The threat of redundancy in your forties might fill some people with dread. Not so Sunny Sachdev, who has invested half a million pounds of his redundancy money to realise his dream of running a business.
Sunny worked for many years as a business and operations manager in contact centres and customer services. However, he hoped eventually to start up his own business in the wellness sector and when he was made redundant, he jumped at the opportunity to buy into The Massage Company franchise in Sutton Coldfield.
“I saw my redundancy not as the end of my career but as the beginning of a new adventure as a franchisee”, says Sunny.
“Membership massage is commonplace in the US where its benefits are understood, but it is a new concept here in the UK. The lure of joining a franchise that is new to the market is exciting and I am looking forward to bringing the membership massage model to The Midlands”.
The Massage Company now has four centres in the UK, with therapists all gaining qualifications from the company’s own intensive training programme.
The centre’s fully qualified staff will undergo TMC’s unique Advanced Massage Training Programme, and offer a tight range of massages (Swedish, maternity, deep tissue and sports massage) at consistently high-quality. The massage treatment centre, which will create 30 local jobs, will formally open on 17 October.
