Costs for cryosauna business
One-time costs in cryosauna business:
- Cryotherapy equipment. Obviously, the most important thing. If you are going to become a serious player in this market, it is better to opt for a trusted cryosauna manufacturer and buy equipment covered by warranty, with all necessary certificates. Reliability and safety should be your number one priority. As for the price tag on cryotherapy machines, you might look into a cryosauna rental or lease if you are not willing to spend money on buying a cryotherapy machine. In addition, you can follow our news not to miss special offers;
- Proper ventilation. Your cryotherapy center should be well-ventilated to provide a safe environment for you and your customers. Do not save money on this and make sure to install powerful bathroom exhaust fan to vent to the outside;
- Furniture. Purchase office and changing room furniture – chairs, lockers, a sofa, a reception desk.
- Operator’s training. Well-trained personnel will ensure customer satisfaction, as well as the smooth operation of the equipment. Remember that Cryomed offers thorough training for our partners and distributors.
Recurring payments in the cryotherapy business:
- Monthly rental costs for the premises. The area of your center should be at least 6m² in case of a Cryomed Pro cryotherapy machine. But, for example, cryosauna Cryomed One requires only 1 m², so you can go for the most suitable option;
- Liquid nitrogen cost. If you decide on a valve type cryosauna operated from pressurized tanks, add monthly tank rental payments to your nitrogen provider here as well. If you choose a Dewar type cryosauna operated from 40-liter unpressurized tanks, you only pay for liquid nitrogen. More information on the difference between the two types can be found here.
- Staff salary.
- Utility costs.
- Promotional campaign. If you need our support for your marketing campaign, contact us for promo materials and promotional kit.
In some countries, licenses or permits might be needed to operate cryotherapy centers. Consider looking into this issue well in advance to run your new business smoothly. Anyway, Cryomed has extensive experience in opening cryotherapy centers all over the world and we would be happy to give you advice.
How to calculate the profitability of your cryotherapy business?
An average session time is 3 minutes.
- If you have at least 10 cryotherapy sessions per day, in one month (including weekends) you can have as many as 300.
- An average price of one session is about $35.
- So with this workload, your center will be busy with cryotherapy sessions for some hours and a half daily, and your monthly income will be $10,500.
- Deduct your one-time costs and monthly expenses, and you will get your net profit.
Of course, these calculations are very approximate, but they will give you an idea of what to expect from your business and how long it will take to recover your investment.
