ZERO GRAVITY MASSAGE PARTNERSHIP
How We Changed The Game
We removed both of the biggest challenges of the industry and replaced them technology and effective logistics. Our proprietary massage chair experience primarily serves couples in private-suites.
Using a system of micro-locations across the USA, we remotely operate each personalized experience using phones, text and video.
Over 500 consumer reviews rate us an average of 4.75 out of 5 stars with 97% of our reviews being positive.
Evolution of aMassage Franchisepost covid.
Pre-Covid Massage Industry
Staffing was always the hardest part of the business. Increased government regulations made it harder each year to find qualified massage therapists.
Success brought stress.
One of the challenges of the couples massage concept is needing twice as many therapists to serve the experience. With staffing already an issue, we began to see why other spas mostly ignore couples massage altogether.
Reimagining a chair massage experience.
In spite of our lack of experience with the chairs and our primary purpose being hands-on massage, we received enough evidence in a short period of time that we had something special.
In 2018 we went all-in with borrowing around $100k for 19 of our, now branded, "Vegas Massage Chairs" in a location on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip that cost $36,000 a year.
Still in a learning phase, year 1 was tough. By year 2 we had reached $250,000 in sales and were primed for a fabulous year 3 when the pandemic arrived.
The Covid Pivot
With much knowledge from serving couples for so many years, we knew that some compromises could be made in the experience as long as it gave couples an opportunity to be together for an activity outside the home.
And with the fear of Covid at it's height, we knew keeping people away from other people would be unique to our new-found business model.
By April of 2020, while every other spa in the country was closed, we were proudly serving couples massage. And our human-free, private-suite couples massage concept was born.
We selectively accept2types of partnerships.
"Our Model" includes a totally "hands off" approach by the partner. Partner has no role in any aspect of day-to-day operations. ZGM finds the property, secures the lease, and runs all aspects of operations.
The partner buys 2 of our Vegas Massage Chairs for $14,400 up front.
The partner pays for the setup and items within the room, $2,000 after setup.
At no point will partner owe or pay ZGM any additional fees. Should their be an operating loss, the loss rolls into the next months payout. At no point is the partner asked to pay additional fees for expenses or advertising out of their pocket. All will come from operating income.
Each month the partner receives 40% of profits after rent and advertising are paid. For example, if the rent is $400 (typical and usually includes ALL utilities and internet) and ads are $600 (typical) than total expenses are $1000.
If earnings are $2200, than after reducing for $1000 in expenses, $1200 is left as operating profit to be split. At 40% partner would receive $480 via ACH by the 3rd of the following month.
Our peak earnings for a location in one month so far has been $7100. With a 40% profit split, the payout would be $2,400 ($7100 - $1000 = $6100*40%).
Our average monthly payout after 2 years is around $1000 which means typically each partner earns back their investment around the 1 year mark. After which the monthly income stream continue month after month.
Without forecasting growth, a 5 year assumed return of $60,000 and 10 year return of $120,000 is incomparable for how small the startup fees and risk are.
Our Model with Your Model
The partner purchases 2 Vegas Massage Chairs for $14,400 and wholly owns the equipment. With the equipment in a private-suite, partner can use the chairs for their existing clients without discretion.
Through a licensing agreement and strategic partnership, Zero Gravity Massage, Inc will generate new clients and provide full support to those clients using the designated private-suite of the partners location.
This location will receive equal representation on the Zero Gravity Massage website for both marketing and booking reservations.
Each month ZGM will pay the partner 50% of net profits for perpetuity as long as the partner continues to provide an appropriate retail location for operations.
This model of partnership has averaged around $1,400 a month in payouts to the partner. Projecting over 5 years, assuming no growth, thats a return of $84,000. At 10 years, thats almost $170,000 of assumed earnings.
One location does not make anyone rich. But one location can improve residual income earnings that has many quality of life values.
How much$can this make?
One locations isn't making anyone rich, but can generate legitimate, additional passive income.
All locations have operated less than 2 years and are still in their startup phase.

How high can it go?
It is very reasonable to imagine doubling our numbers by year 3 and still only being at 30% capacity. And THAT is why we will continue to open our own stores all across this country.
But I want toOWNsomething.
As a business owner, I can relate. But perhaps you are not ready to spend 2 years sleeping on a massage table in the break room of a business 1800 miles from your family.
Perhaps you are not prepared to spend the amount of money it takes to get a national branded franchise model business to work with you to reduce the risk of a startup business.
Shouldn't there still be a way for you to get what really matters most: monthly, passive income?
