Why buy a spa810 franchise

Over the past 20 years, the spa industry has exploded with people investing more in their health, beauty, and overall well-being.

With an ever-aging population and new generations who have grown up going to spas, this dramatic market expansion is expected to continue for decades to come.

spa810 is perfectly positioned to benefit from this huge market potential. Our membership model, diverse treatments, proven results, experienced staff, and unmatched service have attracted a loyal following and built a foundation for a successful and prosperous future.

Spa810 is the latest member of the bfa’s "UK Developer" category. The UK Developer category of membership at the bfa was introduced in order to help facilitate international franchisors’ entry into the UK market. As part of the UK Developer accreditation, the bfa reviews the existing franchise model to ensure it is both proven and ethical, which includes adhering to the European Code of Ethics that all bfa members comply to.

Duncan Berry, Director at Spa810, stated:We are really pleased to be the first franchise company to join the bfa under its new UK Developer membership category. I really believe that getting this accreditation is a fantastic endorsement of our robust and unique business model and will undoubtedly support us in looking to award franchises for this really exciting new franchise proposition.

How we train and support you

Each spa will be well supported in the fundamentals of operating the business. There will naturally be an expectation on the franchisee to lead, manage, inspire and ultimately set the tone to ensure the brand requirements are being met.  We recognise the areas that franchisees need most support in – HR, Marketing, Financials, Expenditure and Training / Education.

How much does a spa810 franchise cost?

Our franchise fee is £45,000 which includes the following:

  • Franchise license fee
  • Opening supplies, retail & professional stock inventory
  • Training fee; incl two people’s accommodation
  • Retail property search
  • Architect and building surveyors / retail project management
  • Lease agreement legal fee
  • Unit franchise agreement legal fee

Total investment would also require spa premises fit-out and working capital requirements.

Bank funding of at least 50% of the total start-up figure is available.

What we look for in a franchisee

Whilst you do not need any experience in the industry, spa810 franchisees will 

  • have a real desire to own and operate their business
  • help people feel rejuvenated, relaxed and more comfortable with and in their own skin. 
  • ideally have prior business experience and leadership and / or team management skills, profit and loss experience and preferably some experience of sales.

Franchisor Interview

Experienced franchise executive brings spa810 to the UK


Franchisors name: Duncan Berry
Name of franchise: spa810 UK Ltd

Tell us a bit about yourself including when and why you joined spa810 and your past employment within or outside of franchising
I have been involved in franchising for 20+ years. I started working for CII (now VMG) looking after Business Franchise magazine and launching a new East Coast franchise expo in the US in 1997.

I was then responsible for running Cartridge World UK and, later, across the 8 European master franchisees, Choice Hotels Europe and the 2017 bfa Franchisor of the Year, Bluebird Care.

 I decided it was time to put the learning from the last 15+ years’ experience into practice and take the plunge with our own master franchise.

I launched the first UK spa810 in Harrogate in Feb 2019. My aim is to replicate the success spa810 has had in the US; one spa in Phoenix has achieved an annual turnover of $1m+ (after 3 years or so of trading).

What qualities do you look for in a franchisee?  What makes a successful franchisee?
The ability to provide leadership, set the right tone and culture in the business, be solution-orientated and understand the interdependent partnership that exists between franchisee and master franchisee all help contribute to a successful and profitable outcome for a franchisee. 

What does the future hold for spa810?
Building on the strong start for the pilot operation in Harrogate and looking forward to sharing our experience of getting into this market with others to let them see just how strong, sustainable and profitable a market this can be for those wanting to run their own business.
