Taking the High Road: Unity Rd. is pioneering the retail cannabis industry and is in growth mode
Franchisees who have signed on with cannabis dispensary pioneer Unity Rd. have high hopes that it will be their next business success – and the data gives them good reason to feel that way. As the dominoes of cannabis legalization begin to fall state by state, more and more opportunities are available for entrepreneurial franchisees who want to get in on the ground floor of this growing movement. There’s no better choice than Unity Rd.
The numbers are staggering. Cannabis soared to become an $18 billion-plus market in the US in 2020, and it’s expected to top $24 billion in 2021, according to cannabis market research firm BDSA. Five more states made cannabis legal in 2020 - Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, South Dakota, and Mississippi – and there are more on the way. Already, in the past six months Alabama, New Mexico, New York and Connecticut have approved legislation for adult-use or medicinal cannabis. Currently, 15 states, including DC, have legal cannabis markets and 36 states, including DC, have approved medical markets.
Savvy entrepreneurs recognize cannabis is a budding industry. It’s proving to be not only big business that can produce big tax dollars for states where it’s legal, but cannabis is a perfect blend for the franchise business model. Unity Rd. is the undisputed leader in bridging cannabis and franchising and taking it to the next level.
“We’re the first to bring cannabis to franchising,” says Justin Livingston, Unity Rd. VP of Development. “Our team has 120-plus years of collective background and experience and the passion to help franchise partners navigate their way to success.”
Unity Rd. is equipped to help operators enter the complex industry with ease by offering the knowledge, resources, and ongoing support needed to compliantly and successfully open and operate a dispensary. The brand has always been at the forefront of the industry, tracking where and when legalization has spread and finetuning a model that can be replicated to ensure success and compliance. There are many factors that make Unity Rd. a smart franchising choice.
This past year, Unity Rd. teamed up with Item 9 Labs, a premium cannabis producer and business consultation company that now gives Unity Rd. a trusted and dedicated supply chain partner.
"Beyond a deep product catalogue that offers best-in-class cannabis products, we’re gaining decades of experience in dispensary operations across several states," says Livingston.
The demand for cannabis products is surging to unprecedented levels and record sales. The coming months and years will undoubtedly bring additional cannabis law reform at the state and federal levels – opening opportunities for the industry to grow even more.
Unity Rd. is now looking for business partners and offering great new opportunities in markets where cannabis is either medicinally or recreationally legal. Whether you’re a long-time multi-unit franchise owner looking to diversify your portfolio or an entrepreneur looking for a great opportunity, Unity Rd. offers the safest way into the cannabis space for those who want to compete in an industry with incredible potential.
