1837 - Trapper Peter LaBeck killed by grizzly bear at El Tejon [story]


PINOT'S PALETTE LOGOPinot’s Palette, a national Paint and Sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, is pleased to continue its expansion into the West Coast market.  The company recently announced plans for two new studios in California, bringing the total number of studios in the state to four.  Pinot’s Palette President Charles Willis says studios in Sacramento and Tustin will open sometime next year.

“This is a very exciting time for Pinot’s Palette,” said Willis.  “We just returned from the West Coast Franchise Expo in Anaheim, California – and we are very encouraged about our opportunities in the California market.”

The Expo, which took place October 24-26, gave Pinot’s Palette an opportunity to connect with potential West Coast franchise partners.  After the Expo, Pinot’s hosted a private SoCal Discovery Day on October 27.  During SoCal Discovery Day, potential franchisees had the opportunity to meet the company’s co-founders and network with current franchise owners.

SoCal Discovery Day attendees included Delora and Louis Marran, who signed the paperwork to become the newest Pinot’s Palette franchise owners on October 28.  Their Sacramento studio is slated to open in late 2014. California franchisees Scott and Christine Lockerd will open their Tustin-area studio in early 2014.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Marrans and the Lockerds to the Pinot’s Palette family,” said Craig Ceccanti, CEO, who added that Pinot’s Palette is in active conversations with partners for locations in the San Diego market. The company’s first-ever California studio opened in Danville this summer, and a second California location is slated to open in Valencia later this month.

Pinot’s Palette is currently the fastest-growing Paint and Sip brand in the country.  In 2013, the company has added over 28 new locations to its growing list of partner studios.  Many of those locations, Ceccanti notes, have been in the west.

“In addition expanding our presence in California, we are also happy to add Arizona, Nevada, and Washington to our growing list of locations throughout the country,” he says.  “Our Phoenix, Arizona, studio opened in fall of 2013, and our new studios in Spokane, Washington, and Las Vegas, Nevada, will open next year.”

The company’s West Coast expansion has been a positive conclusion to what has turned out to be a very good year.  In early 2013, Pinot’s Palette won the Franchise Business Review’s Franchisee Satisfaction Award.  In addition, the company became the only Paint and Sip franchise to be included on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Franchise list and the only Paint and Sip to receive an honorable mention in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 List.
