Coffee Chain The Second Cup has recently announced plans to open a network of recreational marijuana dispensaries. The initial plan sees Second Cup opening dispensaries in Western Canada and then moving eastward.
The Mississauga headquarter-based Second Cup announced on Thursday plans to partner with National Access Cannabis Corp. to develop and operate a network of NAC-branded dispensaries across the country.
The partnership plan is for NAC to dispense cannabis and then will work with The Second Cup to “leverage Second Cup’s extensive Canadian retail footprint to construct retail stores,”.
What’s interesting is that The Second Cup has said that it’s possible that some Second Cup locations will be converted into coffee + cannabis shops.
“We’ll look to work with Second Cup to license select storefronts, utilizing our proven business model to deliver secure, safe and responsible access,” NAC’s CEO Mark Goliger said.
