Pinot’s Palette to Participate in International Franchise ExpoPinot's Palette
Three-Day Event to Include Panel Discussions and Exclusive, Off-Site “Discovery Day” for Potential Franchisees.
Franchisors and franchisees from Pinot’s Palette will be among hundreds of entrepreneurs and business owners who will convene at the International Franchise Expo (IFE) at the Javits Center in New York City from June 18-20.
The IFE is the largest franchise expo in the country, and is the perfect opportunity for proven franchisors to meet with potential franchisees to discuss all aspects of industry. Pinot’s Palette will be in attendance at booth #840, and headquarters members will be available to answer questions about the first and only international paint and sip franchise concept.
The three-day IFE Expo offers potential franchisees the opportunity to get the necessary help in deciding if franchising is the right decision, gathering all pertinent information, and getting advice on a wide range of financial options directly from experts.
The event will also include a panel discussion, titled “The Franchisor-Franchisee Relationship: Striking the Perfect Balance.” Panel members include Pinot’s Palette Co-Founder and President, Charles Willis, CFE, as well as Pinot’s Palette franchisee Chris Harvey.
The discussion will cover all aspects of how franchisors can support franchisees, including real estate, food sourcing, construction, and marketing. The discussion is free for IFE attendees. Use promo code: PINOTSEB.
Charles Willis says the discussion highlights many of the most important keys Pinot’s Palette’s success: The company-wide focus on open, ongoing communication with franchisees. To help franchisees succeed and grow their businesses, the company routinely seeks franchisees’ opinions and feedback on everything from studio events to class schedules to day-to-day operations.
IFE attendees interested in getting an even closer look at Pinot’s Palette can attend an exclusive, invitation-only “Discovery Day” on Sunday, June 21 in Ridgewood, New Jersey. The location is one of two studios owned by Chris and Emma Harvey. The Harveys – who are former Pinot’s Palette artists – have been featured in Entrepreneur magazine and the New Jersey Record for their success with Pinot’s Palette. The Ridgewood Discovery Day session includes an exclusive informational session with Charles Willis. Attendees will learn more about the company’s business model and what it’s like to be a franchisee.
Charles Willis says he is looking forward to the expo – and to meeting new, qualified potential franchisees. “Some of our most successful studios have come from attendees that we met at the IFE Expo,” he said. “This is an incredible time for people who might be interested in purchasing a franchise to find out everything they need to know about joining our company. Pinot’s Palette is not your typical franchise concept, and the IFE Expo gives us the opportunity to showcase everything have to offer as a business.”
