That perfect tan, or just the appearance of the perfect tan, is something that more and more consumers seek every day. Now that the economy is recovering, service industries are reaping the benefits. Owning a tanning franchise has the potential to be more lucrative now than it ever has in the past.
When you look for franchise business opportunities in the tanning industry, it is important to realize that you have a lot of different options. Tanning encompasses tanning beds, of course, but there are also opportunities with spray- on tans, sunless tanning and tan maintenance. You can choose to specialize in all of these different options or just focus on one.
Tanning has become so popular that recent estimates put the number of consumers engaging in any form of tanning at well over 30 million. Those consumers contributed to revenue of over $5 billion for the entire tanning industry. As consumers have more and more freedom to spend their hard earned money on themselves, they can do that at your business. When you buy into that industry, you have the chance to tap into that revenue stream for yourself.
