HOUSTON, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinot's Palette, a national Paint and Sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, announced today it signed several franchise agreements to open its first studios in the Northeast. The brand will bring its "Paint. Drink. Have Fun." concept to New York City, Montclair, N.J., and Boston, Mass., among other cities, starting with New Jersey's first location in July.
"Expanding to the Northeast has been a top priority for us since we began franchising Pinot's Palette in 2010," said Craig Ceccanti, chief executive officer, Pinot's Palette. "The Northeast is rich in culture, arts and entertainment, making cities in and around the region a prime opportunity for Pinot's Palette expansion."
At Pinot's Palette, guests sign up online to attend a two-hour or three-hour painting class where they are instructed by a local, trained artist on how to recreate the featured painting of the night. Pinot's Palette provides art supplies, plates and wine glasses, while guests enjoy snacks and cocktails. Franchisees have access to extensive painting libraries of artwork tested for all skill levels, as well as the ability to create their own paintings to respond to guests' changing taste in artwork and local trends in their respective communities.
The Montclair location is scheduled to open in July 2013, at 351 Bloomfield Ave. in Montclair, N.J. and will be the 23rd open location for Pinot's Palette nationwide. Additional Northeast locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan in New York City, N.Y., Westchester, N.Y., Stamford, Conn., and Boston, Mass. are expected to open in 2013.
