From the Princeton Patch. 

Pinot’s Palette is coming to Princeton.

The fast-growing paint and sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine is opening its 100th franchise nationwide and ninth in New Jersey.

Kathleen Walters and Michael Siman will open the Princeton studio.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kathleen and Michael to the Pinot’s Palette family,” Craig Ceccanti, CEO and co-founder of Pinot’s Palette, said. “The Princeton studio represents a major milestone for our company and we look forward to continuing our rapid, sustainable growth well into 2015.”

Pinot’s Palette is part of the paint and sip movement, which combines art and wine with meeting new people and bonding with friends.

Trained local artists lead participants through a featured painting, step-by-step.

No experience is needed and art supplies are included.

Pinot’s Palette opened 40 locations last year, including in 14 new states, bringing its total to 31 states. It aims to increase its presence by 65 percent this year.

Ceccanti said Pinot’s Palette’s recent collection of national awards has helped build this growth.

The honors include: Franchise Business Review Top 50 Satisfaction Award (#1 in category), Entrepreneur 500 List Ranked, Entrepreneur Fastest-Growing Franchise List (#1 in Category), Entrepreneur Top-New Franchise List, and Entrepreneur Top Service Franchise List.

“When you have recognition from respected, national publications and 100 locations across the country, you’re officially a national brand,” Ceccanti said. “When (company president) Charles Willis and I started Pinot’s Palette five years ago, our goal was to make the company a household name across the country. Hitting the 100-location mark represents the realization of that goal.”
