Numbers don't lie; in fact, they tell you almost everything you need to know about Massage Envy. Started in 2002, the business grew from a membership-based massage-and-facial shop in a strip mall to a national franchise in less than 10 years—a testament to ambitious beginnings, but also its success in making these services part of the average person's wellness routine.
To this day, that industry-leading approach continues to work. With 25,000 massage therapists and aestheticians in its employ, it can accommodate its 1.65 million members, as well as new customers. Its locations—which number more than 1,150—stud 49 states, giving people a trusted brand they can turn to, even when they're far from home.
