Company continues strong franchise growth; robust 2018 predicted
The outlook was sunny at this year’s annual Tint World®, held Feb. 18-20 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando. Leading company franchisees were recognized for their very hard work, and Tint World® owner Charles Bonfiglio rolled out some new programs that will keep stores humming the rest of 2018.
Tint World franchisors from across the country attended product demonstrations, training sessions, seminars and a vendor trade show at the sun-soaked resort. They also received positive news of robust franchise growth over the past year. Highlights included:
- Chainwide sales grew more than 27 percent from 2016 to 2017.
- Store locations increased from 49 in 2016 to 54 in 2017.
- The company entered four new states in 2017, and there are 21 additional stores in development.
- Tint World leaders rolled out the new 5-Star Program to reinforce the company’s commitment to supporting individual franchise growth. The program will measure multiple aspects of performance, including customer relations, business systems and sales targets. The scores will be reviewed quarterly at the corporate level as a measurement of owner success.
“Bringing the entire company together every year to celebrate our victories sets the pace for the year ahead,” Bonfiglio said in a widely distributed media release published in multiple publications. “We get to celebrate and recognize the achievements of our growing family of franchise owners, but we also get to share and learn from each other’s success stories. The introduction of our new 5 Star Program reinforced our commitment to supporting the continuing growth and development of our owners.”
