Hand & Stone makes a difference at 4C
Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, the nation’s fastest growing massage and skin care franchise, kicked off a three-day national conference in Orlando on Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017. with an off-site Community Project at 4C and a major donation. Volunteers from across the United States, including Oregon, Chicago, Philadelphia and Long Island, painted, mulched and planted to spruce up the facility that serves children and families with low-incomes in Central Florida.
“4C is such a great cause that gives back to Central Florida’s children and their families, and it’s the perfect way to kick-off the conference,” said Rob Beers, Franchisee and Regional Developer in Central Florida. “It’s always a rewarding experience to have owners from all over the country get together and help out in the local community – and we’re excited to have the conference and the community service project so close to home in Orlando this year!”
The philanthropy also included a $5,000 donation from Hand & Stone Corporate Headquarters. Then President and CEO Todd Leff matched that contribution through the Leff Family Foundation. “We believe we have a corporate responsibility to have franchisees and corporate staff participate in a community service project that gives back to communities that support our brand all year long,” Leff said. “It’s a feel-good event that brings everyone together and really sets the tone for skill building and learning throughout the conference.”
