We are SHARING THE LOVE!
As ōtium steadily approaches our third year, we are so proud and elated to announce a special joy we have been keeping close to our heart. Today marks the announcement of ōtium’s very first franchise! You heard it here first, ōtium is spreading its roots to sunny Savannah, Georgia! Independently owned and operated, ōtium Savannah will open Fall 2017 and will be led by an absolute dream team. Owner Allison Falkenberry brings unparalleled experience to ōtium.
Before being recruited to be the Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at Savannah College of Art and Design, Ms. Falkenberry resided in Manhattan for 20 years, where she used her position as Vice President of brand and digital communications with Rodale Wellness to drive development of magazine, book, film and television in the areas of entertainment, sports, health, beauty, eco, retail and fashion. Ms. Falkenberry now splits her time between Savannah, Georgia and Rosemary Beach, Florida.
After nearly a full year of reading, writing, listening and learning . . . we are over the moon to expand the ōtium family. All of this progress and hard work has us taking our gaze over the shoulder, reminiscing of how it all began. In September of 2015, ōtium 30a first opened it's doors and since that day we have let our conscience and intuition lead the team and brand. This company was founded with the mission to create an environment focused on inspiring and enabling individuals to live their best lives. We view the servies that we provide as a necessity. As elemental as water, as vital as proper nutrition and clean living, physical activity feeds the mind and nourishes the soul. Over the last year and through remarkable leadership, patience and steadfast commitment . . . our founders prepared the company to operate under a franchise system, believing in the commitment to support and honor the good. All ōtium franchises will receive unwaivering support through the process of owning and operating an ōtium studio, through the use of an extensive operations manual as well as indivualized buying support from our incredible team. Each ōtium studio will feature the same carefully curated retail lines that you are used to seeing at our 30A location, with a continued emphasis on sustainability and minimalism.
A special thank you to The Internicola Law Firm for believing in our brand and for giving premier counsel and support. Managing partner and founder, Charles Internicola, is continually recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine for his excellence in business and franchise law . . . and we understand why.

A special thank you to our people. You are the heroes in this story. Your contagious energy is what drives the passion that is needed to create additional ōtium communities devoted to fostering the message of hope, healing and overall happiness. We are so excited to share the love! xx - The ō team
