A Beem of Light in South Carolina: Charleston’s Newest Franchise Owner
Updated: Aug 28
We are excited to announce the newest owner of Beem Light Sauna: Tim West. With his business partner, Justin Davis, Tim will be bringing Beem to Charleston, South Carolina, where he is excited to make an impact on the health and wellness of the local community.
Who Is Tim West?
Tim had an illustrious career in the corporate world at the executive level. But when he found himself caught in a career transition, he began looking to build something for himself. He did not want to be reliant on a corporate job and salary to maintain his lifestyle. Plus, he wanted the chance to pursue his own interests and focus on franchise opportunities that incorporated some sort of health-related aspect.
Tim found FranCoach after listening to the Franchising 101 Podcast, which helped him learn more about the possibility of franchise ownership. He was initially looking at a few different options on his own, including a health-oriented Mexican restaurant, gyms, and other wellness-focused businesses – but none of them seemed quite right. Tim worked with FranCoach’s founder and CEO, Tim Parmeter, to find the perfect match for all of his requirements.
Why Did Tim Make a Career Change?
Tim’s career transition was the initial catalyst for exploring franchise ownership, but after he got another corporate job, he decided that he still wanted to pursue the opportunity on a semi-absentee basis.
FranCoach paired Tim with Beem Light Sauna, and the brand immediately resonated with him. Tim went through the entire Discovery Process and, in the end, knew that Beem was the best fit. But a different candidate was awarded the territory that Tim was initially hoping for.
Undeterred and committed to the brand, Tim was able to pivot and chose a location in Charleston, South Carolina. Tim’s story perfectly illustrates one of the central truths about franchise ownership: You will never have to make a decision. At the end of the day, it will be so abundantly clear which franchise is right for you that the final choice won’t be a choice at all. In Tim’s case, he was so sure about Beem that he was willing to amend his initial plan to work with the brand. If that’s not confidence, we don’t know what is!
Here’s what Tim Parmeter had to say about Tim West’s immediate connection with Beem:
“He had such great alignment with Beem and their service offerings. He was excited about the ability to make a difference in the community from the standpoint of helping people achieve healthier, better lifestyles. And of course, Tim is going to follow the plan laid out by the franchisor. He will be committed to following their proven business model.”
Why Will Tim Make a Great Franchise Owner?
Right away, Tim was excited about Beem Light Sauna and their team – and the enthusiasm went both ways. Here’s what Jordan Reed, the brand’s Development Director, had to say about why Tim and Justin are sure to succeed as franchise owners:
“Tim West and Justin Davis were the perfect candidates for Beem Light Sauna! They were embracing the process, excited to learn about the brand, and felt a connection to the team immediately. Tim Parmeter was a joy to work with as well; he was detailed about his clients, was communicative on their hot buttons, and always made himself available for updates and check-ins. Can't wait to work with more of his amazing candidates!”
Why Did Tim Choose Beem Light Sauna?
Beem Light Sauna is a wellness center that combines a refined, spa-like setting with proven light therapy offerings, including infrared light therapy, red light therapy, and chromotherapy. Situated in the $4.9 trillion wellness industry, Beem provides its franchisees with the opportunity to get in on the cultural shift toward holistic healing with unmatched support and industry-leading sales and operational training.
From the get-go, Tim had a strong interest in owning a business that would contribute to the health and wellness of his community. From a business model standpoint, Beem is simplistic in what they offer and in the staffing they require. Plus, it is easy to manage from a semi-absentee standpoint – and, as it turns out, easy to manage remotely.
When Tim and his business partner, Justin, attended an in-person Meet the Team Day with Beem, they were simply blown away. They were able to build strong connections with the Beem team, and the support from the franchisor, the culture, and everything they had to offer made a big impact. Tim and Justin are thrilled to bring Beem Light Sauna to Charleston.
Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Tim West and wishing him luck as a new owner of Beem Light Sauna!
