Experience key to spa success
KIM and Jemma Stergiou used positive lessons they learned from three Keturah Day Spas when they launched the fourth in Nedlands last October, just two months out from the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
“Nedlands is a combination of the other three,” Mr Stergiou said. “We knew what worked.” The couple, who have been married for 18 years, got into the industry by default after buying commercial land that included a day spa. Mr Stergiou worked in beer and wine sales before joining the business with his wife, who has a background in corporate administration, seven years ago.
Highgate was their first venture, followed by Carine, Fremantle and Nedlands but there could be a fifth in the pipeline.
Keturah has also expanded to include The Fixx Espresso Bar at the Fremantle out- let that will also be added to Highgate in April. Last year the group secured the Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA) Best Day Spa in Australia trophy for the second year that led to an inclusion on the ABIA Honour Roll.
