Window Film Companies Rank Among Top Franchises for Veterans

December 6th, 2017 by Katherine Coig

Entrepreneur released its 2017 Top Franchises for Veterans list recently, which is comprised of 150 franchises that offer incentives to veterans looking to become franchisees, and two window film businesses were among them.

Companies representing the window film industry include Boca Raton, Fla.,-based Tint World and Cincinnati, Ohio-based Window Genie.

Tint World, which came in at number 88, was founded in 1982 and became a franchise in 2007.

The restyling franchise offers automotive, residential, commercial and marine window tinting and security-film services. Other automotive services provided include auto security, electronics, audio/video, styling, custom wheels and tires, detailing and reconditioning.

“The veterans who have joined the Tint World family have operated their shops with integrity and character,” said Charles Bonfiglio, Tint World CEO. “They take initiative, utilize a teamwork management style and have a strong personal commitment to their stores and the Tint World brand. The example they’ve set for our other franchisees has been amazing, and they always strive to maximize their potential. They are some of the best franchisees we could ask for, and we look forward to helping more realize the strong sense of accomplishment that can come from achieving goals and growing their own Tint World business.”

Window Genie made the list at number 107. The company was founded in 1994 and became a franchise in 1998.

The company originally focused only on window cleaning services, but CEO Richard Nonelle expanded to add a variety of services, including residential, commercial, decorative, safety and security film installations, pressure washing and gutter cleaning.

Entrepreneur considered several factors when ranking the top franchises, including how veteran franchisees are incentivized and supported by the company, and how the franchise scored on Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 list.
