International Opportunities

A Letter from the Founders

Since 2007, we have been committed to strengthening our communities through creating art-related jobs, supporting local charities, inspiring entrepreneurs, and hosting fun and social art events for all. Through our #1 ranked* franchise system, we have been able to bring the Painting with a Twist® experience to over 325 communities in 37 U.S. states in just 7 years making us one of the fastest growing new franchise opportunities today. Rooted with the same passion and purpose as in the U.S. market, we have developed a comprehensive international franchise plan to further expand our leading brand into new countries. We thank you for considering becoming a Painting with a Twist (International) franchise partner.

International Development Programs:

Area Development Agreement (ADA)

The Area Development Agreement (preferred) is defined by a commitment to open a certain number of studios, in a prescribed period of time, within a certain geographical area. Our ADA does not offer sub-franchise rights. All studios will be owned and operated by our designated franchise partner. In order to achieve economies of scale and to make it feasible for us to enter the new market, we require that a minimum number of studios are to be opened under a pre-determined schedule. The minimum number of units, and schedule for all ADAs, are determined on a case-by-case basis. We do not offer single-unit International franchises at this time.

Master Development Agreement (MDA)

Our Master Development Agreement is similar to our Area Development Agreement, but it also allows sub-franchising units directly. The Master Developer is then responsible for all franchise support functions to its sub-franchise partners. The MDA program is typically reserved for organizations that already have experienced infrastructure and resources to support a franchise network.
