Painting With a Twist Franchise Business Wows in 2018

The first and biggest paint and sip franchise business, Painting with a Twist, is nearing the end of an outstanding 2018, which included milestones in its fundraising efforts across the country and a major acquisition. Now, this painting and drinks brand is ready to repeat its success in 2019, with a strong growth plan and a newly expanded team in its corporate office.

Over the last year, this brand added Chief Marketing Officer Katherine LeBlanc, COO Nancy Bigley and CEO Joe Lewis. In October, the franchise brand announced its acquisition of Bottle & Bottega, a wine and art concept with 20 locations across nine states. This was the first merger in the DIY art industry and further serves to prove this leading company's strong presence in the sector.

In addition to these bold moves in 2018, this paint and sip company also:

  • Ranked number one in its category in Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 for the fifth year running
  • Held a system-wide celebration for the company’s 10 millionth painting
  • Reached $5 million in fundraising via the brand’s popular “Painting with a Purpose” initiative, which encourages franchisees to host fundraisers where up to half of the proceeds are donated to area nonprofits

The new CEO said that since the brand started, it has been focused on providing wonderful guest experiences while giving back to the area communities supporting it. According to Lewis, this year's many milestones are an accomplishment all its franchisees share, and they also help cement the brand as the top in its category.

Based in Louisiana and franchising since 2009, Painting with a Twist currently has more than 300 locations in 39 states and is offering franchise opportunities in many markets to expand its national footprint. The total initial investment for one of these franchise opportunities ranges from $89,300 to $188,300.
