Make 2022 Your Year!

Pinot & Picasso Franchising

So, 2021 was just as average as 2020… Why not make 2022 extra special with a change to your career & lifestyle?!

Pinot & Picasso is continually looking for motivated & driven people to join our ever-growing Franchisee network! With over 50 studios in Australia and now operating in New Zealand, it is now a more exciting time than ever in the Pinot & Picasso world!

See what locations are available in both Australia & New Zealand below!

As you can see, we have so many great territories still available around the country! These Aussie communities would thrive with a P&P studio! Due to being sold out in NSW, we’ve seen many take on the challenge of running a studio interstate which has been met with success! Thanks to the digital nature of our business model, this is now more of a reality than a fantasy for business owners.

Take your business ownership to the next level by operating a studio in New Zealand! With just three studios currently, there are plenty of locations to make the most of this international opportunity! With a P&P representative on the ground in NZ, we’re prepared and primed to support your journey—if you dare to take it!

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: Kress & Dave Laguidi

Pinot & Picasso Franchising

Kress Laguidi was a proud and hard-working artist at Pinot & Picasso. Last year, she took off her P&P apron and put on her business woman cap and joined the Pinot & Picasso family as a Franchise Owner!

We chatted with Kress about what her experience as a Franchisee has been like since opening Pinot & Picasso South Coast! 

 

What convinced you to join the Pinot & Picasso as a Franchisee?

“I was working for the Pinot & Picasso Camden team as an artist for a year (since it’s opening in mid-2019) and I loved every minute of it. Everyone always had a good time, whether it was because of the painting or because of the sipping, it didn’t matter! If they had a bad day, that was left at the door and was always such a good vibe.

In 2020, after the COVID lockdown, so many new Pinot & Picasso studios started opening and Dave decided we wanted to be a part of the family.” 

 

What was the process like becoming a P&P Franchisee? 

“It was really quick for us. We had a phone meeting with James on the last day of August and by the end of October, we were trading.”

What’s been your favourite thing about Pinot & Picasso?
“The thing I love about Pinot & Picasso is that it is a big family – everyone from HQ, the Franchise owners, and even the staff hosting in the studios. Everyone wants to help everyone out as much as they can and are happy to share ideas. If there is a problem, there is always someone willing to give advice.”

 

How has your studio been received by your community?
“The South Coast loves having us down there. It is something different for them and something (cultural/entertainment) they don’t have to travel to the cities for. We also have a lot of city folk who are on a weekend escape or holiday who will come to a session.”

 

Since becoming a Franchise Owner with P&P, what benefits have you seen in life and business?
“Working with Pinot & Picasso is great because there is flexibility with work house. I have 2 small children so I can work early or late to make sure I have time in the day for the,. I am working mostly from our home office and when I am working the sessions with my staff doing pop-ups, we are usually by the beach or looking over rolling hills. It’s pretty hard work… wink wink!

 

If there was one reason to join P&P, what would it be?
“Pinot & Picasso is creative, fun and flexible. Most importantly, the team is growing and improving as the business is, so HQ has refined operations and expanded even since we started down the coast 8 months ago!”

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.”
