S4 Ep10: Hawaii Fluid Art: The Unique Franchise Celebs Can’t Get Enough Of

How does an art class, enjoyed by Pink and Matthew McConaughey, become a franchise?

Maya Ratcliff is the Founder of Hawaii Fluid Art – an accessible art class with incredible results. Celebrities love it, but anyone can join in and create a one-off piece they’ll be proud to display on their wall.

From one location in Hawaii, founded during the pandemic, to two more in Dallas and Kansas City, Maya has ambitious plans to open 10 more corporate locations by the end of 2023.

The Wolf and Maya discuss the resin layer and techniques that make Hawaii Fluid Art unique, why her absentee business modelworks so well, and how she negotiated down the price of materials.

You’ll also hear how these negotiations mean classes run up to a 95% profit margin for every student who walks through the door.

You know how hard it is to hire at scale. That’s why successful franchise owners use Wizehire. Shift to a new way of hiring and learn more at wizehire.com/pod.
