Smile Broke at record today

Last year we did 200 in one day, today we broke that record by 5, 205. Keep it simple and keep it resonable, you will pay your bills.

Re: Broke at record today

Now that's a great day! In 2006, With 10 beds, I used to do near that consistantly. Naturally, I had longer hours, and my waiting list on the computer couldn't keep track of all my people waiting; I had to use paper also. Today, it's a different story, and I have 20 beds and don't do half of what I did in 2006. I hardly ever have to use my waiting list. Oh' how things have changed.

How much money did you make? How many people you tan is a silly metric. I would rather tan 50 people and make 2k vs tanning 200 people and making 2k.

I have never understood why people care how many tanners they see in a day other than as a staffing metric.

What Kookyguy said. It is not about how many you tan. It is the revenue you bring in.

If your salon PPA is consistent, then total tans give you a quick $$ average without drilling down. We want $12 every time the doorbell rings so I will take the 200 over the 50.

For staffing I look at tans per hour more than total tans...

A 5k day is a 5k day...you can tan 50 people or 500 people.

The only record I care about is how much money we make.
