Inclusion marks fifth consecutive year National Automotive Styling Centers franchise has been part of magazine’s elite franchise rankings

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Jan. 15, 2019—Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, announced today the company has landed on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® List for the fifth straight year, climbing 72 spots to No. 279.

“Making this list five years in a row is an accomplishment that can be attributed to the fantastic franchise owners we have across the world,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “In 2018, we opened our first store in Dubai and our second in the Arabian Gulf. We have multiple stores set to open this year in the U.S., and the list is rapidly growing. Our success can only be credited to the great Tint World® team we continue to build.”

For four decades, Entrepreneur has been creating a comprehensive ranking of franchises annually. Using a proprietary ranking formula that is adapted to evolve through the years, “five pillars” or key factors are considered, including:

  • Costs and fees
  • Size and growth
  • Support
  • Brand strength
  • Financial strength and stability

“We’re continuously looking for ways to take our company to the next level,” Bonfiglio said. “It can be really easy for a franchise to become complacent. That’s not how we operate. Each placement on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500® has inspired our staff and franchise owners to kick it up a notch in the year ahead. We’ve been fortunate to have achieved this success and others, and we’re already eyeing ways we can get even better.”
