The new location is the 49th body + face concept location to open, bringing the total percentage of locations offering custom dermalogica skincare treatments to almost 50 percent of the total franchise system. “In 2007, we opened our first franchise location outside the state of Texas in Iowa,” says Bret Franson, director of franchise development. “And we are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our 100th location and the growth of the body + face concept in the same state with one of our first regional developers.” Glenn Franson, president and CEO, attributes the company’s success to the commitment to becoming the brand of choice by elevating the everyday experience for members, guests, strategic-partners, and team members. “With 25 million more Americans each year getting a massage today than a decade ago, the room for growth is limitless,” says Franson. “Medical research proves that regular therapeutic massage can help fight off disease and depression, boost immunity, relieve pain, increase alertness, and improve sleep quality among other benefits. Massage Heights makes this an affordable and convenient option for people from all walks of life.”
