Meet Our Franchisees

Jonathan Alpert

Spa Owner – Woodbridge

After 28 years in senior management roles in retail, I decided to take charge of my future and invest in my own business.

I looked for a growing franchise in the service industry with a proven system, a strong hands on approach and an engaged support structure. At Hand & Stone I found them!

Always ready to pitch in and help, the support team are very much committed to the success of the individual franchisees. They are always open to suggestions and are continually looking at ways to add value to the system.

I look forward to a long, healthy and mutually beneficial relationship with Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.

Spa Owner

Hand & Stone is a company dedicated to quality and superior customer service. They provide good operational support and the ability to truly deliver a turn-key operation. As a former COO/General Manager in the elusive private club industry, it was paramount that the franchise business I chose would truly reflect the high standards I was accustomed to. I found this in Hand and Stone.

A key element Hand & Stone brings to my business is not only its proven business model/system and training, but the network of franchisees that I can go to for assistance, support and new ideas. The support from Hand & Stone corporate office has been nothing short of exceptional.

This can be a great opportunity for the entrepreneur who is willing to work hard to successfully grow their business. Hand & Stone is an excellent franchise company and I recommend them to anyone.

Vivian Mah

Spa Owner – Bloor West

During my 20 years in marketing and sales working for large companies, I regularly took advantage of massages and facials to relax, manage stress and aging! I had been exploring the idea of opening my own business and felt that Hand & Stone offered the best business model with a focused offering of these services. I always took time to relax and rejuvenate. My motto has always been ‘an hour a month’ and given the hectic lives that most of us lead, we owe it to ourselves to invest in our well-being and stay balanced.

We are just celebrating our first year anniversary and pleased with the results so far. Starting a business is no easy feat, so having a strong network of support from the Hand & Stone corporate team and fellow owners has helped us accomplish what we have in year 1. With 12 months of learning under our belt, the best is yet to come!
