National Automotive Styling Centers™ awards multi-store owners with prestigious International Franchise Association award
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Oct. 7, 2015 – Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers™, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, has named Tim and Stacy Kjaer their 2015 Franchisees of The Year. Awarded at the International Franchise Association (IFA) conference in Washington, D.C., the IFA-sponsored accolade acknowledges the Kjaer’s rapid growth since 2013 to become multi-location Tint World® owners.
“Tim and Stacy started their Tint World® business as a simple add-on to their existing automotive business and it quickly turned into their main focus,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “The Kjaer’s now own two stores, one in Medford New York and one in Pittsburgh, and they plan to keep this expansion going by opening even more stores in the near future. Their success is proof of what entrepreneurs can accomplish with the Tint World® franchise model.”
Tim and his wife Stacy started as Tint World® franchise owners when they converted from independent car dealers in 2013. When the customer demand for their co-branded store began to outweigh their original business, the Kjaer’s switched their focus to Tint World® offerings such as window tinting, mobile electronics, car audio, and custom installations. Today both their Pennsylvania and New York stores bring in countless customers looking for automotive and marine upgrades as well as commercial and residential window tinting services. The Kjaer’s plan to leverage their success by opening more Tint World® locations in New York soon.
“Stacy and I are business owners at heart and wanted an opportunity that would allow us manage ourselves, and grow within an exciting industry,” said Tim Kjaer. “With Tint World® we’re given marketing and advertising support, buying power for products our customers demand, and have continual operational backing that doesn’t get in the way of the freedom we want as owners.”
