The Franchise Relationship

We use the term franchise partner because that’s what you are: a partner. Through our years of experience, we’ve developed communications and processes that ensure a successful working relationship built for long-term growth and unparalleled value in our franchise.

Without prior franchise experience, it may seem incredibly difficult to understand the terms in a franchise disclosure document (FDD), how they may affect your profitability in the years ahead and how you can use them to compare to another franchise offering. The Proven Advantage checklist highlights key terms of our franchise offering in comparison to our competitors.

Discovery Days

Upon approval of your completed Request for Consideration form, a member of our franchise team will contact you to schedule a Discovery Day visit to the Painting with a Twist headquarters. During the Discovery Day visit, you’ll meet our entire home office team, tour our headquarters and corporate studio and gain a complete understanding of our business.

We sincerely look forward to meeting you in person, and we appreciate your interest in our #1-ranked Paint and Sip franchise.
