Painting with a Twist Adds Franchise Business CDO
Paint and sip franchise business Painting with a Twist has just added a new Chief Development Officer as part of its executive leadership team expansion. Richard Leveille, the brand's new CDO, is an industry veteran who has served in executive roles for other major brands, helping one chain grow from one store to over 600 during his time there.
Brand CEO Joe Lewis noted Leveille has more than two decades in the franchise industry under his belt and extensive knowledge on national brand expansion. Lewis worked with Leveille previously and is confident the new CDO will help both franchisees and the company overall.
Coming in at the top of its category on Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 for the last six years and named as the fourth-best low-investment franchise opportunity by Forbes, this paint and sip brand has over 300 studios across 39 states. In his new CDO role, Leveille is tasked with implementing new campaigns and strategies to continue driving the brand's national footprint.
According to Leveille, Painting with a Twist's values of community service, charity, social engagement and fun resonate with his own. As the company continues to grow, Leveille looks forward to ensuring its status as an industry leader is maintained and helping the brand expand into new markets so more guests have the chance to try the experience.
At this company's studios nationwide, guests come together to enjoy a social experience with friends, the arts and more. The company's charity initiative, Painting with a Purpose, raises funds for area charities using monthly events at all locations. The charitable arm just reached $5 million in donations this year.
Painting with a Twist, based in Louisiana, is now the top franchise opportunity in its category, and guests have created over 10 million paintings at its locations since it started franchising back in 2009. The total initial investment with this growing brand ranges from $89,300 to $188,300.
