Open a Tanning Salon

Cal Tan offers an alternative solution to franchising for start-up tanning salons.

Cal Tan owns & operates several of our own tanning salons. What does this mean? You do not have to re-invent the wheel! Take our 30 years of knowledge and rise above your competition from the day you open your doors.

Entrepreneurs, would you like to keep the hard-earned profits that your business generates? Then look no further. Why pay a franchise fee and be tied into paying royalties forever? Cal Tan teaches you everything you need to know about running a successful business and works with the budget your business plan allows.


Cal Tan provides these free services to start-up tanning salons:

  • Assistance in preparing your business plan
  • Location study
  • Assistance with lease negotiation
  • Assistance with tanning equipment selection
  • Floor plan design
  • Sales training
  • Salon marketing & advertising
  • Lotion programs

The negative side of franchising:

  • A single salon franchise fee starts at $40k & up + the cost to open the franchise salon is $247,900 – $652,500.
  • Salon owner is locked into tanning package prices, product brands, & product pricing.
  • Locked into specific marketing & advertising plans
  • Cannot design own signage & business name

As a non-franchise, independent business owner, you have the liberty to customize your business to your demographic and customers’ needs! The sky is the limit when you are the boss.
