Over 40 years combined experience in franchising
Established in 2009, Bottle & Bottega’s Painting & Wine Party Studios is an exclusive social event business. Through the winning combination of wine and art, Bottle & Bottega offers clients the chance to let loose and be creative in a warm and welcoming environment. They offer public, private, and corporate painting and wine parties seven days a week, both onsite (in a Bottle & Bottega studio) and off-site (pop-ups and corporate locations). These events attract a variety of intimate groups that typically range from a group of five to 250 or more.
Bottle & Bottega guests love the sophisticated and vibrant studios that feel more like a friend’s living room than an impersonal classroom. And because Bottle & Bottega is always working hard to stay ahead of art trends, guests continue to come back to B & B for fresh, new and innovative art experiences.
In 2010 Bottle & Bottega caught the eye of franchise success story Nancy Bigley. With over 20 years of franchise leadership experience with Dunkin’ Brands, American Leak Detection, and The Dwyer Group. Nancy recognized a successful franchise opportunity and was quick to join Bottle & Bottega founder Stephanie King-Myers as co-owner and CEO in 2011. That same year the business started franchising.
“After speaking with Nancy, I loved her passion and excitement to provide opportunities to grow this business in other markets. She inspired me to want to be in business for myself.” -Stacy, Franchisee, San Jose, CA
