HOUSTON, July 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pinot's Palette, a fast-growing paint and sip franchise known for providing guests with an entertaining evening of art and wine, is pleased to announce that the company has recently partnered with VetFran, a program that helps U.S. military veterans locate franchise opportunities and provides a path toward business ownership with training, mentoring opportunities and financial assistance.
As a member of VetFran, Pinot's Palette will now offer veterans a 10 percent discount on its current franchise fee, reducing it to $22,500. Pinot's Palette President and Co-Founder Charles Willis says the partnership with VetFran is just one more way that the company is giving back to the community.
Willis says the partnership is a win-win for a growing national franchise chain and eligible veterans who have received the best training in America for following a proven system, compliments of the U.S. Military. Through VetFran, the fast-growing paint-and-sip company can connect with a large pool of new potential franchisees across the country, and veterans can have access to an exciting and fun business opportunity at a reduced cost.
"VetFran is a great organization and we look forward to partnering with veterans who want to become Pinot's Palette franchisees," Willis said. "We are thrilled to be able to add our VetFran membership to our growing list of community service initiatives and charity activities."
Pinot's Palette places a strong emphasis on supporting a variety of charities and causes. The company's official community service program, "Paint it Forward," encourages franchisees to get involved with local organizations such as children's hospitals, animal shelters or veterans' groups.
Since joining VetFran, Pinot's Palette has already received a number of promising inquiries from U.S. veterans in expanding markets including California and New York.
Pinot's Palette is currently seeking qualified franchisees in several regions, including Portland, Ore.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Columbus, Ohio and Providence, R.I.
