Pinot's Palette Franchise

In-studio painting classes

Pinot’s Palette (formerly Pinot & Picasso) opened for business on May 6, 2009. Being a new concept to Houston, we started small, with the hopes of having class three nights a week. Before long, word spread, and we now have Pinot's Palette as a pioneer of the paint and sip experience - a revolutionary way to enjoy art and wine, meet new people and bond with friends. With more than 100 locations across 32 states and Canada, and new locations popping up monthly, Pinot's Palette is the world's fastest growing paint and sip franchise.
Guests enjoy a no-experience-required art class "all supplies included" directed by trained, local artists, who guide guests step-by-step through a featured painting. The Pinot's Palette culture is the engine for the company's long term success. By focusing on innovation, customer excellence, and providing a fun, entertaining atmosphere, Pinot's Palette is well-equipped to meet customer demand in today's marketplace and in the future. By bringing fun, modern and creative ideas to their events, Pinot's Palette curates a unique, rewarding experience while providing a worthwhile contribution to the community.

Every franchise partner in the system and each member of the headquarters team is selected for their passion and commitment to furthering the mission and values of the organization. The Pinot's Palette culture, often described as Team Pinot, is integral to every facet of the business.
