Award One of Six Presented by Cedar Hill Chamber at Annual Dinner
Tina and Derek Michels realized a dream when they opened Massage Envy SPA Cedar Hill in August 2013. And after being open less than six months, Massage Envy Spa Cedar Hill has been named the 2013 Business of the Year by the Cedar Hill Chamber – one of six awards presented at the Chamber’s awards dinner and annual meeting on January 23.
“We’re really excited,” says Tina. “The Chamber told us we were nominated for the Fast Start Award, so we were shocked to win Business of the Year.”
Tina joined the Cedar Hill Chamber in February 2013 and has been active in numerous community events from the beginning. The Cedar Hill Chamber is part of the Best Southwest Partnership – made up of the cities of Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, Lancaster and associate cities Ferris, Glenn Heights, Hutchins, Midlothian, Ovilla, Red Oak and Wilmer – which offers many connections and opportunities for businesses.
“The Best Southwest is unique. They embraced us with open arms. The City of Cedar Hill has been very welcoming, and the Chamber has helped us reach a lot of families we otherwise wouldn’t have,” Tina adds. “The Spa is doing much better than we expected for the time we’ve been open. Many of our members are from local businesses, which is the clientele we love to service.”
Prior to opening Massage Envy SPA Cedar Hill, massage and wellness had already been part of Tina’s life for 10 years as she worked as a Lead Massage Therapist, Spa Director and Massage Therapy Program Director. She serves on the Arthritis Foundation committee representing Massage Envy Spas, a national sponsor of the Arthritis Foundation. Tina loved the business model and husband Derek convinced her it was time to take the next step.
Freddy O’Pry, in charge of Franchise Development for Massage Envy Spas DFW, stated, “This is excellent – great job! Tina and Derek have been amazing with the Cedar Hill spa, and we aren’t surprised that they won this award. Working within your community, being visible, is how you grow your business.”
