Day spas have become very popular businesses to own and operate theĀ United StatesĀ as most people view their going to a day spa as a necessity. This is especially true if the days offers a number of services including cosmetology as well as hair styling services. These types of services do not tend to decline in times of economic distress. The barriers to entry for a new day spa are considered to be moderate. Generally, the startup costs range anywhere from $75,000-$300,000 depending on the scale and scope of the business from the onset of operations. For businesses that offer less intensive and nonmedical treatments, the startup costs will be on the lower end of that range. The gross margins generated from day spas are usually very high. As this is a service business, gross margins generally range from 90% to 97% depending on the type of service offered. One of the largest underlying costs associated with operating a day spa is whether or not the people rendering the services are considered employees or independent contractors. In most instances, they spas treat their staff as independent contractors that received a negotiated portion of any services they render on-site. This is important to note as many people that will work with these businesses do require specialized licensure in order to provide better services to the general public.

The day spa business plan is pretty easy to develop. As with any business plan, a document specific for a day spa should have a three-year financial model including a profit and loss statement, cash analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, as well as important business ratios that a potential investor, bank, or financial institution can use to determine whether or not to provide capital for this type of business. Generally speaking, it is relatively easy to get a business loan or SBA loan to develop these types of businesses. An owner or entrepreneur that is looking to start a day spa should expect that they will be required to put up 20% of the underlying costs associated with this type of business development.

Your day spa marketing plan should focus heavily on how you intend to market your services to customers within a local market. Most importantly, it is imperative that a large-scale print advertising campaign is done as many people find local businesses still be a local newspapers as well as periodicals. Is also very important to have a massive online presence that not only includes a proprietary website but also includes usage of social media platforms including FaceBook and twitter. For usage of social media, many times entrepreneurs that own and operate day spas will announce specialized deals and discounts through their social media pages. This is one of the ways that these businesses become successful especially if a business develops a very reputation.

A SWOT analysis is also often created so that a business owner can determine whether or not a day spa is an economically viable investment. In regards to strengths, day spas, again, usually generate very high gross margins from their services. One of the primary weaknesses faced by these businesses is the ongoing competitive threats that are faced by any business that operates the local market. For business expansion and opportunities, most day spas usually will hire specialty staff including massage therapists and specially trained physicians that can render specialized services on staff. It is not only great additional revenue, but also provides a way to differentiate the day spa from other businesses in the local market. For threats, there is no known threat outside of the negative change the economy that will impact the way of these businesses conduct their operations.

In closing, a day spa can be a great investment provided that the owner is very hands-on and is prepared to operate this business on a day-to-day basis with a heavy focus on bottom-line and. There are there is always going to be continued demand for day spa services despite changes in the economy and changes in technology.
