Bangor, ME

A Body In Knead started June 2009 under “Break of Dawn massage therapy”. As of March 2010 we relocated to Brewer and changed name to A Body In Knead, upgrading from one massage room to 3 massage rooms, tanning room, nail room, waiting/reception area. From the beginning, we had a contract with Hollywood Slots under Pamper Me Package. The hotel booked everything, called us and we went into room for 45 minutes couples massage. This went on for about 7 years. This alone brought in about $10,000 of income a year at its peak. In 2012 we removed the tanning bed and added hair services to the spa. We also added basic facials adding our very own label to an organic line. The company we purchase from allows us to change formulas and has a very wide variety of other products other than facial products. April 1st, 2013 we relocated to 263 State Street in Bangor, our current location. It has been expanded and now has 2700 sq feet of space. This space includes 7 massage rooms (2 or 3 can be used as couples rooms), 1 room is also a waxing/aesthetician room, private double station hair room, double pedicure chairs, a separate manicure room, 2 waiting areas, 2 bathrooms and reception area. Up until 2015 A Body In Knead employed all staff. In 2013 this included over 17 staff. At the beginning of 2015 we switched over to subcontracting. This can easily be switched back due to the unique category of hair/massage/nail care service industry. Over the years we have built up an excellent reputation in the Bangor area and surrounding areas as far as Northern Maine and Southern Maine as well as in the Downeast area where clients travel to see us. We have worked with several businesses over the years becoming part of their wellness programs. City of Bangor has hired us for over 4 years now to go to each of their locations 1 to 2 times a year for chair massages. We have gone to banks bi-weekly, businesses quarterly for years to bring spa services to their locations. We are also called for Water Front Concert series to massage musicians who request massage therapist for themselves and staff. We have been doing this for 4 years now. A Body In Knead has built over 10,000 client files with over 5,740 Facebook fans. We have built up a reputation of quality work with providers in area and are commonly referred from Dr.’s, Chiropractors and other medical professionals. Almost everyone in Bangor has heard of "A Body In Knead". In 2017 we found out that we won 7 out of 10 best Spas in Maine, competing with Cape Elizabeth to Bar Harbor, all over Maine. We were tagged in this article on Facebook from Best of Maine. The last few years, we have had sales between $250,000 to $300,000 while running on “skeleton crew”. We haven’t paid for advertising other than minimal Facebook ads around holidays for 3 years. Yet we still bring in over 100 new clients a month through reputation and word of mouth. The owner has been having health issues, which is why the spa is running lower then capacity. With staffing and advertising this business could easily make over $500,000 a year. There is no current lease, however the landlord would welcome a new lease on the area we occupy now. The owner is willing to be a consultant to help the transfer of ownership and transition. We have an LLC drawn up by Rudman and Winchell. We have been a registered LLC with state since 2010. We have a handbook drawn up by Rudman and Winchell. Our website, brochures and business cards are all designed and maintained by a local business owner as well. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a spa with an amazing reputation and footprint in community. The hard work has been accomplished, all that is needed is a good management, a little restructure and it can be back to the top of the fastest growing medical industry.
