Key Questions

Q) Why is technology an important part of my decision to open an art studio?

Pinot’s Palette technology elevates the customer experience to new heights, giving your painting studio a sustainable competitive advantage. The proprietary management software, PRMS, will help you manage the business day to day, meaning less time working on administrative tasks and more time devoted to strategically growing your business. Consider the following time-saving advantages:
  • Eliminate the need to track reservations through spreadsheets or other manual solutions
  • Spend marketing dollars more effectively through coupon, discount, and campaign tracking and management
  • Keep employees happy by giving them access to online tools, allowing artists to teach classes more smoothly and access their schedules remotely
  • Complete payroll with 2 clicks of your mouse from your couch
  • Maximize profits with preferred credit card rates and limitless merchant service options
  • Plan for future growth with easy to use business reporting tools and real time information
  • Inform your customers of their classes, birthday coupons and follow up information automatically
  • Reduce response time to customers in order to increase seats sold per class

With more advanced technology, your money, time, and customers experience is managed to perfection.

Q) What training will I receive?

During our initial Jump Start Training, a Development Manager will help you find the best location to start your business. Then you will embark on a week of intensive training, called Boot Camp, at our Headquarters in Houston, Texas. Here, you will learn the operational skills needed to exceed Pinot’s Palette’s excellent customer service expectations. Your opening artist staff will then be trained in your studio by a Pinot’s Palette experienced artist trainer.

Q) How long will it take to open a franchise?

How fast do you want to open? We have opened stores in 8 weeks and others in 6 months. There is a formula that we teach you over our training courses and we assist you during the entire opening process. Our entertainment franchise opportunities are flexible to your time schedule so give us a call and let us know what works for you.

Q) How do I choose a location and will Pinot’s Palette® help in site selection?

Absolutely! Our Development Manager will be with you every step of the way to ensure your studio is not only located in the right area but also that it is competitively priced.

Q) Does Pinot’s Palette® require its franchises to be owner-operated?

Pinot’s Palette® allows you to adjust the work/life balance to your individual needs.

Q) Can I convert an existing paint & sip studio into a Pinot’s Palette®?

Yes. But we require all new equipment and the studio will need to be redone to look exactly like a Pinot’s Palette®. Contact us for more information.

Q) How much money can I make owning a Pinot’s Palette®?

Since the actual results of individual franchises are based on factors that are not within the control of Pinot’s Palette, we do not provide estimates of profits or revenues. However, after consulting with a Pinot’s Palette Franchise Development Representative and reviewing the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), you will have the opportunity to contact our existing franchisees regarding their experiences.

Q) Can I open multiple studios?

Yes, in fact our technology allows you to run as many stores as you like with many synergies.

Q) Does Pinot’s Palette offer financing?

At this time, we do not. Contact your financial advisor or banker to determine which financial arrangements will be best for your specific circumstances.

Q) Does Pinot’s Palette provide marketing support and materials?

Definitely. We'll be sure to get you a variety of materials and resources to help ensure your marketing success. It is in everyone’s best interest to help you maintain and enhance the Pinot’s Palette brand.

Q) How do I get started?

The first step is to fill out the inquiry. A Development Manager will be in contact with you shortly to discuss this fulfilling entertainment franchise opportunity.
