1.Check out the competition.You’ll need to know what they’re offering and what price points they have chosen. Consider getting a massage or some spa services at these other establishments while doing your research.
2.Choose what services you want to offer. This is just a rough draft of what you want to offer but it will help you determine how much space you need for your day spa. For example, you may want to offer pedicures and manicures, massage services, body wraps, facials, hair styling, spray tanning and a Vichy shower. Note that some services will affect the layout of your plumbing and electrical supply. Also, do some research to find out how much space each room will require.
3.Scout out a location that would work. You need to be some distance away from any other spas but located in a section of town that has wealthy or upscale residents. At the very least, you need to be easily accessible to the people who will use your services. You may choose to build your own building, renovate an existing building or try to find a building that will work as-is.
