Small Business Spotlight: Painting With a Twist
Who: Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney
What: A franchise company hosting fun nights for adults with art classes and wine
Where: New Orleans, Louisiana
How: Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney got the idea for Painting With a Twist after they were searching for a way to give back to their community in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
“We thought an art class sounded like a fun night, and it would be more fun if we added drinking, so we went to Michael’s [the art supply store], set up a class in the back of my barn, and it was great,” says Deano.
