ABOUT US

OUR STORY

In 2008, Joe Beaudry was looking for ways to help him gain a competitive edge in his corporate career. Stress-relief, focus and improved memory were just a few of the items on his list. And so with a little research, he found an online community of passionate “floaters”; advocates of the benefits of floating, and how these benefits helped them with the careers and their personal lives.

Through an online forum, Joe was able to try a floating tank in the basement of an avid users home. An hour later, he knew he had stumbled upon something very special, that would not only help him personally, but something, if branded and presented to the public correctly, could start to help countless professionals in markets all across the country.

“The Urban Float team delivers on excellent management, advertising and innovation in this budding industry. I am proud to be a part of such a well thought out franchise.”

– Marilyn Olmsted
FRANCHISE OWNER VANCOUVER, WA

DREAM TEAM FORMATION

Joe firmly believed that Urban Float would one day become a staple name across the country. He knew that in order for this to happen, he would need help from a group of individuals who were deeply experienced in retail, and in the wellness industries. And so came Scott Swerland and his team. Together, Joe, Scott and the team bring 75 years of retail experience to Urban Float. Scott knows how to find affordable locations that generate serious revenue. He is passionate about brand-building and alongside Joe and the rest of the team, is determined to ensure that every major market across the country has one or more successful Urban Floats in operation.

“…Everything you need is right there – towels, shampoo, conditioner etc. And after the float there is an option to hang out in their lounge upstairs with complimentary tea and water etc. I really liked the experience and also especially liked the fact that nothing felt rushed.”
