July 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – Wine & Design, the leading paint and sip franchise that provides chic, upbeat spaces for memories and masterpieces, is opening its newest location in Myrtle Beach’s Coventry Crossing. Kicking off the celebration on Friday, July 22, 2016, Wine & Design will provide five full days of festivities including themed parties, discounted classes, giveaways and other special offers.
Studio owners Bailey Turner and Chris Wilkinson are bringing their artistry and talent to their hometown. Turner became involved with Wine & Design while teaching classes at the North Myrtle Beach location. Working as an artist and discovering the joy and satisfaction of working with Wine & Design, Turner decided to open her own location. Combining her fine art expertise and her partner Wilkinson’s business experience, this duo aims to bring together friends, families and the local community for days and nights of artful fun.
“Whatever your age or experience level, Wine & Design brings people together for an afternoon or evening of painting, food and fun. It’s such a great concept and definitely a business with staying power,” said Turner, studio co-owner. “It’s a dream come true to have a studio of my own and also be able to provide local artists, like myself, with great job opportunities.”
Partner Wilkinson returns to South Carolina after working in the financial industry in Chicago. Leaving his longtime career in the Windy City as a broker, Wilkinson brings his savvy business skills to help run the studio and drive growth.
“We were always interested in starting our own business, but what really sold us is the strong support from the Wine & Design corporate team,” said Wilkinson. “They guided and supported us through every step. Becoming a franchisee with Wine & Design was too good of an opportunity to pass up.”
With more than 70 locations across the country, Wine & Design is committed to providing memorable and lasting experiences. Believing that chic, sophisticated experiences shouldn’t always come at a high price, Wine & Design is affordable without sacrificing what makes it special.
Wine & Design’s Myrtle Beach studio is located at 1620 Farrow Parkway, Suite A4, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.

Wine & Design provides “memories and a masterpiece” in just two hours. Painting sessions are led by a local artist who provides step-by-step instructions to first-time painters, aspiring artists, or self-proclaimed pros that result in an individualized work of art. Wine & Design accepts general reservations for nightly painting classes, and we offer programs through our five lines of business: Private Parties offer a creative twist for showers, supper clubs and reunions, just to name a few; Art Buzz Kids programs include children’s classes, summer camps and ‘Parent and Me’ programs; Design On Wheels brings the painting party to your home, office or event venue; Team Building packages merge art, teamwork and fun for your business or organization; and Paint it Forward programs are available each month with a portion of the proceeds going to a local charity. For more information on our programs, or to schedule an event or class, please visit www.wineanddesign.com. Wine & Design is headquartered in Raleigh, N.C. and has 70 studios nationwide.
