Spa & Hospitality Experts Team Up to Create SpaSense Group
With a portfolio that includes more than 80 spas, resorts and hotels throughout the world, SpaSense Group, a partnership between spa veterans Deborah Evans and Eva Jensch, has launched to offer professional spa development and management services. The new company was created in response to an increasing demand for experienced spa operators and spa developers with the explosive growth of the spa industry and shortage of qualified spa operators.
"We offer valuable solutions to today's toughest issues, said Evans. "Eva and I are dedicated, seasoned professionals who bring years of imaginative and proven spa consulting services to each project, whether we are developing new spas or refreshing concepts and operations for existing spas and salons."
SpaSense Group developed Spa360 Management Services, an innovative program which offers varying degrees of solutions to the multi-faceted challenges of a well-functioning spa. Spa90© offers a one-time spa business review; Spa180© provides a comprehensive spa audit and advisory; a one year consulting agreement is included with Spa270©; and a full management contract with Spa360©. SpaSense Group maintains an exclusive team of spa experts, headed by Evans and Jensch, who provide the hands-on knowledge and experience to guide the process from start to finish.
Depending on the program selected, SpaSense Group offers financial analysis, market analysis and feasibility, facility planning and conceptual development, staff recruitment and training, operational development, pre-opening services and spa management services, green up services and operational audit and review services. Jensch and Evans also provide partial or complete spa development services internationally.
"One of the most frequent requests we get is to review and refresh concepts for existing spas," said Jensch. "Our Spa360 Management Services program helps target the specific objective of each client. Needs for a spa will change over time, and SpaSense Group keeps its fingers on the pulse of what is trending in and out, as well as what services specific markets will support. We also see some poorly designed spas — either physically or operationally — that may need to be tweaked or reorganized in order to become financially successful."
Each project that SpaSense Group takes on is customized to reach the goals of the client. According to Evans, the principles of strategic business planning, market responsiveness and innovation have kept SpaSense Group spas continually listed among the best in the world.
"We try to inspire beauty and a sense of magic, while creating spas that operate efficiently and are financially successful," said Jensch, who previously owned and subsequently sold a successful spa in Northern California, and who has also helped develop and operate numerous spas on five different continents over the past 30 years.
Evans is a former general manager at Lake Austin Spa Resort and Red Mountain Spa, two top ten destination spas. She brings a wealth of business, management and operational expertise to the SpaSense Group partnership. Her acute financial and marketing prowess provides insight into the ramifications of most financial decisions and what it takes to operate a successful spa operation. Deborah's innate ability to understand a client's needs and to create inspired spa environments strong guest loyalty has placed her in the forefront of the spa consulting business.
