    Dear Entrepreneur,

    Thank you for your interest in our franchise program and congratulations on taking your first step towards becoming a Wonderfloat franchisee! As experienced business owners, we realize that one of the keys to success lies in choosing a business within an industry that matches your own interests, abilities and financial situation.
    Being a business owner can be quite liberating as it offers a sense of accomplishment, flexibility, and is financially rewarding. Through our careful screening process we ensure that we select only those individuals who possess the passion, attitude, personality, work ethic and commitment required to be successful in running a Wonderfloat Spa.

    At Wonderfloat we recognize the growing need for unique wellness services that can benefit absolutely everyone. With this is mind we have created a franchise system that allows you to grow a rewarding, profitable, scalable business model. For the smart investor the most attractive feature of our highly engineered concept is the systems automation that means very low overhead. 1-2 experienced staff can easily manage the day-to-day operations, while assisted by our Call Centre for bookings and inquiries. There is no requirement for special certifications, which makes Wonderfloat ideal for the self-employed or family business. Our membership based model, coupled with the most advanced flotation pod technology in the world and complimented by services such as Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna and Zero Gravity massage create a winning recipe for success. We will even be offering 24/7 scheduling at select locations and a Special Pass option for elite club members that will be able to use the facilities after regular hours.

    What Makes Wonderfloat Unique?

    Wonderfloat represents the float spa of the future, a unique, exciting concept in the wellness industry that blends state of the art technology with a strong set of core values and principles. We offer the highest quality service from the moment the customer books their appointment to the moment they walk out the door and long after. We are the North American distributor of the original Float Spa Premium Floating Cabin, the world’s top brand in the flotation industry. This gives us and our partners an undisputed competitive advantage, as most flotation systems out there still look and feel like a freezer box or glorified hot tub. While many float centers are cutting costs on their build-out and using inferior equipment, we are investing in the best construction materials and technology creating a luxurious, yet sustainable environment that inspires, amazes and draws people towards the Wonderfloat brand. Our goal is to create the world’s most recognizable and responsible float spas in communities that share our Values, Vision and Purpose.

    We build our facilities for maximum operational efficiency in customer flow, upkeep, and maintenance. We have the lowest carbon footprint in this industry and are actively promoting our commitment to protecting the environment by engaging our customers and the communities we serve. Due to our highly efficient model, our staff can spend more time focused on the customer and less time tending to the facilities. We are able to provide a “smart business” turnkey operation backed by an excellent support system that involves a collaborative approach when it comes to training and marketing.
