The urban day spa concept YeloSpa (multiple locations) has launched a new nationwide franchise program, offering its business model to qualified owner-operators and multi-unit developers in select markets across the U.S. The opportunity aims to help qualified investors and professionals create a go-to health and wellness destination in their local communities.
Founded by Nicolas Ronco in 2007, YeloSpa combines traditional spa services with more unique offerings like power napping and sleep therapy. The idea for YeloSpa was inspired through Ronco’s hectic city lifestyle and constant travel, which inspired him to create a unique environment that would fulfill his health and wellness needs, and do the same for others like him.
"We launched YeloSpa 10 years ago in one of the most difficult markets in the U.S., New York City, and what we've created since is unlike anything else in the spa industry," said Ronco, founder and CEO of YeloSpa. "New Yorkers are notoriously demanding, plus the city's leasing and labor costs are the highest in the nation. Because we've cracked the code on how to flourish in such an environment, we're now eager to share our brand, system and know-how with people across other urban centers."
As part of the new franchise program, YeloSpa is hoping to attract investors from the spa and wellness industry in the surrounding states of New York, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Qualified franchise owners will gain access to YeloSpa’s market knowledge, business model, and brand identity, as well as comprehensive operational training, business development, and marketing support.
"Our top priority is to ensure the business health of our franchisees which is why we're taking a deliberate approach to expansion and only targeting markets that we can fully support," says Ronco. "Our efforts will also include combining the local market expertise of our investors with our unique approach to wellness, allowing us to build a strong foundation of franchisee operations."
