The company’s second franchised location is slated to open in Houston’s River Oaks neighborhood in February with multi-unit franchisee Jeff Stocks. The Gents Place signed an additional franchise agreement for development in San Antonio with Cecilia Johnson, who is also chief financial officer of Massage Heights Franchising, LLC. Additionally, The Gents Place will open its fifth corporate-owned club in February located at 3227 McKinney Ave. in the eclectic Uptown area. Marking the fourth location for the brand throughout Dallas, with another club slated to open in the city later this summer.
