Multi-Unit Investors Become Largest Franchisees in the
Elements Massage and Amazing Lash Studio Systems
Englewood, CO (May 27, 2020) – WellBiz Brands, Inc., the nation’s premiere franchisor of wellness, fitness and beauty brands announced today the company has awarded seven corporately owned Amazing Lash Studio® locations in Arizona and six Elements Massage® corporately owned locations in Colorado in two separate agreements. Both investors were already established within the WellBiz Brands portfolio of companies and now become the largest multi-unit franchise owners in their respective franchise brands.
Don Gatzemeier acquired the seven corporately owned Arizona Amazing Lash Studio locations. Gatzemeier is an experienced multi-unit, multi-brand franchise industry veteran and joined the Elements Massage system in October 2012. He currently also owns four Elements Massage studios in Arizona, as well as studios from other franchise brands. He was named the Elements Massage Franchisee of the Year in 2015. Gatzemeier’s understanding of the Greater Phoenix market as well as the franchise operations team he has in place will enable him and his team to continue providing exceptional service to Amazing Lash Studio members and clients.
Dan Demolli, who previously served as WellBiz Brands’ vice president of franchise development acquired six of the eight Elements Massage corporately owned studios in Colorado. Demolli had been with WellBiz Brands since October 2018. He has over 28 years of franchise experience, including roles as franchisee, area director and multiple leadership positions in franchise sales. WellBiz Brands will continue to own and operate two Elements Massage studios in the Denver market.
“Having two investors commit to such significant multi-unit agreements is not only a testament to the strength of the Amazing Lash Studio and Elements Massage brands, but also to the support systems they have in place as part of the WellBiz Brands portfolio,” says WellBiz Brands CEO Jeremy Morgan. “Don and Dan now become our two largest multi-unit owners and we look forward to continuing to work with them to grow their businesses.”
