Tint World® Online
Tint World® has launched the new Tint World® online store that will now allow our customers to purchase an expanded line of automotive accessories–with over 2 millions products available–that include performance parts, car and truck accessories, mobile electronics, and custom wheel and tire packages. The online source will give customers the chance to browse through several categories of automotive products and accessories conveniently at home or on the go. Through the online store, consumers will also be able to request a local Tint World® store technician for an at-home installation.
Keep an eye out for additional manufacturer partnerships this year, which will expand our aftermartket services. Recent partnerships in 2013 already led to the addition of spray in bedliners, wheel and rim accessories, and mobile electronics. Tint World® continues to collaborate and partner with other manufacturers in an effort to build an overarching presence in the automotive styling industry–providing a vast amount of products and services consumers are looking for.
We’ve noted Tint World’s plans to go international before, but this is the year when Tint World® will open its’ doors in Saudi Arabia, Canada, and Abu Dhabi in March, April, and June, respectively. The demand for a one-stop auto styling and auto repair shop is in high demand and Tint World® is more than happy to deliver on these quality products and services for consumers across the border and sea.
2014 is already shaping up to be a great year for Tint World® and its only just begun.
2013 marked the largest turnout at the Annual Tint World® National Convention, which was held at SEMA in Las Vegas, NV. Tint World franchisees, friends, and family from all over the US gathered in Las Vegas to learn about new aftermarket trends and attend various training seminars.
Tint World® made the Inc 500|5000 list of fastest growing private companies for the third consecutive year. Entrepreneur Online also included Tint World® in their annual Top 500 Franchises list for 2013. Franchisees Joe Fazio and Daniel Apa were awarded Tint World® franchisees of the year by the International Franchise Association.
Tint World® not only strengthened existing partner relationships, but also formed new partnerships with top brands across the US. Tint World® is now proud to offer Rim-Pro Tec, Focal, and Putco products. Tint World® also introduced Tint World® branded HID conversion kits and spray in bedliner products.
This year, Tint World® opened eight new stores across the US in the states of Florida, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Kansas. 2013 marked a year of exponential growth for Tint World, with no signs of slowing down in 2014.

Tint World® corporate officers and franchise owners took some time off from their normal duties to attend the Tint World® National Convention, which was held at SEMA in Las Vegas, NV. The annual convention gives Tint World® team members an opportunity to attend training seminars, meet with partners and vendors, and share business successes.
SEMA is the world’s largest automotive aftermarket tradeshow, making it the perfect destination for Tint World® corporate officers, franchisees, friends, and family. This year’s National Convention had the largest franchise attendance and the team spent time attending technical and sales training from top brands such as SunTek, Memphis, Avidworx, Focal, and Compustar. There was also plenty of time to tour the tradeshow to scope out the latest technology and products to hit the aftermarket industry and strengthen vendor relationships. New product demonstrations and installation techniques gave franchisees an idea of what they can implement at their own stores.
Tint World® has experienced incredible growth in 2013, and attending SEMA was a first for many of the new franchise owners. Overall, SEMA was a huge success and the franchisees left invigorated to grow and drive Tint World® forward in 2014. Click here to view the full Tint World® SEMA 2013 photo gallery.

Tint World® Express is a store-within-a-store concept, giving car dealerships and other automotive businesses an opportunity to outfit their current business with a Tint World® Styling Center. Paul Sawhney of Baltimore, Maryland is the first to complete the co-branding program and has recently opened a Tint World® Express within his pre-owned car sales business.
The co-branding program allows Paul to utilize the franchise’s processes as well as installation and fulfillment of service expertise ranging from window tinting, mobile electronics, car audio and video, car accessories, and more. Furthermore, by co-branding with Tint World, Paul will benefit from years of experience in the aftermarket accessory industry—working with quality brand products, expert installation capabilities, and outstanding customer service standards.
To successfully co-brand with the dealership, Tint World® will provide all in-store marketing materials, menu boards, brand advertising programs, as well as customized marketing materials to focus on the products, brands and features of the dealership.
With the addition of a Tint World® Express at his current dealership, it won’t be long until his business gets an extra boost.
