We are very active in site selection and lease negotiations and we provide consultation for both, Our Director of Franchise Development is a licensed commercial real estate professional (in province of Nova Scotia) and would be happy to assist in the process.
Who designs and builds the Spa?
The franchisor has extensive experience with design and construction and will provide you with a help and guidance taking this stress out of your hands. Enlighten Laser has developed a network of designers, architects, general contractors from whom we select the right providers for your location. However, you will be provided with a set of basic, non-site specific, plans and can submit them to any service providers of your choice. All plans must be submitted to us for review and approval. We work very closely with the service providers and contractors and are involved in the construction process from start to finish.

Once you receive possession of the leased premises from the landlord and you begin your leasehold improvements, it typically takes about 4 to 8 weeks for construction before you open the doors to the public.
What types of qualifications does Enlighten Laser look for in a franchisee?
Not everyone who applies for a franchise meets the criteria to become an Enlighten Laser Owner. For mutual success and satisfaction, we must ensure that every Spa Owner possesses the necessary skills, commitment level, dedication, work ethic, character and strong people skills required to succeed.
We do require that franchisees have some experience in any of the following areas: cosmetics, healthcare, sales, marketing, finance, small business ownership, operations, beauty industry, supervisory and excellent interpersonal skills, love working with people.
As well we require that the franchisee have knowledge of the community that their franchise will be located in and live in that area or in near proximity. This means you will know the community and will be able to build your business faster and more confidently.
Franchisees must also bring a passion for helping others feel better about themselves and in communicating the high quality image and reputation of the Enlighten brand.
Although financial soundness is a requirement it is not the deciding factor when short-listing candidates.
We franchise only to individuals who will be hands-on operators, not to passive investors.
How secure is the personal information I provide on my Application?
The information is 100% secure and totally confidential. We do not share the information and it is used solely in determining your candidacy as an Enlighten Laser franchisee. In the event that you decide not to move forward or are not qualified as a franchisee your information is destroyed.
What sales volume can I expect from a franchise?
Sales volume is highly dependent on numerous factors including the location, the ability of the franchisee to properly manage the business, economic conditions and the like.
Do I have to operate the Spa or can I simply invest?
Given the demands of such a personalized service, it is our policy to seek applicants that are committed to providing their full time attention to the business. It is important to know your clientele and to build a relationship with them. The very nature of the operation requires a personal commitment to the business. However, we do accept franchisees that have a silent or investment partner as long as the franchise operator owns a minimum of 25% equity in the franchisee company. We do not accept absentee owners.
What support is given for a new Spa opening?
A successful opening is a critical step in the development of an Enlighten Laser franchise operation. We assist the franchisee and its management teams with a “hands-on” support team both before and after you open your location to the public.
What ongoing support is given to a Franchisee?
The main function of the franchisor is to assist the franchisee by supporting their efforts in all key functions ranging from operations, to training, real estate development, construction, accounting, human resources, information technology, marketing, new product development and more. This is provided for via ongoing training during the term of the franchise agreement. Spa visits and consultations ensure that all Enlighten Laser’s specifications and standards are in place.
Do you insist on using a certain supplier?
Enlighten Laser is very quality conscious and only the most well researched and proven products make our short list and then into our locations. We only offer the best in skin, face, body and nail products, sourced from around the world as being recognized by the beauty industry for their innovation and demonstrated efficacy. It is therefore mandatory that all franchisees purchase their products only from approved suppliers. It is only in this way that we can assure that our clients have the same outstanding experience, and see the same benefits, in every Spa. Our purchasing is done through a designated supplier system, which ensures the reduced price benefit of bulk purchasing and stability in product inventory.
What does Enlighten Laser offer over its competitors?
Enlighten Laser & Skin Care Clinic is the Fastest Growing Laser & Skin Care Franchise in Canada and geographically the largest in the country with locations from Nova Scotia to Alberta.
Our competitors provide facial treatments, manicures and pedicures, or massages and facials, or hair removal, or some other combination of services BUT there is no one who offers the over 50 technologically advanced face and body treatments, (including manicures, pedicures and make-up) both with lasers and in aesthetics with the world’s most acclaimed brands. Once you have a client, they are a client for life; (unless they want a haircut…we don’t offer that….for now). Our prices rival any other spa or salon even at full price but the Membership Program is so affordable that anyone can sign up and enjoy the benefits of being their best self.
When you join our team you will be in the company of an experienced franchisor who understand that the franchise relationship works both ways. Striving to ensure the success of our franchisees is our Number 1 goal. Our franchisees are our most important partners and we value and appreciate their dedication to their business.
