First there were mobile beauticians. Later, it was on-site massage. Now the hot new trend is the mobile day spa - and one industry pioneer is growing rapidly, providing a new kind of luxury coast to coast.
The demand is so great for “spa to go” services, says mobileSPA
(www.mobilespa.com) founder and managing partner Devika Mukherjee,
that her two-year-old company has been fielding calls from all over the
U.S. and Canada, prompting mobileSPA to aggressively expand its service
area through partnership opportunities throughout North America.
mobileSPA, the only full-service day spa that travels to clients at the
office, hotel or home, was built on consumer demand, said Mukherjee.
“Since its inception in 2002, mobileSPA has gained significant success in
catering to clients who want the pampering traditionally only found in
upscale day spas in the comfort of their own homes,” Mukherjee explained.
“Our concept emerged from the demand of society, and now we have
identified a serious need for expansion, as indicated by the calls we
receive from all over North America inquiring about our services.”
Due to the upscale nature of the mobileSPA service, the company is seeking
partners with varied backgrounds that can provide a high standard of
service and ambience. Those selected to help build the mobileSPA brand
will receive marketing and operations support through mobileSPA as well as
training, 24- hour telephone support, professional Web sites with
location-specific domain names, and many more partnership support
services. In return, partners will be responsible for business development
and strategic marketing in their local area, creating corporate and hotel
accounts, developing strategic alliances with complementary professionals,
including wedding planners and hotel concierges; and hiring their own
estheticians, massage therapists and cosmetologists.
“This is an incredible opportunity that can weather a down economy and
absolutely explode in a strong economy,” stressed Mukherjee. “‘Pamper
yourself’ spa parties and ladies’ nights out are two of the most popular
activities among women today, whether they’re jet setters or homemakers.
mobileSPA is a fusion of the two that takes any occasion to a whole new
