Indulge Salon and Day Spa, located one mile from Adamson Square on Rome Street, was recently sold to Michelle and Randy Hanscom of Marietta. The business has been owned by Stacy McLarty since 2004.“We [Michelle and Randy Hanscom] really fell in love with the brand Stacy created,” said Michelle Hanscom. “Indulge’s mission statement really stood out to us.
It states that we will always strive to be the best of the best salon and day spa in west Georgia. We define the best by providing superior service, exceptional quality, and outstanding products with a smile.” McLarty started Indulge Day Spa on May 1, 2004, when she was 21 years old, at a location on Trojan Drive. Indulge began as a spa offering massages, facials, manicures and pedicure and make-up services. After three years, McLarty expanded Indulge into a salon and day spa at its current location on Rome Street.
Michelle is a business veteran when it comes to the aesthesis industry as well as a licensed esthetician. Her husband Randy has been a business owner in the flooring industry since graduating from college. The couple plan to bring many different trends to the West Georgia area.
“I have a lot of plans and dreams about what I want to see offered,” said Hanscom. “The first thing I want to do is come in the door, meet clients, and get to know the lifestyle at Indulge.” McLarty said it was a tough decision to sell a business she started from scratch and built for nearly two decades. Since moving to Saint Simons Island a couple of years ago, McLarty said she found it difficult to allow Indulge to grow.
“I feel like I was doing an injustice to keep it,” said McLarty. “But after seeking someone who is super inspired and ready to give it the same energy it deserves, it can now grow and further the brand I created.” Although the COVID-19 pandemic postponed the sale for months, the transaction was recently completed, and the Hanscoms are now the active owners of Indulge Salon and Day Spa.
“We plan to continue providing superior service and exceptional quality like in our mission statement,” said Hanscom. “I am really excited to learn more about Carrollton and our local clients here. We plan on relocating to the area soon and are very excited about our future”
Indulge spa director Becky Preston is looking forward to continuing Indulge’s image with the Hanscoms. “I’ve witnessed a lot of exciting changes at Indulge over the years. This is by far the biggest and most exciting,” said Preston “I can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for our Indulge family.”
