Guest Bio

Charles Bonfiglio / Founder & CEO of Tint World

At 21 years old, I started out in Brooklyn NY with a dream of moving to Florida to open my own car audio and accessory shop. I purchased a one-way flight to Fort Lauderdale over 30 years ago, and was introduced to franchising, which provided me with a blueprint for success. I became a Meineke franchisee and opened 10 automotive service franchises in South Florida. I learned how to build my staff so I could operate more franchise locations. I leveraged my franchise business success to buy real estate and construct buildings, and lease them to my franchised locations. During the 15 years franchise agreement terms, I was able to pay off my real estate mortgages and then sellmy franchise businesses and hold the real estate leases which allowed me to collect rental income forever. I would not have been able to reach this level of success without a franchise brand and system behind me. In 2007, I decided it was time to live my dream of creating a unique automotive lifestyle franchise system called #tintworld 🌎.
