Additionally, working capital will be available for marketing, inventory, and other items.
The finance program will be available to the entire Massage Envy franchise footprint covering the United States.
“We are proud to help the Massage Envy franchise network with their business initiatives. We look forward to assisting the franchisor and franchisees build their brand, drive revenue, and continue national expansion,” said Len Baccaro, senior vice president of Sales at Ascentium Capital.
“Our goal is to ensure our franchisees are set up for long term success. Ascentium Capital’s finance expertise will help our franchisees have access to a streamlined way to finance their refreshes, acquire new franchised locations and easily add equipment and technology to their locations,” said Tim Weiderhoft, Massage Envy vice president of Franchise Development. “The customized financing will also help franchisees stay competitive.”
