Adding to their existing centres in Camberley, Tunbridge Wells, High Wycombe and Sutton Coldfield, the opening at Putney Exchange marks TMC’s fifth franchisee location in the UK and comes at a time where the business is seeing a huge increase in demand of massage services following the easing of lockdown restrictions.
Open 7 days a week, TMC’s new 1,900 sq ft Putney Exchange location will operate under a franchise agreement on a 10-year lease. The new location will house 8 treatment rooms and a team of up to 20 highly trained therapists who are projected to provide treatments to thousands of customers a month.
Greater London retail property expert and Director of CBRE Matt Gillson once again collaborated with TMC on securing this venue and will continue to advise on additional territories where TMC is looking to open new facilities.
TMC was founded by Charlie Thompson and Elliot Walker with the goal of bringing high-quality massage to the mainstream. By emphasising the benefits of massages being a part of a healthier lifestyle, TMC aims to create accessible and purpose-built facilities that provides exceptional massage therapy by highly trained therapists — all at an affordable price. TMC’s first location opened in Camberley, Surrey in March 2016.
“The continued growth of such an exciting, wellness-focused concept with the addition of their first London location is extremely encouraging in today’s challenging market. CBRE are thrilled to be advising TMC on their UK expansion strategy and look forward to their continued growth in London and beyond..”
- Matt Gillson, Director, CBRE
“We are delighted to be working with CBRE as we continue to expand our centres across the UK to meet the demand of wellness services, especially as lockdown restrictions ease and people are looking for ways to continue their self-care journey as part of a regular healthy lifestyle. The pandemic has been a source of great stress for many people, and TMC’s presence will help meet the increased demand for greater accessibility to quality massage therapy.”
