Players in Business – Owning a Franchise

As part of our business series, we talk to a group of players about owning a business through a franchise model.

Best thing about owning a franchise: The best part of running your own ship, in my mind, is that you get to own your time. For franchising in particular though, you are able to access the learnings of someone who has been there before. You also get to access the ongoing support and guidance from a team of people who are heavily incentivised for you to be successful. Obviously healthy profits are a key too!

Why did you get into it?: My wife has multiple sclerosis, so we were looking at ways to help her relax and recover. Her fatigue and pain was immense initially but flotation therapy helped. I then started using floating for my own performance through visualisation and also for the physical recovery benefits. We both saw the benefits of the growing health and wellbeing industry and saw that people were really keen to invest in their wellness. People are overwhelmingly more stressed than ever, so we wanted to create a one-stop shop where people can improve their wellbeing.
