Interactive BYOB Art Studio, Profitable, Don't Pay for a Franchise!
Established & Affordable Art Business, Profitable & Growing
Estimated initial investment costs needed to start a paint and sip studio franchise in 2016, according to Entrepreneur Magazine (www.entrepreneur.com/franchises/category/svcparty).
Painting with a Twist - $89,300-$143,000, plus 6%-8% ongoing royalties
Pinot's Palette - $76,700-$196,600, plus 6%-8% ongoing royalties
Bottle & Bottega - $96,800-$158,200, plus 6%-8% ongoing royalties
Painting With Influence (that's us) - $30,000, and that's it!!!
We're not claiming to be as big as the other guys, but that's because we are currently an owner operated, part time, independent business that is tailored to the desires of the current owner. And we're still profitable. Why spend $80,000-$200,000 to start something that you still have to keep paying royalties on forever when you can own this move-in ready studio for a fraction of the the cost and still have more flexibility to operate the way you want than any franchise that will tell you how you have to run your business?!
This is a 3 year old, fully operational, BYOB "paint and sip" style art business in an easily accessible, quickly growing, and trendy historic location in Carrollton, TX. We currently offer painting and ceramic classes and parties for all ages. Guests may bring food and drinks with them to class, where they are led step by step in the creation of the featured piece of art which they get to take home with them at the end! This appeals to a wide variety of individuals, but is especially popular for work outings, showers and birthday parties with both adults and kids. We have been in business with the same name in the same location for over 3 years. We have an active Facebook community, an email subscriber list of over 3000, and a full-service website with email and online booking platform integration.
Best of all, we are NOT a franchise - we are independent. That means you have total freedom and flexibility to run and build your business how you choose. You may offer new classes, sell new items, or redecorate the studio as you like. And most importantly there are no monthly franchise fees. The average out of pocket costs for the typical "paint and sip" franchises range from $80K-$200K with weekly franchise royalty fees on top (see top of page for reference), but we are asking just $30K, and we've already done the start-up work for you. Now you can take it as far as you like. All furniture, fixtures, equipment, supplies and inventory is included in the asking price. Seller financing available for qualified buyers. We will consider all offers.
The business comes fully furnished with all equipment and supplies necessary to run the business (tables, stools, easels, aprons, brushes, paint, original artworks, canvasses, clay, clay tools, glazes, kiln, office supplies, kitchen supplies, refrigerator, microwave, speakers, printer, website, phone, email, back-end booking/payment systems, and so on). All you need to bring is yourself!
Recent Financial Summary:
2015 revenue was was just over $36,000.
The Past 12 months revenue was just under $39,000.
Total profit not including the cost of hiring artists was just over $14,000. If you were to hire artists for all classes at an average of $55/class, then profit would still be about $6,000-$8,000, showing that this is a profitable business even if not completely owner operated and at a part time level. Imagine the possibilities if you were to operate full time or wanted to teach your own classes! With minimal effort, word of mouth and repeat customers are growing the business. We are still operating part time by choice and having to decline certain events, so with full time hours there is even greater growth potential.
