Vintner’s Circle Franchising LLC, the New Jersey based wine making franchise, is pleased to announce that it has just signed a deal to open three new shops in the fast-growing Northern Metrowest section of Massachusetts. New franchise owners, Mike Ziethlow and Brenda Sartoris, both of Massachusetts, expect to open their first Vintner’s Circle in Westford in the fall of 2012.
“We are delighted to welcome Mike and Brenda to our team,” says David Schmeltzle, president of Vintners Circle Franchising. “They possess the enthusiasm for wine making, a customer-focused philosophy and practical business experience adds so much value to our brand.”
Discovering Vintner’s Circle fit right into Brenda and Mike’s lifestyle and plans. “We were thinking about how to turn our hobby into a prosperous business and Vintner’s Circle seemed like a perfect fit,” comments Mike. “We both got hooked on home wine making after taking a class.”
“We have a passion for wine,” says Brenda. “We have made all different types of wines and enjoy sharing them with our friends and family.”
Northern Metrowest comprises several towns along a corridor of Route 495, just west of Boston. Called the “arc of innovation” by the 495/Metro West Partnership, the area is home to some of the largest and fastest growing companies in the state.
“This area is a natural for the type of consumer and lifestyle that Vintner’s Circle attracts,” Schmeltzle comments. “We anticipate a great response.”
