Jon’Ric International was founded by CEO Jon’Ric Rando, Ph.D. in 1983 in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Since then, Rando has opened many additional locations under the Jon’Ric name, as corporate-owned salons and spas as well as many for independent owners. “When we opened our first spa in June 1983, we were at the right place at the right time in the industry. There were no big-chain accounts yet,” Rando says. “We think our name, Jon’Ric International, had a lot to do with that. It was a unique, cool name that worked.”
“Sometimes a name really can make a difference in a company.”
Jon’Ric International offers many unique advantages and benefits that are rarely found in the industry. They have nine different business models that franchisees can choose from and or combine in their stores to offer customers the most services at one place. This makes each and every Jon’Ric location a more viable and competitive business than other salons and spas.
“We will do everything. You can do massage, facial, skincare, haircuts, anything,” Rando says. “The owner of the franchise can cherry-pick what they like.” “You can custom tailor to the geographic region that you’re in,” he adds. “If you’re building in a shopping centre, you might design it and have it look one certain way. If you’re in an old bank building, you might have it look another different way.”
This unique business model attracts customers and franchise partners alike. What Jon’Ric International offers franchisees is one-time and affordable franchise fee and ongoing fixed royalty fees that aren’t tied to a percentage, Rando explains. “We have no advertising fee, no marketing fee, and no management fees. After they pay the franchise fee, that’s it.”
Jon’Ric International is always on the lookout for new franchisees. When evaluating their prospects, they look for people who have grown tired of working a routine 9 to 5 job and are looking for more than just a weekly paycheck. They want a person who can remove themselves from their comfort zone and take risks to make their business successful. “An entrepreneur is somebody who is not afraid to take risks to reach a reward that is substantial,” he says. “We’re looking for entrepreneurs.”
A franchisee isn’t required to have previous business experience because the company provides them with the necessary training, support, and manuals to handle day-to-day operations, and any issues they may encounter. “We take someone who’s never been an entrepreneur before and give them an A-Z step-by-step manual with what to do, how they do it and what they do next,” Rando says. “We show them the ropes.”
Franchisees are initially supported with a one-week training program they can either take at their headquarters in Florida or are provided with one or two trainers to come to their location if they’re outside the state and have a significant number of staff. “This way they’re not only training the owner, but they can be training the whole staff,” Rando says.

Every six months, Jon’Ric International will send someone from corporate to the franchisee’s location to check on their progress or to make changes or recommendations. “The beauty of our franchise is you do not have to be somebody who is there 24 hours a day. Many of our owners are absentee owners,” Rando says.
Relaxed at every level
Jon’Ric International employs 14 corporate-level staff and currently operates 56 franchise locations in the United States and 17 internationally. Rando describes the corporate culture at Jon’Ric International as easy-going. Franchisees are encouraged to duplicate that atmosphere and foster a relaxed work environment. “It comes second nature to us,” Rando says. “We have a collective mix of staff – from businessmen in finance to beauty professionals and marketing people. There’s no glass ceiling in our companies.”
Technology also comes second nature to Jon’Ric International and constitutes an important part of their unique business model. They incorporate sophisticated software and computers that run the business and keep track of everything. They also utilize numerous security cameras in each facility for safety, and for absentee owners to monitor their spas when they’re a “million miles away,” Rando says. In addition, they remodel every four or five years to stay current with technological advancements in the beauty industry. “Advances are happening every six months with new inventions and tools, new styling equipment – the actual hardware, stations, chairs, floors, and lighting – all that is constantly evolving,” Rando says.
At the moment, Jon’Ric International adds four to six new locations domestically every year. Overseas, their growth is even more substantial with locations in South America, Europe, the Middle East and India popping up frequently. “We took the initiative to grow our company and bring the American dream to other countries,” Rando says. “Every country outside of the U.S.A, for the most part, loves American brands, American products, and the American know-how.” “They’re excited and very interested to bring a part of America to them,” he adds. “Our greatest growth opportunity is overseas.” Looking ahead longer term, Rando sees their expansion plans doubling in size. To help them reach the next level, they are looking at bringing in additional investors and partners to elevate Jon’Ric International as a global leader in spas and salons. “A smart businessman knows when he’s brought his company as far as he can, and now it’s time to bring in people more qualified at taking a successful business to the next level,” Rando says. “We’re ready to partner with bigger groups to take what we’ve done in the last 30 years and make that happen a lot quicker in the next 30 years.”

