The national franchise that started here, now plans to almost double in size here. Elements Therapeutic Massage, one of the fastest-growing franchises in America, has experienced record revenue growth, and aims to add 11 new franchise locations in its home state of Colorado as a result.

Elements massage studios posted an increase in average revenues of more than 27 percent across the U.S. in 2009 over the previous year. As the trend continues into 2010, Elements is expanding its franchise network to meet the rising demand.

“We’re answering the call in a $9 billion industry as more consumers take health and wellness into their own hands to manage stress, tension and pain relief on a regular basis,” said Bob Haimes, executive vice president and chief growth officer of Elements Therapeutic Massage. “That growth begins right here in Colorado, where more people are getting a massage today than ever before. With 13 existing studios and a tremendous presence in our own backyard, the opportunity to add locations and serve more loyal customers is now.”

The Colorado-based franchisor is targeting multi-unit franchisees, entrepreneurs and corporate evacuees to join their franchise system.
