The massage industry is exploding with 200 percent growth in the past decade. Combined with the overall health and wellness market, it has never been a better time to get started in the massage industry. Learn how you can find success with the massage industry.
Massage Industry Demand
The demand for massage franchise services is growing faster than ever. The spa franchise industry is mainstream, stable, and growing rapidly. According to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), the massage therapy industry is an $18 billion industry and only continues to grow. According to the AMTA consumer survey, an average of 21 percent of adult Americans received at least one massage in a spa in the last year.
Spa Massage Industry Growth
Spas are where most people receive massage. In fact, 30 percent of those surveyed by AMTA say they had their last massage at a spa. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for massage therapists is expected to grow 22 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than average for all occupations.
The reasons consumers are turning to massage therapy franchises are also expanding. According to the AMTA Consumer Survey, more people are recognizing the importance of massage therapy for overall health.
The survey reveals that 54 percent of adult Americans have used massage therapy for pain relief; 92 percent of people surveyed agreed that massage therapy could be effective in pain reduction; 85 percent of people surveyed agreed that massage therapy could be beneficial to health and stress relief.
The Massage Franchise Market
In addition to single unit franchises, MassageLuXe also offers Multi-Unit Development Agreements (MUDs) to qualified, experienced individuals. For an initial franchise development fee, Multi-Unit Developers are granted exclusive franchise development rights to a specific number of franchise units within a defined territory.
Your territory is based on various market and economic conditions including population, household earnings and other demographic criteria. The minimum MUD agreement is for three (3) units.
Multi-Unit MassageLuXe Franchise Fee
There are benefits when you commit to develop multiple spas and grow the MassageLuXe brand within a specific trade area. In exchange for a multi-unit commitment, the franchisee receives a reduction on the initial franchise fee on their second and third locations. This discount assists in expediting the development of the designated market.
Multi-Unit Developers must demonstrate:
• Prior successful business experience (preferably in sales, operations, or multi-unit ownership)
• Minimum liquidity of $250,000 and a net worth of at least $700,000
