About Kim/Vereb Group
Henry and Stephen come to the concept with impressive resumes. While engaged in successful careers as Corporate Business Developers, they both had entrepreneurial aspirations.
In 2006, they began researching a variety of concepts and unearthed Massage Envy. The company launched the Massage Envy Spa concept in 2009 to build upon consumer demand for affordable access to healthy skincare treatments. Massage Envy customers benefit from facials and skincare treatments designed by one of the world’s foremost leaders in skin health.
After due diligence, they were confident this was the business for them. Opening their first clinic in 2007, they quickly attained success and in just two short years, were bestowed the prestigious Massage Envy Franchisee of the Year Award for operational excellence. They currently own and operate five high-performing Massage Envy clinics.
Today, there are more than 1,100 locations, making it the largest system of franchised massage and spa centers in the industry. The company also is the world’s largest employer of licensed/registered massage therapists.
Open seven days a week, each Massage Envy offers convenient times and locations to fit all its members' needs.
In 2015, realizing the overwhelming demand for skilled massage therapists, they founded the American Massage and Bodywork Institute (AMBI) in Vienna, Virginia. Later that same year, while looking for diversification opportunities, they were introduced to the Amazing Lash Studio concept and were instantly enamored.
“Like Massage Envy, this is a first to market concept that provides a service that is convenient and affordable,” says Stephen. “It is ideal for the consumer, the stylist, and the franchise owner. We are thrilled to come in at the takeoff of this business.”
