The Massage Company completes first franchise agreement for three more sites

Membership salon concept The Massage Company has completed its first franchise agreement for a three centre-multi site deal.

The company’s first franchise since launching last year has been awarded to Taran and Sophie Bassi, a couple with a seperate business in London. The multi-site deal will see the pair open three Massage Company sites to join the existing company-owned branch in Camberley, Surrey. 

As per The Massage Company blueprint, the new sites will be between 2,000 and 3,000sq ft and will each employ 20 to 30 staff, who will be put through its Training Academy Programme.

“When we started hearing about The Massage Company we knew straight away it was a unique and interesting business model. I knew if there was one near me then I would use it – which is a criteria we have been using when we looked around what was available. We understand that we are the first, which adds an extra level of excitement and opportunity. We intend to open our initial three sites as soon as possible with the plan to open more after that," commeneted Taran Bassi.

Elliot Walker, co-founder and commercial director responsible for franchising, said: "We set up this business to franchise across the UK. To have built, opened, successfully traded and awarded our first multi-site franchise agreement within 12 months demonstrates the speed of roll out that can be achieved when you bring something new to the market."

A timescale has not yet been set for the new franchise sites.
