Chad and Jennifer Wohlford opened their first salon in 1998. They opened with three used tanning beds and two new hexes and lived in the back of their first salon. They had a goal to own three tanning salons by the time they were 30 years old; they more than exceeded that goal by opening six salons. In 2006 they opened a quick casual restaurant in Bay City called the Souper Café, and in 2012 expanded the café with a location in Saginaw.
After they opened the last salons, they redirected their focus on faith and family. Currently they are very involved in their church and built their foundation on the Lord. In 2016 Chad and Jennifer’s family grew from 2 to 6! They adopted two of their two daughters after fostering them for 2 ½ years. Along with finalizing their adoption in 2016, Jen gave birth to their twin daughters! Chad and Jennifer now feel everything fits into place for them and their family is complete.
