Tint World Automotive Styling Centers hosted its tenth annual International Franchise Convention at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando February 18-20, recognizing multiple top-performing franchise owners.

The company reported an increase of chain-wide sales of more than 27 percent from 2016 to 2017, and an increase in store locations from 49 in 2016 to 54 in 2017. The company entered four new states in 2017, and there are 21 additional new stores currently in development.

“Bringing the entire company together every year to celebrate our victories sets the pace for the year ahead,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World. “We get to celebrate and recognize the achievements of our growing family of franchise owners, but we also get to share and learn from each other’s success stories. The introduction of our new 5 Star Program reinforced our commitment to supporting the continuing growth and development of our owners.”

The company presented the following awards in recognition of achievements earned throughout the 2017 business year:
