ONE Cannabis Launches New Retail Brand, Unity Rd., Keeping Community at the Core

2019-09-27T10:32:27-04:00September 27th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

Primed to Redefine the Modern Cannabis Shopping Experience, Unity Rd. Envelopes the Spirit of Cannabis Through a Neighborly Purpose

DENVER – Imagine a place where neighbors from all walks of life can come together in a bright, warm hub that welcomes curiosity. A place that encourages goodwill and embraces an invigorating love for a natural, incredible plant that brings friends together to heal, share, play and create.

ONE Cannabis Group (“ONE” or “the Company”), a multi-state franchisor and vertically integrated cannabis operator, is making this place a reality with the launch of its retail brand: Unity Rd.

Grounded by current and future consumer wants and needs, Unity Rd. is set to redefine the modern cannabis shopping experience. A few highlights include:

  • An open-entry design that pours into a flexible, free-flowing floor plan that eliminates wait times and allows for both a self-guided approach throughout the store as well as enlightening consultation.
  • A designated store-within-a-store area blends in with the salesfloor for vendor pop-ups and product features.
  • Lifestyle posts are used across the length of the store to tell the brand’s story, including the founding a decade ago as Green Man Cannabis, journey to Unity Rd. and creating change through its Social Equity & Economic Development (SEED) program.
  • Each store has its own localized art wall created by a nearby artist as well as an iconic landscape image that spans the ceiling.
  • The vast variety of the highest-quality products are easily shopped by needs (e.g., relief, sleep and pain) as well as new products, best sellers and seasonal items.

Beyond physical features, at its core, the new retail brand is a catalyst for fostering community through the power of cannabis.

“We began this journey years ago as a simple company that grew a product we believed in for people it mattered to,” said the Denver-based Company’s CEO and Co-Founder Christian Hageseth, who founded Green Man Cannabis in 2009, which is the foundation of the retail franchise brand. “We were inspired by the medicinal power of cannabis to provide a healthy, natural alternative to pharmaceuticals, and put our heart and soul into the business – striving to be the very best for our clients, our co-workers, and our community. And while we continued to learn and grow, we wanted something more. A bigger dream. A bigger promise. That promise is Unity Rd.”

COO Mike Weinberger added, “With the launch of Unity Rd., our franchise and social equity partners are better positioned to stand out in the clouded marketplace and truly breathe the essence of what we stand for. Cannabis is a natural plant with near unlimited use as a medicinal healer, unquestionable command as a force for social goodwill, and unprecedented potential as a tool of economic empowerment that should be inclusive and accessible to all. Together, we need to embrace the power of the giving plant and focus on what it can do to help bring some balance back to society.”

ONE intensifies the strength of the plant through its franchise and social equity programs. These viable, impactful, and sustainable platforms create a smooth path to cannabis entrepreneurship with a level of support that the Company says doesn’t exist elsewhere in the industry. Franchise and SEED partners utilize ONE’s award-winning products, deep network of seasoned experts, and turnkey franchise blueprint to enter the complex industry with ease.

The Company began its franchise and social equity programs in early 2018 and has multiple agreements signed for development across the United States. The first Unity Rd. branded stores will open in the first half of 2020 in Denver, with store designs and a full brand launch projected to be unveiled at MJBizCon this December in Las Vegas.

The Unity Rd. logo and store prototype image can be downloaded here.

ONE Cannabis Group (“ONE” or “the Company”) is a Denver-based, vertically integrated cannabis company that’s making a name for itself as the bridge connecting the two previously disconnected worlds of cannabis and franchising. Across its brands, the Company covers several areas of cannabis-related business functions, including franchising, social equity, cultivation, consulting, real estate, retail operations and technology (point of sale). Denver’s award-winning Green Man Cannabis is among them. Its well-known for its connoisseur-grade craft cannabis and numerous Cannabis Cup wins. Recently, ONE became the first cannabis business to earn a Franchise Times Dealmakers award – a recognition presented to the boldest players driving mergers and acquisitions in franchising.

Chem-Dry Carpet and Floor Cleaning Announces Lebanon Master Franchise Agreement

2019-09-17T09:56:59-04:00September 17th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

International carpet-cleaning franchise continues to expand global footprint

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet and floor cleaning franchise, has signed a Master Franchise agreement for Lebanon with Beirut-based entrepreneurs Maha Hijazi and Camille El Zeinaty.

Hijazi and El Zeinaty are well known in Lebanon’s business community, as they have been providing high-quality cleaning services for more than 20 years. The success of that business spurred their interest in Chem-Dry, Hijazi said. “We have been providing cleaning services for residential and commercial spaces, and Chem-Dry has the systems and processes we need to expand outreach,” she said.

Chem-Dry is the world’s largest carpet, upholstery and hard-surface floor cleaning franchise, with nearly 3,500 franchises serving more than 11,000 homes and businesses a day in more than 55 countries. The innovative Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction process delivers a faster-drying, deeper and more environmentally friendly clean that appeals to home and business owners in all markets worldwide. Chem-Dry also provides cleaning and renewal services for tile and stone, granite countertops, leather and upholstery, air ducts and dryer vents.

Lebanon joins more than 55 other countries where Chem-Dry has awarded a Master Franchise, where a single franchisee owns the franchising rights to an entire region or country and has the right to develop as many franchise locations as they can in that region.

“We have about 60% of the cleaning market in Beirut, so starting there makes sense for us,” El Zeinaty explained. “Our portfolio is very diverse, and we have cleaned everything from five-star hotels to the United States embassy. In fact, we will be focusing on the new embassy now under construction and we hope to clean that as well with our Chem-Dry franchise.

Eventually they will expand outward in the northern part of the country and will be seeking potential franchise owners at that point. Both say it should be easy to find partners.

“The Lebanese people  enjoy quality furniture and carpets, and so they want to take good care of those investments,” El Zeinaty said. “We believe when they see all that Chem-Dry offers, they will be thrilled to become franchise owners as well as clients.”

“Chem-Dry is a legacy brand in the United States and around the world,” says Joe Manuszak, Vice President of Global Development. “Our 40 years of success is proof to entrepreneurs and investors  that Chem-Dry’s products and services will always be in demand.  Chem-Dry continues to help enthusiastic and talented people like Maha and Camille take their business goals to the next level.”
