November 09, 2016 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO - Massage Heights, a leader of professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial services, announced today its newest location in Cypress, Texas, is launching the rollout of the brand's new Retreat design. The new Retreat is now open and is located at 9935 Barker Cypress Road, Suite 135. This news comes on the heals of Massage Heights' brand refresh announced earlier this year, which is part of the company's commitment to provide its guests with a consistently elevated experience.
"Massage Heights has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years and as we further propel our brand's presence nationwide, we needed to refresh our look to match the company's evolution. While we continue to make improvements to enhance the experience for our customers, one thing that's remained consistent is our unwavering commitment to help people live a healthy and balanced life," said Shane Evans, co-founder and president of Massage Heights. "Our new Retreat was designed with our guests' needs in mind. We want them to feel relaxed and stress-free from the moment they walk in, and we're confident that the new look and layout will help them instantly feel a sense of inner peace. We look forward to rolling out the redesign system-wide and continuing to be an advocate for a healthy lifestyle for our guests."
The new Retreat showcases a more contemporary design with a natural, soft color palate and wood tones to provide guests with a peaceful atmosphere. The updated layout creates a natural flow for a full experience from initial in-take to checkout, with relaxation and retail areas split into separate spaces within the Retreat. This allows therapists and team members to interact with their guests on a one-on-one basis and make each experience unique to the individual. Redesigned Retreats also have various aromas strategically placed throughout that trigger stress relief and relaxation.
"I've been a Massage Heights franchisee for three years and have loved bringing a high-quality massage and facial experience to my community since opening my first location in 2013. I'm thrilled that my newest Retreat will be the first to open with the new design, and am eager to welcome new customers to the extended Massage Heights family," said Travis Ochoa, Massage Heights franchisee. "While I've always known this to be true, I believe the upgraded look will further prove that Massage Heights can provide an up-scale, luxurious experience at an affordable price. My new location in Cypress will be the fourth Retreat in my Massage Heights portfolio, and I'm honored to be a part of such an incredible and growing brand that impacts the lives of those we touch each and every day."
Massage Heights' redesign will aid in catapulting the brand into the next phase of life, and has set a goal to complete the transition system-wide by the end of next year. The company is on target to open 40 locations this year and aims to have 300 Retreats open by the end of 2018. As part of its accelerated growth strategy, the brand plans to develop franchised locations in cities like Denver, Kansas City, Tampa-St. Petersburg, San Diego, Nashville, Knoxville and Las Vegas in 2016. Additionally, Massage Heights is seeking area developers to grow the brand in Sacramento, Los Angeles, Northern Virginia, Nashville, Tampa-St. Petersburg and Salt Lake City.
As part of its nationwide expansion plans, Massage Heights is seeking qualified franchisees and area developers to join its growing brand. Prospective single- and multi-unit franchisees should have $175,000 in liquid assets and minimum $400,000 net worth per location, as well as experience in sales or retail management and managing hourly wage employees. Prospective area representatives should have $375,000 in liquid assets and minimum $600,000 net worth, as well as previous experience in franchising, sales, marketing and operating multiple sites, preferably in the retail, restaurant, hospitality or customer services industries.
In March 2016, Massage Heights announced it established a new brand management and development company, Elevated Brands. In addition to managing and developing Massage Heights, Elevated Brands formed a relationship with the first ultra-premium men's grooming and lifestyle club, The Gents Place, to grow the brand nationally through franchising.
