- Low annualized cost.
- Fair royalty rate.
- Protected territory.
- Established franchisee advisory council.
- Low turnover rate.
- High growth.
- Disclosed expense data.
Pinot’s Palette is honored to be a Made the Grade Certified Franchise. Co-founder and CEO Craig Ceccanti credits the whole Pinot’s Palette system for the success: “Our outstanding franchisees work extremely hard to represent the premium paint and sip experience, and we have a great team to support them behind the scenes.”
Jeff Lefler, CEO of Franchise Grade, summarized Pinot’s Palette’s grade: “With net growth of 103 locations and limited turnover between 2013 and 2016, we feel this is a healthy franchise opportunity for 2017.”
