Company History

In 2000, an ECU School of Business student was in (what used to be) the Wendy’s drive-thru ordering a Double Stack. He saw an empty retail space beside (what used to be) the Campus Store gas station and knew it would be a great spot to put something for his classmates. He just didn’t know what.


So six months of planning and research ensued. With help from friends, family and a great business partner, a new business called The Sunshine Factory opened it’s doors on February 21st, 2001.

 First The Sunshine Factory

Fast forward a few years and the newcomer salon in that little spot beside the gas station was busting out of the seams with business. It was time to grow. So they purchased land a couple of doors over and the building you see today was designed and constructed.


Top to bottom, it was created from scratch with you, our tanning customers in mind. And thanks to you, we’re consistently voted the #1 tanning salon in Greenville, NC. Maybe it’s the convenient location, maybe it’s the amazing atmosphere and equipment, or it could be our super picky staff selection process. Whatever the secret formula, we’re so happy to still be here for you this many years later and we’re always open to comments and suggestions.

THANK YOU to our friends, past present and future! We truly appreciate you!
