Here are some ideas to stay socially engaged and give back during these unprecedented times.

Social Engagement: High

What’s What: If you’re looking for a business opportunity that’s growing in popularity across the country in the exploding wellness space, check out True REST, the leading flotation therapy franchise in the country.

Amava Take: Flotation therapy is the miraculous process of relaxing the human body and mind in an anti-gravity, zero-distraction environment. With the body supported and minimal tactile sensation, people can fully let go and enter a euphoric relaxation. Often, customers enter a theta brain wave state when floating, which is associated with deep meditation, creativity, and dreaming. If you’re interested or already a floating enthusiast and you want to own your own business, get to know True REST. 

From the Front Lines:

What kinds of people make successful True REST owners?

People who have a passion for floating, share True REST’s core values of honesty, integrity and responsibility and are focused on owning and managing a rapidly growing business. 

Does the True REST team provide operations support?

Yes! The True REST University interactive online portal has videos for team training. Team members make site support visits and provide home office consultations. True REST has a comprehensive intranet portal with an operations manual, store documents and an online store. There are also monthly webinars with other franchisees and an annual conference featuring classroom sessions and roundtable discussions.

What’s a typical initial investment?

From about $360,000 to $779,000.

From the Trenches:  

What interests you most about owning a True REST?

I want to be part of a well-established and modern consumer brand in the wellness space.

How would you describe the support that True REST provides franchisees?

It’s super comprehensive. True REST provides in depth support before and after launch. This includes territory selection, lease support and standard plan/build out specifications, on-site assistance, telephone and email guidance, on-site business consultations, help with periodic advertising, marketing and promotional materials and help maintaining and promoting the franchise through a microsite.

What’s the best part of being connected to True REST?

Running a business that gives people some rest from the anxiety and stress of modern life is extremely rewarding.
