HOUSTON – February 4th, 2014– Pinot’s Palette, a national Paint and Sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, announced today it will open a studio in Des Moines this month. The new studio, located at 900 42nd St., is scheduled to open February 28th and will be the latest studio launch for Pinot’s Palette as the company expands nationwide.

Franchisee Erin Baker, a Des Moines native, will open the new location in the city’s Roosevelt Shopping Center.

“We expect Des Moines to be a very successful market for Pinot’s Palette. The feedback from the local community has been incredibly positive and we’re excited to invest in this community,” said Craig Ceccanti, chief executive officer, Pinot’s Palette.

Since its inception in 2009, the Pinot’s Palette mission has been to bring fine art to the masses in a fun way. Guests sign up online to attend a two-hour or three-hour painting class where they are instructed by a local, trained artist on how to recreate the featured painting of the night. Pinot’s Palette provides art supplies, plates and wine glasses, while guests enjoy snacks and cocktails. Franchisees have access to extensive painting libraries of artwork tested for all skill levels, as well as the ability to create their own paintings to respond to guests’ changing taste in artwork and local trends in their respective communities.

“Des Moines is really embracing the arts right now and people are ready for a new way to engage. Customers are excited to attend our classes and extend their imaginations while having a good time with family and friends,” Baker said. “I look forward to the opening of my studio, so guests in the Des Moines community can ‘Paint. Drink. Have Fun.’ — our motto!”

Pinot’s Palette continues to expand to new cities throughout the country and currently has over 60 locations nationwide.

“We are looking for professionals with strong community ties and a passion for creating memorable experiences to help grow the company into new markets,” said Charles Willis, president of Pinot’s Palette. “Our proven systems and extensive corporate support differentiate us from our competitors and make us an ideal franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to bring a strong Paint and Sip concept to their city.”
