Tint World® Franchisees love to share their success stories.
Excellent franchise. They have everything you need to be successful. I look forward to the Tint World® Franchise Convention and Awards Banquet training every year. They offer the greatest brands and have a great corporate team.
The marketing department of Tint World® is amazing. I have an automotive accessory background and I prefer to be part of the franchise system because they do it for me at my stores. It is a huge added value to what they offer.
I chose to join the Tint World® family and become owner of the Pittsburgh location after seeing the massive success the franchisees are having and learning about the dedication that the Tint World® corporate team has for the store owners to thrive.
Opening a Tint World Franchise has been a great experience. We've been open for a little over a year now and have far exceeded our goals!
I want to thank the CEO, Charles Bonfiglio for being a great role model for the last five years and taking the time to share his wisdom with me; business and non-business related. He represents everything I'm striving to become one day - in business, as a father and a husband - a true inspiration! Thank you!
This is an excellent franchise opportunity. The Corporate Team is great to work with. Charles' passion and excitement is contagious!
We have had a great transition from the moment we considered a franchise purchase with Tint World to opening our store. They have a great team to support you the entire way!
I chose to open a Tint World franchise after seeing several stores and meeting the dedicated, professional staff at the corporate office. They are very real people that care about creating opportunity for more people to build their own successful business.
The reason I chose Tint World is that they treat you like family. I felt very welcomed during Discovery Day and Charles, the CEO is so passionate with Tint World and it shows it in how Tint World keeps successfully growing.
I just wanted to thank you all for the training at Corporate. It’s obvious to me why the Franchise is growing so fast.
