3iii Advisory Board Member
CEO of LA Tan
As the founder of LA Tan, Nick Patel has built an empire of lights. With more than 160 locations around the country (and 60 in Chicago alone), his locally based company serves more than one million customers each month, making it the Midwest’s largest tanning chain and among the top three in the nation.
But as sizzling weather approaches, Patel is thinking beyond the bulb: This season he has invested in state-of-the-art spray tanning technology imported from Italy, which “gives the perfect bronze color that customers are looking for,” he says. “When the first spray tan machine came out, it didn’t give the best color. People got blotchy and orange, but it’s evolved, and now the top machine is the Autobronzer,” he says, adding that it’s available in nearly all of his locations.
Patel isn’t just out to give people a healthy glow — he also wants to give them the energy to do the things they love. That’s why he created Berry Boost Energy, an all-natural drink made with 30 fruits and berries that’s sold exclusively at his tanning salons. “I don’t drink any artificial energy drinks, so everything in Berry Boost Energy is plant-based, including the caffeine and sugars,” he says. Patel’s green diet is tried and true: He learned it from his 106-year-old grandmother, who still lives with him in his Morton Grove home.
