Partnership Success First: Doing Tanning Differently, at Sun Tan City

Love tanning? Like the idea of owning your own business? Sun Tan City could be a great fit for your future. Learn more about our unique approach to franchising, today.

Thanks so much for your interest in Sun Tan City. We’d love to have you join us.

Over the past 20 years, Sun Tan City has grown from a couple of tanning beds in the back of a video store to one of the nation’s premier tanning salon brands with more than 250 salons across the United States.

The reason for this rapid but steady growth is simple—at Sun Tan City, the success of our franchisees is our top priority. That’s why in addition to the equity that comes from a highly recognizable and marketable brand, we provide our franchisees with the best systems and support in the tanning industry.

We provide our franchisees with a simple, easy-to-follow concept—offer clients the best tanning equipment available in an impeccably clean, relaxing environment, staffed with well-trained, knowledgeable Tanning Consultants at an amazing price. In other words, we do tanning differently. And this difference is what puts us ahead of the competition. Our salons go above and beyond the traditional by providing clients with a tanning “experience.”

We also make converting an existing tanning salon to the Sun Tan City brand simple and easy. There’s no upfront franchise fee and a reduced royalty structure to help cover the costs of exterior signage, interior branding materials and other conversion-related expenses.
We’d love to share our success with you. If you’re interested in joining the Sun Tan City family, please review the information on this site. If, after doing so, you believe becoming a Sun Tan City franchisee is the right opportunity for you, we’ll work hard to make it happen for qualified applicants.

Thanks again,

Rick Kueber
Co-Founder and CEO
