Turbo Tint Opens Newest Franchise in Louisiana

Turbo Tint Opens Newest Franchise in Louisiana

The store will install automotive window tint packages in less than one hour.

Moran Family of Brands announced its newest franchise location, a Turbo Tint store in Metairie, Louisiana.

The newest Turbo Tint franchise opened on Tuesday, June 13, and is located at 2800 Athania Parkway in Metairie. It will be the fifth location in the country and the first in Louisiana. After launching its first store in Oklahoma City, OK, in October 2020, the brand added two locations in Florida before opening the latest store in Austin, Texas in May. The company says it anticipates having 18-21 franchise locations operating by the end of the year.

The new Turbo Tint store will be owned by George Lugo, who grew up in Metairie and now lives in Kenner. Lugo has had a lifelong interest in cars and spent more than 30 years working in the tire industry, mostly in sales as a manufacturer representative, Turbo Tint says. The store in Metairie will be a new building that is approximately 4,000 square feet and features two automotive tint bays, one paint protection bay and a customer lounge.

Turbo Tint says it specializes in automotive and architectural window tinting solutions. Under the brand’s concept, customers can purchase a tint package and schedule an appointment online. When they arrive for service on their vehicle, they will only need to select their desired shade of window film. The entire installation process is completed in one hour or less, the company says.

In addition to automotive and architectural window tinting solutions, Turbo Tint locations also offers ceramic coating and paint protection services. Window tint options are available for residential or commercial buildings with the benefits of lower energy costs, excellent UV protection and increased comfort by preventing exposure to sunlight throughout the year, the company says. Paint protection services apply a thin protective film to maintain the condition of a vehicle’s exterior from damage due to scratches, chips, fading and abrasion from rocks, pebbles, and debris from the road.

“With the hot weather we receive in Louisiana, window tinting is a popular business as people look to keep their vehicles cooler and the interior of their cars from fading,” said Lugo. “The advantage Turbo Tint provides its customers is speed and convenience of service. For anyone who has considered window tinting and put it off due to the time it takes, Turbo Tint will make the process easy and enjoyable.”
