Statesboro, GA (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
South Beach Tanning Company, based in Orlando, Florida, is bringing their brand of sunshine to Statesboro, Georgia on April 1, 2014. This newest location is part of their salon conversion program and will be located at 719 South Main Street in Statesboro, currently home to Tantastic, and close to Georgia Southern University and a large shopping area.
South Beach Tanning Company’s newest franchisees are Brian Carter and his sister, Amanda Lee, both no strangers 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 for four family owned locations. 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 Brian and Amanda are the best people for the job. “We are extremely excited and honored to have Brian and Amanda joining the South Beach brand. As former owners of multiple top performing McDonald’s restaurant locations, both Brian and Amanda bring a tremendous amount of operational business experience with them. We could not have asked for a better fit for our brand, not only in the experience level they bring, but their work ethic and sense of values is just a perfect match for us. Our entire team is really looking forward to working with them as we expand the brand into Georgia,” 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.”
