Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
South Beach Tanning Company, based in Orlando, Florida, is bringing their brand of sunshine to Statesboro, Georgia with the opening of the new salon located at 719 South Main Street in Statesboro. The fomer home to Tantastic is part of the South Beach Tanning Companies conversion program. The newest location is close to Georgia Southern University and a large shopping area.
South Beach Tanning Company’s newest franchisee is Brian Carter, no stranger to the franchise side of the business world. For 25 years, Mr. Carter was involved with McDonald’s; first, as a young person starting out; and later, he spent 10 years as a Director of Operations, overseeing four locations owned by his father. When the family decided to sell the locations, Brian started looking elsewhere for business opportunities and happened into the tanning industry. When he met with Brian Hibbard, Founder and President of South Beach Tanning Company, he knew he’d found the right opportunity—he was sold on the path of SBTC. According to Mr. Carter, “From their equipment, to staff, to their commitment to the overall tanning experience, we feel extremely blessed and excited for this tremendous opportunity. We were more sold on the vision of Brian Hibbard, president of SBTC, than we were anything else. This is an amazing opportunity.”
It seems the feeling is mutual. Mr. Hibbard is excited to move his tanning franchise into the Georgia market, and he thinks Mr. Carter is the best man for the job. “Obviously, Brian’s more than qualified to run a successful business—he’s proven that—and we look forward to watching his South Beach Tanning Company location thrive under his care. He knows the area, he knows the people, and he understands our vision. We’re very lucky to have him join the South Beach family,” said Hibbard.
For his part, Mr. Carter is more than ready to begin: “Tantastic is a well-run salon, and we expect the conversion process to South Beach Tanning to go smoothly. This location has a very bright future and we’re looking forward to getting started.”
