Tanning Salon Business Plan
Owning your own tanning salon is a huge responsibility. It takes dedication, hard work and operating capital. But before you even think about opening a new tanning salon you need a solid business plan. Our Tanning Salon Consultants are equipped with tools to help you formulate a successful plan. From writing your mission statement to developing a marketing strategy, we can walk you through every step of the business plan to ensure your greatest possible chance of success in the tanning industry.
Tanning Salon Break-even Analysis
The question on every tanning salon owners’ mind should be, “how long will it take to start making money?” After you make a substantial investment opening a tanning salon, what do you need to charge to be profitable? Ask your Tanning Salon Consultant and find out. We can help design a plan for per-session costs, supplemental income, overhead and advertising to ultimately analyze when you can expect the money to start rolling in.
Once you determine a location and number of tanning beds, our in-house Design Team will draft a tanning salon layout to fit your needs. And the service doesn’t stop there… When construction actually starts, we can consult with your contractors to be sure your build-out will happen smoothly.
