Get to know iTAN!
San Diego’s A-List voted iTAN the Best Tanning Salon for 2015-2016, and every year, we work hard to make the salon experience even better for our clients. We’ve been in business for almost 20 years and have grown to 31 locations, the best part being that we’re just as passionate about tanning, health, and wellness as we were when we started with one salon back in 2001. Our family has grown, but our values haven’t changed!
The iTAN Story
iTAN’s founder and CEO, Faraje Kharsa, immigrated to the U.S. when he was just a teenager. His goal was to create a better life, and he dreamed of starting a business he could call his own! Faraje and his wife, Irina, worked hard to build the first iTAN in 2001. Together, they staffed every area of the salon, from running the register, to sanitizing beds, to providing the kind of customer service that would become an iTAN standard.
Word got out that iTAN was an awesome salon.
We became known for:
- Our beautiful salon interiors.
- High-end equipment.
- Unbeatable customer service.
- Affordable, flexible membership options.
In 2009, the Kharsas extended their American Dream to other entrepreneurs looking for a turn-key business concept. With franchising, iTAN keeps on growing as SoCal’s one-stop-shop for Sun, Spray, and Spa services. The mini-vacay that everyone — from students to working professionals — can go on, every day.
