Color Me Mine offers franchise owners a LOW START-UP COST, in a business that is FUN TO OPERATE, provides a worthwhile COMMUNITY SERVICE and is very difficult to compete against. This is all possible because millions has been invested to establish long-term stability through proprietary innovations, product diversification, centralized marketing, and operating systems that are all difficult and expensive for competitors to replicate.

Color Me Mine franchisees also enjoy a LOWER COST OF GOODS and lower studio operating expenses than independent studios - even after royalty and national ad fund expenses. Additionally, with help from the best partners in the industry such as DISNEY®, WARNER BROS®, SONY PICTURES®, PIXAR®, UNIVERSAL PICTURES®, GARE®, DUNCAN®, SKUTT® and more, Color Me Mine's licensed factories and supply sources ensure our studios of high quality products with a consistent clay base.


Since 1996, the company has invested several million dollars to develop the ideal infrastructure required to provide the best new location development and ongoing studio support in the industry. The Color Me Mine support system begins the moment the franchise is awarded and includes the following comprehensive new studio development support features:

  • Real estate analysis with site score modeling
  • Full demographic analysis with consumer profile study
  • Financing referral for SBA or conventional loan
  • Business comparison to similar studio locations
  • Non-binding letter of intent and negotiated terms
  • Lease review upon site selection
  • Preliminary layout by Color Me Mine architect
  • Construction assistance plan evaluation and bidding
  • On-site studio opening assistance


Franchise owners have countless advantages over similar businesses. Color Me Mine studios have an established system of operations from the moment they open. They receive comprehensive training and regular BUSINESS COACHING from experts so they don't have to rely on trial and error. They become part of a team of savvy operators that log onto a secure intranet site for proven marketing materials, shared experiences and become part of a leading national name brand.

Color Me Mine emphasizes education and hands-on training with each of its franchise owners. New owners start their training at our BEVERLY HILLS studio where they spend 4 days receiving hands on experience prior to classroom training.

While all owners or managers may attend the classroom sessions, the in-studio training is reserved for owners. Design techniques, marketing programs, technical skills, management and customer service techniques are all carefully reviewed. After receiving their "Studio Operator Certification”, franchisees are ready to begin running their own fun, EASY-TO-OPERATE studio with the use of the following proprietary Color Me Mine support platform:
