Why Start A Canadian Tanning Salon?

The tanning industry has steadily increased during turbulent economic times.  Thirty million North Americans have visited a tanning salon in the last 10 years.  The tanning industry has grown to a $7 billion dollar industry from its humble beginnings of $900 million annual sales in 1991. There is no indication that the tanning salon industry is slowing down.  Salons are opening all over the world and the rate of growth is outstanding.

Tanning salon investment has reliable profits because:

  • Indoor tanning is a responsible way for people to tan without burning.
  • Successful tanning salon managers use available tools to train their employees to identify skin types, know how each skin type reacts to the Ultraviolet light.
  • Sunburn prevention outdoors is much harder to control than indoors due to uncontrollable natural variables.

A successful tanning salon owner needs only to provide:

  • the machines
  • location
  • exceptional cleanliness
  • a highly trained staff focused on customer service

These are the necessary ingredients for establishing and maintaining a profitable tanning salon that people will feel comfortable coming back to over and over again for a relaxing, personal experience.
