Franchising Info

History

The founders of Spray La Vie have been in the health and beauty industry for nearly three decades. They have successfully developed and franchised multiple brands within this industry. As pioneers within the industry they continue to seize new opportunities as the industry evolves and new market demands are created.

Decades have been spent perfecting a membership-based business model and each brand in operation today uses this model to achieve substantial revenue growth and help simplify the customers’ experience.

An experienced team of professionals have been closely monitoring the growth of the health and beauty industry. Now, after years of evaluation and research, the first sunless tanning spa franchise has been branded – Spray La Vie!

Much like Massage Envy and Curves, the anti-aging industry has been around for years but has never before been franchised. Like these popular brands, Spray La Vie was created to meet an already existing demand in today’s market.

With years of experience in franchising, membership revenue and the health and beauty industry, this brand offers a great opportunity for franchisees to become leaders in a new but proven industry!

The Industry

The Sunless Tanning and Anti-Aging Skin Care Industry is not only growing, it’s booming!!! The baby boomer generation is constantly looking for ways to maintain and improve their youthful appearance. According to the Women’s Skincare In-Depth Consumer Report, 62% of women 35 – 54 and 65% of women 55+ said anti-aging benefits are an extremely important factor in purchasing skin care products.

Beauty Light is a great way to help our customers look good and feel good. This non-invasive, florescent light system uses a UV-free booth for full-body sessions. This new technology is amazing and our customers love it!

One of the most successful ways to look younger and feel better is to have a glowing tan. The Sunless Tan Industry has been thriving since the turn of the century. For years companies have attempted to provide the perfect sunless tan. Since the late 1990’s sunless tan technology has improved and Fortune 500 companies such as Mary Kay, Estee Lauder and Neutrogena have developed sunless tan products and continue to see an increase in product sales year after year. Our state-of-the-art sunless spray booths deliver a perfect spray every time – 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

In addition to beauty light and sunless tanning, Spray La Vie offers a complete line of Anti-Aging skin care products. Our premier professional skin care line uses the highest quality of ingredients to rejuvenate the skin.

The founders recognized the demand for a Sunless Tanning and Anti-Aging Skin Care Spa and created Spray La Vie to meet this already existing demand in the market.
