Tint World is a franchise for a business providing window tinting, auto appearance services, car alarm, accessories, and audio and video systems. It was founded in 1982 and started franchising in 2007.
The first location was opened in Tamarac, Florida. They started out with just doing window tinting but they soon expanded and started offering other services such as wash and wax services.
