Los Angeles Massage Boutique Drives National Franchise Expansion

LOS ANGELES — The NOW Massage, Los Angeles’ hottest wellness destination, will launch a national network of boutique massage therapy franchises. The team behind this modern massage boutique will leverage the vibrant culture, passionate community, and world-class design aesthetic of The NOW to expand its reach across the country.

The visionaries behind The NOW are working to transition from four proven massage locations in Los Angeles to become a fast-growing franchise system with a national footprint. The team has signed initial franchise agreements to debut massage studios in Austin, Denver, Chicago, Scottsdale and Raleigh.

Founded in 2015, The NOW blends the quality of a luxury massage destination with the convenience and affordability of a walk-in neighborhood spot. Their goal is to provide a menu of high quality and consistent massages in an elevated, tranquil setting.

“There was a void in the market for a next level massage experience in an inspiring space without committing to the time and expense of a full service spa,” said Gara Post, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of The NOW. “Part of our philosophy is incorporating self-care into your routine, and we didn’t want it to be cost prohibitive or impossible to schedule. The NOW is an oasis in the city and an escape from the fast-paced, digital overload we experience on a daily basis.”

About The NOW (https://thenowmassage.com/)

The NOW, a new concept massage boutique, was founded on the principle that self-care is a necessity, not a luxury. Designed to serve as an oasis from today’s fast paced digital society, their goal is to offer high-quality, affordable massage services in a beautiful setting. After launching in 2015, The NOW quickly became LA’s hottest wellness destination for globe-trotting influencers and locals alike. Four boutiques later, the growing lifestyle brand is set to embark on a national franchise expansion and is looking forward to bringing their thoughtfully crafted menu with customizable enhancements, healing products and singular design aesthetic to cities all over the United States.

Beauty and wellness franchises tap ever-growing consumer demands

by Jerry Rieder, Certified Franchise Consultant

People everywhere view their health and appearance as worthwhile investments. The $3.7 trillion global wellness industry is expected to expand by more than 17 percent through 2020, and health and beauty franchises enable you to join this high-growth field.

People always want to look and feel good, so these businesses typically are recession-resistant, which makes them a particularly appealing investment.

Hair salons alone generate more than $44 billion in revenue each year in the United States. Health and wellness spas bring in about $17 billion a year, and massage services are at $16 billion. Personal waxing and nail salons bring in some $11 billion, with tanning salons generating more than $2 billion in yearly revenue.
If those numbers sound pretty sweet, consider that the forecast is rosy for a continuing boom. The U.S. Department of Labor sees demand staying strong, projecting that the beauty and wellness industry will grow faster than the average for all occupations through at least 2020.

So if you’re looking for a franchise in an industry with a strong past performance and a bright outlook, you might consider the areas of beauty salon/hair care, cosmetics, tanning, or med spa. These businesses are fun to operate and have a high profit potential. Another attraction: usually no industry experience is required.
Following are three high-growth categories to consider:

Lash Services

The great thing about eyelash extensions is that follow-up treatments are a must, which means that repeat visits are assured. And lash love isn’t just for celebs anymore—rank-and-file office workers to soccer moms are buying into this beauty trend.

One company that anticipated the growing demand is the Lash Lounge. It was the first business of its kind in the franchising world and joined the booming express beauty service industry as a salon that specializes solely in eyelash extensions.

Massages

After a tough day at work, tense muscles can cry out for a massage. Statistics show that most Americans suffer from back pain, other muscle pain, and routine stress, which are the primary reasons that people sign up for their first massage. Among the franchise options filling those needs is Elements Massage™. It provides a variety of massage therapy options to clients who seek relaxation or relief for lower back soreness or just an overall wellness benefit.

Barbershops

One fast-growing consumer base in the beauty and wellness industry is men, and the barbershop is the male equivalent of the beauty salon. Barbershops have begun offering a wide array of styling options and environments for the testosterone set.

One example is Diesel Barbershop®, an innovative franchise founded in 2011. Diesel’s target audience is 16- to 75-year-old men. Its customers want a place where they can relax and maybe drink a beer (21-and-older customers, of course!) while getting their haircut and a shave. Clients enjoy the masculine atmosphere where they can talk sports or other interests with the barber or other customers.
