Perspire Sauna Studio, one of the nation’s fastest-growing sauna franchise brands specializing in full-spectrum infrared (IR) and red-light therapy (RLT), has capped a quarter of continued franchise expansion unlike any the brand has witnessed to date.
Among Perspire’s 30 newly signed agreements for Q2 are two consecutive multi-unit deals that will bring 13 studios to Southwest Florida, from Tampa to Naples. These deals mark a significant milestone, as they have collectively allowed Perspire to sell out the territory. Spearheading the developments are local entrepreneurs Jason Sluka and Pete Kapinos, who signed on to bring 10 studios to the area, and Mike Polikretis, who signed for 3 additional studios in a separate agreement.
“The demand for holistic options to improve our overall health is evident in the 30 licenses awarded this past quarter, including a milestone territory sellout,” said Jackie Mendes, Perspire Sauna Studio Vice President of Franchise Development. “The demand for infrared sauna and red-light therapy continues to grow. Our 10+ years of experience in this business puts Perspire Sauna Studio franchisees in the unique position to capitalize on the wellness boom quickly with a brand that’s proven to scale.”
In addition to navigating a robust trajectory for growth in the coming months, the Perspire team opened three new studios in Q2, all of which are second locations with existing franchisees, and signed on to expand in eight new territories, including New York, where a franchisee recently signed for a 3-unit deal.
“This remarkable growth is a testament to the dedication and passion of our team “ said Lee Braun, founder and CEO of Perspire Sauna Studio.
