Kathy thanks for being here.
I treated this morning seeking information and feedback from some of your customers and boy did I hear from them and I also heard from people who were curious so.
My questions come from them.
What is paint with a twist and where is it around the country.
-- with a twist is a concept where we.
Demystify aren't you coming and we've got an artist we've got everything you need and she walked she -- Pena -- and two to three hours.
With music going you bring your snack she being bring -- beverage of choice it's it's a fun night out it's it's a new fun night out.
And it you learn a little bit about art but this isn't heavy art pisses.
Is what it yes and it really gives art to the masses is what we like to -- Well I'm what I understand two people invite these parties and their friends to -- men.
And it's your chance for them just to get together than anything else but there is a piece of art at the -- you take it home to your bio what happens.
You take it home your are Europe sash and your feet -- coming and includes everything and then when you leave.
You get a piece art you can hang on the -- you can give it as a gift you can donate it to somebody.
It's a very good value your classes run 35 to 45 dollars you've had two or three hours of a lot of fun with your friends.
And and you get something to take home and you kind of feel like an artist of the night my business partner -- Maloney calls it karaoke art and you know you.
You feel like -- -- rock star when you doing karaoke what you really understand it.

And after that we were trying to figure out something that we could do -- after Katrina and we were looking for some -- to do for our south.
And a good friend of mine John Hodge in France and rich called me out there artist in our community and they said about.
Speed art or something and we like I don't know about that none of you know and so we kind of built on that though and we did it -- in my barn.
-- with our friends and a teacher and everybody had a ball.
So we kind of new on to something and so we opened -- one little store in -- to the Louisiana which is on the North Shore of lake front to train.
And people driving to bridges and and to come they will lobby that and -- wanted to move.
Open one in New Orleans which is on the South Shore of the like an outline god that is the next fifteen years younger than -- she's got energy then made.
And I can't imagine.
That we opened up in New Orleans and it exploded it all right so real quickly because I wanna get to the point your small business owner you employ people now how mentally and is -- franchised.
It is franchised we have eighty franchises.
I'm nationwide -- in seven.
Sixteen states we have eighty franchises.
We employee including nine people in -- corporate office.
But franchise wide we are one of the law we are the largest employer of artist not employ -- we're the largest higher.
In the United States outside the school system as well how about Kathy do you know.
An idea that that kind of took shape in her barn.
I thought next time you're -- a gathering I'll be with you some apparent goal to thank you could blanket thanks wonderfully detailed in -- -- -- and yet you drink wine while you do -- -- won't really matter but that's all that's just yet thought up.
