I had a fully functional cannabis dispensary before COVID.
I had everything just the way I wanted it & did a great business, when the virus hit, nobody was coming into the store anymore, and suddenly nobody wanted to leave their houseâ€¦ Online ordering became a large thing, then people wanted curbside pick up & cannabis delivery.
I didn’t offer those services at the time & was losing thoUSnds of dollars each week. I tried setting it up myself & realized it was a daunting task. I couldn’t see how to add it & make it functional on the website. I didn’t guess where to get a car & check to make sure everything was all legal. I finally decided to call a recreational marijuana dispensary consultingâ€¦ This service sent a guy over to our store to help myself and others get everything set up. I swear this person could do anything. The marijuana consultant got our online ordering all set up. I cannot even take medical marijuana patients once they log in their medical weed card. It is a easy click of a button if they want curbside or cannabis delivery. The cannabis consultant got myself and others a car & hired cannabis delivery drivers for me. I kept a few of our team members on to do curbside side pick up. Once I got all the online ordering setup to go, our business flourished. I started seeing our old numbers again & felt great about our business. Once COVID goes away & I still offer those services, I am going to do well.
