Prospective Owner FAQs
Why should I join the organic industry?
We’re glad you asked! Not only is it the hottest trend but it’s a healthy approach that has great health benefits. Products and services in the organic field impact the quality of people’s lives, and that has meaning. UV tanning is on it’s way out, so here we come with the new healthy alternative.
What are the benefits of being an OBB owner?
Besides offering a business that provides a healthy alternative to UV tanning and that saves lives, we help you negotiate your lease, coordinate location, build out and set up your store, help you hire staff and set up marketing strategies, build your website, train you on every aspect of the business, provide tools and resources and provide ongoing support for all of these functions. This is a low overhead, easy to run business. Enjoy a business that gives you the satisfaction of contributing to your community. It’s a meaningful business that gives you a sense of purpose.
What if I don’t know about construction or real estate? Will you help me with my lease negotiation and the build out of my OBB?
Absolutely! Once we work together to determine the location for your OBB, our team will work with you on lease questions, design, feasibility studies, and construction build out.
How much time will I need to commit to being an OBB owner? How many hours per week will I be working?
This is your own personal preference. Some owners will work the store personally and then hire, and some will hire staff or a Manager and train right out of the gate. We do suggest that you dedicate a few hours a week to your new business until it’s thriving and you are able to hire a Manager. Typically, owners will promote an employee to a manager position, and assign certain hours for the employee to spray and carry out managerial duties. For the Owner who has multiple locations, hiring a Manager immediately to go through the training is important.
What if I don’t have a business degree?
You don’t have to have a degree to be a good business owner. If you are qualified for this opportunity, we have already determined that you have the background and credentials to run a successful business — from there it’s up to you to make it happen! If you have experience in customer service, are organized, have led others, are willing to market and have a good business mind set, we can help with the rest.
What support does OBB provide to its owners? How long will I receive this support?
We provide support, resources and tools to help you through your first year and beyond. Our progressive training program has dedicated hours set for onsite and offsite training, support tools, training videos, FAQs, best practices, collaboration meetings, and more. We provide an operations manual that literally walks you through all aspects of the business, step-by-step. If you need additional help beyond what we provide, there are paid training and classes available.
Can I become an OBB owner if I’ve never used spray tanning before?
Of course, this is about believing in the product and service you are providing; it’s a very good idea to experience the process so you have a full understanding of your business and brand.
What sets Organic Bronze Bar apart from your competitors?
Amazing customer service, proprietary, exclusive, solution that is hands down the best on the market, made with all-natural and organic ingredients. A beautiful retail design.

We take pride in our fair membership pricing, top notch retail products and, best of all, we save lives and make people feel confident about themselves. One person dies every hour from skin cancer in the U.S. alone. Need we say more?
How much do OBB services cost compared to other non-organic and organic salons?
Our services are comparable or lower than what the competition offers. While this may vary from location to location, we strive to remain available for our customers at a competitive cost. We are membership based which makes the pricing affordable, as well as we have tan packs pricing, teen pricing and happy hour pricing.
