Brand Development

Got something cool that would look even cooler with our logo on it? We pride ourselves on being hip across multiple demographics. We’ve long been associated with rock ‘n roll, hip hop, dance culture, heavy metal, R&B, and even experimental jazz. That said, our logo can be just as easily found on a KF Brooklyn t-shirt worn by a forty something exec reposing at a sidewalk café as it is on the KF skateboard deck under the 16-year-old racing by.

The Knitting Factory logo. Unique to everyone.

Licensing and Franchising

Knitting Factory Entertainment is the first entertainment based licensing group to offer every aspect of a fully integrated brand, from venue and restaurant licensing and support, to touring, talent management and merchandising. The ability to secure support from seasoned and skilled upper level management gives the local owner all the necessary tools needed to succeed. Owning a Knitting Factory branded and licensed pub or venue gives local operators a considerable edge over their competitors. It’s your one way ticket to hipsterdom!
