Why Hollywood Tans?

With almost 20 years in the industry and over 100 locations nationwide, Hollywood Tans continues to be one of the most recognizable names in indoor tanning. Our Unlimited Tanning Membership Programs, award-winning privately labeled stand-up UV tanning booths, industry-leading sunless equipment, and array of corporately distributed lotions and accessories keep customers coming back time and time again.

The vertical design of our equipment not only provides our customers with efficient, sanitary tanning options that set us apart from the more traditional lay down beds, but due to the smaller footprint of the equipment, Hollywood Tans has one of the lowest startup costs in the industry.

Training and Support

Hollywood Tans 04

Through ongoing training seminars and salon visits, the Hollywood Tans Corporate Office provides each salon with vital support services to improve operations and revenue streams, all while maintaining brand standards and systemwide unity.

In addition to the high level of service and support our Franchisees receive once their salons are up and running, Hollywood Tans also plays an integral role in getting each salon open on time and on budget. From assistance with real-estate, lease negotiations, design and construction, training, and salon operations, all of us here at the Corporate Office are with you every step of the way. We work with professional, competitive vendors that we hold to high standards. Once your salon is near completion, we will work with you on local store marketing and social media efforts in order to spread the word that your salon will soon be on the map!

With over 30 years experience, Hollywood Tans' exclusive stand-up UV tanning equipment supplier, Sun Capsule, has won an Industry Choice Award 12 years running for #1 stand-up manufacturer of the year. Unlike traditional laydown tanning beds, these vertical booths provide quick, sanitary tanning options for customers on the go. Rated from 2 to 4 stars, these booths provide options for all skin types and budgets while providing a different level of comfort and accessibility when compared to your typical "mom and pop" setup.

Our ongoing partnerships with industry-leading sunless equipment manufacturers provide our Franchisees with high-end sunless options. Demand for sunless tanning products and services are increasing at a rapid pace and Hollywood Tans and our vendors are constantly exploring new technologies and products.

Ideal Candidate

We're looking for franchise owners to join the Hollywood Tans Family of Salons. A person who wishes to be an owner/operator or a remote investor. While we encourage multi-salon ownership, in some of our more saturated markets, there is only a one store minimum commitment. In a new market, a minimum three store Development Agreement is required. You must have a minimum of $100,000 in liquid capital and a $300,000 net worth. There is a mandatory one week training seminar prior to store opening. Sales, marketing, and management experience a plus.
