Local business Massage Addict
(1472 Martello Street, 407-4040, and three other locations in Halifax and Dartmouth) will appear on Dragon’s Den
, airing Wednesday at 8pm on CBC Television.
Massage Addict is a membership-based massage therapy company started in 2008 by Lori MacKenzie
. She and Massage Addict COO, Chris Harker
, will pitch their concept to the five business experts (the "dragons") in an effort to gain support for their business model.
“Not many businesses can thrive and expand during recessionary times,” said Harker in a press release. “We’ve set out to build something truly unique in Canadian Health Care and we need to convince the dragons this business is poised for success across Canada.”
