National Automotive Styling Centers™ franchise launches first West Virginia location
BOCA RATON, Fla. – July 8, 2015 – Tint World®, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, has recently announced the opening of its Beckley, West Virginia location. Owned and operated by Rick and Sandy Robertson, the husband and wife team will provide area residents with vehicle customization services including window tinting, full details, audio and mobile electronics installations, and more.
“There are more than 700,000 registered automobiles in West Virginia, and with the Robertson’s all-new store we’re looking forward to tapping into this impressive automotive market,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “Rick’s dealership background paired with his dedication and attention to detail make him the perfect professional to operate a Tint World® franchise and we’re excited for what the future holds in Beckley.”
Rick and Sandy Robertson were first introduced to Tint World® in 2014 when Rick began looking for a business ownership opportunity. As a previous service advisor for a West Virginia automotive dealership, Rick took notice of the increasing popularity of automotive styling requests such as window tinting, remote starting and stereo upgrades, which led to the discovery of the Tint World® franchise system. After attending an October discovery day, the Robertsons decided to open their own Automotive Styling Center™ and began the process in February 2015. The store celebrated its grand opening in late June.
“When I was working for a dealership, I continuously noticed the sheer number of customers coming in who wanted to have their cars customized,” said Rick Robertson. “Now that our Tint World® has opened, we can better meet that demand by providing our community advanced installation techniques for automotive, marine, residential and commercial window tinting and 12 volt upgrades, all in a welcoming, one-stop shop atmosphere.”
The all-new Tint World® Beckley location features a 3600 square foot facility complete with a showroom and installation shop. Rick and Sandy serve as the owners, with Rick’s automotive experience aiding the installations, detailing and tinting services and Sandy’s extensive human resources background serving as back-end assistance for the location. Tint World® Beckley is located at 89 Hickory Drive, 25801 and open Monday through Saturday.
