The owners have created a business operation that requires up to 2 people to operate successfully, thereby significantly lowering overheads. They`ve used education, along with in-store and online experiences to make cannabis more approachable. Their menu is very simple through quality curation and their in-store experience activates all senses through smell, atmosphere, sound and lighting. The location was strategically chosen in the downtown core of Stratford. Stratford brings in over $65 million a year in sales from visitors to the city and the Stratford Festival. ⁠
