Meet Vicki & Jason Prete

onwers vicki & jason PreteMy husband and I visited a “paint & sip” art studio for a date night last year, and my first thought was “I wish I’d thought of this…”. I loved the concept! I had the best time I’d had in a long time that night.

I was able to relax and forget about work and kids and school for a few hours, while discovering a creative side of myself that I didn’t know or believe existed. It was fun and therapeutic and I couldn’t wait to do it again.

Fast forward to a year later. I really wanted to take my daughter who had just turned 21, so we could share the experience together. I was searching online for venues we could visit when the colorful Bottle & Bottega logo caught my eye. I went to the website and was disappointed to see there wasn’t one in the Cleveland area to go to. As I was getting ready to leave the page, I saw the “Open a Franchise” link and was curious. I had owned and operated a few small home businesses in the past, but franchising had never crossed my mind…until this moment.

Being a computer programmer for the last 13 years and recently completing my Bachelor’s Degree, I was becoming more and more restless with having to sit behind a computer screen all day. I was hoping to move into a career that utilized more of the business skills that I had acquired over the years, and where I could be more active and social. After researching everything I could about Bottle & Bottega, I decided that this was the business opportunity that could fulfill my career goals and dreams. I could be challenged with my “work”, while being able to share the creative and social experience that I believe so many people can benefit from and enjoy. Life is busy and stressful. Bottle & Bottega is unique, social, creative and FUN!
