March 22nd, 2023 by Chris Collier

Tint World Automotive Styling Centers, an auto accessory and window tinting franchise, celebrated the achievements of its franchise owners at the 2023 Tint World International Franchise Convention in Kissimmee, Fla., in February.

Tint World franchisees from the United States, Canada, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates attended the 15th annual event, held February 4-7 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center.

“This tremendous event allows the Tint World family to connect every year and also demonstrates our commitment to grow the company and support the success of our franchisees,” says Charles J. Bonfiglio, president and CEO of Tint World. “My goal is getting each Tint World location into our Million Dollar Club by generating a million dollars or more in annual revenue. Our conventions serve as an opportunity to inspire all of our franchisees and corporate team members, honoring those whose accomplishments and creativity have stood out in the last year.”

Nearly 30% of Tint World franchises are currently members of the company’s Million Dollar Club, earning at least $1 million in revenue in a calendar year. Thirteen franchises were recognized with Million Dollar Club awards at the event. Three others joined the Two Million Dollar Club and one achieved the Three Million Dollar Club status. Each Million Dollar Club franchisee was presented with a gold diamond ring.

The event was headlined by Bonfiglio’s annual state of the company address and keynote presentations by Myles Kovacs, founder of DUB Magazine and TIS Wheels, and Bryan Schmitt from Mobile Solutions Fabrication.
