Tint World® Opens First Car Wash-Auto Styling Center Combo in Stuart, Florida
National Automotive Styling Centers™ co-brands with PRO CAR WASH to create first store of its kind for the company
October 29, 2018 // Franchising.com // STUART, Fla. - Tint World® Automotive Styling Centers™, a leading auto accessory and window tinting franchise, announced the opening of its first car wash-auto center combo in Stuart, Fla. Under the ownership of local entrepreneurs Mike Edwards and Mark Stover, the store will serve Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties.
Edwards, a former investment banker who transitioned to car washes several years ago, will be the principal owner and Stover, who previously owned a car detail shop for 25 years, will be co-owner and also run the operations of the store.
“I wanted to take my car wash, and turn it into a total car center,” Edwards said. “Tint World® complements my car wash business really well. The car wash’s slow season just so happens to be Tint World®’s busy season. It’s the perfect marriage of two concepts.”
Edwards first became interested in a Tint World® franchise in 2013, and he brought Stover in from Chicago to oversee the new Tint World®’s day-to-day activities. The franchise will be adjacent to the former CarPro Auto Spa that will be rebranded as PRO CAR WASH.
“We recognized the opportunity to co-brand with car washes because of situations exactly like Mike and Mark’s,” said Charles J. Bonfiglio, president and CEO of Tint World®. “Their business savvy and familiarity with the after-market accessories and car wash businesses are going to put them in a position to be extremely successful.”
Tint World® of Stuart, which opened October 24, provides a full range of automotive styling and safety services including automotive tint, automotive paint protection film, mobile electronics, advanced driver-assistance systems and car stereo upgrades, and residential and commercial window film.
“This will give our CarPro Auto Spa, now PRO CAR WASH, customers more products and services to keep their car looking great and at peak performance,” Stover said. “Our car wash and Tint World® stores will be unlike any other in the country.”
The all-new Tint World® of Stuart is located at 1615 SE Decker Ave. For more information, call (772) 220-2222.
