Founded to Fill an Important Need
Hand and Stone was founded by John Marco, a visionary entrepreneur
with a keen eye toward the hottest trends. While operating a successful
private practice as a physical therapist, John kept abreast of related
industries. Of particular note was the massage industry. John observed
its burgeoning growth and began his careful study.
John noted that although the industry was hot --- and getting hotter --
it was fragmented and had no recognizable brands. More importantly, he
observed a serious lack of convenient and affordable massage spa services
under one roof. Clearly, there was a need and a market for a place that
offered reliable , top-quality massage services -- at affordable prices!
Several years later, after careful research and planning, John opened
Hand and Stone Massage Spa. He chose the Hand and Stone name to
immediatly communicate his company's focus, and customer responded.
It wasn't long before John realized he had a hit on his hands. Starting
with a strong branding concept, marketing style and creativity, John
grew Hand and Stone Massage Spa into a thriving enterprise. And now,
he's offering like-minded individuals like you - the opportunity to
acquire a Hand and Stone franchise of their own.
