February 03, 2015 // Franchising.com // Tampa, FL - South Beach Tanning Company multi-unit franchise owners, Glen & Jill Harrod have opened a third location in the Tampa Bay area in just 7 months. The parent company and franchise system now has 6 locations in the Tampa Bay area. The newest salon is located at 5242 4th Street North in St. Petersburg.
South Beach Tanning Company continues rapid growth and now has over 40 salons located primarily in the north and southeastern U.S. Brian Hibbard, Founder and President of the South Beach Tanning Company attributes much of the growth to franchisees like the Harrods. "Glen & Jill are terrific franchisees, they understand the business and are all about customer satisfaction, "said Hibbard. "Their willingness to expand the brand in the Pinellas County is really exciting for us as the franchisor." The Harrods currently have a salon in New Tampa and Brandon and are hoping to open two additional salons in the next 24 months in the bay area.
"The positive reception that we have received from our clients in the first few weeks that we have been opened is very exciting." Said Jill Harrod. According to Glen Harrod, "Adding the South Beach Tanning Company location in Brandon was a natural fit for Jill and myself, but we are really excited about St. Petersburg. The area really needed this type of salon. Our tanning clients experience firsthand how different our state-of-the-art salon is." The new 4th Street location is anchored by many successful chains that meet the growing needs of the adjacent communities and neighborhoods and is located in Mainstream Station just North of downtown along the 4th Street North business corridor.
