Active Monthly Clients

I am currently working on opening a 24 hour tanning salon in Atlanta, Georgia. I was just wondering how many active clients you average a month.

There is only one other tanning salon in the area and I've only heard negative things about it. Our location is amazing and the area itself see's more than 17 million tourists a year. I know that isn't our client base, but it will be directly across the street from the main entrance of the biggest mall in Atlanta. There are approximatly 2,000 women from the ages of 17-44 in 5 miles.
How many of those women do you THINK might come tan.

Thank you for your help!

10% will tan if you're lucky between ALL salons.

Re: Active Monthly Clients

10% used to be the number, sure it's less now. If I were 24HourTan, I'd forget about that salon.

Re: Active Monthly Clients

How many of the 2000 that will tan. My estimate would be 140-200. 70% of those will only tan 3 months of the year.

Re: Active Monthly Clients

You asked the same question in another post. Got the same answers.

The reality is, it won't work. You need a business plan..
