Want to open a Tanning Salon. Don't really care how small, just want to open and get started. I don't need an income yet, just want to get started.
Who (what bed distributor) can offer the most help? ie. financing, layout, installation, supplies, training

Thanks

Hit the search button next to who'online and shop in upper right hand corner and do some reading.

Yes, I have been reading here for about 1 year off and on. I feel that I know pretty much what I want, I just want to know what Dist. offer the most help. I don't really care about the beds and who makes them, I just need the help with getting established and started.

It seems to me that when you ask which bed is better, you get 1,000 different answers. So, I have determened that why worry about the bed (for a start-up) but worry more about who will give me the best help getting set-up and open? I like TanAmerica the best but I cannot see that they are that much better than say ProSun. I would even be ok with any brand, from what I read here, I then have to conclude that what really matters to a start up is HOW you get started, so....who will offer the most/best start-up help? I didn't think I was waisting time, sorry

And i'm sorry to be this way but by making a blanket statement like that you sir/ma'am are an idiot. I have been in here for a year and I have also read your sarcastic post before, but I didn't want to get ugly. I don't think you are interested in really helping, your just here to make fun of people, I don't see how you became or remain a Moderator?? I know that some Dist. will offer help with everything you need for startup and some will offer only partial, I would like to get some asnwers form those who have used the people to start their own Salons. I have spoken to George at ProSun and need more help or advice, not from CocoNUT please!

If you really had been in here for a year, you would know that the answers to your questions are as diverse as the people in here...You make it sound like the product (beds)is not important and that comes off cavalier & condescending to those of us who have spent enormous amounts of time researching and working hard to build the relationships with our people (distributors) that you think we should just hand to you on a platter.
It is clear that the salons (and owners) that are sucessfull have taken the time to learn what works and what doesn't...I feel no need to impart any information that I have spent a lot of time & money to learn but I am willing to share with some of those I have met here that I know will reciprocate and that I have RESPECT for...Coconut is one of these.
