Choosing Between a Static or Mobile Spray Tan Business

Don’t discount this list even if you already work from an existing salon or spa: there are many pros and cons to each type of spray tan business, even when working from an already established location. A mobile business will have less of a startup cost to contend with, but it can also be harder to generate awareness for your services, and you must be sure to have reliable transportation. A static location, like a salon, spa, or storefront, ensures the possibility of walk in appointments and adds a sense of professionalism to your business, but it’s a much more expensive type of business to maintain and profit from, and might require additional insurance or licenses to operate. For more help in deciding which business type is a good fit for you, check out what the Pros and Cons of each are below, and feel free to call Aviva if you want to discuss your options and ideas with one of our dedicated spray tan business consultants.


Mobile Static
Extremely Convenient for Clients Encourages Walk in Appointments
No Overhead Fees or Rental Costs Added Professionalism
Very Low Startup Package Costs Pairs Great with other Services
Perfect for use as a Side Business Easier to Advertise
Ideal for Big Events (Girls Night/Bridal Party) Existing Client Base (if already established)


Mobile Static
Requires Reliable Transportation Overhead Fees/Rental Costs
Weather and Traffic Dependant Requires Dedicated Space for Service
More Difficult to Advertise Often Requires More Expensive Startup Kit
One-Girl Army (Sick Time=No Clients!) Bad Location/Area=Lower Sales
