July 31, 2015 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, Fla. – Tint World®, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, has officially announced the opening of its Denver, Colorado location. Owned and operated by e-commerce specialist, Nathaniel Long, the Automotive Styling Centers™ location will provide area residents with vehicle customization services including window tinting, lighting, exterior protection, audio and mobile electronics installations, and more.
“Nathaniel is no stranger to automotive e-commerce, having built a handful of successful parts supply businesses in the past,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, CEO of Tint World®. “As a Tint World® owner, he’ll be able to expand on that experience to help his customers pick the perfect aftermarket parts and accessories for their vehicles and get them installed on-site with confidence.”
Long enters the Tint World® system as long-standing e-commerce professional with more than 15 years of experience buying and selling parts, supplies and services. Getting his start in the early 2000s, Long’s passion for off-roading led him to create and build a four-wheel drive parts supply website that is still running today. Having left Colorado in 2008, Long then spent seven years in New York City working for a global e-commerce service company, serving as director of research and development. There, he traveled to national trade shows to explore new markets for the company, subsequently meeting with Tint World® at the 2014 SEMA Show. After a discussion with the brand, Long decided it was time to expand his own portfolio with something different, scheduling a meeting with Tint World® to explore ownership options. After a successful meeting and some market research, an all-new location in Denver was selected for his store. As an Automotive Styling Centers™ owner, Long aims to use his passion for vehicles and expertise in e-commerce to help the greater Denver community build their ideal car, truck or SUV, and hopes to expand to multi-store ownership in the future.
“My familiarity is with buying and selling quality aftermarket parts and accessories for all types of vehicles, and with Tint World®, I can back that experience with a well-established name and a brick-and-mortar shop to install the parts I sell,” said Long. “Denver is a great location for my business, and I’m looking forward to building a solid customer base with the great support from Tint World® and eventually expand to become a multi-store owner.”
The all-new Tint World® Denver location features a 2772 square foot facility complete with showroom, installation shop and large outside area for detailing and spray-in bedliner installations. Located at 2555 W. Evans Ave., 80219 and open Monday through Saturday, Tint World® Denver is now accepting customers for all automotive styling needs as well as applications for experienced tinters and detailers.
