If you’ve attended a “paint and sip” class or heard about the concept drinking while painting, you’re probably excited about opening an art studio wine bar.
Perhaps you're currently in the process or already own an art studio. Whatever stage you're in, we can help take your business to the next level.
If you're completely new to the process, the first step is to decide between the "franchise" or "independent" route. As a "franchisee", you can expect to pay an upfront cost of $100,000-$150,000, adopt the business model and brand of the franchisor. Going forward, a portion of your monthly revenue will be paid out to headquarters commonly known as a "royalty fee". Since you'll be signing a binding "franchise agreement" for an average of seven years, you could potentially pay at least 50%-80% more over the course of the agreement as a franchisee versus being an independently owned studio.
As an independent studio, you own the business and pay no royalties. More importantly, you have 100% freedom in the decision making process of your brand, location, services offered, products sold, the hours you work, etc.
If you've made the decision to go the independent route, but don't know where to start, we encourage you to explore our consulting services and see how we can help you. We have several options depending on your goals, timeline and budget.
We offer business plan writing, brand development, location scouting, lease negotiation, vendor referrals, studio design and build, inventory lists, SEO websites, digital marketing, artist interviews, live "instructor-tainer" training, licensed paintings, sales tactics and many more. Rest assured, we'll guide you every step of the way!
We've built an independent art studio wine bar from scratch and understand the complexities involved from start to finish. In less than four years, we've established a loyal customer base of 15,000+ and 200+ corporate clients. We've since helped others launch their own independent art studio based on our successful model.
We are the only firm to specialize in advising clients from strategy to execution launch of an independently owned art studio wine bar. Our consultants have over 50 years of combined corporate and small business experience in sales, business development, strategic marketing, financial payment services and web development.
Our goal is to help you learn the ins and outs of an art wine business so you don't spend your energy on trial and error. Mistakes that can be avoided or minimized will save you time, money and undue stress!
