Check Out Cyndi Cote’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cyndi Cote.

Hi Cyndi, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
I have always been a crafter. My husband and I went on a date to Pinspiration spring of 2021, and I fell in love with the concept. The next day I emailed to inquire about the franchise and signed on soon after! We open on September 16th!

We all face challenges, but would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
With Covid, the rental market has been challenging. Build-out took double the time estimated due to labor and scarce materials. The prices of everything have also gone up, so my budget has been reworked many times. As a franchise, there are many specific design requirements. We were originally scheduled to open in March, then June, and finally in September.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
Pinspiration is the first Pinterest-inspired DIY craft studio. We offer the original Jackson Pollock-inspired Splatter room. You can come, suit up, and throw paint with your friends, creating original artwork! With over 40 of the top trending projects on Pinterest, there is something for everyone. Our projects are constantly changing, but we encourage customers to be creative and come up with their own variations. Pinspiration differs from other studios because you don’t need a reservation, and everyone can make a completely different project. We offer projects from painting to jewelry, string art, card making, wood signs and table decor, ceramics, and everything between! There is also a bar with sweet and savory snacks, mock-tinis and soft drinks. There are 10 themed parties for kids, however we offer space for ladies’ night out, date night, baby showers, and even team-building events. Walk-ins and reservations are always welcome! At my location, in the coming months, I will also start offering classes in the evenings. Coming soon is the Halloween event, our “BOO BASH,” so look for it!

Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
Design is my niche. I love architecture, textiles, and color- especially mixing patterns! I went to school for design and switched over to elementary education halfway through.
