U.S. Dispensary Franchise Featured in Six-Page Spread on Cannabis in Leading International Franchise Publication

June 26, 2020 // // DENVER – As the cannabis retail space surges across North America, Global Franchise magazine took a look at how the franchise model is playing a part in the green rush in its latest issue. The six-page spread includes interviews with franchise industry veterans and Unity Rd. executives Mike Weinberger and Justin Livingston on their experience developing a cannabis franchise, current state of the cannabis industry and the latest happenings with Unity Rd. – the only U.S. cannabis dispensary franchise.

The articles are featured in the 30th issue of the publication and can be read online at

“The number one thing that’s hurting new [cannabis] franchisor entrants is figuring out how to actually be a franchisor in this industry,” Livingston said. “You really need deep industry experience in cannabis, and also in franchising. It really takes having the best of both of those worlds to navigate each individual complication.”

Since its inception, Unity Rd. has been teaching the cannabis industry about franchising and the franchise industry about cannabis. Launched in 2018 with its history rooted in over a decade of Colorado cannabis operations, Unity Rd. offers franchisees the knowledge, resources, and ongoing support needed to compliantly and profitably operate a dispensary. The marijuana franchise currently has more than 30 stores in development across seven U.S. states.

For those interested in learning more about Unity Rd. franchise opportunities, the Unity Rd. team is hosting 30-minute Zoom presentations over the next few weeks that walk participants through the current state of the U.S. cannabis industry and take a deep dive into the Unity Rd. franchise opportunity. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session and take place:

  • Wednesday, July 1 at 11 a.m. MT / 1 p.m. ET
  • Wednesday, July 8 at 4 p.m. MT / 6 p.m. ET
