Zen Massage® Franchise Owner Spotlight – Mickey Jefferson

”I’d worked in retail for 18 years and got a massage for the first time in ’07 and thought that was the best thing in the world.”  That was enough motivation for Zen franchise owner Mickey Jefferson.  He started talking with wife Darlene about looking into Zen Massage® franchise ownership.  Now, they own the franchise at Austell Promenade in the Atlanta GA area, and have another spa opening in Douglasville, GA in January.

“I’m still working with people, just in a different way.  I enjoy the concept of Zen providing a high quality massage at a reduced cost.”  Their most popular services are the Deep Tissue and Swedish massages.

“I want to develop our customer base,” Jefferson says.  He purchased the Austell location in November and wants to immediately step up advertising and networking.  “I just joined the Chamber of Commerce.  We’re developing more visibility on the west side of Cobb County.”

Customers at the Austell Zen Massage® are enjoying a completely refurbished salon, with new linens, brighter colors and an energized staff.  They may also see a bigger sign on the marquee out front of the Austell location and some Zen Massage® reminders before movies at the adjacent theater.

“It just feels great to provide an excellent service at this price point.  Other massage franchises offer an inexpensive massage but charge a monthly fee.  There are no hidden fees with Zen.  Its just quality service at a reasonable price.”
