Hand & Stone Continues Major Colorado Expansion

New Jersey-based spa franchise plans for big numbers in Denver.

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa has hit 12 open locations in Colorado. However, that number is forecast to reach 16 over the next 18 months, according to the company’s CEO.

“Denver’s one of our top markets in the country,” CEO Todd Leff told BusinessDen. “It fits our demographics – being healthy and active.”

The first Denver location will be run by Laura Huang, who graduated from the University of Denver in 2012 with an MBA.

“I was looking into opening a business, and of course I wanted to do something I liked,” she told BusinessDen. “That industry matched up with my passion.”

Currently, there are 215 Hand & Stone locations across 23 states and in Canada.
