The first CLUBTAN shop

The first CLUBTAN shop opened its doors in 2001. Only 6 years later, the launch of the 100th center marked an important milestone. CLUBTAN today is one of the fastest growing franchise chains with proven economic success.


Are you passionate about creating your own successful business? Do you know the value of a thorough and successful concept based on a strong brand, quality, knowledge and professionalism? Do you dream of financial success, backed up by know-how? Would you like to be a partner in one of the fastest growing franchise chains?


Our business model is based on the ‘personnel-free tanning salon’ concept. The salons are owned and operated by an individual owner, but serviced centrally by the franchisor. Your efforts at CLUBTAN® can easily  be combined with other occupations, so keeping your main job will not a problem.


Within CLUBTAN chain, each studio is owned by an independent person – a franchisee, who is accountable to the central administration and adheres to the CLUBTAN quality standard.
This ownership structure ensures that each studio is under close supervision by the franchisee and also the CLUBTAN administration, and it guarantees regular lamp replacements, service and maintenance of tanning beds and equipment, as well as daily quality checks.

Membership System

At CLUBTAN we have our own unique proprietary membership system, which is controlled by a membership kiosk (booking machine) where you both book and pay for tanning sessions.

Skin type scanner

Every time you book an hour of tanning you get an automatic skin type scan and receive guidance on the appropriate treatment time. In this way we help tanning guests get an effective and gentle treatment, based on their particular skin type.

PreSun & AfterSun lotion – directly at hand

We have our own patented cream dispenser in cabins. Tan accelerating lotion is offered upon booking a tanning session.

Clients receive tan accelerating lotion inside a tanning cabin, which helps them to avoid the hassle of having to remember to bring a tube from home. Sun accelerating lotion ensures that clients get more color and preserves it longer.

Free tan on subscription

For  CLUBTAN members it is possible to sign up fo an “Unlimited Tanning” subscription with no binding agreement.  We put an end to cash or tanning cards, since all customers need to do is to sign up by setting up a user profile. With the easy fingerprint based login, customers can use our tanning beds as much as they want and whenever they want (limited to certain quotas due to safety restrictions). We automatically withdraw the payment by direct debit.

VISA and change money

CLUBTAN also accepts all credit cards and cash payments. If you decide to pay with cash and overpay, you won’t get your change back. However, the change will automatically be transferred to your profile, so it can be used during the next visit.

Take an “air shower”

At CLUBTAN we put an end to overheating after a TANNING SESSION! We have invented the ‘Air Shower’, which is a patented CLUBTAN technology.

Air Shower ‘washes’ you with a cool air, blowing out of the ceiling, which switches on automatically as soon as a tanning session is over. Simply stand at the designated place on the floor and enjoy “a cool shower”.

Sun for your skin

CLUBTAN’s tanning beds are designed for the Caucasian skin type, therefore CLUBTAN allows you to achieve a better tanning result.

There is a big difference between skin types in the world, and it is important that you use tanning beds, which are designed for your specific skin type. It is definitely more expensive to develop tailored tanning beds, but at CLUBTAN we think it pays off, because we aim to have happy and satisfied customers.

Unique equipment

At CLUBTAN we have developed all the tanning equipment ourselves, which it is not to be found elsewhere. All equipment and fixtures were developed with the vision and  objective to make sure that ‘nothing is random and only perfection is good enough!’. We are confident that our customers will feel the difference when using CLUBTAN Sun & Wellness centers.

Visibility is the key

Nothing is left to chance at CLUBTAN. It is important to be visible, to be seen and heard. But it is also important that CLUBTAN marketing effort works. Therefore, we use market analysis from Megafon, which provides insight into our clients’ expectations, desires and satisfaction.

We offer a range of marketing material: advertising in local newspapers, eye-catching posters, window stickers and banners to light up and decorate your facade, clothing, flyers and a lot more. All of this you can find and directly order on the chain’s intranet, which all franchise partners have direct access to.