All of our locations take great pride in offering the industry’s best services and providing great results for our clientele, and it shows! Take a look at some of these great reviews from happy customers across the country:

Donna W.

I have had the pleasure of having 2 laser treatments performed by [the doctor] at Jon’Ric Medical Spa and Wellness Center. First of all, [he] is so pleasant to work with and certainly very well trained in cosmetic medical treatments. I could tell a difference after the first treatment. I am really excited about the results I am seeing now after my second treatment. No one likes wrinkles and it is wonderful that they can be treated. What I appreciate the most is that [the doctor] took the time to listen to my concerns about my skin and my long term objectives and then recommended a treatment plan just for me. His team is very helpful and makes the experience at Jon’Ric even more pleasurable.


Lauren M.

I recently went to Jon ‘Ric for a massage and manicure. As soon as I arrived I was treated like royalty. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to have me there as a customer… The massage was amazing. I have chronic back pain and [my massage therapist] was able to locate the problem areas with little direction. I also prefer deep tissue massage and he was able to provide adequate pressure to relieve the tension. Throughout the massage he made sure that I was comfortable and made any adjustments needed to ensure that I was completely happy. [My manicurist] was very meticulous and ensured that I walked out looking fabulous. Overall a great experience. I’m looking forward to using their services again in the near future.


Tammy L.

Love the salon and the staff is amazing. All are really friendly and welcoming, my daughter and I have been clients for years. Paula is great! She listens to what you want and makes it happen!!! Not stuffy and uncomfortable like some “spa” salons. It is immaculately clean and tastefully decorated and they always make you feel comfortable.


Maria P.

Very nice atmosphere, excellent service. My stylist knew exactly what I wanted… [Their staff] were very friendly and attentive.


Judy L.

I’m always thrilled when I leave… Everyone is friendly and [the] owner is a PRO. I will be back again and again….THANK YOU…!


Michelle B.

Came in to make an appointment and [they] actually took me right then and there! She listened to what I wanted… Good conversation and polite. Love the…environment, simple yet trendy and clean. Love the products they carry.


Natasha W.

Excellent hours – very important for those of us with varying schedules. They offer a wide variety of massage services and almost all the therapists I’ve seen seem to genuinely care and want you to leave feeling great. I’ve been a member for a few years and it’s a great way to save money.


Danielle E.

I had a really wonderful experience at Jon Ric… [The doctor] is very knowledgeable and I’m thrilled to have found this med spa. The entire staff is so welcoming and friendly. Also very reasonable prices, goodbye character lines and I look forward to cool sculpting, facial, and laser hair removal.


Becca W.

This place is beyond nice… The entire staff is wonderful and they have full service spa – and deals on Groupon!! Go! You won’t be disappointed!!!


Rod S.

Finding a consistently good hair stylist is not an easy task. This review is more for my wife than me. We have been to many places… and I have [to] say that my wife’s hair color has NEVER looked as good as it does now… [My wife’s stylist] seems to really know what she’s doing. As long as my wife’s happy, we’ll continue to go here.

Jon`Ric Products – Meet TanTowel’s Face Tan

The desire for a gorgeous glow continues to grow, and there is no shortage of self-tanners available on the market today. When it comes to trusting a self-tanner to work well on their face, users are often intimidated – and rightfully so.

Sprays can get in the eyes, nose and mouth, mousses and mitts can get messy and stain, gradual tanners need to be used often and don’t develop color on the skin quick enough. It’s not just the mess or fuss that makes for a poor experience, but the results of a bad self-tan can be embarrassing, especially when it’s on your face. This is why TanTowel has created Face Tan. This new self-tan towelette easily reaches the delicate areas on the face and neck, hydrates, and ensures an even distribution of self-tan that won’t go too dark, too fast.

