The paint and wine franchise industry is a niche of the entertainment franchise category. It offers consumers a fun night out that combines drinking with guided painting – or in some cases, other arts and crafts. The paint and sip business model competes with other “girls’ night out” establishments, including wine bars and live entertainment venues, as well as date night options such as dinner and a movie. Other competitors include pottery studios and companies that offer instructional, create-your-own-product concepts, like gourmet meal preparation. For the consumer, the price point associated with each of these activities or services is often higher than a night out at a paint and sip business like Pinot’s Palette.
Paint and Wine Franchise Growth
The paint and sip concept gained its traction as a night-out destination in the mid-2000s and maintains its popularity as we head into the 2020s. Advancements include the addition of in-studio wine or cocktail bars, diversification of products offered, classes taught under blacklight, portrait classes that allow guests to customize a painting of a pet or person, classes designed for audiences outside of the girls’ night out crowd, and overall improvement in the quality of paintings and quality of instruction.
