Massage Envy Spa, a pioneer of professional, convenient and affordable massage and spa services, has announced plans to expand the brand’s presence throughout the state of New York.
The development plans come on the heels of recent openings of Massage Envy Spa’s first clinics in Manhattan. The brand’s first Manhattan location opened in November 2014 in Midtown West followed by clinics opening in the Upper East Side/Sutton Place and Gramercy areas.
Two additional New York clinics opened in the Rego Park neighborhood of Queens and in Syracuse’s largest suburb, Clay, NY. To continue the New York growth momentum, Massage Envy Spa is targeting other New York markets for expansion including the five boroughs — the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island — and upstate markets, including Rochester, Syracuse, Albany and Ithaca, among others.
“Development in New York City has been a big part of our national expansion strategy,” said Steve Bielewicz, vice president of global franchise sales.
“We are continuing to target not only Manhattan, but the other four boroughs and the upstate region for additional growth for the brand. We’re thrilled to see how well received our newest New York locations have been, and are eager to bring even more clinics to the Empire State.”
The opening of the Midtown West, Gramercy Park, Upper East Side, Rego Park and Clay locations bring the number of clinics in New York to 37.
To fuel expansion, the company is looking for franchisee candidates.
