Hammer and Stain Fairview DIY Workshop

Why Hammer and Stain

When I was researching business opportunities in the DIY arena, I compared several companies.  Ultimately, I went with Hammer and Stain for the following reasons:

  1. Financial investment 
  2. Artistic freedom
  3. Training and Support

Financial investment

Hammer and Stain $9500 one-time license fee
AR Workshop $25,000 franchise fee plus monthly fees (7% of gross sales)
Board and Brush $25,000 franchise fee plus monthly fees (7% gross sales)
Pinspiration $33,000 franchise fee plus 8% royalty fees


Artistic Freedom

Ultimately, I love that each Hammer and Stain studio is different.  You can design your studio any way you like as well as offer a wide variety of classes/workshops based on what you want as well!  

Training and support

While I'm sure other DIY business opportunities offer training and support, I knew Hammer and Stain did as well. This was important for me as a new business owner. I attended a 4 day training in Florida as well as an online owners facebook group that is invaluable.  There is a training manual as well.
