South Beach Tanning Company: Charlotte Market to Expand to Five Locations

Share Article

Charlotte Franchisee commits to developing three new South Beach Tanning Company locations in the Charlotte, NC market.

Scott Cline, South Beach Tanning Company’s very first franchisee, has committed to the development of three additional locations in the Charlotte market. His first location opened in December of 2009, and his second location, which opened just seven months ago in December, 2012, has been a huge success. Building on that momentum, Cline has hired a broker to locate three additional locations in the Charlotte market.

With the additional commitment of three new locations, Cline will own a total of five locations in the Charlotte market. South Beach Tanning franchisor, Brian Hibbard says, “Scott is very detail oriented and a great operator. Since he is a CPA and auditor by trade, his attention to detail in the numbers of the store is impeccable. Being that he is already a multi-unit operator in another industry has certainly helped his success in expanding our brand. The Charlotte market is a very saturated market with respect to the tanning industry, and Scott has performed extremely well against a host of other brands.”

Cline doesn’t plan to stop at five locations. He has plans to expand beyond the Charlotte market and has already begun expansion plans into the Alabama market with the help of his wife and her family, who are originally from that state.

South Beach Tanning Company is headquartered in Orlando, FL, and operates salons throughout Central Florida, Tampa, South Florida and Charlotte, NC. Founded by Brian Hibbard, a CPA, South Beach Tanning has been in business since 2003, and at the time of this press release, has never closed a location in its ten year history. Individuals interested in franchising with the South Beach brand, or existing salons looking to convert to the South Beach brand, should contact their Franchise Sales Director at 855-844-8377 or visit our franchise website at
