National Automotive Styling Centers™ franchise expands with all-new Texas location
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Sept. 29, 2015 – Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers™, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, has opened its all-new Houston, Texas location. Owned and managed by Houston natives Brandon Sanders and Antwoine Stewart, along with business partner Emmanuel Sasu, the Westpark Drive store will provide area residents with a variety of services, including vehicle customization, residential and commercial window film and marine upgrades and styling.
“Brandon and Antwoine are perfect examples of just how accommodating the Tint World® franchise model is to business savvy individuals,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “With engineering and military backgrounds, their specialty before discovering our brand wasn’t necessarily automotive related, but they chose Tint World® because the system provided them with all the tools necessary to become a cornerstone of the Houston automotive accessories market.”
The process that led to the opening of the all-new Houston Tint World® began when Brandon, Antwoine’s uncle, and Emmanuel started looking for a new investment opportunity through franchise ownership. After considering his options for the area, Brandon consulted Antwoine and Emmanuel regarding a partnership, at which time they discovered the Tint World® business model. Taking into account their hometown’s affinity of vehicle customization, they moved forward by attending a franchise discovery day to learn more about the brand and about its franchise opportunities. As an eight-year Marine Corps veteran with management, staffing and recruiting experience, Antwoine found the Tint World® model appealing from the teamwork and comradery of the company staff and training sessions, as well as the “business in a box” package that allowed the group to begin operations very soon after orientation.
Located on Westpark Drive, the new Tint World® store opened its doors on August 23. Brandon and Emmanuel, are both Prairie View A&M University graduates, operate the business as owners while Antwoine serves as the stores’ general manager. The store will offer discounts and specials for Prairie View alumni and students, as well as U.S. Military veterans and active service members.
“What convinced us that Tint World® was the right opportunity was that it provides you to be your own boss and manage all aspects of a business, coupled with unlimited corporate training and support,” said Stewart. “We wanted to build a business that we enjoy and would benefit the local community we’re proud to call home, and given the size of Houston’s car and truck enthusiast scene, we’re well positioned to become the trusted automotive customization source for enthusiasts of all types.”
The all-new Tint World® Houston store is located at 5634 Westpark Drive, Houston, TX 77057 and is open Monday through Saturday. For those interested in employment opportunities, applications for experienced tint installers and 12 volt technicians are being accepted now. To find out more, call 832-404-2212.
