About The Massage Company
The Massage Company has created an emerging and lucrative market sector by bringing affordable, high-quality massage to the high street. Growth comes through bringing new customers into the market, rather than battling with competitors, which gives it a tremendously exciting trajectory.
This is a revolutionary, category-disrupting business model, developed and proven here in the UK – and there’s more demand than The Massage Company can keep up with!
The Massage Company is a membership-based massage business, which follows the successful membership-based model used by gyms and fitness studios to allow people to access a more affordable massage service at their convenience. The brand was created after the founders were inspired by seeing this model used across the US, and seeing the faster rate of growth for businesses by using this approach.
With enormous growth across the health and fitness sector for all services related to improving health and wellbeing, interest in massage services has expanded beyond specialist services for the therapeutic or sports sectors, with a greater number of people interested in massage as a relaxing and stress-relieving activity. For potential franchisees interested in expanding into the wellness sector, a business with The Massage Company can be a great opportunity to succeed.
