The substantial injection of capital will create a strategic growth partnership between VIO Med Spa and Tucker’s Farm in order to drive nationwide expansion, invest in human infrastructure, expand training and education, explore emerging operational and technology platforms, and further the development of additional corporate-owned locations.
“As our leadership team explored the many growth partners interested in VIO, we felt Tucker’s Farm was best aligned with our core values and the mission of becoming the nation’s leading aesthetic brand,” said VIO CEO Ryan Rose. “They share our ideals of being a franchisee-first organization and decision-making based on long-term financial results.”
Founded by Joe and Nick Stanoszek, VIO Med Spa currently has 13 locations open across six states with 40 new locations scheduled to open by the end of 2023.
“VIO has its eyes set on developing more company-owned stores and staying ahead of the competition, and this infusion of capital is instrumental to our future plans,” Joe Stanoszek said.
With the addition of Tucker Farm’s equity investment, Kyle Tucker, who is the company’s head of capital allocation, will join the VIO Board of Directors. His strategic involvement will enhance executive leadership, with day-to-day operations remaining the same.
“After meeting with Ryan Rao, VIO Med Spa’s Chief Development Officer, at an industry conference and studying all the leading brands in the aesthetics industry, I knew VIO was best-in-class and positioned to be special,” Tucker said. “We’re extremely excited to partner with the team at VIO Med Spa. They are uniquely positioned to deliver excellent patient outcomes across the country and we’re thrilled they chose Tucker’s Farm as their partners for their next chapter of growth.”
Tucker’s Farm takes a highly-flexible approach, investing across industries, geographies and the capital structure. The corporation’s affiliate franchisor-franchisee investments include the leading chicken quick-service restaurant brand in the Midwest and one of the largest European Wax Center franchisees with locations across the country.
VIO Med Spa is among the industry leaders in wellness and aesthetics, offering the newest cutting-edge technologies and therapies available. Every location stresses a best-in-class experience and adheres to the company motto: delivering safe, easy, and life-changing results.
