Our Vision

To provide you a unique opportunity to share your DIY passion while having the flexibility and freedom to grow your studio at the pace that works for your family.

Our Franchise Family

We are Board & Brush Creative Studios, a family of successful franchise owners who host inspiring DIY workshops for people who love to create and connect with friends. Our fellow franchisees come from all walks of life, and they’re all discovering the same great things for themselves and their families. They know the freedom and flexibility of owning a studio. They feel a sense of purpose from creating a space where people find creativity, friendship, and inspiration.

We refer to our Studio owners as a ‘franchise family’, because that is how we feel about our owners, they are part of our family. We’ve developed communications and processes that ensure a successful working relationship while providing the opportunity to partner in a fun family-friendly environment.

Understanding franchising may seem very difficult. Our extensive franchise disclosure document (FDD) provides a great deal of information that the prospective franchisee will need and want. We are here to help you understand the key terms of our franchise offer and feel confident in any decision you may make.

When you Succeed, We all Succeed

Our DIY workshops are amazingly fun and our customers always leave with a home décor piece that is worthy of their walls! This is what keeps our customers coming back. What helps our studios succeed in this model is our state of the art website, design library and ability to provide ongoing operational efficiencies. Buying a franchise allows you to buy into a system with a track record of success, established branding, training and support programs, marketing support and purchase power. All of these benefits help reduce risk when you open your dream business.
