Unity Rd. has announced its franchise expansion plans for the state of Oklahoma, which include helping entrepreneurs to enter the world of cannabis for the first time, as well as partnering with existing dispensaries through its Local Alliance Program.
Oklahoma’s cannabis market continues to grow, and in 2020 it more than doubled its 2019 sales with figures upward of $831m. As of February 7, 2021, Oklahoma had registered over 370,000 active patient licenses – roughly 10 per cent of the state’s population – and yet only 2,090 dispensaries are open and operational. There’s evidently much more room for growth.
“We’re keeping dispensary ownership local and thriving with the backing of a franchise system,” said Unity Rd.’s VP of franchise development, Justin Livingston. “The Local Alliance Program allows us to help existing dispensary operators learn from the experiences and best practices we’ve developed throughout our collective 120 years in cannabis. We’re offering the supportive network and tools they need to reach new heights and achieve their business goals.”
Unity Rd. is initially targeting Oklahoma City, Stillwater, and Tulsa for Oklahoma franchise expansion with at least 15 shops available across the state. The dispensary franchise is seeking partners who would benefit from the systems, process, and ongoing support the franchise offers.
Currently, Unity Rd. has multiple agreements signed with 13 entrepreneurial groups, who are in various stages of development nationwide.
“As part of the Unity Rd. network, our partners can operate their dispensaries more efficiently – resulting in more time to focus on growing the business rather than managing it,” added Livingston.
“It’s all part of our overarching goal to inspire confidence in the benefits of cannabis for all. We truly believe franchising will be the vehicle to help drive the cannabis industry forward – all while arming entrepreneurs across the country with the tools they need to be successful so that ownership and revenues stay local.”
