Recently, at the last minute, we had the opportunity to have a paint party birthday party for our oldest daughter, since she enjoys arts and crafts. It was a huge success! We had the opportunity to have our party at our local froyo place, Sweet Frog. I also had the privilege to interview the owner of VA Paint Party, Misty Adams.
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What is the name of your business and who are your potential customers?
VA Paint Party: The name of my business is VA Paint Party, LLC. My potential customer is…. ANYONE! Any age – young to senior, male or females! All ages have a lot of fun.
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your customers?
VA Paint Party: There are several great competitors out there in the same industry and I knew I had to find a niche in this market. Offering paint parties to everyone is it!
You can have your kids sitting right beside you painting along on their own canvas as well as offering a unique birthday party for them. We have had birthday parties for kids starting at age 4 all the way to a young 71st birthday!
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Are you a mom? If so, did this business have anything to do with initiating VA Paint Party?
VA Paint Party: I am a very proud mother of 3. A stepmom to two and one of my own. Their ages range from 21, 18, and 17. I wanted our kid to know that dreams come true! If you work hard and focus – you can be successful in all you do!
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What do you expect to be the outcome of “VA Paint Party”?
VA Paint Party: I have very high goals for VA Paint Party. I started as a one woman show and within less than 4 months, I now have 5 sub-contractors to keep up with demand. Main goal is to offer exceptional customer service and we fit the needs to every paint party – that will always be the main goal. As far as the future, we are interested in piggybacking with existing business locations to use space when available. We would love to offer more classes in a stable environment. Even though we currently go to the customer, some clients also ask if there is a location they can come to. We are working on finding solutions for their needs.
