Planet Beach Spray & Spa is an International Franchise with the Most Recent Location Set to Open in the Republic of Panama

“We know that failing is not an option because of the awesome team that is supporting and guiding us, says Yvonne Kilborn, Master Franchisee in the Republic of Panama”

Planet Beach spray & spa is a unique and innovative membership-based franchising corporation. Founded in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1996 the spa has grown to 175+ locations worldwide. In 2007 Planet Beach decided to expand the concept abroad through the International Master Franchise Program and has awarded the rights to develop the concept in Canada, Egypt, Ireland, Poland, Saudi Arabia, UAE, UK and most recently the Republic of Panama.

Yvonne N. Kilborn and her husband Carlos A. Gonzales along with their business partner Alvaro E. Villanueva decided they wanted to become Masters in the Republic of Panama after discovering the Planet Beach franchise system while attending a franchise expo in Jacksonville, Florida. “We were really sold by the fact that Planet Beach had an innovative and efficient service model. It allows customers to meet their relaxation needs without having to take hours out of their day. We truly admire the consistency in the quality of service and treatments that is made possible by the operation,” said Carlos Gonzales, a business professional with more than 10 years of experience working in Fortune 500 companies.

Knowing that customers are spending over $125 billion a year in the health and wellness arena, the three Masters plan to open eight spas in the greater metropolitan area of Panama City, Panama. The first is scheduled to open in March of 2016. “There was just something about Planet Beach. The value proposition for the customers seemed unbeatable and the financial numbers as a business made sense,” said Yvonne Kilborn.

Now that they are in their first pre-sale, and have already sold 60+ memberships, they can see their dream finally coming true.
