Tint World Automotive Styling Centers, a leading international auto accessory and window tinting franchise, recently ranked in Entrepreneurmagazine’s 2021 Franchise 500. Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the 2021 list ranks Tint World as No. 1 in category as well as No.290 overall for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.
“2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year of unusual opportunity,” said Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur editor-in-chief. “Franchises were able to be nimble and innovative, serving the needs of franchisees and customers in ways that will resonate for many years to come. We believe that, when we eventually look back on this time, we’ll see it as a moment when many brands defined themselves for the future.”
In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 42-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.
“This ranking reflects the commitment of everyone in the Tint World family,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World. “The Entrepreneur Franchise 500 is the gold standard for franchises, and appearing on the list for seven years in a row affirms that what we’re doing works. And even though we’re taking time to celebrate this honor, we won’t lose sight of our goals for 2021.”
