kansas City, Fresno, Manhattan and Colorado Springs. With the new company headquarters and continued growth of the brand, Hand & Stone also plans to hire 10 new corporate employees in 2016.

“At Hand & Stone, creating a class leading brand is our top priority,” said Todd Leff, President and CEO of Hand & Stone. “Our new corporate headquarters will give us the opportunity to show our franchisees, brand partners and employees how much we appreciate their professionalism and hard work while also positioning the company for further growth and productivity.”

Hand & Stone’s commitment to creating an environment that makes guests feel as comfortable as possible when they walk through the spa doors has carried over to the corporate office. The new 7,200 square foot space was designed by Mike Howley, Partner at XL Builders in Wayne, Pa. and includes a 935 square foot training facility outfitted as a spa, 15 offices, 27 workstations and two large conference rooms. The company opened its doors to franchisees, partners and the media during the open house and ribbon cutting event.

“I have a special affinity to Bensalem Township and the surrounding community, as I went to high school in the area,” said Leff. “As our brand continues to grow and transform, I look forward to expanding the team at our collaborative new office, increasing the support team for our franchisees and continuing the incredible growth we’ve seen at Hand & Stone.”

Hand & Stone surpassed $185 million in system wide sales for 2015, up from $125 million in 2014, fueled by strong comparable store sales and new unit growth. In 2015 the Hand & Stone system achieved another year of 20 percent plus comparable store growth, the fourth straight year of comparable sales growth in excess of 20 percent. The new headquarters will help the brand continue on its mission to expand throughout the U.S. during 2016, offering clients a chance to add regular massages and facials to their wellness routines at a price that’s more affordable and with locations that are more convenient than traditional day spas.
