The business has rapidly increased since 2007. The first reported paint and wine studio was in Alabama. The first franchise was “A painting fiesta” in Miami, Fl, they catered to both kids and adults. Now, there is an estimate of 1000 wine and painting companies in the U.S. Many of these companies partner up with restaurants to throw paint nights weekly. Others open up their own franchise like Dan Hermann’s business “Paint Nite”. Dann and his friend Sean Mcgrail came up with the idea of after brainstorming one night. They wanted to find an inexpensive way to start a painting party business and they did. They only invested $6,815, Now they have 54 employees and they operate in 115 cities globally and are worth $30 million.
