The Woodhouse Day Spa, a high-end day spa franchise, has inked a franchise agreement to develop a location in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. The new spa, which is slated to open in Winter 2022, will officially expand the brand’s footprint into its 22nd state.
Spearheading The Woodhouse Day Spa’s North Carolina development are Sonal Patel and Esha Ray. Sonal is a distinguished multi-unit franchisee with more than 17 years of franchise industry experience, previously operating six Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins locations for 10 years. Since 2014, she has owned and operated two JEI Learning Centers in Cary, North Carolina, where she currently resides. Esha is a global supply chain expert, food importer and investor who will be Sonal’s business partner in this new venture. The two entrepreneurs are very passionate about luxury spas and have traveled all over the world for the best experiences.
“Being a longtime franchise operator and somewhat of a high-end luxury spa connoisseur, I was thrilled when I found The Woodhouse Day Spa because it felt like two of my worlds colliding,” said Sonal Patel. “I love that the brand provides a distinctive, transformative spa experience that you don’t have to travel hours or across the world to get to; it’s an accessible destination to relax and immerse yourself in a peaceful environment. Esha and I can’t wait to bring the first Woodhouse Day Spa to North Carolina and create a special place for local residents to practice their self-care, which has never been more important.”
Following The Woodhouse Day Spa’s acquisition by Radiance Holdings in July of last year, the brand is aggressively targeting key markets throughout the U.S. for franchise development, including North Carolina.
Founded in Victoria, Texas in 2001, The Woodhouse Day Spa operates as a high-end day spa franchise that brings a resort experience to a neighborhood setting. The brand prides itself on providing its guests with a tranquil and transformational spa experience with well-appointed amenities, luxurious relaxation spaces, high-end retail and several signature services such as the Therpeutic Stone Massage, Organic Seaweed Leaf Wrap, Warm Agave Nectar Pedicure and Lavender Dreams sleep treatment.
