PHOENIX, Apr 14, 2021 (BSW) -While its outlets come to life on National Cannabis Day (April 20) with DJs playing and customers enjoying free food, giveaways and a chance to win a Ford Mustang GT, the Mint Dispensary will seal April 20 with a historic milestone: it will change its name to Mint Cannabis.
“As we have grown, we have become much more than a dispensary,” said Eivan Shahara, CEO of Brightroot Inc., parent company of Mint Cannabis, a multi-state cannabis company with headquarters in Arizona. “Mint Cannabis best represents our vision and mission as we install high-tech grow centers, launch innovative products, enter new markets, and pioneer cutting-edge industry advancements – all while improving access to high-quality cannabis. for patient and adult use “.
The Mint has launched innovations, unprecedented in the market, such as the opening of the first cannabis kitchen in the US In addition, it is a promising company in the field of cannabis nationally, since recently, the International Commercial Cannabis Awards (the International Commercial Cannabis Awards) gave it the designation “The Most Innovative Medical Cannabis Dispensary”.
The Mint recently opened its third Arizona retail store in the greater Phoenix area. At 5,000 square feet, it is the largest in the city of Phoenix and the second largest in Arizona. The Mint’s 12,000-square-foot flagship store in Tempe is the largest in the state and the third largest in the country.
The Mint plans to open more retail stores in Phoenix this year as it expands to other states. In October, a The Mint retail store opened in Kalamazoo, Michigan. New stores and farms will be added later this year in Clare, Portage, Coldwater and Monroe. In addition, approved plans are underway to open other businesses and farms in Missouri and Massachusetts.
To keep up with the pace of growth, The Mint is running a massive month-long virtual recruiting drive to increase staff by 50% nationwide. The openings, coupled with patient and customer demand, drive the need to increase The Mint’s staff for business and administrative operations.
“This year, April 20 has an even more special meaning as we contemplate not only the advancement of the industry, but also the growth and progress of this past year,” Shahara said. “At the same time, we always look to the future, not just in terms of growth; we look for ways to continue to break stigmas, to support patients and to give back to the communities we serve.”
Last year, the state of Arizona listed marijuana dispensaries as essential businesses and gave them designations similar to those of pharmacies. This led The Mint to incorporate several new services, including online ordering, drive-thru service, a curbside pick-up program, as well as the opportunity to interact virtually with patients to prevent homelessness and boredom that they may have experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, The Mint started virtual recruitment campaigns to help people looking for new job opportunities.
