Aggressive Year Planned……..

Annette Brennan introduced the Crock A Doodle pottery painting studio concept in 2002 with the intention of creating an opportunity for relaxed social interaction, unplugged from technology that would allow for creative exploration and simple, hand-on play.  The bright and cheerful Crock A Doodle studio provides people of all ages an opportunity to transform platters, plates, mugs, etc. into personalized, one-of-a-kind keepsake and gift items.  A franchise concept since 2004, the chain presently includes over 30 studios in Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta with the latest unit opening at The Boardwalk in Waterloo in Southwestern Ontario last week. The chain is planning aggressive expansion in the coming year, focusing on markets in the greater Toronto and surrounding markets such as Brampton, Guelph, Peterborough, Barrie, St. Catharines, Cambridge, etc.  Derek Gaudette at Clearstream Commercial Real Estate Ltd. is handling the site selection for the chain and notes that the Crock A Doodle studios will operate in units of about 1200 square feet, preferably in family-friendly plazas with strong co-tenancies.
