Unique New Management Franchise Launches
Drawing from over 15 years’ experience leading franchise brands with combined networks of over 500 franchisees, Duncan Berry believes he is well placed to ensure franchisee’s onboarding and ongoing support requirements are well met. spa810 is the brand he and his wife, Tania, identified as being ideal for this and have invested in acquiring the master franchise rights for the UK & Ireland.
spa810 (pronounced spa eight ten) offers a selection of carefully curated spa and non-invasive medical treatments. The brand offers body sculpting, advanced facials, laser-hair removal and a variety of massages, all given by a highly trained and qualified team of aesthetic therapists.
The spa810 brand fills a much-needed service offering and experience in the market between five-star spa hotels with high-end pricing and the independent, fragmented and inconsistent offerings provided at a local level.
spa810 provides female and male customers with best-in-class treatments and an elevated experience in a convenient retail location. Massages, facials and skincare treatments are offered using market-leading, FDA approved technologies administered by professionals. Included in spa810’s suite of medical technologies are state-of-the-art lasers for hair removal and non-surgical fat reduction equipment.
Berry’s also discerning about the qualities he believes are necessary from prospective franchisees. ‘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’ he explains.
Experience of managing teams and or individuals and exposure to business are an ideal prerequisite for spa810 franchisees although, given it’s a management franchise, Berry is confident of providing the necessary support. After all, he and Tania had no experience of the business sector they launched in, but that’s not stopped them making a success of the pilot spa in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Berry comments “We’re thrilled to be launching spa810 in the UK. We believe the brand meets a significant demand in the market. The fundamentals of the sectors I’ve previously been involved with of merchandising, driving occupancy, revenue per room, along with recruitment and retention are all highly relevant and can be applied to this sector.”
