History

When we decided to open our Hoboken studio, the developing neighborhood welcomed us with open arms. We had created an outlet for self-expression, a place to go with friends, host a party or meet up with co-workers. Since 2012, the demand for our studio space kept growing and soon we had expanded the brand into 5 more locations in New Jersey.

By 2017, when the franchise opportunity was offered for the first time, studios were operating in Hoboken, Cranford, Millburn, Montclair, Freehold and Metuchen. People kept asking us when they could open their own studio. Now that opportunity is here and we are ready to support our franchise owners, while they realize their dream of owning their own business.

 

Our Mission

ArteVino Studio’s mission is to create a comfortable and casual environment where attendees can enjoy creating art regardless of their artistic level, background or age. We believe artistic self-expression is a great way to nurture a healthy outlet and decompress from stress of daily life and our goal is to provide a friendly and affordable environment for anyone to experience this.

We are looking for owner candidates who believe in our mission and want to be a part of their local community, owning a studio of their own.

FAQs

After your initial franchise fee is paid the rest of the estimates costs includes expenses to fit out your studio space with equipment, fixturing and furniture, initial inventory, costs to find real estate, get advice from professional advisors, insurance and 3-months of working capital.

How long does it take to open?

The time to open depends on how quickly you find a studio location. From the time of signing the lease, with our guidance you should be able to open in in as few as 2 months and as many as 6.

How do we create art?

You’ll use our library of paintings. We have countless paintings and our team is continually adding new, unique and proprietary artwork to our gallery to be offered to your customers in your studio.

How much money can I make? What is the ROI?

While we can’t answer that question directly, we will be able to share with you our Financial Performance Representation, called an Item 19, which highlights affiliate studio performance and history. This can be a useful tool to help you evaluate the ROI.

How many people does it take to run the studio?

As an Owner Operator, you will be the studio manager and/or the Chief Artist and we recommend at least one instructor to help lead classes. Then, you can hire staff as you grow, needing more instructors for your ArteVino studio.

Do I have to be the artist if I own the studio?

No. We do prefer Owner Operators, but your interest in creating a fun experience in your ArteVino studio is what is most important.
