About Tan & Deliver
What is Tan & Deliver and what services does it provide?
Tan & Deliver began supplying sunbeds for home use in 2008, becoming the sole distributor of high-end tanning equipment in the south of England for a leading manufacturer. As demand increased, the business was franchised to offer home hire sunbed rental across the whole country.
Giving customers the chance to achieve a beautiful golden tan in the comfort of their own home and at a time that suits them, Tan & Deliver provides aesthetically pleasing sunbeds with minimal running costs that are designed for convenient home use.
The stand-up beds feature the latest sunbed technology and have integrated fans and adjustable timers. Each bed only requires a metre square of floor space on a level surface with a standard double plug socket.
Sunbeds can be hired for blocks of four weeks and installation and maintenance are included in the price of the hire. Tan & Deliver has an impressive turnaround time and can usually get a sunbed to a customer’s home within 48 hours of the order being placed.
Tan & Deliver prides itself on supplying the best tanning equipment with outstanding customer service. Actively promoting responsible tanning, the business has a goal of 100 per cent customer satisfaction.
How does a Tan & Deliver franchise work?
A Tan & Deliver franchisee delivers premium home hire sunbeds to customers within their territory. The equipment is compliant with EU standards and carefully maintained by in-house sunbed engineers to ensure every sunbed delivered is in perfect working order.
Tan & Deliver franchisees follow the company’s proven business formula and benefit from ongoing marketing and personal guidance and support from the head office team to build their business. New business owners are supplied with target markets and tried and tested systems and strategies to improve productivity and increase sales.
How much does a Tan & Deliver franchise cost?
The Tan & Deliver franchise fee is £12,500 (plus VAT) and the franchise agreement is renewable after five years, subject to payments being up to date. Tan & Deliver has negotiated exclusive discounts with its sunbed suppliers, which means franchisees have recouped the franchise fee once they have purchased their first 10 sunbeds. The initial investment also includes legal fees, equipment, uniform and parts and spares.
The final cost depends upon a number of variables, including the size of the fleet, territory location and lease costs, but is typically between £30,000 and £100,000.
Tan & Deliver also charges a management fee of £15 per sunbed per month after the first six months of trading and £20 per sunbed per month from year 2 onwards.
Finding funding to cover the Tan & Deliver franchising cost
Tan & Deliver is happy to put franchisees in touch with the company’s financing partner, Kennet Leasing, to discuss funding assistance.
What do you get for your Tan & Deliver franchise fee?
A Tan & Deliver franchise package gives franchisees the right to use the brand name within an agreed territory. Also included are all the processes, systems and templates required to run the business, plus marketing, training and legal support.
The package also includes marketing leaflets, business cards, branded polo shirts and sweatshirts, stationery, vehicle branding, a tool kit with parts and initial spares and a tanning lotion product starter pack.
How much does a Tan & Deliver franchisee earn?
A Tan & Deliver franchise is an ideal business to run part-time alongside an existing job, particularly as the business is being built.
A franchisee’s earnings depend on the number of sunbeds in the fleet. By the end of year two, a franchisee with 10 sunbeds would be earning a minimum of £18,000, while a franchisee with 40 sunbeds in the fleet should be earning over £72,000, rising to £90,000 by the end of year four.
There is also the opportunity to make extra revenue from commission-based sales of tanning lotion and accessories.
What training is provided for Tan & Deliver franchisees?
New franchise owners take part in a dedicated classroom-based training programme, which is run by a member of the Tan & Deliver operations team, and spend time at head office to learn about marketing and accounting.
Hands-on training is also given to cover handling and maintenance of sunbeds and franchisees shadow existing franchisees as they carry out their home hire deliveries. Training takes place over one-two days.
What marketing support is provided for Tan & Deliver franchisees?
Tan & Deliver franchisees benefit from being part of a recognised brand and are offered comprehensive marketing support and assistance.
Each online and social media marketing campaign has been tried and tested and has been proven to reap rewards. Local marketing is also provided to boost each new business launch.
Do Tan & Deliver franchisees need industry experience?
No. Tan & Deliver is looking for franchisees who are highly motivated and enthusiastic with entrepreneurial spirit and a strong work ethic. Applicants should be happy to embrace the community ethos of the business and have the drive and dedication to succeed.
Is running a Tan & Deliver franchise a full-time job?
It doesn’t have to be, particularly when you first launch. The Tan & Deliver business model is extremely flexible, allowing the business to fit around existing home, family or work commitments. Franchisees can work anything from just a few hours a week to full-time hours, depending on their goals and circumstances.
Does a Tan & Deliver franchisee get an exclusive territory within which to trade?
Yes, each franchisee is given a large and exclusive territory, the size of which depends on the number of sunbeds in their fleet.
