The Tropic Tan Experience
- Innovation + Technology + Experience
Since 1991, Tropic Tan has established itself in the Central Texas area as being one of the premier tanning center companies. Tropic Tan combined innovative new customer-oriented business practices, cutting-edge tanning technology, and professional experience to provide customers with the ultimate in indoor tanning satisfaction.
Tropic Tan was founded in 1991 in Austin, Texas. It currently is the longest standing continuous-owner chain in the Austin area. The chain expanded over the years to five locations but in recent years elected to concentrate all of its efforts to its largest flagship location in Lakeway. The luxury Lakeway location is located at the entrance of the Lakeway resort, conveniently located for clients in that booming Lake Travis area.
All told, Tropic Tan has provided over 1 million tanning sessions to customers.
Take a look at some of our accomplishments:
- Opened the first fully computerized tanning center in Austin in 1991, precisely controlling customer tanning session exposure times
- First tanning center in area to offer high-performance tanning lamps and a variety of tanning beds so that customers could choose what works best for the results they desire and for their skin type.
- Introduced innovative new value-packed "no-commitment" tanning memberships with convenience of electronic funds transfers. The first in the market to offer this alternative, Tropic Tan's new approach was welcomed by customers that preferred the no high-pressure sales approach and convenience and benefits of the membership . The idea was recognized in national industry publications. Originally met with skepticism, the innovative approach soon became the standard in the area and nationwide.
- First tanning center to introduce a 10 minute tanning bed to the area.
- First tanning center in central Texas to offer luxury high-pressure tanning, featuring the UltraSun Turbo 22,000 and Magnum 52 lamp tanning beds.
First tanning center in central Texas to offer the nationally acclaimed UV Free Magic Tan as used in Hollywood.
