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!

Hallelujah! Restrictions have eased!

P&P South Coast
With the latest announcement from the NSW government, we can officially welcome MORE people into our Pinot & Picasso studios!

Christmas has come well and truly early for our P&P tribe. Our NSW studios have updated their capacity for their sessions – this means more tickets available to purchase for the silly season!

From the 1st December, we can seat one person per 2-square-metres in our NSW studios. 

 

We will still be practicing social distancing in our studios to ensure you all feel secure and safe as you paint and sip all night long – with all other COVID safety measures like checking in and sanitising remaining in place at all studios.

 

It is absolutely the most wonderful time of the year and what could be a more perfect way to honour this amazing news than spending a night with Pinot & Picasso? Celebrate safely and release your inner Picasso with us!

10 GRAND Studio Openings in November

Pinot & Picasso November

The Pinot & Picasso train keeps on rolling! We’ve had a few HUGE weeks across the brand for the month of November. We’ve been lucky enough to open 10 studios in some great new locations with some awesome operators!

These studios bring our total active locations to 35 in 2020. Our 10 studios that opened this month include:

With key territories in QLD, VIC and SA still very much available – we’re in the perfect place to kick start 2021 for families and individuals across the country.

SOLD OUT in Sydney Metro

What a wild year it’s been here at Pinot & Picasso! From pandemic-proofing our businesses with our widely successful ArtBox program, to running live sessions via Facebook and even branching into Virtual Paint and Sip sessions – it’s been one for the books.

But as we wind down (I mean, figuratively speaking) for Christmas 2020, we’re absolutely stoked to announce that Pinot & Picasso is now SOLD OUT completely throughout the Sydney Metro area. 

P&P Sold Out NSW Metro

This week, we reached agreements for the Ashfield, Cabramatta and Sydney CBD territories which closes out our current opportunities in the greater Sydney area and taking our total sold locations to 46 territories nationwide.

With only Dubbo & Tamworth left on the roster for NSW, we’re still on the look for reliable and hard-working Franchisee’s to purchase these territories and growing the brand in these iconic Australian rural locations. 

Pinot & Picasso is shaping up for a bigger 2021 and with plenty more people climbing onboard the brand and investing in what’s proving to be an extremely sturdy lifestyle business – it’s becoming more apparent that our studios can be run at arms length.
