Own A Franchise

LaVida Massage is a unique Wellness Center offering highly customized therapeutic massage and skin care services that are affordable and convenient. We are a leading provider of holistic health and wellness services, catering to busy, active lifestyles in gender neutral settings. Founded in Michigan, the LaVida Massage mission is to improve the lives of our guests through exceptional treatments, products, education, and customer care. For our Franchisees, our mission is to make sure that they succeed. From marketing materials to operational support, our Franchisee’s success is our success. We are there supporting every step of the franchise process.

The perception is that massage is a luxury item rather than a necessity. The American Massage Therapy Association most recent fact sheet shows that, “Between July 2015 and July 2016, surveys indicate that roughly 43.8 – 57.6 million adult Americans (19 – 25 percent) had a massage at least once.” This proves as an industry there is growth potential as more of the population learns about the benefits of regular therapeutic massage.

FAQ

  • What territories are available?
    There are open territories in all markets. LaVida Massage is registered in all states with open territories in all markets. Our largest markets are in Michigan and Georgia.
  • What is a protected franchise territory?
    Each of our LaVida Massage franchisees is granted a specific and designated area in which no other LaVida Massage franchise location is awarded, to ensure a non-competitive arrangement. A five-mile radius is typical for each territory.
  • Do you offer financing options?
    Hands on assistance is available for financing options.
  • What kind of time investment will my LaVida Massage Center require?
    You will have to decide for yourself what kind of time commitment you are capable of making. Efficient web-based management tools and software make it uniquely possible to run your daily business from virtually any location, but your team of therapists and front desk staff will still need your leadership and management. We have many members of the LaVida Massage Network who work full or part time jobs in addition to operating their Centers – some full-time franchisees who hold ‘day jobs’ are even multi-unit LaVida Massage Center owners! Your commitment of time is yours to determine. We are looking more for an active owner/operator as we have seen these Centers become profitable much faster than with absentee owner/operators. The bottom line is– your investment of effort and time will often dictate profitability. While working smarter is a great solution, there is still no substitute for time investment.
  • What if I do not have industry experience?
    A typical concern is without industry experience; a Franchisee will not succeed. With our proven business model, training materials, and operational support, we are there every step of the way, no industry experience required.
  • Isn't massage a feminine spa treatment?
    The perception is that massage is a luxury item rather than a necessity. LaVida Massage is not a spa and focuses on the benefits of a regular therapeutic massage in a gender-neutral setting.
  • Still have some unanswered questions?
