Entrepreneurship is hard work, but the benefits that come from owning and operating a business, including being your own boss and pursuing your passion, can be a worthy tradeoff. This is especially true when entrepreneurship takes the form of business ownership within a well-established franchise that has a strong track record for growth and an even stronger commitment to helping you achieve your own levels of success.
From a robust onboarding process that sets new business owners up for success to the ongoing support that franchisees can count on, Tint World has built a model of business ownership that provides peace of mind and takes the guesswork out of the equation for prospective owners.
“Franchisees can be a very unique group of people. They are entrepreneurs, but they also need to stay within the guidelines of the brand,” said Charles Bonfiglio, founder and CEO of Tint World and a former franchisee. “It can be tempting to go off the path with your own ideas, but even a good idea might have been tried before and maybe won’t make you money. Our job is to guide people and continue delivering the message that we’re here to help them stay on track and remind them that we’re all about them succeeding for themselves.”
That said, Bonfiglio is a firm believer that remaining flexible – even within a well-oiled machine of a franchise system like the one Tint World has built over the years – is the key to meeting franchisees in the middle and making sure their ambitious spirit and creative ideas play a role in Tint World’s continued growth.
“Our franchisees are the ones on the front lines with our customers, so if they have an experience that gives them an idea, they can pass along that input to you. We always want them to feel encouraged to share their insights and feedback. As the franchisee, you have to be open; you can’t just point to the contract. It’s not about that; it’s about working together to create something that works for everyone,” he said.
