Background Information

Pinot’s Palette® first opened for business on May 6, 2009 in Houston, Texas. As a new concept, initial expectations were to host classes three nights per week. As word of mouth spread, however, so did Pinot’s Palette. New locations quickly opened throughout Houston and by 2010, Pinot’s Palette was offering franchises.

Since opening its doors to franchising, Pinot’s Palette has become the fastest growing paint and sip franchise in America and the first to expand internationally, with more than 150 studios across 34 states and Canada, and new locations opening monthly.

A pioneer of the emerging paint and sip entertainment category 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.

Pinot’s Palette provides all the tools needed, including professional art instruction, to recreate a selection chosen from the extensive Pinot’s Palette library of artwork. Although most Pinot’s Palette locations are BYOB, many of the studios have built-in bars and some locations also offer mobile studio options.

In addition, with technology being a key influencer in today’s customer decision making, Pinot’s Palette has developed the most advanced management system in the industry. The proprietary software allows customers to enjoy real-time information regarding their reservation. In addition, artists are able to access the system to retrieve their class schedules and painting rewards while franchise owners enjoy the ease of coupon development, business reporting, global gift certificates, and low cost merchant services.
