Massage franchise The Massage Company (TMC) will launch 10 new centres in Scotland over the next three years, in partnership with Franchise&.
The locations will bring TMC’s membership-based massage therapy to Scotland for the first time and are projected to generate up to 300 jobs.
TMC was founded in 2016 by entrepreneurs Charlie Thompson and Elliot Walker, to make massage more convenient, accessible and inclusive to people across the UK via monthly massage subscription models.
Walker told Spa Business: “By rolling out across Scotland, The Massage Company will bring the benefits of regular massage to thousands of people, introduce a proven successful business model and bring hundreds of new jobs for qualified and academy graduate massage therapists to Scotland.
“I believe we’ve found a great partner in Adeel Ashgar (head of brands) and his team at Franchise&.”
Franchisees can get involved in two ways; as a hands-on owner-operator, or a hands-off owner-investor.
The Massage Company currently has five UK locations in Putney, Camberley, Tunbridge Wells, High Wycombe and Sutton Coldfield. It reports an average member retention rate of more than 12 months and has seen a steady rise in users since the first centre launched six years ago.
Thompson added: “It’s brilliant to have the opportunity to bring massage subscription to Scotland. We know what a positive impact massage can have on people’s physical and mental health, and we’re delighted to be able to reach so much further.

“Health and wellbeing are incredibly important for everyone, and we feel privileged to make massage part of people’s lifestyles. Like all treatments, massage is most effective when used regularly, and our subscription model helps our members maintain their routine and feel the benefits every day.”
