SOLD OUT in NSW

P&P-SoldOut-NSW

First it was Sydney Metro, now it’s the entire state! Pinot & Picasso is officially SOLD OUT of locations in NSW. A feat that is unbelievable for our business that has only been franchising for 2 and a half years! 

This new milestone for Australia’s #1 Paint & Sip Franchise has seen our company grow both interstate and internationally. We’ve started securing more territories in Victoria, South Australia & Queensland, as our first studios in Tasmania and Western Australia prepare to open next month to a brand new audience.

Last week, our first New Zealand studio opened their doors and introduced our unique Pinot & Picasso experience to excited Kiwis! It really is the start of a wonderful journey!

Although NSW might be out of territories, we still have some amazing locations across the country and in NZ available! A big positive of this is that we’ve seen many new Franchisees jump on board and take on the opportunity of owning a studio in another location or state. 

Our HQ team is primed to help any Franchisee make their dream become a reality. At Pinot & Picasso, nothing is impossible and here is just a few reasons why we support anyone looking to own a studio from a distance:

We’re a digital, e-commerce based business!
Being an e-commerce platform, everything we do is managed online or within the digital space. Our website is manageable from everywhere, our advertising and social media spend is encouraged to be placed where we can see results, and all our lines of communication are cloud based. For an operator managing a business from distance, this is a dream.
 
Digital marketing is our jam!
 
We’re the first to admit that we aren’t artists, we’re marketers at heart. Building our business on a digital platform has always made us hyper aware that tracking sales is important. We know where every cent within our franchise business goes, and more importantly how much of that returns. With a strong relationship with our Digital Marketing Agency and years of experience/strategy within the digital space – we provide more and more opportunities for our Franchisee’s to make a healthy return.

Your Pinot & Picasso Life is managed from your pocket!
That’s right, we’ve even got our own app. From tracking attendees, refunds, to creating new sessions and processing payments for functions or large events – this app does it all. We like to ensure that Franchisee’s aren’t fish out of water when edits need to be made so we designed this thing for simplicity. The best part of it all? You can track your weekly sales as they come in.


We asked one of our Franchisees what it’s like operating a studio from a distance. Clinton from Pinot & Picasso Orange said:
“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 people 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.”

Franchisee Focus: Team Orange

Pinot & Picasso Orange

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.”

47 Studios in 24 Months!

Pinot & Picasso Franchising

Not too long ago, Pinot & Picasso celebrated two years since we started franchising. Now, we have opened 47 studios in just 24 months! The buck doesn’t just stop there – we’re on track to reaching 50 studios over the next couple of weeks!

The journey from our first studio to our 47th has been a whirlwind to say the least! Here’s what it looked like!

  • Our first franchise: Byron Bay

After the success of our OG studio in Penrith, we took Pinot & Picasso to one of the biggest tourist destinations in NSW – Byron Bay. The studio opened in February 2019 and it kickstarted our franchising journey. It only took a couple of months until the next franchise signed on. Our Byron Bay studio really started the domino effect here at Pinot & Picasso!

  • Going interstate

A big milestone we reached only three months into franchising was opening our first interstate studio. We headed up to the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland with our Southport territory. We now have 13 interstate studios operating in Queensland, Victoria & the ACT. Our first location in South Australia is launching next month. 

  • The post-COVID boom

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we had 13 studios up & running. By the end of 2020, we had a total of 35 locations across the country. That’s right – we had 22 franchises jump on board in the space of six months! SIX MONTHS! This level of growth has continued into 2021 with an additional 12 studios open for business. 

  • Sold out in Metro NSW

At the end of last year, we sold out in the metro area of NSW. This achievement has turned our attention to targeting more territories in QLD, VIC & SA. We’re also looking to dip our toes into the great states of Western Australia, Tasmania & the Northern Territory by the end of 2021. 

  • To 50 and beyond!

We are only THREE studios away from raising the bat for our half-century! To think this landmark will come in under three years of franchising is truly mind-blowing! We have many more exciting locations in the pipeline and cannot wait to announce them over the coming weeks.

Celebrating Two Years of Franchising

P&P Franchising

It’s been a wild ride since we’ve become a franchising business two years ago. We opened our second studio in Byron Bay in February 2019 and since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength. After a wonderful 24 months, we spent some time reflecting on our biggest achievements here at Pinot & Picasso.

  • Major growth in 24 months

Since opening in February 2019, we’ve sold to over 55 sold territories with 40 studios open for business. Our biggest growth came post-COVID outbreak – much to our surprise! We had a total of 12 studios operating in June 2020. This figure tripled in a six-month time frame and we finished 2020 with 36 studios trading nationwide. 

  • Expanding into five states

During these 24 months, we’ve locked ourselves in on becoming a national brand. We have almost sold out ALL locations in NSW. This success meant that launching interstate was less daunting knowing that we have a business model that works. We now have multiple studios in Queensland, Victoria and the ACT, with plans to open studios in South Australia and Western Australia. 

  • P&P goes international

The buck doesn’t just stop in Australia. Thanks to the enormous success and growth in 2020, the Pinot & Picasso brand is officially expanding into the international market. We’ve sold three territories across the Tasman already. We could not be more excited to bring the Pinot & Picasso experience to New Zealand. 

  • The Pinot & Picasso Art Box

The COVID-19 pandemic brought many unprecedented challenges to businesses. With studios closed due to lockdown, we decided to adapt with the times and released our very own Art Box. We utilised the Facebook Live and Zoom platforms respectively to run virtual sessions on weekends and give people some joy during a tough time. This has since expanded to the company running virtual functions across the country and even overseas. 

  • The Pinot App

We updated our business of the digital landscape and developed a Pinot & Picasso App purely for our Franchise Owners. The P&P App allows our franchisee’s to seamlessly manage their studio. From bookings to revenue, the app allows our franchisee’s to work on the run.

Studio Growth Soaring in 2021

P&P Franchising

We’re only eight weeks into the new year and we’ve got studios opening all across the country! 

We launched our 36th studio in the lovely town of Orange at the end of January. We’ve got our 37th and 38th studios, Wetherill Park and Surry Hills, opening their doors over the next two weekends. 

We’ll be looking to crack the big 4-0 next month with several studios coming very, very soon – including Canley Vale, Wagga Wagga, Dubbo, Noosa and Yarraville. 

It’s been super rewarding to see the Pinot & Picasso brand expand in 2020, and we’re already chuffed with the growth in 2021!

We still have plenty of high-value locations available for franchising. While NSW is sold out, there is plenty of opportunities to open a P&P studio interstate.
