Best mates Clinton, Adam and Daniel took a leap and decided to open a Pinot & Picasso studio in a popular rural destination – Orange! We have said countless times that the P&P business models gives potential Franchisees the opportunity to operate a studio from afar, and the Pinot & Picasso Orange team is a prime example of this!
Clinton chatted with us on behalf of the team to tell us what they have loved about their experience so far as Pinot & Picasso Franchise owners!
What convinced you to join the Pinot & Picasso as a Franchisee?
“We have always been looking to start a business or invest our money in something for our future. Pinot & Picasso had some appeal because of the market access it provided as a first-time investment compared to other franchise brands. The set-up looked affordable and straightforward, and we also had some mutual friend who already invested in the brand. They highly recommended the business model during our initial decision stages.”
What was the process like becoming a P&P Franchisee?
“The process was exceptionally smooth and straightforward. Whilst having business experience meant we needed less help getting our business off the ground and running, the Pinot HQ team were always ready and able to help when we needed their industry knowledge and expertise.”
What’s been your favourite thing about Pinot & Picasso?
“Having fun, hands down the most enjoyable business we have been a part of. Not only do we enjoy ourselves, but we also sell a great service that is second to none and the bottom line is, our customers have fun too! It really is a lifestyle that Pinot & Picasso sell to their franchisees.”
What’s it been like operating a studio from a distance?
“Challenging and rewarding all at the same time. The biggest challenge has been injecting ourselves into the local community and being accepted. This also meant long drives, time away from home and away from loved ones. However, we have met some amazing on this journey and made some good friends throughout our adopted community. On top of this, we have a sound understanding of our region and can quite confidently call it a second home.”
Since becoming a Franchise Owner with P&P, what benefits have you seen in life and business?
“We have seen an increase in our work life balance for the better. We have more time to do the things we love. Besides this, going to work for Pinot does not really feel like work when staff and customers all want to be there. After a few months of hard work setting up and pounding the pavement, the benefits have really paid off and the ability to now work from home is fantastic. We can see the opportunity to expand and pivot our entire lifestyle towards solely running Pinot & Picasso.”
If there was one reason to join P&P, what would it be?
“A new lifestyle.”
