Bottle & Bottega Finalizes Franchise Agreement with Local Entrepreneur to Open San Antonio’s First Location

Jamelle Garner to Help San Antonio Residents Uncork their Inner Artist by Launching Innovative Art and Wine Concept

November 02, 2016 // // SAN ANTONIO – Get ready, San Antonio. Bottle & Bottega is about to paint the town red.

The nation’s premier art and wine studio announced today that it has signed an agreement with local entrepreneur Jamelle Garner to open the first Bottle & Bottega in the San Antonio area. The concept will launch in early 2017 with “Pop Up” events and a chic and sophisticated studio to follow in 2018.

"This concept is exactly what San Antonio needs,” explains Garner, who brings a strong background in journalism, public relations and experience as a public affairs officer in the U.S. Army. "San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the U.S. and the upscale art studio that Bottle & Bottega offers is a perfect fit for the area.”

The San Antonio location will be Bottle & Bottega’s 24th in the United States, hosting events throughout San Antonio including the downtown area, Boerne, Schertz, New Braunfels, Cibolo and Universal City.

Bringing out the creative side in all of us regardless of skill or practice, Bottle & Bottega is one part artistic adventure and one part cocktail party. Through a blend of hands-on art sessions, on-site professional instruction and, of course, a glass of wine, Bottle & Bottega helps guests create a masterpiece that they can be proud of taking home.

Initially, Garner will host public and private paint and wine events in homes, restaurants, offices, community venues and other locations throughout San Antonio. Once the studio is up and running, Garner will complement her on-site art parties with in-studio events. She is already scouting studio locations for her permanent home.

“Jamelle is the ideal candidate that we’ve been looking for in the San Antonio area,” said Nancy Bigley, the CEO of Chicago-based Bottle & Bottega. “Her military experience and background in journalism and public relations will ensure she hits the ground running. We are so excited to watch her business grow!”

Bottle & Bottega rose to prominence in March of 2009 with a Chicago-based mobile art studio. Founder Stephanie King-Myers developed the concept during an impromptu and inspired girls night out where she convinced a friend that painting on a canvas could be done effortlessly with the right inspiration...a glass of wine and the perfect social setting. The city and all of Chicagoland openly embraced the unique concept and its flagship studio opened a couple years later.

In 2011, Bigley, a franchise industry executive with years of success at companies such as Dunkin’ Brands, joined as CEO and co-owner of Bottle & Bottega, signaling the launch of the brand’s strategic franchise growth initiative.

Today, King-Myers, who holds the position of Founder and Creative Director, and CEO Bigley are guiding the brand’s franchise growth, leading recent openings in Cleveland, OH, Orlando, FL and the Chicago suburbs.
