HOUSTON, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinot's Palette, a national Paint and Sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, has recently expanded its presence in the Western U.S. with seven new studios.
Earlier this quarter, the franchise expanded into California with a location in Danville, which opened in the summer of 2013. Two more California franchises – one in Valencia and one in Irvine – have been awarded and are slated to open in early 2014. Additional expansions for this quarter include the company's first-ever locations in Arizona, Nevada, and Washington.
The franchise's Phoenix, Arizona, studio opened in fall of 2013. Studios in Spokane, Washington, and Las Vegas, Nevada, will open in 2014.
Pinot's Palette is the fastest-growing Paint and Sip brand in the country. This year, the company added 25 new locations to their growing list of partner studios. This quarter, they are seeing heavy expansion in the West Coast markets.
Company CEO Craig Ceccanti says he plans to further encourage new franchisees in the West by attending the West Coast Franchise Expo in Anaheim, California, on October 24-26. The expo, which will feature hundreds of top franchises from around the country, will give Pinot's Palette an opportunity to connect with potential West Coast franchise partners.
"We are very excited about our current and future expansion in the West Coast," says Ceccanti. "Our owners have an excellent opportunity to impact culture in their communities with our unique and profitable business model."
This year has been a good one for the popular Paint and Sip franchise: In February 2013, Pinot's Palette was awarded the Franchisee Satisfaction Award by Franchise Business Review; and in March 2013, Pinot's Palette became the only Paint and Sip franchise to be included on Entrepreneur Magazine's Top Franchise; the company was also the only Paint and Sip to receive an honorable mention in Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 List in January 2013.
Ceccanti says franchisees are attracted to Pinot's Palette in large part because of the company's proprietary technology and excellent customer service. In addition to an intensive, week-long training "boot camp" and ongoing support, franchisees have access to the Master Painting Library, an artist-rewarding proposition and product innovation channel for owners.
Pinot's Palette is now accepting applicants for a private SoCal Discovery Day on Saturday, October 27. During Discovery Day, potential franchisees have the opportunity to meet the company's co-founders, as well as current franchise owners.
