From Running to Relaxation: Beem Light Sauna’s Newest Franchisee

We are excited to announce the newest owner of Beem Light Sauna: Mark Amway. An experienced business owner and recent retiree, Mark is ready to get back in the game with this new venture. 

Who Is Mark Amway?

A resident of central Pennsylvania, Mark is a veteran entrepreneur. Tapping into his passion for running, he owned a shoe store for 33 years, which he built out to three locations all by himself. After over three decades of running his stores, Mark was ready to retire – so he sold the locations to his sons and primed himself for days of golfing in sunny Florida. 

However, it did not take long until Mark realized he was not cut out for retirement. While he loved spending time on the greens and soaking up the sun, he missed the intellectual challenges and problem-solving associated with running a business. Looking for a semi-absentee option that would allow him the perfect balance of retirement relaxation and mental stimulation, Mark reached out to our team at FranCoach

Why Did Mark Make a Career Change?

Mark started working with FranCoach’s Krista Lowe early last year. Throughout the Discovery Process, he diligently took the time to consider what he did and did not want to do as an owner. His commitment to finding the perfect owner role involved vetting many different franchise options – but ultimately, Krista helped Mark discover his perfect match in Beem Light Sauna. 

Why Will Mark Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Franchise Coach Krista Lowe commented that working with Mark was a pleasure from start to finish. Here is what she has to say about why he is sure to succeed:

“Mark has already built three retail stores from scratch all based on his passion for health and fitness. Now, he is partnering with a franchise that is also part of the retail health sector. As a franchise owner, Mark will get to enjoy everything he likes about business ownership with the support of a high-quality brand to support him through the more challenging aspects. Retail is his comfort zone, and with his wealth of experience, I am certain we will see great things from Mark very soon.” 

Why Did Mark Choose Beem Light Sauna?

Beem Light Sauna is a wellness center that combines a refined, spa-like setting with proven light therapy offerings, including infrared light therapy, red light therapy, and chromotherapy. Situated in the $4.9 trillion wellness industry, Beem provides its franchisees with the opportunity to get in on the cultural shift toward holistic healing with unmatched support and industry-leading sales and operational training. 

Beem’s Jordan Reed helped Mark gain a strong understanding of all that the brand offers. He attended an in-person Meet the Team Day, during which he was able to experience Beem from both the client side and the owner side, and truly fell in love with the concept. Mark has secured two locations in central Pennsylvania, and he is excited to kick off this new chapter of his life as a business owner growing this emerging brand. 

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Mark Amway and wishing him luck as a new owner of Beem Light Sauna.
