Twenty years ago, Planet Beach was a twinkle in Stephen Smith’s eye when he passed by a neon sign for a New Orleans tanning salon. He started his own, and called it Electric Beach with plans to franchise it.
This was a natural progression and perfect addition to his Gold’s Gym businesses, as Smith has been involved in the wellness and fitness industry since he was 18. His goal with Planet Beach was to help people achieve a sense of rested well-being that only comes from a day at the beach. “I felt that this name represented a place that people would desire to escape to and have an ‘otherworldly’ and relaxing experience,” Smith said.
Smith has ensured Planet Beach has changed with the market demands. As the desire for tanning services has diminished, spa services have increased. Now, the franchise has evolved into a unique twist on the traditional day spa. Customers pay a monthly membership fee for unlimited, fully automated, push button spa services which are now known as the Planet Beach Automated Spa.
The growth in the health and wellness industry is phenomenal and continues to boom, expecting to reach a trillion dollars in 2017. If you or someone you know has an interest in joining this rewarding and exploding industry, click here.
