My Story

Meet Minal Patel

Owner Minal PatelI was born in India and raised in the United States when my parents moved to Texas in 1981. I have been living in the Tampa Bay area since 2009 and have really grown to enjoy this community over the years. I moved to Florida after marrying my husband Tarun, who has lived in Tampa since 2001.

After working in Corporate America in various capacities and owning a couple of businesses throughout my career, I decided it was time for me to do something for which I truly have a passion. I have always had an affinity for creativity and art, but I am not an artist — by far. With my strong entrepreneurial spirit and background, I started researching different franchises that would allow me to explore my creative side. Once I learned about Bottle & Bottega, attended a party and saw the elegant studio layout, I knew without a doubt it was the perfect fit for me.

I am very excited to bring Bottle & Bottega to the Tampa Bay area to allow other individuals to explore their creative side.
