Orlando, Floirda (PRWEB) January 21, 2015 - South Beach Tanning Company, Florida's largest tanning salon chain, has purchased the popular Orlando based Exclusive Tan salon and provided the salon's existing members with membership privileges at the other 12 Orlando area South Beach Tanning Company locations. This most recent purchase continues South Beach's aggressive push to consolidate the tanning industry around just a few top tier brands.
"These mergers and conversions benefit everyone involved," stated Brian Hibbard, Founder and President of South Beach Tanning. "In this instance, the merger of the salon into ours just made sense. The salon served the Orlando Community for nearly 13 years." Clients will get access to the tanning industries most state-of-the-art equipment and access to all South Beach locations throughout the country.
South Beach Tanning Company has continued to expand Florida operations and franchise locations throughout the country and has aggressive growth plans for 2015.

There are currently 7 stores planned for the first quarter of 2015. "Our growth over the past 3 years has been tremendous," said Brian Hibbard, Founder and President of the South Beach Tanning Company. "The South Beach Tanning Company Conversion Program has provided a great opportunity for smaller salons to be part of our system and benefit from our marketing and branding programs."
Director of Franchise Sales, John Armatas said, "The South Beach Franchise system provides huge benefits to independent salon owners, that will now have time to work on the business, rather then worrying about what marketing promotion to run next week."
