Planet Beach Day Spa Franchise Targets Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine for ExpansionFranchise News, In the News
Automated day spa franchise plans to open six new locations in Jacksonville area to meet increased demand
Planet Beach, the world’s largest day spa franchise, is seeking local franchise partners to open up to six new locations in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine this year.
Planet Beach already has six locations in the Jacksonville area, but much of the sprawling metro area is underserved. Florida, especially the Jacksonville area, has large numbers of Planet Beach’s target demographic customer: professional women aged 30 to 50.
“Most members for one of our spa locations live or work close by,” says Tim Normand, the Jacksonville area representative for Planet Beach. “There are some really excellent locations available, and thanks to the real estate market, commercial leases are at an all-time low, making this a great time to explore opening up your own Planet Beach.”
Entrepreneur and Inc. magazines named New Orleans-based Planet Beach Contempo Spas a franchise to watch for 2011. The rapidly growing automated day spa taps into a nationwide demand for low-priced day spa services, posting positive gains despite the tight economy.
A Planet Beach Contempo Spa is an “automated” day spa — customers pay a monthly membership fee for spa services in a private room with fully automated, push-button machines performing the relaxation and wellness treatments.
The market for day spa services is huge and growing. “More and more people recognize the negative ways stress affects their lives and the lives of those close to them,” Normand said. “People love spa services, and our automated day spa gives members access to unlimited massages, facials, spray tans and other popular spa treatments for one low, monthly price.”
Planet Beach is an easy business for first-time business owners, anyone thinking about starting a family business or someone who loves day spa services and wants to help improve the lives of those around them.
“Because our day spas work much like a gym where members can come as often as they like, our members actually see prolonged benefits from the services,” Normand says. “They live healthier. They reduce the stress in their lives, slim down, have excellent-looking skin year-round and can even maintain a beautiful tan in the winter.”
