Resort Spa Franchise Expanding in Arizona
A local couple is opening a new Hand & Stone Massage Spa in Phoenix. Though three Hand & Stone centers currently operate in Scottsdale, Anthem and Chandler, Jill Fleming and her husband, John are opening this new Arizona Franchise in March at Cactus Road and Tatum Boulevard. According to this article, "three more are expected to open in north Scottsdale, Ahwatukee and Chandler during the year." Hand & Stone franchises allow a monthly membership which offers spa treatments to members at a more affordable rate than some resort spas. "The spas were founded by John Marco, a physical therapist who saw a need in the marketplace for high-quality, convenient and affordable massage-spa services under one roof." The centers offer a range of treatments such as cold stone facials, hot-towel foot exfoliation and hot stone massages. "Membership at the center is $49.95 a month and includes a monthly massage and discounted rates on other services A 50-minute, hot-stone massage is $59.95 for members and $89.95 for non-members. The center offers an introductory relaxation massage for $39.95."
