People are Vain - Opening Your Own Tanning Salon Business

by: Howard I Schwartz

The use of tanning beds came to the United Stated from Europe in 1979. The rise in popularity was swift and over the years tanning bed bulbs have become brighter and faster with even better tanning results. The tanning industry has been growing since it was introduced, and is expected to keep on growing. This is largely because people in general are concerned with beauty and body image and strive for the "perfect" look.

People are keen to opt for tanning because it claims to have such significant benefits over tanning in the sun. The tanning industry claims that customers are 81% less likely to burn when they are outside if they use a tanning bed on a regular basis.

If you decide to open a tanning salon ( http://www.hjventures.com/tanning-salon-business-plan.html ) you will need to consider location first and foremost. The most important question is what other business are in the immediate area? Are there grocery stores, theaters, a college or university, apartments, shopping facilities and other attractions? These types of businesses will draw traffic into your establishment. Always consider more than one location and look for similar business in the area.

Once you have decided on a location it is time to consider your floor plan and room layout. Tanning system suppliers will be able to assist you in creating a design that takes the tanning equipment into account. Some of the decorating ides that many salons use are: dropped ceilings, light sconces in each tanning room, built in accessory tables, runner lights, cove lighting and pocket doors.

The most important part of any tanning salon is your equipment. Make sure you partner with a reputable manufacturer, one that offers excellent equipment, ongoing business, marketing and services support and who is really interested in seeing your business grow.
