After taking time off from her career as an entrepreneur to spend more time with her children, Kelly Driver was looking for a new opportunity. When she noticed that a tanning salon on Grand River in Williamston
had closed, she saw her opportunity.
Driver and her oldest daughter purchased and re-opened the 900 square foot Bronzed Tanning Salon
in the spring and have been busy serving the community ever since.
“We’re pretty competitively priced,” says Driver. “It’s very homey in here. We don’t try to push stuff on people, so people are just really comfortable here.”
One of the things most people don’t realize about tanning, says Driver, is that it’s not all about cosmetics. Bronzed Tanning serves a number of clients who tan for medical reasons.
“I have several people in here for psoriasis and eczema,” Driver says. “We try to educate people, whether they’re here for health reasons, or to have a healthy glow.”
Bronzed Tanning Salon currently employs Driver and her two daughters. She hopes to expand the salon’s services to include hydromassage.
