Weston, Fla. -- Tint World, the nation’s leading auto styling franchise, is getting set for a busy June as it hosts five different grand opening events in Florida and North Carolina. The locations, all of which have had “soft” openings, will properly greet new and existing customers with fun, food and deals on window tinting, auto detailing, car audio installations and innovative products for the car.
The schedule and locations are as follows:
- • June 2 - 2820 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL
- • June 9 - 4407 Landover Rd., Greensboro, NC
- • June 10 - 1260 W. Sunrise Blvd., East Ft. Lauderdale, FL
- • June 16 - 1630 S. Congress Ave., Boynton Beach, FL
- • June 23 - 6331 South Blvd., Charlotte, NC
“We are extremely pleased with the pace at which our franchise operations have grown,” said Tint World Franchise President / CEO Charles Bonfiglio. “More than that, we are honored to have attracted enterprising individuals to our franchise family, and fulfilled in providing them with a solid retail foundation to grow as entrepreneurs.”
One of those entrepreneurs, Cary Lopez, opened his first location with Tint World in February in West Palm Beach. A general contractor for more than 20 years, Lopez began looking at new business opportunities as development slowed down. “Tint World was a great fit from a business standpoint,” he said. “It was something I could learn quickly and get up and running without a lot of hassle, and the franchisor offered great support.”
Lopez opened the second of his targeted six Florida locations in Boynton Beach this past month, and is enthusiastic about how both stores are progressing. “We’re entering the prime season for window tint and marine services,” he added, “and I’m excited to see how we do during this peak business period.”
The other new owners in this group anticipate strong customer traffic in their respective grand opening events, and credit Tint World’s franchise operations with dynamic support. Danny Shenko, who opened the East Ft. Lauderdale location, noticed “immediate business as soon as we first opened our doors. Our grand opening event will be even bigger.”
Joe Fazio and Daniel Apa, co-owners of the Greensborough location, saw more marine services and dealership work upon opening. “We were busy from the get-go,” said Fazio. “This is only the first of three locations we plan to open, and if this store is any indication, business will be good.”
Paul Hosage opened his Tint World location in Charlotte, relying on the systems and support offered by the Tint World franchise. “The people I worked with were extremely helpful during build-out and through our soft opening,” he said. “The corporate staff from Tint World was there for every step of the way. Furthermore, I was able to become factory authorized for the top audio brands due to Tint World’s franchise partnerships within our industry.”
Tint World is already scheduling future events as new stores are slated to open in Arizona, Florida, Texas, New York and Illinois. More than 40 locations are projected to open or begin development by the end of the year.
“This is really the fun part of what we do,” added Bonfiglio. “Our company is built on the positive experiences of the customers that come through our doors. Grand opening events like these show them that our company and our franchisees are not just looking for their business today, but for their friendship for life.”
