[0:18] Today’s episode of Franchise Euphoria is brought to you by IndyFranchiseLaw.com, a leading resource in the franchise space. Head over to IndyFranchiseLaw.com learn more!

[0:59] Josh introduces today’s guest, Charles Bonfiglio, the president and CEO of Tint World.

[1:58] Josh welcomes Charles to Franchise Euphoria.

[2:21] Charles starts the interview by telling the audience about Tint World, which is an automotive after-market accessories and styling company and how he got involved with the business.

[6:34] Charles made the decision to purchase the real estate tied to his Meineke locations which Josh points out is a great way to preserve a secondary asset in case something goes wrong with the franchise.

[8:47] Over the years, Charles owned several Meineke franchises and sold them over the course of a few decades. He sold his last location when Tint World had about 30 locations in 2014.

[9:52] Charles was actually not the creator of the Tint World franchise. When he first moved to Florida, somebody had already created the concept, and while he anticipated they would be a competitor at some point, he ended up partnering up with him to franchise.

[11:51] Tint World became a franchise in 2007. As of today, they have 71 stores, several of which are outside of the US.

[12:54] Tint World provides its franchisees with a system, a platform that will take care of heavy lifting, branding, marketing, support, among a plethora of other things.

[14:38] When Charles was making the Tint World franchise, he crafted it with all the features he would want himself if he was a franchisee. These benefits maximize the potential for franchisee success.

[16:18] Tint World just released an e-commerce platform where franchisees can sell their products online.

[18:41] Charles finds that having the “franchisee mentality” is the best way to run a franchise system; equipping them with the right tools and support is key for success.

[20:14] In addition to being someone who likes automobiles, a good Tint World franchisee is someone who likes working with customers and has the ability to maintain a growth mindset.

[22:18] One of the biggest challenges Charles has faced as a franchisor has been setting and achieving goals for their average store sales and continually pushing the boundaries to get their sales even higher.

Started listening to Josh's podcast after the wife and I decided to buy a franchise and I quickly went through about 200 episodes on 1.5x & 2x, before signing on to purchase a franchise. Josh's info was an invaluable part of our decision to buy, and after listening to so many episodes, I felt like I knew and trusted him on a personal level, so it was a no-brainer to enlist his services when it came time to review the franchise agreement. Josh was super easy to talk to and very empathetic to our needs, and being first time business owners, we needed all the empathy we could get. Josh helped us negotiate a great deal with the franchisor and we were very happy with his services. Great podcast, great guy, great service to anyone involved in the franchise world!
