CORAL GABLES, Fla. and TREVOSE, Pa., Nov. 15, 2016 — Steiner Education Group, Inc. (SEG), a leading provider of massage and skin care education with 30 campuses across the country, and Hand and Stone Franchise Corp. (Hand & Stone), a fast-growing spa franchise company with 300 locations nationwide, have announced an agreement to provide the opportunity for SEG students at participating SEG campuses to interview for a job with Hand & Stone franchises in their areas.
“We are thrilled to be working with the SEG to develop this industry-leading program that will help place their highly qualified graduates into Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spas. As a fast-growing national concept, we have openings throughout the country that SEG can help us fill.
