What does Paint Pinot do?

Paint Pinot have taken the paint and sip concept to the next level. Instead of holding complicated events where everyone comes along loaded down with their own food and drinks, Paint Pinot treats its customers to a fully functional Art Wine Bar. Clients can create a premium piece of art and enjoy beautiful food and drink options that are delicious and simple for you, the Franchise Partner, to prepare.

Why is this difference important?

Because it provides you with multiple income streams! You don’t just bring in revenue from event ticket sales. You can also benefit from food and beverage sales. Our guests enjoy a full-service Art Wine Bar experience unlike any others in Australia. For our Franchise Partners, this creates an opportunity to build a vibrant, profitable business where the sky is the limit.

There’s such a feel-good factor to running a Paint Pinot event franchise

Frequently asked questions

How much time do I have to devote to my Paint Pinot Franchise?

As they say – ‘The more effort you put in, the greater your chances of success’

But seriously, your franchise will take time to set up – it will be a full time job for the first 3 months at least. Once you’re up and running and let’s say – you only want to run events Friday night, Saturday and Sunday! Then, that is your choice.

We recommend that you are at every event, however, once you have competent staff you should be able to pop in once in a while and just check that everything is running smoothly. If you replace yourself as a staff member, then of course there will be more profit for you. Should you wish to open your Café other times, as a wine bar or Café then that is entirely up to you.

How do I know if I’m am suited to become a Paint Pinot Franchisee?

To become an awesome Paint Pinot Franchisee:

You will need to commit quite a bit of time initially to get everything set up. You will need a lease, a liquor license, courses such as your RSA and food supervisors certificate.

No! You do not need to be an artist, you can hire great artists to do that job. However, if you can paint, fantastic! Great asset to have.

You certainly don’t need a degree in business to run a franchise because when you sign on as a Franchise Partner, we give you extensive training on running the business. You are given the policies and procedures needed to run the franchise, and with our continuous support, you will always feel loved.
  • Investing in a franchise is a lower risk than investing in a start-up. When you invest in a franchise, you’re investing in a tried and tested business model. All the costly and nerve-wracking trial and error work has been done.
  • You have the awesome presence and support of an established business behind you.
  • Being part of a franchise gives you a head start in the market because the franchise has a recognised reputation and an established brand that clients already know, like and trust.
  • Loans are generally easier to secure for a franchise business than they are to start an independent business. You don’t need to be scared of your bank manager!
  • It is often much more cost-effective to buy a franchise than it would be to set up a new business of the same type, ultimately saving you money.
