We wanted to control our own destiny and operate a business with the values of customer service we hold dear.
Southlake, Texas (PRWEB) June 05, 2015
Larry Meyers worked in IT for 30 years before he decided he was ready to leave corporate America to pursue his lifelong dream: business ownership. But rather than opening a technical company as one might expect, he and his wife, Kim, chose to open a Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
“We wanted to control our own destiny and operate a business with the values of customer service we hold dear,” Larry said. Franchising with Hand & Stone allowed them to do just that while also having the support of an established brand at their fingertips.
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa offers professional massages, facials, hair removal, microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Their Healthy Lifestyle Program makes it easy and affordable to get regular body work while also allowing members to earn rewards for booking appointments. In addition, Hand & Stone also sells retail facial products so customers can take the spa experience home with them.
While doing their due diligence prior to purchasing their franchise, the Meyers heard of small business financing firm Guidant Financial from other franchisees. The couple decided to employ Guidant’s services to help them with a Rollover for Business Start-up — an arrangement that enabled them to invest funds from their existing retirement accounts into their new franchise without incurring any tax penalties.
“It was a very easy process,” Larry explained. “Guidant guided us along the path and explained the process fully.”
