Grand Opening of New Spa in Quartermaster Plaza

Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, the nation’s leading luxury massage and facial spa franchise, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in South Philadelphia. Located at 2304 W. Oregon Ave. in Quartermaster Plaza, the new Hand & Stone spa is owned and operated by experienced franchisees and husband-and-wife team Joe and Bryn Erace. The couple opened their first Hand & Stone in 2014 and have quickly grown their footprint to include five other spas in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and others throughout the greater Philadelphia area, including a Cottman Avenue location that opened earlier this year.

As health and wellness enthusiasts, the Eraces have a passion for Hand & Stone and commitment to serving their communities, which has propelled their growth and made them two of the most successful franchisees in the brand's system. With the opening of their new spa, Joe and Bryn bring Hand & Stone’s signature luxury spa experience to South Philadelphia, making high-end wellness services affordable and accessible to the local community.

“Joe and I continue to grow this business because we love the positive effect it has on the communities we serve,” said Bryn Erace, co-owner of Hand & Stone Quartermaster. “Our massage and facial services help our neighbors invest in taking care of themselves and give them an opportunity to de-stress. We are fortunate to work with amazing teams at each of our spas who love helping others live a healthier life. Building this rewarding business and adding another location in Philadelphia – Joe’s hometown – is a dream come true for us.”

The newest Hand & Stone in South Philadelphia brings high-quality professional massage services, including Swedish, Himalayan Salt, Sports, Deep Tissue, Oncology and Prenatal massages to the local community. Guests can also visit the new Quartermaster spa to enjoy Hand & Stone’s signature hot stone massage and best-in-class facial treatments tailored to each individual's needs or skin concerns, with a wide-range of services available for women, men and teens.

All Hand & Stone services are performed by experienced licensed estheticians and massage therapists.
