Hamilton, NJ – Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa is pleased to announce it has opened its newest location in Chatham, New Jersey, at 640 Shunpike Road in Morris County. The location was opened on December 22nd, 2012 by brothers Jeff and Ken Silbert, who already own three other locations in New Jersey.
“We see towns in like Chatham in Morris County as a prime market for our brand’s development,” said Todd Leff, CEO and President of Hand & Stone. “We are pleased to have Jeff and Ken Silbert lead our brand with top-tier services and integrity in Morris County.”
The Silberts come from a strong business background; Ken was a senior managing partner with Accenture and Jeff leads his own advisory firm helping ambitious business owners scale their companies. With decades of combined business experience and different strengths, the brothers desired to go into business together. Ken uses his operations experience to guide them while Jeff focuses on business development.
Proving that massage therapy and facials isn't just for the rich and famous anymore, the new Hand & Stone will erase what once was considered a penchant of the affluent by offering services to all levels of consumers.
“I’m thrilled to be opening a Hand & Stone Spa in Chatham,” said Jeff Silbert, co-owner of the new location. “I am looking forward to bringing affordable and effective massage and facial services to the community of Chatham and its neighboring towns such as Madison, Summit and New Providence.”
Launched in 2005 by John Marco, a physical therapist with 20 years of experience, Hand & Stone’s mission is to bring massage therapy to the masses. Clients enjoy the treatment, but "most aren't just coming for the indulgence," Leff said. "They're coming for stress reduction and pain relief, with many coming based on the suggestion of their doctors."
Leff said the company’s emphasis on quality customer service combined with a full menu of healthy lifestyle options for massage and facials and an affordable month-to-month price have positioned the brand for continued growth in an era where many businesses are closing.
“Our rapid expansion can be attributed to our ability to attract high-quality franchisees who share our passion for the highest level of service we offer customers,” Leff said. “Despite tough economic times, our numbers show that people love our services and with our affordability and convenience we are actually growing demand for the services in each new market we enter.”
As a result of this growing demand, Hand & Stone has plans to open a total of 49 new locations in 2013.
“As we continue to enter new markets in 2013, we are thrilled at the opportunity to introduce even more people to our affordable healthy lifestyle services,” continued Leff. “The future is certainly bright for Hand & Stone.”
