What is a paint & sip studio?

Sounds self-explanatory, but there is more to Paint and Sip studios than meets the eye.

At Pinot & Picasso, our purpose-built, paint and sip studios see local artists guide customers through basic (or advanced) painting techniques on a standard size canvas in a hassle-free, collaborative setting. Simple.

Each session runs between 2-3 hours with popular music playing while the customer creates their own masterpiece with their friends, partner, mum or even just themselves. A customer can also book the studio for private parties like birthday parties, hen do’s, team building events and more. 

The added bonus of our Paint and Sip studios is that customers can purchase the finest wines, beer or non-alcoholic bevvies from our bar in the studio (please don’t dance on the bar). What goes well with drinks? Food, of course. Customers will be encouraged to bring their own snacks and nibbles to their session.

So how does this make us a leader in the art entertainment industry? It’s time to see for yourself.

How did we get here?

James Crowe and Aaron Carrasco opened the first Pinot & Picasso studio in their humble hometown of Penrith – less than 40 miles west of Sydney, Australia – in April 2018. Little did they know that they would have paint and sip studios across Australia, New Zealand and now the UK – all in just five years.

Since franchising in 2019, we’ve seen new and experienced business owners open paint and sip studios – best friends, business partners, artists and individuals who backed themselves to take the opportunity to climb, no wait … own the ladder.

A Paint and Sip class is a fun and entertaining experience that is a perfect combination of art and wine. It is led by a talented artist that guides customers through a chosen artwork step-by-step. A sip and paint class is for all abilities as no talent is necessary to have fun.

Each paint and sip class runs for three hours with popular music playing while the customer creates their own masterpiece with their friends, partner, mum or even just themselves. Customers are encouraged to unwind with their favourite alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink, purchased in the studio. They can bring their own snacks along too.

Pinot & Picasso Paint and Sip studios offer exceptional customer experiences including art classes, romantic date nights, girls night, art parties, team building functions, hen do’s and bridal showers, events for corporate clients, private parties, baby showers, fundraising events and so much more.

Pinot & Picasso are strategic innovators in the paint and sip market. With a youthful and executive team of experts, Pinot & Picasso continually pioneer trending creativity, provide you with multiple revenue streams to grow your business and sales and seek creating exceptional customer experiences. As a well-engineered brand and franchise system, Pinot & Picasso won’t settle for second best, and you shouldn’t either in your search for a franchise and small business opportunity.

We’re also a multi award winning company – just thought we’d drop that in there. 

Five (soon-to-be-favourite) years. 

In that time, (with Picasso’s average of 50,000 artworks) he would have painted 1,204 artworks. If you run 3 sessions every week, your studio will overtake that with 1,560 artworks. Pretty impressive. 

Head Office is a vibrant and dynamic company. We are dedicated to providing you unlimited access to operation guides and videos, while continually working to provide further information and training in all aspects of the business. We’ve got world-class support across web and digital content management, financial fundamentals, training materials, job training, marketing and creative teams, and operations – all a quick email away. We want to ensure you have a smooth franchisee experience.

Franchisees are responsible for marketing to their customers at an organic level. When it comes to paid marketing channels, you will have HQ Account Managers who you’ll book monthly strategy calls with to discuss maximising your studio and mobile territory online and unique national marketing capabilities.

You most certainly could open your own business. The facts however, don’t lie. 9 out of 10 businesses fail within the first year. We have a tried and tested business model and approach (80+ times now in Australia and New Zealand), with training materials provided to give you the greatest chance of success. Could you do it yourself? Sure, what’s the name? Could you do it as well, and maximise your ROI? Well yes, if you have 25 paint and sip studios experts with executive management experience working for you full-time, employed across marketing, business, accounting, HR, law, and customer relations. 

Ooof, it’s exhausting just talking about it. This is why many have chosen to open paint and sip studios with us.

Of course, but you will need to wait until we pass through the Stage 2 application to disclose full financials.

We just don’t kiss and tell after the first date, but you might get lucky further down the track.

Pinot & Picasso HQ have a 12% royalty fee, and this covers HQ support, full-time marketing specialists and the creative team to keep innovating! Unlike other franchises, we do not have a marketing fund. This means HQ will cover all top of funnel brand advertising on a nationwide scale, leaving you with a marketing package and budget that you can control within your territory.

Each studio experience in opening a studio is different with some things just out of our control, thanks to local regulations. The group average would be 10-12 weeks from signing contracts. 

Once you have a physical location, online marketing can start promoting the launch of your new business to your local community and begin selling tickets generating cash flow before doors open.

Absolutely not. Just like being a guest in our paint and sip studios, no talent necessary for running a Pinot & Picasso studio. You won’t be required to run a session either – the artist produced works will look elite.

Your studio is also an opportunity to scale up your operation by putting a team in place, like a studio manager. Many multisite Pinot & Picasso franchisees have built an encouraging and reliable team to make their studio a leader within their community.
