Latest Transaction Highlights Boxwood’s Expansion into the Health and Wellness Sector within Franchising
JUPITER, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 26, 2022 / Boxwood Partners is pleased to announce that VIO Med Spa (“the Company”), a national, all-inclusive med spa providing the latest cutting-edge technologies and therapies offered in the wellness and aesthetics industry, has received a strategic growth capital investment from Tucker’s Farm Corporation (“Tucker’s Farm”). At the time of acquisition, the Strongville, Ohio-based company had 12 franchise locations and 1 corporate-owned location.
Boxwood Partners, a leading boutique middle-market investment bank based in Jupiter, FL, acted as the exclusive buy-side advisor to Tucker’s Farm on the transaction. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The transaction marks Boxwood’s 2nd transaction within the health and wellness sector and 8th transaction of 2022.
Founded by Joe and Nick Stanoszek, VIO Med Spa has 13 locations open across six states with 40 new locations scheduled to open by the end of 2023. Subsequent to the investment by Tucker’s Farm, the Company plans to continue its national expansion, invest in human infrastructure, expand training and education, explore emerging operational and technology platforms and further the development of additional corporate-owned locations. Every VIO Med Spa location stresses a best-in-class experience and adheres to the company motto: delivering safe, easy, and life-changing results.
The VIO Med Spa transaction represents Tucker’s Farm’s most recent franchisor and multi-unit franchisee investment, following successful partnerships within the European Wax Center system and Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken. Tucker’s Farm plans to take a similar approach as those investments by investing heavily in the team, infrastructure, and new corporate-owned locations to further drive growth.
“VIO Med Spa is an emerging leader within the health and wellness sector as consumers have embraced med spa services and injectables as an important part of maintaining their physical & mental health. Furthermore, franchisors within the sector have continued to increase their footprints while offering affordable membership programs at quality and consistent service levels,” said Brian Alas, Managing Director of Boxwood Partners. “The Company’s partnership with Tucker’s Farm will provide the necessary resources to continue its expansion plans.”
