Pinot's Palette Franchisees to Open New Studio in Charlotte

Leading Paint & Sip Studio to Open in South End

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) December 31, 2013 - Pinot's Palette, a national Paint and Sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, announced today it will open a studio in Charlotte in January 2014. The new studio, located at 2000 South Blvd #250, is scheduled to open January 18, 2014 and will be the latest studio launch for Pinot's Palette as the company expands nationwide.

Franchisees Liz and Sandy Fleming, Oklahoma natives and mother & daughter, will open the new location in the city's South End at Atherton Mill. The studio will not only be BYOB but will also feature a bar where customers can purchase wine, beer, or soda.

"We expect Charlotte to be a very successful market for Pinot's Palette. The feedback from the local community has been incredibly positive and we're excited to invest in this community," said Craig Ceccanti, chief executive officer, Pinot's Palette.

Since its inception in 2009, the Pinot's Palette mission has been to bring fine art to the masses in a fun way. 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.

"Charlotte is really embracing the arts right now and people are ready for a new way to engage. Customers are excited to attend our classes and extend their imaginations while having a good time with family and friends," Fleming said. "I look forward to the opening of our studio, so guests in the Charlotte community can 'Paint. Drink. Have Fun.' — our motto!"

Pinot's Palette is poised to expand in cities throughout the country and recently signed a franchise agreement for the brand's first West Coast studio in San Francisco. Pinot's Palette currently has locations throughout the Greater Houston Area, as well as in Atlanta, Ga., San Antonio, Texas; Chicago, Ill., Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla., Fort Collins, Colo., Louisville, Ky., Lafayette, La., Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo., and Allen, Texas.

"We are looking for professionals with strong community ties and a passion for creating memorable experiences to help grow the company into new markets," said Charles Willis, president of Pinot's Palette. "Our proven systems and extensive corporate support differentiate us from our competitors and make us an ideal franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to bring a strong Paint and Sip concept to their city."

In addition to pre-opening, training, and ongoing support, franchisees are equipped with Pinot Technology Suite (PTS), an automated communication system designed to streamline administrative tasks. The proprietary PTS system has evolved to be the hub of studio management, integrating all aspects of the business from point of sale transactions, tracking reservations, artist scheduling, payroll and more. Easy-to-use business reporting tools and real-time guest information are readily available at the fingertips of franchisees and employees, allowing the business to run more efficiently.

Pinot's Palette offers both single and multi-unit development opportunities around the country. Interested parties can contact the corporate office for more information at Franchise(at)PinotsPalette(dot)com or by visiting http://www.pinotspalette.com/Franchise.
