Tint World Salutes High-Performers At International Franchise Convention

Tint World Holds International Franchise Convention

Leading automotive franchise hosts first virtual convention, provides direction moving forward.

Tint World Automotive Styling Centers, a leading window tinting and automotive accessory franchise, recognized its leading franchise owners during its 13th annual International Franchise Convention in February. 

Tint World’s convention pivoted to a virtual event due to safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite its virtual nature, the event still included vendor training, Q&A sessions and the annual awards ceremony. 

The conference featured keynote speakers Cordell Riley, a top franchising professional who has spent 20 years helping businesses thrive, and Dorien Morin-van Dam, a marketing specialist that works with various entrepreneurs, eCommerce and international brands.

“This year’s event is a little different from previous years because we had to host it virtually,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO and president of Tint World. “While we were not able to enjoy being in person, we were dedicated to giving our franchisees the same experience as in years past. Our franchise owners still were able to enjoy vendor training and several Q&A sessions geared toward enhancing their knowledge. 

“With that said, our franchisees are always looking for ways to improve and better their companies. Despite the challenges, we were able to thrive in 2020 without losing a single franchise. We look to building on that momentum moving forward in 2021.”
