A leading wellness and spa company, ORIKI Group, said it has concluded plans to launch its franchise-training institute this week as part of activities marking its six years anniversary.
The franchise-training institute would support businesses and professionals, as well influence industry standards across Africa, Founder and Managing Director of the ORIKI Group, Joycee Awosika, disclosed in a statement issued to journalists.
The ORIKI founder added: “The franchise will afford both corporate entities and individuals the opportunity to own a spa and wellness business and invest in a proven model of recurring revenue. The Franchise system offers end-to-end support that will ensure sustainable business growth and profitability for participants.
“Also the ORIKI Training Institute (OTI) which is the first of its kind indigenous training institute that couples consultancy, will offer comprehensive training programs for spa professionals and individuals interested in venturing into the spa and wellness industry and up skilling.”
She continued that the launch of the franchise and training institute would be a testament to the tremendous growth of the ORIKI brand in the last six years, adding that it also underscored the Group’s commitment to empowering lives and engendering economic growth.
According to Awosika: “Having been a part of the development of seven spas in the past six years, we have noticed a gap in the market for professionally trained and knowledgeable therapists. Conscious Wellness is here to stay and thus we need more hands.
“The launch of the training institute signifies our commitment to job creation and training expert therapists to fill the demand in the sector. The launch of the franchise further signifies our passion to democratize wellness and to bring ORIKI spas to communities across Africa and the world.”
