With the nearest studio over 100 miles away in South Hill, Washington, Pinot's Palette plans to bring the nation’s top paint and sip experience to Oregon with four new studio openings in Portland and an additional four studios throughout the state.
“Our owners across the country continually tell us what a joy it is for them to share a social and artistic experience with their local community. And Portland, which continues to be a hub for entrepreneurship, is an ideal next destination to expand Pinot’s Palette,” said Charles Willis, co-founder and president of Pinot’s Palette. “The city provides the perfect upscale demographics to broaden our network and reach growing demand from guests who want a fun night out with the leader in the paint and sip industry.”
