Every brand that Franchise FastLane adds to its portfolio has been carefully vetted and evaluated for its potential to achieve rapid, but sustainable, growth and expansion. Unit economics and market demand also play critical factors, which is why Black Optix Tint was a unanimous choice to join the FastLane in 2023. Black Optix Tint is a professional, high-quality window tinting and auto restyling brand that just happens to be the market leader in the $10.5 billion window tint industry.
In this edition of Franchise FastLane’s Brand Spotlight, we take a closer look at this automotive aftermarket service provider that’s bringing fast and efficient customer service to both residential and commercial clientele and tinting the future of franchising.
Black Optix Tint Value Propositions
Founded in 2014, Black Optix Tint is about to celebrate their 10th anniversary – but they only began franchising their business model in 2022. They’ve already sold more than 20 franchises in five different states – a fast start commonly seen in FastLane brands. The initial franchise fee is an affordable $49,500 – an opportunity for entrepreneurs to secure a low buy-in with extremely high potential. Black Optix Tint is focused on delivering a premium customer experience. They offer same-day service with no appointment necessary, all provided by professionals who take immense pride in their work. This is a brand with both B2B and B2C revenue potential, who maintain partnerships with several leading automotive vendors such as WeatherTech, Wheel Pros, and Memphis Car Audio.
Hear it From Us…
Patrick Sanchez, Franchise FastLane’s VP of Development for Black Optix Tint and Chris Michels Director of Development, recently shared their thoughts on what makes this brand’s potential stand out in a crowded franchise marketplace. “The franchise model of Black Optix Tint is designed for seamless operations, offering flexibility and high efficiency with minimal staffing, allowing the completion of over 20 car projects daily. Franchisees have the option to start with window tinting services and gradually expand into various auto restyling services like vinyl wraps, audio enhancements, remote starts, as well as a mobile arm focused on residential and commercial exterior tinting services. The company has flourished by capitalizing on numerous revenue streams spanning diverse service offerings, meeting consistently high demand irrespective of economic fluctuations. The operational framework not only maintains a manageable workload for owner/operators, but also appeals to those considering executive or manager-run ownership. The training and continuous support provided by Black Optix Tint HQ serve as a strategic advantage, simplifying operations compared to more intricate business structures.”
