Each tanning bed is controlled by a unique patented vending
timer system. The vending timer can only be activated via specially
encoded magnetic cards. The process is very simple:
Card Through Vending Timer
Money Directly Into Vending Timer
Desired Tanning Time
Of Magnetic Cards: Each customer receives their own personal
tanning card. The tanning card can only be used once every
24 hours. The VTT Timer System's onboard computer reads the
card when swiped and prohibits additional usage for a complete
24 hour cycle.
Split: Depends on what you negotiate.
A: Apartment Communities: Zero split. Apartment community
will make money by selling the tanning cards for $10 each.
They reimburse you $2 for every card sold. You also give
them two free tans per day for the leasing staff. This equals
$180 monthly in free tanning. Remember, they pay tens of
thousands for resident amenities like weight equipment,
tennis courts, racquetball, swimming pools, etc. You are
providing them a great marketing amenity at zero cost to
them. The residents pay $3.00 for each tanning session.
B: Fitness Facility: 75% to you - 25% to club. Club
makes money by selling the cards for $10 each. They reimburse
you $2 for every card sold. You can also sell lotions to
clubs for salon cost plus %25. Club will markup to normal
salon retail. Fee for each tanning session is $4.00.
