Standard Textile Combats Homelessness With 80,000 Showers
Standard Textile, a global leader in the healthcare and hospitality textile markets, says it is launching a national program to combat homelessness. The company is partnering with four non-profit organizations across the United States that provide mobile shower services to people living either on the streets or in insufficient housing, with a goal of supporting 80,000 showers by the end of 2021.
To honor the company's legacy of inspiring care, comfort, and change in communities, it is expanding its commitment by launching "Standard Textile Cares."
"Ending homelessness requires a comprehensive approach," says Gary Heiman, Standard Textile's President and Chief Executive Officer. "It begins by treating those experiencing homelessness with dignity and respect which are basic values that our partner organizations offer. And it begins with basic essentials such as a safe place to bathe and a soft towel and blanket to provide comfort. These simple acts have the potential of changing outcomes and creating a better future for those in need."

Painting with a Twist's Parent Company Acquires Color Me Mine and Chesapeake Ceramics
The parent company of Painting with a Twist, America's original and largest paint-and-sip franchise brand, has acquired Color Me Mine, the industry leader in paint-your-own pottery and Chesapeake Ceramics, a leading global ceramics supplier. Twist Brands LLC was formed as a holding company for all three businesses. The move is meant to cement Twist Brands as the dominant leader in the growing Arts & Crafts as entertainment vertical within the franchise industry and ensure a stable supply chain for the studios operating within those brands.
Color Me Mine, which has 140 units, will operate as a separate brand concept and will continue to focus on ceramics and paint-your-own pottery. The Painting with a Twist team will help support the brand's infrastructure and growth moving forward. Color Me Mine has seen recent organic expansion in the franchise space through existing owners becoming multi-unit franchisees and adding new studios.
Chesapeake Ceramics is one of the leading global suppliers to paint-your-own-pottery studios, ceramics products dealerships and school art programs with distribution centers in Fresno, CA and Baltimore, MD. It has operated out of Baltimore, MD for more than 40 years. Chesapeake Ceramics currently distributes ceramic arts supplies to thousands of businesses and art programs nationwide, and with the acquisition will add the Duncan Oh Four® line of proprietary bisque designs to its offerings, adding 75 domestic and international distributors as customers.
