Painted Penguin Ceramic Crafts Franchise Business:

Providing do-it-yourself family fun

The Painted Penguin experience is all about having fun. Our locations are "paint-it-yourself" crafts stores. The d├ęcor is neat and clean, with shelves displaying hundreds of decorative ceramic and plaster choices, from teddy bears and dogs, to dragons and fairies. With the prices of our items ranging from less than $10 to over $100, our pieces appeal to painters of all ages. The cost conveniently includes all of the supplies needed to complete the piece, including paint, glitter, gloss, brushes, and disposable smocks. Customers can take their artwork home the same day!

The Painted Penguin stores are located inside high-traffic, middle-to-upscale shopping centers. The bright and colorful storefronts regularly attract walk-ins, but locations are also absolutely ideal for children's birthday parties, Girl and Boy Scout events, school field trips, family time, corporate events and even adult gatherings. We can also host events at outside facilities.

A variety of group packages are available. The Painted Penguin can provide pizza, cake, balloons, party invitations, and more. Busy parents can even choose to hand over the responsibility of compiling the "goody bags" for parties!
