Massage Heights Signs Agreement to Develop New Retreat in San Antonio, Texas
Husband-and-Wife Team to Open New Location in San Antonio’s Alamo Ranch Neighborhood
August 22, 2018 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Massage Heights, a leader of professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial services, announced today that it has signed a franchise agreement with Tammy and Michael Busch to develop a new Retreat in the Alamo Ranch neighborhood of San Antonio, Texas.
San Antonio natives, the Busches were members of Massage Heights for more than five years before deciding to become franchisees. Tammy worked as a registered nurse for eight years, prior to joining the brand. Her husband, Michael has an extensive background in sales within the IT industry, and currently is a sales manager for an IT company in San Antonio. This is the husband-and-wife team’s first franchise together.
“Michael and I love everything that Massage Heights stands for, and the company culture made us want to go into business for ourselves,” said Tammy Busch. “As a registered nurse, I know the incredible medical benefits that massage therapy can have. I feel that the deep compassion that I’ve developed for others throughout my career, coupled with my husband’s sales and technology background, will be invaluable as we set on this new venture together.”
The brand has continued to identify Texas as a key state for its development, with this newest signing coming on the heels of the franchise agreement inked in San Marcos earlier this year. This year to date, the company has opened three Retreats throughout Texas and currently has nearly 60 Retreats throughout the state in target markets like Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Houston. Massage Heights has development plans for up to 10 new openings for 2018.
“Tammy and Michael’s decision to become Massage Heights franchisees after being members with us for years is a testament to our company’s mission and what we strive to do every single day – to elevate the lives of the people we touch,” said Tim Hicks, senior vice president of franchise operations and development for Massage Heights. “We’re glad to have them join the Massage Heights family and are excited to see how they grow their business using their experiences as members.”
Massage Heights reported over $100 million in revenue and the opening of 14 Retreats nationwide in 2017. This year, the brand is aggressively recruiting single- and multi-unit franchisees to help the brand grow to 200 Retreats nationwide by the end of 2020. Prospective 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. As part of its growth strategy, Massage Heights is targeting franchise development in Nashville, Chicago, St. Louis, South Florida, and Las Vegas.
