Looking Back at 2020

P&P 2020

It’s been a wild year here at Pinot & Picasso (as it’s been for most!), but we’re slowly winding down for the Christmas season giving well-needed breathing room to reflect on the year that was. It’d be an understatement to say that it’s been a landmark year.

2020 will go down in history for a number of reasons – the COVID-19 pandemic being the focus for many of us, the bushfires that devastated our beautiful country for another, but for the Pinot & Picasso team – it’s been one of growth and brand development. 

OUR BIG MOMENTS IN 2020

  • THE ART BOX – We pivoted through the lockdowns to bring a virtual Pinot & Picasso experience into our customers homes FREE of charge. We delivered these fun lessons through complimentary Facebook Live P&P sessions and reached over a quarter of a million people nationwide!

 

  • THE CREATIVE KIDS ART BOX – Through the success of the Art Box product, we launched the Creative Kids Art Box in November. This allowed NSW parents to claim a $100 Creative Kids Voucher and use it towards this great product. In the space of a month, we sold around 1700 boxes!

 

  • 23 BRAND NEW STUDIOS – We started 2020 with 12 studios across the country. Our studio numbers tripled throughout the year and we finish 2020 with 37 trading locations across NSW, QLD, VIC and the ACT! 

 

  • SOLD OUT IN NSW METRO – As new studios began to open, we sold out completely in the NSW Metro area. We reached agreements in the final available territories at the end of this year which is a massive achievement. We’re now turning our focus to some amazing interstate locations! 

 

On behalf of the Pinot & Picasso team, we’re incredibly grateful for your support this year. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and we’ll see you in 2021 for bigger and better things!

Franchising Myths Debunked!

Pinot & Picasso Camden Franchise opening

Pinot & Picasso is Australia’s #1 Paint and Sip experience. We provide entertainment, art and great times – combined into a wonderful, intimate and fun experience. We’ve got 25 locations around the country, and we’re looking for more Franchisees just like yourself to join our creative network.

There are plenty of myths surrounding franchising a business. We’re here to answer all your questions – no matter how strange they might be. The most common misconceptions are:

 

Myth #1 – There is no money in franchising.

This is completely untrue. The Pinot & Picasso business model allows our franchisees to make healthy weekly sales with some franchisors making back their full $100,000 investment in under 12 months. This business model is the real deal.

 

Myth #2 – Franchisors take Franchisees for a ride.

That is absolutely untrue for Pinot & Picasso. The greatest area in franchising is what might happen to a marketing fund. With Pinot & Picasso, there is no such thing. We have a set percentage royalty every week, in which franchise owners know exactly what they’re up for week by week.

 

Myth #3 – Franchising is set and forget.

At Pinot & Picasso, we’re hellbent on providing support from start to finish – from site procurement to marketing to the opening night – as well as working with Franchisees to devise marketing strategies to be implemented in your studio. From there on in, we’re here for the ride. 

In simpler terms – the better you guys do, the better we do. It’s in our best interest to ensure all our studios are performing to the best of their capabilities. 

 

Myth #4 – I can’t manage a business in an industry I’m not familiar with.

Funnily enough, our co-founders Aaron and James both don’t come from art backgrounds. This business was built to be able to cater to experienced business owners, novice business owners, and people coming from entirely different industries through the fool-proof model that we’ve created. We like to say in franchising is that you’re in business for yourself, but you’re not alone. 

 

Myth #5 – You’re guaranteed success. 

We’d love to tell you that you’re going to make a million dollars out of this business and that everything is going to be smooth sailing. The fact of the matter is that there are no guarantees in business. Everything is a risk.

What you do get with franchising is the support, the know-how, and the marketing experience to ensure that you give yourself the best shot at succeeding.
