First franchise opens in Tunbridge Wells for The Massage Company

The Massage Company (TMC) has continued its mission to ‘bring massage to the mainstream’ and is excited to announce the opening of its first franchisee location (second UK centre) in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

The store is to be run by Franchisees Taran and Sophie Bassi. When asked about the build process, and pre-opening, Taran was particularly drawn to the recruitment and team development that is so crucial in building the business. “We started recruitment in early May and I have been hugely encouraged by not only the quality of our massage therapy team, but also the volume of response generated by our recruitment partners. We have started by employing eight therapists, along with two front desk membership supervisors, and will be recruiting again soon!”

The staff have all had to undergo and pass the TMC Training Programme to ensure it hits the spot for the customers. 

“Taran and Sophie Bassi, our first franchisees, have found a terrific property on Monson Road near the centre of the town” explains Elliot Walker, Founder and Commercial Director of The Massage Company. “The building is based over two floors, with space for 14 treatment rooms, including one duo room. The whole design has been copied across from the pilot centre in Camberley, giving consistent quality and customer experience within the centre.  We are delighted to have found a location with such visibility and potential for local customers.”

Mayor Len Horwood formally opened the centre in front of the team and other business leaders.
