Painting with a Twist Ranked No. 1 in Category in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500®

MANDEVILLE, La.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Painting

with a Twist®, the nation's largest paint-and-sip franchise, was

recently ranked the No. 1 Paint Sip Studio as part of the 2015 Entrepreneur

magazine annual Franchise

500 edition. This marks the second year in a row Painting with a

Twist has earned this honor.

Throughout its 36 years in existence, the Franchise 500

has acknowledged top companies for outstanding performance in areas

including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the

franchise system. The list has acted as a dominant competitive measure

for franchisors as well as a primary research tool for individuals

seeking established franchise concepts with proven systems and results.

Painting with a Twist was ranked

No. 1 in its category and 260 overall, reinforcing its status as the

nation's top franchise in the paint-and-sip industry.

"It is the utmost honor not only to be ranked in the Franchise 500, but

to top our category for the second year in a row," said Cathy Deano,

co-founder of Painting with a Twist. "This recognition underscores the

successful evolution of our proven franchise model. Frankly speaking,

the more successful our franchise partners become, the faster we

continue to grow. It's truly a great reward for Renee and I to see the

talented, competitive, and passionate entrepreneurs in our franchise

system achieve their personal goals."

In 2014, Painting with a Twist opened 69 studios - more than one new

studio each week - bringing the total studio count to more than 190

locations across 28 states. Development plans in the coming year include

further expansion into the Northeast and Western states while reaching

as far out as Hawaii, growing the brand's national footprint.



Fueling Painting with a Twist's unit growth - and equally important to

the long-term success of the brand - is the same-studio sales, which is

revenue comparison of existing studios that have been open for at least

one year, company officials say.





"In 2014, our same-studio sales revenue increased 37 percent over last

year, proving that our strategy and vision are on target, and our

dominant market share is yielding system-wide benefits for all

associated with our brand," said Renee Maloney, co-founder of Painting

with a Twist. "By working closely with our franchise partners we

continue to leverage enormous amounts of institutional knowledge into

fresh, new and creative experiences for our growing mainstay of repeat

guests."



At Painting with a Twist, people come together to experience a unique

'getaway' that includes friends, paint and the option to BYOB. Led by

local art instructors, guests paint on bare 16" by 20" canvases using

paint and brushes provided by the studio. There are more than 5,000

original pieces of copyrighted artwork, ranging from landscapes,

abstracts and cityscapes, to creative renderings of animals, iconic

buildings and florals, that have been conceptualized and produced by

Painting with a Twist art instructors. Friends gather for an evening of

laughs, creativity and camaraderie as they create one-of-a-kind pieces

of art to take home and, often, discover a newfound talent. In addition

to the scheduled classes, Painting with a Twist also offers private

parties for corporate outings, bridal showers, sorority functions, baby

showers and special events.
