Massage Heights Announces Aggressive Franchise Expansion

Massage Heights, a leader of professional, affordable and convenient therapeutic massage and facial services, announced today its aggressive, nationwide franchise expansion plans after reporting $86.4 million in systemwide revenue and opening nearly two dozen Retreats in 2015.

"We've posted an incredible 82 percent growth rate over the last three years due to the increasing demand for resort-quality massage and skin care services at an affordable price," said Shane Evans, co-founder and president of Massage Heights, which currently operates more than 130 Retreats across the U.S. and in Canada. "Because of our dedicated franchisees, Massage Heights is more than just a place people go to treat a temporary problem — we're part of their ongoing routine to help them live a healthy and balanced lifestyle."

According to a 2014 industry report, revenue from massage franchises is expected to increase annually by 3.4 percent and reach $3.2 billion by the end of 2019, up from the industry's current $2.7 billion annual revenue.* Capitalizing on this trend, Massage Heights 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.
