March 10th, 2021 by Emmariah Holcomb

Tint World Automotive Styling Centers™ (Tint World), headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., recognized its top franchise owners during its 13th annual International Franchise Convention, which was held in February, according to the company.

Tint World’s convention pivoted to virtual this year due to safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The event included vendor training, motivational speakers and the annual awards ceremony.

The convention featured keynote speaker Cordell Riley, a top franchising professional who has spent 20 years helping businesses thrive, and Dorien Morin-van Dam, a marketing specialist that works with various entrepreneurs, eCommerce, and international brands.

“This year’s event is a little different from previous years because we had to host it virtually,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, Tint World CEO and president. “While we were not able to enjoy being in person, we were dedicated to giving our franchisees the same experience as in years past.”

“Despite the challenges, we were able to thrive in 2020 without losing a single franchise,” he added. “We look to build on that momentum moving forward in 2021.”
