April 1, 2016

National Automotive Styling Centers franchise opens new Gulfport location

BOCA RATON, Fla. – April 1, 2016Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, opened its first Mississippi location in Gulfport. Owned and operated by brothers Donnie and Steve Saucier, the new store will be the state’s first Tint World® and will provide residents with a variety of services, including vehicle customization, residential and commercial window film, and marine upgrades and styling.

“I’m always excited when we enter a new state,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “Especially when you’ve got experienced owners like Donnie and Steve. As the first Tint World® store in Mississippi, they will give residents on the Gulf Coast an opportunity to take advantage of everything our franchise has to offer.”

The Sauciers have extensive automotive and franchise experience, and after researching new opportunities, came away impressed with what Tint World® had to offer.

“I loved the concept of Tint World®,” said Donnie Saucier. “Their marketing plan is second to none based on my experience, and the fact that we’re a locally owned and operated store coupled with a national presence made it a really good fit for us. Based on the success stories of other stores and the buying power we have, we’ll be able to bring a lot of great products and services to the Gulfport-Biloxi area.”

“We are very excited to finally introduce a high end, all-encompassing automotive styling center to the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” said Steve Saucier. “As someone who grew up in the area, the opportunity to bring an operation of this caliber to our hometown is especially fulfilling to me. We look forward to providing top notch service to this community for many years to come.”

The all-new Tint World® Gulfport store is located off U.S. Route 49 at 15237 Russell Blvd, Gulfport, MS 39503 and is open Monday through Saturday. For those interested in employment opportunities, applications are being accepted now. To find out more, call (208) 376-6100.
