Store Will Install Automotive Window Tint Packages in Less Than an Hour
Moran Family of Brands, one of the nation’s leading franchises of general automotive repair, transmission repair, window tint and vehicle paint protection services, announced the addition of its newest company brand, Turbo Tint.
Turbo Tint specializes in automotive window tint services. Under the brand’s concept, customers can purchase a tint package and schedule an appointment online. When they arrive for service, they will only need to select their desired shade of window film. The entire installation process is completed in one hour or less.
In addition to automotive window tinting, Turbo Tint locations will also offer architectural window tinting solutions and paint protection services. Window tint options are available for residential or commercial buildings with the benefits of lower energy costs, excellent UV protection and increased comfort by preventing exposure to sunlight throughout the year. Paint protection services apply a thin protective film to maintain the condition of a vehicle’s exterior from damage due to scratches, chips, rust, fading and abrasion from rocks, pebbles and debris from the road.
The first Turbo Tint location opened in Oklahoma City, OK in October. It is owned by longtime Moran Family of Brands’ franchisee Greg Goodman, along with his son, Chandler, who converted their Alta Mere store to Turbo Tint. The Goodmans created the quick-installation, online purchasing and scheduling concept and worked with Moran executives to develop a new franchise brand.
The online ordering system was tested for a year and a half and proved to be extremely successful. When Goodman’s Alta Mere store was forced to close for all but three days in April due to the early stages of the pandemic, it took orders exclusively online. The store sold 250 window tint orders and increased sales by more than $10,000 over the previous April despite being closed for nearly the entire month.
“We are extremely excited to launch our new Turbo Tint brand and we believe it will revolutionize the automotive window tinting industry,” said Peter Baldine, President of Moran Family of Brands. “Greg Goodman has been one of our most successful franchisees and it was a wonderful experience in collaborating with him on this new concept. His store has already been very successful, and we know the Turbo Tint system presents an outstanding franchise opportunity for those wanting a solid opportunity in a growing industry that is really different than the competition.”
All Turbo Tint locations will feature a modern and spacious customer waiting area featuring oversized leather chairs, flatscreen TVs and computer workstations with free Wi-Fi in front of a cozy fireplace setting. While waiting for their tint installation, customers can enjoy complimentary premium coffee, beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks.
“One of the primary goals of creating Turbo Tint was to enhance the customer experience and give them exactly what they want,” said Goodman. “We made the ordering and purchasing process seamless and convenient through our website. Customers will be able to wait for their vehicles and know they will get the tint installation completed within an hour. While they are waiting, they will enjoy all the comforts of home with our customer waiting experience. We’ve had a great response so far and feel that this concept is a game-changer for the automotive window tinting industry.”
The Goodmans have plans to open their second Turbo Tint location in Oklahoma City in the first half of 2021. Moran Family of Brands has already awarded franchise agreements for up to 11 new locations in Florida. Goodman and his staff will provide training for new franchisees and installers at the Turbo Tint store in Oklahoma City.
