This is a turn-key, fully operating business generating profits and with great potential for further growth. The seller has spent more than $300,000 developing this franchise location but must sell for personal reasons. The seller's loss could be your gain. You must see it to appreciate what an outstanding value this is. It is an incredible opportunity to purchase a fun, easy to operate, paint and sip studio. And you don't necessarily have to be artistically inclined. You hire and support artists who are good with people. Generally, customers don't come to paint and sip studios to receive rigid instruction on the finer points of art: they come to have a good time! They want to relax with friends, enjoy a glass of wine, beer or non-alcohol beverages, and leave with memories and a fun piece of art. Many of the customers are corporations treating their employees to some relaxing and fun time off, bonding with fellow employees away from the daily regular work routine. Franchise owners love being a go-to spot for customers to relax, unwind and let loose. From date nights to birthdays and bachelorette parties, the paint parties are a unique way to celebrate all of life's special moments - even if the occasion is just called "Friday." This top ranked, award-winning, franchise now has paint and sip franchise locations from coast to coast and internationally. The city where this business is located is a wonderful place to work and/or live. Residents considered the many pluses (such as its charming small-town feel, its ideal micro-climate, low crime rate, good schools, well maintained classic and varied architecture, clean tree-lined streets, beautiful parks, its great central Bay Area location, etc.) to be the best kept secret in the Bay Area. However, it's a secret no more. The city is now booming with carefully planned, smart new developments including hundreds of new homes recently constructed and many more in the building pipeline. These residential developments, plus its major, well-anchored shopping centers are drawing more and more people and businesses from all over the greater Bay Area. It has become a very desirable destination city. This simple to operate studio near the bustling downtown area is a great business opportunity to take advantage of the city's so many wonderful attributes.


Competition Description

Growth / Expansion overview

The Seller has done a fantastic job of developing this business so far and has built a solid foundation on which to continue its growth and expansion. Future growth plans may include offering the services off site and the franchisor offers its franchisees the mobile equipment and system to do that. In addition, this particular franchise location has the opportunity to expand into an adjacent space with a separate entrance. Using this for non-alcohol services could draw customers for kid-friendly entertainment and events such as birthday parties and other festivities. Plus the Seller has several other great ideas for growth.