Face Tan patented towelettes are infused with a clear self-tan liquid, and anti-aging properties designed specifically for the face. This advanced formula will hydrate your skin while developing a sun-kissed glow, without the harmful effects of UVA and UVB ray exposure.

Face Tan is formulated with Aloe Vera, Pro Vitamin B5 and Pentavitin® to increase skin hydration and provides the skin a healthy-looking sunless glow. The multi-tasking towelette design exfoliates, tans and moisturizes the face, providing a streak-free flawless application. Multiple applications provide the user the power to build a customizable natural-looking color for any skin tone. The advanced hydrating formula specifically designed for the delicate face, creates a healthy and glowing complexion in a few hours.

Using this product is as easy to use as the TanTowel Classic and Plus body towelettes that fans, bloggers, editors and dermatologists have come to love. Unfold the towelette and apply evenly to clean, dry skin in circular motions over the face, neck and décolleté. To build color, allow for at least 4 hours between each application. Then, just wash hands immediately after use.

Face Tan is a paraben free, cruelty free product that will be available

A Premier Franchisor

Jon’Ric International: Premier worldwide franchisor of upscale full-service salons & day spas!

Jon‘Ric International is the premier worldwide franchisor of upscale full-service salons & day spas, dental spas, medical spas and other specialized spas.

No other Spa Company has our ability for Spa development both inside or outside the USA. The Wellness Industry is one of the fastest growing business segments around the globe. Up untill few years ago, spas were primarily “pampering palaces” for the rich and famous. Technological advancements, changing demographics, an ever increasing wellness awareness and advent of alternative medicine have helped the spa industry to become a driving force in the hospitality and health industry. Growth rates are almost unprecedented! Jon‘Ric International has always specialized in the beauty segment and has helped transform the industry. Jon‘Ric International and its franchise program allow you to easily and quickly capitalize on this historic change. Get started now!


Buying a Jon’Ric International Franchise eliminates all the hard work: we help you in finding a location, negotiating a lease, hiring reliable contractors and doing all this on-time and within budget.


The first thing Jon’Ric Franchises offer franchisees is a strategic identity that is not only effective, but has cumulative market impact. Corporate Brand Identities are proven. A successful brand is one that is remembered and Jon’Ric franchises has one of the most successful brand identities in the world.


When you buy a franchise you buy a system. All Jon’Ric franchises have an already-established system in place that you will follow. This system is designed to improve the overall productivity and increase your sales. Having a proven system already in place eliminates the guesswork and common errors a business owner would normally face and gives you a much higher likelihood of success.


Lenders are usually very comfortable financing the purchase of a franchise because they already have a proven track record. Bankers usually look at successful franchise chains as having a lower risk of repayment default and are more likely to loan money based on that premise. In addition, some franchise systems even provide in-house financing and/or leasing options.


Jon’Ric International offers an intensive 1 week training program that will be held at one of our Wellness Spa locations. We will train you to run your franchise exactly the same way their other franchise locationsare run. This will ensure that you are running your business efficiently and will help to eliminate any common mistakes a new business owner usually faces.


When you buy a Jon’Ric franchise you are never alone. You will always have our support and you will always be able to pick up the phone and ask us questions.Ongoing and online support is always available. Jon’Ric wants you to be successful and we make ourselves available every step of the way. After all, our success is your success!


When you buy a Jon’Ric International Franchise, you are also buying an exclusive territory in which to do business. We only allow a certain amount of franchises to be open within a certain geographical region. You will be entitled to a certain area and no other franchises can be open within that area.


Being a part of a Jon’Ric franchise system will always offer you more opportunities to grow within the system. Once you have become a successful Jon’Ric franchise owner the next step is to become a multi unit franchise owner. After you have one successful franchise open with a great management team, you can focus on opening a second location. Opening multiple franchise locations can be very lucrative.
