“This event gave us an opportunity to come together to not only celebrate our wins, but also grieve our losses,” Bonfiglio says. “Rick opened our very first location in New York nearly nine years ago, while Mike just opened his store this past September. They were both strong brand ambassadors and wonderful members of the Tint World family. They’ll be missed, and these awards will serve to recognize future owner accomplishments while honoring Rick and Mike’s memory.”
