You may soon be able to have a relaxing day at Whole Foods. Not the Whole Foods grocery store where the prices can sometimes make you feel like you’re in cardiac arrest, but a Whole Foods upscale health resort where you can go for spa treatments and receive a healthy lifestyle education.
Whole Foods is looking to create its first resort in Austin, Texas, where the company’s headquarters is located. Whole Foods co-founder John Mackey talked exclusively about the resort to USA Today
and said the project is about three years away.
The company already has an in-house healthy lifestyle education program that Mackey says has improved the lives of hundreds of the Whole Foods’ employees. The health resort would start from the in-house program and would open up to anyone — or anyone who can afford a resort with Whole Foods in its name.
If you’re a Whole Foods shopper, will you be keeping an eye out for the opening of the Whole Foods resort to get in on their healthy lifestyle education?
