The Salt Suite

Ryan Dodson

Ryan Dodson, Certified Franchise Executive, CPA



Ryan is not the typical CPA. Some say that unlike most CPAs, Ryan actually has a personality. Why is he different? Maybe it is his entrepreneurial passion for franchising that honed his operations and people skills. Others find an oxymoron between the analytical side of a CPA and an executive who espouses the many benefits of a salt therapy franchise. Meet Ryan and decide for yourself; is he the expected CPA?

Ryan taps his 18 years of franchising experience and eight years working as a CPA to help franchisees meet their goals. In April 2019, Ryan left his position as Chief Strategy Officer at Liberty Tax, an international franchise with 3,000 plus offices. Before becoming CSO, Ryan was a Regional Director with a team that supported over 500 franchisees, 34 area developers and well over 1,000 stores. Ryan has owned franchises across several brands and grew his Area Development unit count from 4 to 90 stores in eight years.

Two things get Ryan very excited:

  1. bringing salt room therapy franchise to more people
  2. helping franchisees realize their dreams and goals

In November 2019, Ryan and his business partner purchased The Salt Suite® from its founders. The Salt Suite®, a salt room therapy franchise, offers dry salt therapy.

Ryan learned that understanding franchisees’ personal life goals relates to their business goals. He helps franchisees turn those goals and dreams into actionable plans. Come see how owning a salt spa franchise such as The Salt Suite® can help you reach your goals and dreams.
