Step 1. Contact Us To Discuss Concepts & Startup Costs


Once the overall concept is solidified our discussion turns to the several costs beyond equipment costs associated with starting a business.

• Build out costs • Lease rates • Utilities deposits • Prepaid expenses such as insurance • Sales tax bond • Startup legal costs • Pre-startup marketing • Cash to fund losses until business breaks even • Business plan development

Remember, you will need to personally put up the above funds even if you plan on financing equipment through your bank or a leasing company.

Step 2. Mock Budgets & Business Plans


When analyzing your budget and fiscal plan you will need to take into consideration how the cost of rent, insurance, company payroll and utilities will play into your overall business plan. This type of information, amongst other important factors, will help us assist you in choosing between buying or leasing, and selecting a financing company that meets your needs. These details will aid in market analysis, location selection, organization structure and more.

The next step of the planning and budgeting process is using the market research to determine the type of equipment solutions that best fit the demographics you’re looking to serve. ProSun offers a wide variety of equipment solutions to accommodate a range of services. These solutions include commercial tanning equipment, red light systems and wellness solutions with various benefits for your future clients.

Step 3. Financing & Business Entities


There are many ways that you can get the financing you need to open a spa or salon. You may need to raise the capital from family, friends, and personal loans. Alternatively, you can take your newly developed business plan to your bank and seek financing through a home equity line of credit.

Another option you can look into is the Small Business Administration. Many lenders have programs that provide loans specifically for salons and spa startups.


ProSun business associates will also walk you through starting your business entity, getting your FEI number and even more to ensure you are ready to open your doors when the time comes.
