New Orleans CityBusiness Recognizes Planet Beach Day Spa Franchise as One of “Top 100 Private Companies”Featured, Franchise News
American Registry also honored Planet Beach in the “Registry of Business Excellence.”
New Orleans CityBusiness, a weekly business newspaper, has recognized Planet Beach as one of its “Top 100 Private Companies” in the New Orleans area.
Planet Beach Franchising Corporation, based in Marrero, La., has grown its franchise system and become established as the largest day spa franchise in the nation. In addition, Planet Beach has opened franchise operations in several foreign countries, including Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
American Registry, a company that recognizes top-performing businesses, also included Planet Beach in its 2011 “Registry of Business Excellence.”
“This is quite an honor for us. The fact that New Orleans CityBusiness included Planet Beach in its selection of Top 100 Private Companies signals that our constant efforts towards business excellence are paying off,” said Troy Wise, Planet Beach’s franchise marketing director. “We are proud to be included in this recognition.”
Planet Beach’s inclusion on the list reflects the growing popularity of franchise day spas in a difficult economy. Entrepreneur magazine identified 2011 as “the year of the franchise day spa” because of the industry’s rapid growth fueled by increased demand for day spa services.
In the recession, fewer people are able to take trips to tropical climates to work on relaxation and renewal, making affordable local spas more popular than ever before. And because Planet Beach’s services are automated, they’re generally more affordable, take less time and ease the privacy concerns of people who might not want a masseuse or other spa employee to touch them.
Founded in 1994 in suburban New Orleans, Planet Beach is committed to automated day spa treatments and is expanding its string of spas with automated services priced for working people with limited time and money for spa treatments.
Treatments include massages, facials, weight management treatments, red light therapy, spray tans and even teeth whitening. Planet Beach invented the Contempo Spa concept, which uses automated services to relieve customers’ stress and help people unwind.
