Pinot’s Palette has been ranked as one of the top franchise systems in the nation by Franchise Times. This marks the first time Pinot’s Palette has made the list and the 20th year that the magazine has produced the Top 200+, which evaluates more than 500 franchise systems and ranks them based on sales and number of locations.
Franchise systems had to show a minimum of $23 million in system wide sales to make this year’s ranking. The publication also compiled information on specific areas of franchising and sales in the Personal Service Brands category, which increased 7.6 percent this year, and includes Pinot’s Palette.
“This is an incredibly prestigious award by one of the industry’s leading publications, and the hard work of the entire Pinot’s Palette franchise network can take credit for this honor,” said Craig Ceccanti, co-founder and CEO of Pinot’s Palette.
Headquartered in Houston, Pinot’s Palette was founded in 2009 when Charles Willis, his wife Beth, and friend-turned-business partner Ceccanti opened their first paint and sip studio.
