Dispensary franchise to connect with multi-unit, multi-brand entrepreneurs interested in diversifying their portfolio
Unity Rd., the first national cannabis dispensary franchise in the U.S., announced today that the brand will be exhibiting at the 2023 Multi-Unit Franchising Conference (MUFC) from April 25-28, 2023, at Caesars Forum in Las Vegas.
The dispensary franchise’s Vice President of Franchise Development, Justin Livingston, and his team will be at booth No. 2037 to meet with entrepreneurs who are seeking to diversify their business portfolio with opportunities in the cannabis industry.
MUFC is geared toward multi-unit and multi-brand franchisees looking to build or expand their business and achieve their growth goals. Attendees can expect in-depth workshops, presentations and leadership tracks—featuring growth strategies, success stories and more—all designed for franchisors and franchisees invested in multi-unit franchising.
Launched in 2018, Unity Rd. offers a direct route for aspiring entrepreneurs interested in entering the budding industry that is expected to reach $48 billion in the next three years, according to cannabis data firm BDSA. The dispensary franchise’s time-tested Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and expert team, with a combined 250-plus years of cannabis and franchise experience, offer franchise partners the support, resources and tools necessary to thrive in the complex space through every operational function of the business.
“The cannabis industry is exploding with growth, and it's a truly exciting time to be a part of it. With more and more states legalizing both medicinal and recreational use, the industry presents a tremendous opportunity for multi-unit franchisees looking to expand their portfolio,” said Livingston. “The potential for success and impact is massive, and we're thrilled to see so many people taking advantage of this exciting moment in history.”
Cannabis is a highly regulated industry with laws that differ from state to state and change day by day. These market conditions make it next to impossible for industry newcomers to enter—let alone operate a successful business. Unity Rd. breaks down these barriers, helping independent business owners bring the benefits of the growing industry to their hometown to strengthen their communities, invest in local programs and build a legacy.
“The operational functions of running a dispensary are strikingly comparable to businesses in other industries, such as food and beverage, making it a viable option for current franchisees to seamlessly diversify with unwavering support,” added Livingston. “Investing in cannabis offers the possibility of significant economic impact in local communities, enabling entrepreneurs to create a lasting family legacy for future generations.”
The dispensary franchise is actively seeking qualified partners who would benefit from the systems, processes and ongoing support it offers. To learn more about the Unity Rd. franchise opportunity, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, call 720-923-5262 or visit unityrd.com.
