The Massage Company is set to expand its centres into international markets including India after clinching a deal with FranGlobal
With the rise in mental health awareness and work-related stress becoming more prevalent, it’s no wonder stress reduction techniques are also becoming increasingly important for business owners. And now, The Massage Company, the membership-based massage franchise, is capitalising on this and is set to take its massage centres across the sea to India.
Founders Elliot Walker and Charlie Thompson have struck a deal with FranGlobal, Asia’s largest franchise reseller, to launch 50 centres throughout India with a goal of making an estimated $50m in network revenue from the endeavor. The first centre will launch in Delhi NCR with other metropolitan cities to follow.
Furthermore, The Massage Company aims to continue expanding to international markets throughout 2019, with Sweden, Germany, Spain and the Czech Republic all of interest. Currently the franchise operates in Surrey, Kent and Buckinghamshire and plans to open centres in London, Hampshire and Birmingham too.
Commenting on the expansion, Charlie Thompson, co-founder of The Massage Company, said: “We aim to become the global leader in membership-based massage and we consider India to be a sizeable market which will enable us to achieve this goal.”
Additionally, commenting on the deal, Gaurav Marya, chairman of FranGlobal, said: “Our network of over 70 brokers across India will help us to make The Massage Company the leader in membership-based massage. We will launch The Massage Company at The Master Franchise Show 2019 in June. This is one of the biggest trade shows that we host, drawing in over 50,000 attendees every year so we’re confident that it will make a big impression.”
With so many workers needing support, it’s likely The Massage Company will be successful in smoothing things over in India and go from strength to strength globally.
