Who is Bottle & Bottega?
One day in March 2009, our founder Stephanie King-Myers successfully convinced her non-artistic friend that she could in fact paint with the right inspiration. So with a glass of wine in one hand and a paint brush in the other, her friend successfully created her first masterpiece, and the Bottle & Bottega concept was born!
With the magic from that night, combined with Stephanie’s entrepreneurial spirit, the idea blossomed into a thriving and exciting mobile business throughout Chicago neighborhoods. Then in 2010, the success, adventure, and potential of the business caught the attention of Nancy Bigley. With more than 18 years of franchise leadership experience with companies such as Dunkin’ Brands, (Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins) Nancy recognized the signs of a unique and successful franchise opportunity for other young entrepreneurs.
Thus, in 2011 Nancy joined the Bottle & Bottega team as Co-Owner and CEO. Since then, the dynamic duo have strategically taken over the Chicago marketplace and established a proven business model. The next step was to allow entrepreneurs across the nation to become part of the Bottle & Bottega family through franchising.
In addition to providing the right environment to create a unique and profitable business opportunity, Nancy & Stephanie’s goal for their franchisees, guests and employees is to Inspire, Empower & Nurture the daring inner spirit that lives inside us all.

BizBash- “The studio hosts private painting parties for corporate groups of 5 to 65. Team-building activities include dividing into groups to paint on a large canvas with pre-drawn line art. At the end of the task—which normally takes two to three hours—all the canvases combine to form one complete design.”
