Wine & Design Of Wilmington Set To Reopen Its Location After Stunning Renovation

Award-Winning Paint And Sip Franchise Celebrates Wilmington Studio’s Makeover With Five Days of Fun

July 06, 2016 // // Wilmington, NC – Wine & Design, the leading paint and sip franchise that provides a chic and upbeat space for painting classes of all ages and experience levels, announces the highly anticipated re-opening of its Wilmington location. Kicking off the celebration on Saturday, July 9th, Wine & Design is providing five full days of festivities including themed parties, discounted classes, giveaways and other special offers.

Studio owners, Tom and Kathleen Barber, are sharing their artistry and talent with the Wilmington community. Prior multi-unit franchise owners of a notable hair salon and recent retirees, it took them one paint and sip class at a nearby winery for the couple to discover a new passion for what they believe to be a very unique business concept.

“Having experience as franchisees, we knew this would be a business with staying power,” says Tom Barber, studio co-owner. “Of course, the strong support of the corporate team is what really got us going. This is a franchise that offers owners a chance to spend time in a fantastic work environment with a real party atmosphere.”

Wine & Design has over 68 locations nationwide and is committed to providing memorable and lasting experiences. Believing that chic and sophistication shouldn’t always come at a high price point, Wine & Design is affordable without sacrificing what makes it special.

“With Tom and Kathleen’s expertise and unmatched energy and enthusiasm, we’re ecstatic to see the reopening of the Wilmington location after months of renovation,” say Harriet Mills, CEO and Founder of Wine & Design. “Not only does the studio have wonderful visibility and high density traffic but the renew of the studio is incredible! The gorgeous signature stained glass mosaic is definitely a showstopper.”

Wine & Design of Wilmington is located at 1319 Military Cutoff Road Suite JJ. For more information or to reserve a space for the upcoming Grand Reopening celebration, please call (910) 679-4750, email or visit
