The Tint World® Express Program is a Co-Brand – Store-in-a-Store Concept that works well with Car Dealerships, because it provides the Dealership with a complete in-house aftermarket accessory department to handle all sales, installation and fulfillment services by a professional franchise system that empowers your Car Dealership(s) with a National Brand. Single or multi-owned Car Dealership(s) can now advertise and promote all its aftermarket services under one co-brand identity, backed by a uniform warranty.
No more need to hire unequipped installers or outsource it to one or more local guys, making it hard for Car Dealers to manage and maintain a consistent quality aftermarket service offering due to:
- inconsistent quality brand products
- inconsistent quality installation capabilities
- inconsistent dress code and proper uniform attire
- inconsistent accountability of warranty service
- limited sales and service knowledge
- lack of manpower during peak periods
How does Tint World® Express Franchise Program Work?
When a Car Dealership decides to add a Tint World® Automotive Styling Center to its Dealership, we place a Tint World® franchise owner into the requested Car Dealership as its business premises. The franchise candidate must be accepted and fully trained by Tint World® as part of the Franchise Agreement and System. The Car Dealer can either suggest a franchise prospect or Tint World® will provide a franchise owner to operate the business.
The franchise owner will be making a substantial investment to purchase and open the business according to Tint World®‘s high standards and specifications, so Dealerships can be assured to receive courteous, professional, knowledgeable trained staff to promote the co-branded quality aftermarket sales and installation center.
As part of the Initial setup, Tint World® corporate provides a week of onsite training for each new franchised location to refine and adapt the new business into the dealership’s operation and to work with each department to maximize desired results. As a national franchise, Tint World® assigns an operations manager to each franchisee to provide guidance and assistance. Additionally, Tint World® provides an 800 Customer Service Number for customers that require questions, assistance or concerns.
Tint World® provides all the in-store marketing materials, menu boards and brand advertising programs. We also customize our marketing materials to focus of the products, brands, and features of each dealership, to better co-brand with your Dealership. The www.Tint World.com website provides a store locator, so customer looking for a Tint World® center in your area will find Tint World® at your Car Dealership. Car Dealers can also add Tint World® offers and promotions to their advertising programs to reflect their commitment to aftermarket accessory services, gain more customer traffic and make more sales.

Getting Started with the Tint World® Express Program
To get started, Tint World® only requires a commitment to the program from the Car Dealership by providing a lease agreement to Tint World® for a secure location of operation. The lease agreement should reflect that instead of any fixed rent cost, the lease will be paid by a “Shared Revenue Schedule & Vendor Agreement” that will contain a wholesale discount cost of the regular retail prices that Tint World® charges. The discount structure can be set up to be a fixed discount price by product and service and/or a percentage discount by product line. Tint World® will work with each Dealership to set up these arrangements to create a win-win situation.
