LA TAN???? does anyone own one???
I'm currently working on opening up small salon. It's going to have 5 beds, 1 stand up and a Mystic. I stopped by a salon called LA TAN. It has about 30 beds/stand ups and a Mystic...it's huge! Has anyone heard of this place? It's a franchise. There are about 95 across the US. Currenly their mostly in the Midwest. I talked to the owner of one today and he suggested I open one up. There aren't any in my area. He said that down the road they will be opening several up in my area. Ok, great...the big boys are coming to town to squash me and the other small salons... there goes all my hard work and money...I heard franchises were not so good to be involved with...Is LA TAN that great and will I survive or should I say ok and join them??? Please help me....Thank so much

I have heard of them but I havent heard great things from a customer stand point, which shows me even though they may be HUGE, they may also miss the personal touch that your salon will have, along with the originality.
