transformative effect from which the name 18|8 comes – transforming raw steel,
by adding 18% chromium and 8% nickel to make a better looking and better
performing end product known to us as stainless steel.

that our clients love and come to expect. Add to that a light massage, hot
towel treatment, and beer on the house, while being surrounded by lakeside
views as well as shopping and fine-dining delights. Every man deserves to look
and feel like a million bucks,” said John-Michael Stern, Franchise Owner of
