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 РOrange! 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.¬†

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.

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!
