As consumers desire to live longer, healthier lives continues to grow, so does the need for life’s little luxury’s. Take for example the trend for ‘fast and slow’. While some consumers will seek a total immersion experience busy professionals and overworked soccer moms, will give rise to express services. How might you bring a little luxury to express services and capitalize on this trend?
