iCRYO is a recovery and wellness franchise founded by Kyle Jones in October 2015 in his hometown of League City, Texas. After realizing the potential of the business and seeing the positive effects it had on the guests, Jones and his father, Bill, launched a turnkey franchise model. Today, iCRYO has serviced over 150,000 people and has awarded over 300 franchises to business owners across the United States. 

The mission of iCRYO is “to elevate the quality of life of its team members, guests and franchisees by providing affordable, professional and convenient personal health services while raising the standard as a global wellness brand.”

In addition to cryotherapy, iCRYO offers services such as infrared sauna, red light therapy, iV infusions, vitamin shots, compression therapy and more.  

How Many Locations Are There?

iCRYO has awarded over 300 franchises to business owners around the country and has plans to expand globally in the next decade.

The brand closed out 2022 with nine new centers, 12 new territories sold and more than 40 new centers expected to open within those territories. In total, iCRYO is scheduled to open 50 centers in 2023 across North America.

In January 2022, the franchise announced their partnership with 24 Hour Fitness, introducing the first iCRYO to be located inside the 24 Hour Fitness Parker Arapahoe Club in Aurora, Colorado. The new iCRYO dedicated space located within select 24 Hour Fitness clubs are targeted to open in several phases in California and Colorado.

What Is the Business Model?

When franchisees invest in iCRYO, they can either build a brand new franchise from the ground up or add the iCRYO brand and services to an existing business. Additionally, there are both single- and multi-unit franchise opportunities available. 

For all new franchisees, the brand offers a comprehensive training program that includes classroom-style cryotherapy and franchise courses, management and operations training, and ongoing equipment and services training. Training services for iCRYO franchisees include: 

  • Whole Body Cryotherapy
  • Cryo Facials
  • Infrared Saunas
  • Compression Therapy
  • Body Sculpting and Contouring
  • IV Infusion Therapy and Vitamin Shots
  • Additional Recovery Services

The brand will help with site selection and construction through its own real estate and construction management teams. Once a franchise is ready to open, iCRYO also offers a full range of marketing support services, including pre-opening, post-opening and ongoing advertising support.

How Much Can iCRYO Franchise Owners Make?

Profit rates for iCRYO franchisees are not publicly available. However, iCRYO announced a record-setting year for sales in 2022, reaching two new massive sales records at a single location, surpassing $70,000 on a single day and $200,000 on a single month at one location. They are on pace to create potential multimillion-dollar annual revenue locations. 

How Much Does It Cost To Open an iCRYO Franchise?
