Owners Jeff and Stacey Lauseng become Sun Tan City franchisees; same ownership, new options for customers
Shreveport, LA – (February 17, 2014] – Today’s Tanning, a chain of six local tanning salons owned by Jeff and Stacey Lauseng, converted its locations to Sun Tan City on January 27th, 2014 as part of a new franchisee agreement. The couple, which founded the business in 1996, bought the exclusive Sun Tan City franchise rights for Bossier, Caddo, Lincoln and Quachita Parishes of Louisiana in November, 2013.
Today’s Tanning will remain under the same ownership and management but customers will notice improvements and changes in the store appearance, promotions and additional tanning packages. The switch allows customers the option of using their packages at any of the more than 275 Sun Tan City locations across 21 states nationwide. The salons will also offer more products, improved equipment and a stronger customer service network.
“For more than 18 years we’ve been committed to growing our business locally and meeting the needs of our customers. As we join the Sun Tan City brand, that commitment not only continues, but grows,” said Jeff Lauseng, owner and franchisee. “For our customers, the only differences they’ll see are more options and improvements, everything else – the locations, employees and owners – are all the same. Becoming a Sun Tan City franchisee allows us to offer better products, equipment and pricing to customers and the opportunity to continue expanding throughout the area.”
Current Today’s Tanning customers will not see a change in their current pricing plans. The Lausengs promise current customers they can “stay in their current plans at the current price as long as you remain a customer.” All customers were converted over to Sun Tan City clients on January 27; customers can use their plans at any Sun Tan City salon location nationwide.
“It’s a very exciting time for us at Sun Tan City as we move into Louisiana with Jeff and Stacey. We are thrilled to have them as some of our newest franchisees. I look forward to seeing the continued growth of their business in Louisiana,” said Rick Kueber, Sun Tan City CEO/Co-Founder.
Sun Tan City has expanded its presence into 21 states with more than 275 locations nationwide. The company began franchising in 2007 after growing to more than 40 corporate locations from its inception in 1999.
