Vantrepreneurs: The Tan Van

In the first part of our Vantrepreneur series we spoke to Katie Collarbone, founder and owner of Tan Van, a mobile tanning salon.

Last year, Katie decided to buy a Ford Transit and launch her own spray tanning business out of the back of it.

She’d never owned a van before, let alone driven one, yet the advantages of taking her business on the road and into a van were too good to be missed.

“There are fewer overheads and you take the business to them so it’s more convenient,” said Katie.

And after almost a year in business and offers to franchise Tan Van, it’s clear she’s on to a winner.
