Tint World franchise founder and CEO Charles Bonfiglio knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a successful franchise location owner. As a prior franchisee who is now a franchisor, Bonfiglio looks for a few character traits in anyone who wants to become a part of the Tint World family.
“One of the first areas we look for is natural leadership. Do they know when to do versus when to delegate? Can they take ownership of the organization as a whole? Can they motivate their team and drive them toward the goal? When you’re the owner of one of our franchise locations, you need to have innate drive and purpose,” said Bonfiglio.
Being a team player is equally important to the success of the franchise. “We’ve built a proven system for success based on 40-plus years of experience,” said Bonfiglio. One of the benefits of joining an established franchise is having access to their playbook for success. It may be tempting to deviate from the system, especially as an entrepreneur, but it’s important to follow all parts of the process faithfully.
Tint World’s continued growth and success depend largely on the collective franchise focusing on a common goal. As a result, it’s critical that franchise location owners fully embrace the values of the brand and incorporate them into their daily operations. “If your values align with your passions, your career ceases to be work and simply becomes what you enjoy doing. Living the Tint World lifestyle is what it’s all about,” said Bonfiglio.
“Tint World provides support to get owners well-prepared for opening day, including a six-week discovery process to understand everything about the business, new owner onboarding and hands-on in-store training,” said Bonfiglio. Owners also have peace of mind knowing ongoing marketing and operational support is only a phone call away.
“For me, it’s not just a matter of someone buying a franchise or buying a license. We actually look forward to helping someone build their business for success over the long run,” he said.
