Therapeutic services franchise Massage Heights is set to develop its first facility in San Marcos, Texas, US.

The company has signed a franchise agreement with local entrepreneurs Joshua Hu and Leah Johnson.

Massage Heights franchise operations and development senior vice-president Tim Hicks said: “As we grow our footprint throughout Texas, we’re continuously looking for franchise partners passionate about owning a business that promotes personal wellness and health.

“We know we’ve found a true partnership with Josh and Leah. We’re thrilled they’ve made the decision to join the Massage Heights family and bring our first Retreat to the San Marcos community.”

“We’re continuously looking for franchise partners passionate about owning a business that promotes personal wellness and health.”

Massage Heights’ San Marcos Retreat is scheduled to open for customers next year.

Johnson said: “Massage Heights is our first franchise endeavour and we couldn’t think of a better franchisor to support us through this process.

“Research has shown that massage therapy has many health benefits, and it’s mine and Josh’s hope that we can utilise our experience in the medical field to help raise awareness in our community about those benefits.”

Established in San Antonio in 2004, Massage Heights currently has around 60 Retreats throughout the US state of Texas in target markets such as Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston.

The brand is expected to open its 12th San Antonio-area Retreat next month in Spring Branch, Texas.
