“Spavia offers affordable, resort quality, individualized spa experience in a relaxing environment.” – Lisa Almehsen, Spavia CFE
What is Spavia?
As a day spa, Spavia is more than just a one-hit wonder. Spavia offers comprehensive spa services including massage, skin care, waxing, sunless tanning, lash extensive, makeup application, and more, including body wraps. In fact, Spavia is the only franchise spa that offers body wraps! They also offer bundled packages and membership, which keeps customers coming back and revenue streaming in.
During any down time, Spavia opens up their premises to organizations and groups to bring in extra income and to give their certified employees every opportunity to service the community.
As a franchise, Spavia is a hands-on business. As a franchisee, you get the chance to get your Spavia Day Spa up and running from the get-go. Then, once the business is established you are free to continue managing or to hire a general manager. Because Spavia is an emerging brand, there is a lot of flexibility in terms of availability. Spavia is a great franchise option for any franchisees looking to open multiple units.
Spavia’s goals are referral, retention, and repeat customers. These goals are achieved by providing service that consistently exceeds expectations. Spavia offers a high quality, five-star spa experience at a lower cost. They’re giving the people what they want!
Spavia started in 2005, but have really only been franchising for the past couple of years. In fact, the number of Spavia Day Spa locations has tripled in the past three years! This franchise take off is really due to Spavia’s partnership with Franworth. Franworth has worked with a number of very successful and recognizable brands. Some of these brands are Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, KFC, Dominos, Krispy Kreme, Tcby… you get the picture. These people know what they’re doing.
The Spavia/Franworth partnership combined the expertise and experience of the two brands. This means there are franchise experts and spa experts working together to help you, as a franchisee, succeed. They provide initial and ongoing training throughout the process of getting your franchise started. They assist in the acquiring of real estate and any construction that may need to happen, as well as marketing and business plans. Spavia/Franworth is a team of teams and they’re the team you want to be on.
The Ideal Spavia Franchisee
Spavia franchisees are very hands-on in the business, especially in the beginning. A franchisee’s typical day would definitely include relationships – interacting with members and guests, managing specialists and vendors, and networking in the community.
The average day would also include planning and administrative tasks – marketing strategy, scheduling, payroll, and inventory control.
Since these are the things a Spavia franchisee would be doing, an ideal franchisee is someone with management and/or executive experience and a desire to make a semi-passive investment. Good partners for Spavia are those who are motivated to impact their community through relationships, people people who are service oriented and customer driven. Motivated and energetic leaders with solid management skills would do well with Spavia.
