Pinot’s Palette Named a 2018 Top Franchise by Franchise Business Review

Independent Survey Shows Franchisees Are Highly Satisfied with Pinot’s Palette Performance

(PRWEB) January 16, 2018 - Pinot’s Palette ®, a pioneer in the creative entertainment industry, is named to the list of top franchises for 2018 according to Franchise Business Review’s 13th annual ranking of the top 200 award-winning franchise opportunities.

Pinot’s Palette has put an artistic spin on traditional girls’ night out, date night and corporate events by creating a social experience that combines guests’ favorite cocktails and snacks with an opportunity to create their own masterpiece. Headquartered in Houston, Pinot’s Palette was co-founded in 2009 when Charles Willis opened his first paint and sip studio with his wife Beth, and friend-turned-business-partner Craig Ceccanti.

Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings and awards for franchise companies based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of the top 200 franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises.

Pinot’s Palette was among 307 franchise brands, representing over 28,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. Pinot’s Palette franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations and financial opportunity.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as a top franchise,” says Charles Willis, President and co-founder of Pinot’s Palette. “We are especially humbled knowing this award is a direct result of feedback from our franchisees.”

Following are key findings from Pinot’s Palette’s franchisee satisfaction benchmark report:

  • (4.0 out of 5.0) are satisfied with Pinot’s Palette training and support.
  • (4.0 out of 5.0) are satisfied with Pinot’s Palette franchise system.
  • (4.1 out of 5.0) are satisfied with Pinot’s Palette franchise leadership.
  • (4.2 out of 5.0) are satisfied with Pinot’s Palette core values.
  • (4.4 out of 5.0) are satisfied with the Pinot’s Palette franchisee community.

“There are thousands of successful franchise companies operating in North America, but many of those companies do not offer a solid investment opportunity for the actual franchise owners,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “As an independent research firm, we rate the franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees to help entrepreneurs when choosing which franchise to invest in. The companies on this year’s list are the top performing brands in the areas critical to their franchisees’ success.”
