MassageLuXe Franchisee Opens Spa to Help Fund Kids’ College and Early Retirement
Growing Day Spa Franchise Spotlights a Father Investing in His Family’s Future
October 13, 2021 // Franchising.com // OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS - Rahul Patel is a smart entrepreneur with an eye for great investments. With two young children, 7-year-old daughter Drishti and 2-year-old son Veer, Rahul was researching opportunities that could help fund his children’s college and his and his wife’s retirement down the road. Rahul says he didn’t have to look far to find his answer, “My wife has been getting massages for years and loves it. So, I decided to venture into massage and wellness.”
The more Rahul studied MassageLuXe franchise ownership, the more he liked the opportunity to open his own spa in Overland Park, Kansas. “This is a fantastic company. It allows me great flexibility as a franchise owner,” Rahul says. “We get the best of both worlds. My wife and I still work our full-time jobs and enjoy all the benefits of business ownership. With our children being so young, we love spending time with them, and our dog, Rami. We’ve been able to define how active we are in our location and work accordingly, based on our hectic schedules.”
Currently, Rahul is an I.T. professional and his wife works in healthcare, but because he loves the MassageLuXe franchise model so much, his career path may change. “I may decide I’d like to step away from my consulting job and focus on our spa business. That’s why I like this brand so much, there is room for growth and expansion.”
In fact, MassageLuXe is enjoying tremendous growth in the premier day spa industry by providing a unique membership opportunity that allows customers to enjoy the highest quality massages, facials, and waxing services at affordable prices.
MassageLuXe offers unmatched training and support to franchisees to help them succeed. The MassageLuXe franchise model was especially impressive to Rahul, who’s owned and managed other franchises. “I felt like I already had a strong business background, but I was impressed by the training and support, and I felt well-prepared as we opened the doors to customers.”
His Overland Park MassageLuXe location has fit right into the community that surrounds it, and he and the spa's massage therapists have enjoyed positive community feedback.
“I did not initially realize how much this was going to help the community,” says Rahul. “Clients thank me for their experience. Many of our guests get massage for the health and wellness benefits. They may suffer with chronic back pain or anxiety, and our spa experience provides the holistic self-care they need. I’m humbled that my business is helping make people’s lives better. That has been rewarding.”
MassageLuXe franchisees open their shops for any number of reasons. For Rahul, it’s the long-term financial goals that motivate him. “Not only do I want to put my kids through college, debt free, but I also want the flexibility for my wife and I to retire early and enjoy our time as a family. Plus, my wife really wants a beach house, and you know, happy wife-happy life!”
