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.
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.
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.
