On behalf of Pinot & Picasso HQ, franchisees, and staff, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We hope you have a fun, safe and entertaining holiday period reconnecting with loved ones and friends!
Thank you for your ongoing and continued support over what has been a topsy-turvy year – to say the least! We know our franchisees are extremely grateful for your loyalty and encouragement throughout the year, especially during lockdown periods.
We’re still wrapping our heads around the fact that it’s the end of 2021, so we’re looking back at the year and how YOU made it unforgettable for us!
MILESTONES, MILESTONES, MILESTONES!
We started 2021 with 35 studios across four states and territories in Australia. We finish 2021 with 65 studios across Australia and New Zealand – that’s opening almost 3 studios a month!
Thanks to your popular demand, we opened studios in three new states this year – South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia, to be exact! We’re looking forward to bringing Pinot & Picasso to more exciting territories in 2022!
FROM AN AUSSIE COMPANY TO AN INTERNATIONAL FRANCHISE
We really don’t talk about New Zealand at all, do we? We expanded our #1 Paint & Sip experience across the Tasman and opened 4 studios this year! With more in the pipeline, we’re super excited to see the studio growth in NZ in 2022.
Thanks to your support in Australia, this led to the big leap into NZ – so give yourselves a pat on the back!
COVID STRIKES BACK... BUT SO DID WE!
Our biggest challenge (understatement!) was the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in both Australia and New Zealand. This forced many of our studios to close for an extended period of time throughout the year.
We relaunched the Pinot & Picasso Art Box and Virtual Functions to help those in lockdown keep positive, celebrate milestones, and entertain all ages! It was another raging success with exclusive On-Demand sessions of fan favourite artworks and kids classics.
We were stoked to give you something to enjoy during this period as you have given us so much over these last three years! We will admit, as nice as it was to see your at-home artworks, it’s been unbelievable to be back in the studio with you all!
LAUNCH OF PINOT POINTS
Speaking of giving back, we launched our loyalty program Pinot Points this year! Pinot Points is all about enhancing our customers’ experience with our brand. Customers get points for their birthday, whenever they purchase a ticket or product, and when they sign-up!
