Painting with a Twist

About Painting with a Twist

Painting With A Twist is a new concept, artistic painting as entertainment. Although the basic idea has been around for years, only recently has it has been formatted to be the basis for a successful business formula.
The Painting with a Twist advantage
If you love art, and would love to introduce people to their creative side, this is the business for you. It is fun, low investment, and simple to run. Your customers will enter into a pleasurable, innovative environment, where they will experience first hand the excitement of creating their own work of art.

All of our art is produced and copyrighted in our corporate offices. We have staff artists whose sole occupation is creating new art for our franchises. Our paintings are interesting and have stood the test of customer satisfaction.

 Based in Mandeville, Louisiana, Painting with a Twist is the franchise arm of Corks N Canvas, LLC. The concept is so popular that the owners Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney opened their first Corks N Canvases in November 2007, and by March 2009 they had three company owned stores, and by July 2009 they had sold four franchises. People love it!

 Cathy and Renee believe this is a recession proof business. For the cost of $35.00 or $45.00, a person can have an evening of entertainment and leave with a painting to hang on their wall or give as a gift. There is also a good chance they will leave feeling better about themselves than when they arrived.

When you own a franchise you have many significant advantages over the person who chooses to go into business on their own. As a franchise owner you are part of an already successful business "family" with a proven track record. You receive training at the corporate offices, you have access to over 1000 copyrighted works of art. You are assisted in hiring your staff and have access to all the information needed to open a store. You are given a comprehensive manual which takes you through each step in opening and operating a successful business.
We also do the demographic research for your area.

Our corporate office will send an artist and a team member from the corporate office for your opening night. The artist will conduct your first class and our staff member will see that your first night runs smoothly.

You will have access to a state of the art online computer program that will allow you to manage your own business from wherever you have internet access.

Our approved vendors give you the best products for the most economical price.

The Painting With A Twist concept gives the franchise owner a career that does not necessitate a huge capital outlay, is exciting to operate, and is a welcome addition to any community.
