08 Jun What a year it’s been!
We really had no idea what to expect. The business we sketched out on a napkin two years ago certainly didn’t take into account the hard lessons we’ve had to learn since. Somewhat naively, we thought that 20 years in the spa business would give us a great head start into the on-demand world of massage therapy. But the new business venture we launched last June has truly been a start-up – with all the highs and lows that come with it. It’s a business like no other, with lots of moving parts, and has certainly kept us on our toes. Despite all the hard work, it’s been incredibly rewarding.
We’re also really proud to be the first in Canada to make the move to on-demand. We think that having a made-in Canada solution that works exclusively with RMTs, and that takes the safety of our therapists and clients as seriously as we do, is something that will continue to stand out as U.S. competitors storm the market in the years to come.
Since launching in Toronto we’ve expanded throughout the GTA, into Brampton and Mississauga and most recently into Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge. And we’re just getting started. We’re encouraged by the interest we’ve received from both clients and therapists in other Canadian urban centres.
We’re also exploring some exciting collaborations with companies who want to provide massage therapy to their employees, giving even more people access to Massago RMTs on-demand.
There’s lots more to look forward to. Thanks for all your support in year one!
