HOUSTON - April 17, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Pinot's Palette, a national Paint and Sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, has kicked off 2013 by earning several commendations for its continued growth and success.
In March 2013, Pinot's Palette became the only Paint and Sip franchise included on Entrepreneur Magazine's Top New Franchises list. All companies included on the list were ranked according to financial strength, growth rate, and size, as well as other factors such as startup costs and percentage of terminations.
Company President Charles Willis notes that this is not the first time the company has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine.
"In January of this year, Pinot's Palette became the only Paint and Sip to receive an honorable mention on Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 list," Willis says. "It's very exciting to receive so much recognition from such an influential publication."
In addition to earning accolades from Entrepreneur Magazine, Pinot's Palette also won Franchise Business Review's Franchisee Satisfaction Award. The award, which was given out in February 2013, ranks companies solely on franchisee feedback. Pinot's Palette was ranked 11th on Franchise Business Review's list of Top 50 Franchises: Under 50 Locations.
Company CEO Craig Ceccanti says franchisee support is a key part of the Pinot's Palette business model.
"We have developed a wide variety of resources to help our franchisees every step of the way," Ceccanti says. "In fact, many of our franchisees tell us that they chose Pinot's Palette over other Paint and Sip franchises because we are the only one to offer such extensive training and support."
In addition to offering an intensive, week-long training "boot camp", the Pinot's Palette team helps new franchisees scout studio locations, negotiate leases, and build custom marketing plans based on local strategies. Additionally, all Pinot's Palette franchisees have access to the Pinot Technology Suite (PTS), a proprietary software system that streamlines all aspects of studio management.
"Our system makes it easier for franchisees to maintain an optimal work-life balance," Ceccanti says. "The PTS system helps them maximize sales, from point-of-sale transactions and reservation management to each location's website page."
