Featured Speaker – Nicholas Marco, Regional Developer of Ohio, Hand & Stone Massage
Nicholas Marco is the Regional Developer of Ohio for Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, a 350+ unit franchise open throughout the United States and Canada. He has been part of the brand since its inception, as he is the owner of the original Hand & Stone location, which has been open in Toms River, NJ since 2004.
In addition to the original location, Nicholas owns two more locations in NJ with his sister, Tara; all of his locations have at least 2,000 members. Passion for Hand & Stone flows in his blood as the company was founded by his father, John Marco, a two-decade-long practicing physical therapist with a mission to get massage therapy delivered to more people through a convenient, affordable business model.
With seven locations open in Ohio, Nicholas is focused on building the brand to around 30 units in the entire state. He is an entrepreneur at heart, pushing the brand to lead the industry in all segments of the business.
Nicholas received a Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from Penn State University as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Thomas Jefferson University. He is a Critical Care Registered Nurse, still working per diem in the Intensive Care Unit.
