The Painting with a Twist® advantage
If you love art, and would love to introduce people to their creative side, this
is the business for you. It is fun, low investment, and simple to run. Your customers
will enter into a pleasurable, innovative environment, where they will experience
first hand the excitement of creating their own work of art.
All of our art is produced and copyrighted in our corporate offices. We have staff
artists whose sole occupation is creating new art for our franchises. Our paintings
are interesting and have stood the test of customer satisfaction.
Based in Mandeville, Louisiana, Painting with a Twist® is the franchise arm
of Corks N Canvas, LLC. The concept is so popular that the owners Cathy Deano and
Renee Maloney opened their first Corks N Canvases in November 2007, and by March
2009 they had three company owned stores, and by July 2009 they had sold four franchises.

of art. You are assisted in hiring your staff and have access to all the information
needed to open a store. You are given a comprehensive manual which takes you through
each step in opening and operating a successful business. We also do the demographic
research for your area.

for your opening night. The artist will conduct your first class and our staff member
will see that your first night runs smoothly.
You will have access to a state of the art online computer program that will allow
you to manage your own business from wherever you have internet access.
