I think they have their events covered by Ronald...plus people go there to eat cheap, so unless it's only practice, I don't think it's necessarily the market you want.

When I was beginning I went there with some pics I had and show them and give them my business cards they very gentle put them inside their folder with the information for their parties, I never got a call, don't waste your time with them.

If you have Chik-fil-a's around you they do kids nights once a week... that would be a good place to try.

i was told they would have to hire me as an employee, but at a rate of $10 an hour (regular crew makes 7.45 to start)...

the catch is i have to work friday and saturdays until 2pm.


the good side is that most weekend parties start after 2...so it won't actually cut into profits if the gig is in the same town.
the BAD thing is most corporate gigs start in the morning...so you're losing out on the BIG BIG bucks.


the BEST thing is you still get a decent income in the dead winter months even if nobody shows up to get painted.it's a regular gig, steady pay....crappy pay but better than minimum wage.



oh yeah, and they buy ALL of your paints and supplies for you.

Depends upon the restaurant. I know Linda Schrenk has done McDonalds before. Pretty regularly, if I remember correctly.
