Garland, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2008
Planet Tan, home of Dallas/Fort Worth's premier tanning super centers, and the most respected brand in the industry, announced today that it will be expanding operations with six new locations in North Texas. The new salons are planned for McKinney, Murphy, Little Elm, West Plano and one site yet to be determined.
Founder and CEO, Tony Hartl, is also considering franchise locations outside of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. "With strong and steady growth in North Texas, I am looking to build on our success in other markets," said Hartl. Austin is just one of the markets that Hartl is considering for his first franchise endeavor.
Planet Tan currently owns and operates fourteen locations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Their formula for success has been building spacious retail centers (up to 3,500 sq. ft.), and hiring experienced general managers to operate their salons seven-days-a-week.
