What is Wake Foot Sanctuary?
Wake is an indulgent, fun, and shared spa experience. Guests lounge in our sanctuary space, enjoying luxurious foot soaks with relaxing massage. We serve so many guests from all walks of life, but each person is desiring a Sanctuary space to call their own for a little while. They may come to rejuvenate with a friend, celebrate a special night out, or just experience their own personal soak time. Whatever their reason, our mission remains consistent: to provide service excellence to every guest that walks through our doors.
Wake Foot Sanctuary is an innovative concept in the multi-billion dollar spa industry. The company has experienced rapid development, averaging year of year growth of 50% since opening in May of 2013. Additionally, Wake Foot Sanctuary has established industry-leading revenue per square foot. We have proven the model and we are excited for franchisees to be able to bring alive a Wake Foot Sanctuary spa.

With the spa industry registering 155.8 million visits every year with a triple figure annual growth expected in the next 10 years, Wake is poised to capitalize on larger category growth as well as emerging trends.
