FORT WORTH, TEXAS (June 18, 2019) — Massage Envy, the leading provider of therapeutic massage, assisted stretching and skin care services across its franchise network, has selected Buxton to provide analytics to guide the brand’s strategic real estate decisions. Buxton will provide insights into the brand’s nationwide growth strategy and network optimization opportunities.  

“Massage Envy’s rapid growth to more than 1,150 independently owned and operated locations since 2002 is a testament to the hard work of our outstanding franchisees and to our powerful mission of helping our members feel their best,” said Tim Weiderhoft, vice president of franchise development for Massage Envy. “Buxton’s analytics will provide valuable insights as we embark on the next stage of growth.”

As a Buxton client, Massage Envy will have access to the web-based Buxton Analytics Platform, which will allow the brand to evaluate potential sites, visualize market data and run reports to support its growth strategy. Massage Envy will also leverage Buxton’s strategic relationship with CoStar to integrate findings of Buxton’s analysis into the CoStar Suite. The integration will allow Massage Envy to streamline its real estate search process by searching for available real estate in Buxton-recommended trade areas.
