Unity Rd. Named One of the Top US Cannabis Retailers by MJBizDaily
Powered by ONE Cannabis Group, the Cannabis Dispensary Franchise was Recognized for its Unique Approach to Expanding the Industry for the Betterment of Others
December 20, 2019 // Franchising.com // DENVER - Unity Rd., powered by ONE Cannabis Group, was named one of the top cannabis retail leaders in the nation by MJBizDaily, the most trusted daily news source for the cannabis industry. Chosen from more than 700 submissions, the U.S. dispensary franchise was one of five retailers to be named a finalist in the publication’s inaugural award program for the “U.S. Market Leader – Retail” category. They join the elite bench with Planet 13, Native Roots, The Apothecarium and Bloom Medicinals.
Awards were presented December 12, 2019 at The Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas during the MJBizDaily Awards ceremony, which took place during the publication’s annual MJBizCon conference.
The MJBizDaily awards recognize the excellence and impact of individuals and businesses who are setting the standards and propelling the industry forward – awarding for sustained growth, unique influence in a specific market or overall impact on the community and industry at large. The U.S. Market Leader Award acknowledges companies who are leaders in their category, utilizing the latest innovations and new or unique approach to expanding the industry as a whole. Judging was completed in-house by MJBizDaily editorial staff members along with an advisory panel of industry experts.
Unity Rd. was selected for bringing together two worlds that have never successfully been merged, offering stability & continuity to cannabis through franchising. The marijuana franchise launched in 2018 and has multiple agreements signed with eight entrepreneurial groups across the United States for development in Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Massachusetts, and Ohio, among others. The industry trailblazer is the first to bring the cannabis dispensary franchise model to the United States - with duality of prowess in both industries to back it up. Built from the legacy of Green Man Cannabis, a decade old Colorado dispensary pioneer and infused with decades of franchise experience, the company helps eager operators and social equity applicants alike open their dispensaries with confidence by utilizing its turnkey franchise blueprint and deep network of seasoned experts to enter the complex industry with ease.
“Franchising an independent business the right way is complicated enough. When you throw cannabis into the mix, it takes a team who has been through the process multiple times and built up emerging franchise concepts to truly understand how to scale a franchise nationally in cannabis. Without this extensive franchise knowledge, long-term success is unlikely,” said Unity Rd. COO Mike Weinberger, who has nearly two decades of franchise industry experience. “Our team is backed by a deep track record in both cannabis and franchising and has made strong headway since we launched our franchise model. This recognition speaks volumes to what we’re achieving – inspiring confidence in cannabis for all.”
Unity Rd. partners with industry newcomers, existing multi-unit franchisees who are looking to diversify their franchise portfolio as well as existing dispensary owners or operators. Total investments range from $1 million to $2.5 million, including a $100,000 franchise fee for a single unit or $250,000 for three units. Those interested in becoming a Unity Rd. franchisee should have access to a minimum $1 million in liquid capital. Franchisees may be owner-operators or passive owners with a designated, experienced manager running operations.
