Physical Therapist Stretches into Health and Wellness Industry with MassageLuXe Franchise
MassageLuXe, a fast-growing luxury spa franchise, has a multi-unit owner looking to bring high-quality services to the Ann Arbor area. After working in physical therapy for 14 years, Raj Nijjar saw great potential in an opportunity with MassageLuXe at the referral of a trusted friend.
MassageLuXe prides itself on delivering the highest standard of services in the membership-based massage, facial and waxing industry. Raj’s physical therapy experience is closely aligned to some of the services and products offered at the spa, making the decision to own a franchise that much easier.
“The health and wellness industry is booming,” said Raj. “When looking into new business ventures, it was a natural move for me to choose MassageLuXe because of the business model. The brand allows you to offer top-of-the-line products and services from licensed massage therapists.”
In 2018, Raj signed an agreement to open three locations in the Ann Arbor area. With the first location opening in May 2019, Raj is excited to have recently opened his second location in October of this year. “Ann Arbor has a lot of professional people and there’s no big spa in the area. There are a few private places, but nothing like MassageLuXe,” comments Raj.
MassageLuXe’s future, according to President and CEO, Mark Otter, is to have more than 250 locations in the next five years. “Raj’s background with physical therapy sets him up for success in the health and wellness industry,” said Otter. “Ann Arbor is a great area for our brand to expand into, and we are so excited for Raj to flourish as a MassageLuXe owner.”
The franchise’s mission is “to deliver the highest quality massage, facial and waxing services in an environment that is both luxurious and relaxing to all of the guests.” Owners, like Raj, looking to diversify their portfolio can be successful while also caring for their guest’s health and wellness.
