Elements Massage® Announces St. Louis Market Expansion Plans
Fastest-Growing Therapeutic Massage Franchise Brand Sets Sights on Eight New Local Locations
May 26, 2017 // Franchising.com // Highlands Ranch, Colo. – Jeremy Morgan, CEO of Elements Massage® (Elements) – one of the nation’s premier massage therapy brand with approximately 240 locations across the U.S. - has announced expansion plans for the St. Louis-metro area. This announcement comes on the heels of a local Elements Massage in-market seminar geared toward prospective franchise owners held in late April. The brand currently has two suburban Missouri locations in Chesterfield and St. Peters, and is actively pursuing qualified franchise owners to expand its footprint in and around St. Louis, with a total of eight identified trade areas available for select franchise owner candidates.
“Elements Massage is a vibrant, expanding brand with excellent growth potential in the greater St. Louis area,” said Morgan. “Massage therapy is a $12 billion+ industry projected to continue revenue growth at an average rate of 3.6 percent per year through 2020. The industry’s staying power combined with our unparalleled client experience and simple business model, presents a highly attractive opportunity for local entrepreneurs and those interested in owning their own business.”
In 2016, Elements recorded another year of double-digit growth, with revenues up 21 percent year over year. Additionally, same studio average revenue increased by nearly 15 percent system-wide from 2015 to 2016.* The brand’s franchise system added 20 new studios last year and is projecting a total of 30 additional openings this year across the country.
“The brand is well-established nationally and the groundwork has been laid locally,” said Chesterfield resident and Elements franchise owner, Jeff Cox, who is currently planning his second location in Des Peres.“Health and wellness concepts are opening here every day and the massage market here isn’t saturated; there is plenty of opportunity for other franchise owners to get onboard as we increase the local footprint. As a franchisee, the proven roadmap and tools are at my disposal, the business is scalable and there is a built-in model for recurring revenue. We do one thing consistently well - therapeutic massage - and that is what keeps customers coming back and makes Elements Massage a great business to own.”
Elements Massage is actively pursuing franchisees to operate in major markets such asMinneapolis, Central Florida and Philadelphia, in addition to St. Louis. To learn more about Elements Massage® or to inquire about franchise ownership opportunities, please visit www.elementsfranchise.com.
