PHOENIX (March 25, 2022) – Unity Rd., the national cannabis dispensary franchise from Item 9 Labs Corp. (OTCQX: INLB), announced today that it will be exhibiting at the 2022 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference from March 29 -April 1 in Las Vegas.
The dispensary franchise’s Vice President of Franchise Development, Justin Livingston, and Franchise Development Manager, Erica Tarnowski, will be at booth No. 515 to meet with multi-unit franchisees who are curious about business opportunities in cannabis.
The annual conference is geared toward multi-unit and multi-brand franchisees looking to build or expand their business. Attendees can expect in-depth workshops, presentations and leadership tracks designed for franchisors and franchisees invested in multi-unit franchising. Conference content will range from growth strategies to success stories from top leaders in the industry to top trends.
As the first of its kind to join the International Franchise Association (IFA), the industry trailblazer is bridging cannabis and franchising with a proven roadmap to set entrepreneurs up for success. The Unity Rd. team offers franchise partners the support, resources and tools necessary to thrive in the complex industry. From navigating state regulations to supply chain and financing, the cannabis dispensary franchise is helping keep dispensary ownership in the hands of local entrepreneurs.
“Multi-unit operators are realizing the exponential growth and potential of the cannabis industry and see it as a strategic way to diversify their portfolio,” said Livingston. “Legal medicinal and adult-use consumption is becoming increasingly popular with more states legalizing its usage every year. Cannabis is already a $25B industry – and we are just at the beginning.”
Launched in 2018, Unity Rd. continues to bring awareness on the benefits of franchising in cannabis as the first true U.S. dispensary franchise and currently has shops operating in Boulder, Colorado and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The pipeline is filled with additional signed agreements from 20 entrepreneurial groups who are in various stages of development across the U.S.
Unity Rd. offers a direct route for cannabis entrepreneurs interested in staking their claim in an industry that is bursting with potential. The dispensary franchisor’s time-tested Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and experienced team, with a combined 120-plus years of cannabis experience, guide franchise partners through every operational function of the business – from securing a license to assisting with cash flow, product selection or changing regulations.
