Moran Family of Brands, a franchisor of general automotive repair, transmission repair and window tint services, announced its newest franchise location with a Turbo Tint store in Delray Beach, Florida.
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 newest Turbo Tint store opened on Monday, August 9 and is located at 145 S. Congress Dr., Suite A, in Delray Beach. It will operate Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Delray Beach store will be co-owned by Erich Overhardt and Bruce Bastian, who purchased the rights to four counties in Southeast Florida - Martin, Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach. Overhardt and Bastian are committed to own 16 Turbo Tint locations and will be the area developer for additional franchises in Florida.
Overhardt, who will serve as Operating Partner for the local Turbo Tint stores, has nearly 40 years of experience in franchising. He was a franchise owner with Little Caesar’s Pizza for 12 years and Executive Director with Chipotle Mexican Grill for 11 years, as the company grew from two restaurants to more than 600 locations across the nation.
The local Turbo Tint store is the second location in the country. The first opened in Oklahoma City, OK in October 2020. The quick-installation, online purchasing and scheduling concept was tested for a year and a half before developing into a new franchise brand.
“We are very excited to open the newest Turbo Tint store in Delray Beach and bring this concept to Florida,” said Peter Baldine, President of Moran Family of Brands. “Erich and Bruce have a proven track record for growing a business and we believe they are the perfect team to expand the Turbo Tint brand throughout the state in the coming years.”
All Turbo Tint locations 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.
“We believe Turbo Tint is an ideal fit for the Delray Beach market and the state of Florida in general,” said Overhardt. “We specialize in window tinting and use state of the art products with UV protection. The customer experience is paramount, whether it is through the speed and convenience of ordering or being able to enjoy all the comforts of home in our waiting area. We will offer an outstanding service for both automotive and architectural window tinting to residents in South Florida.”
