CEO, Mike Weinberger. “As one of the only true national cannabis franchise concepts in the U.S., participating in the industry’s most well-regarded events allows us to share how the franchise model is the vehicle for entrepreneurs to open and operate their own successful and compliant cannabis business.”

Unity Rd. will be participating in the following franchise conferences and events through May 2023:

  • International Franchise Association (IFA) Annual Convention: The IFA convention will be taking place February 27-March 1 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and allows attendees the opportunity to experience franchise-specific business development ideas, strategies for personal growth, and unique networking situations. On Tuesday, February 28 from 10:30 a.m.-noon PT, the franchise’s Vice President of Franchise Operations Tracy Timko will be facilitating a Thought Leadership Round Table session on the topic “Exit Strategy Support For Franchisees” and Vice President of Franchise Development Justin Livingston will be curating “Elements of a Successful Franchise Sales Team.” In 2021, Unity Rd. became the first concept of its kind to become a member of the organization.
  • International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) Virtual Franchise Summit: The two-day virtual event will be held April 3-4 for IFPG members and franchise executives to discuss timely topics impacting the franchising industry and strategies for working with multi-unit investors, among others.

  • Multi-Unit Franchising Conference (MUFC): The Unity Rd. team will be exhibiting at MUFC from April 25-28 at the Caesars Forum in Las Vegas.

Marriott in San Antonio, focusing on connecting consultants, franchise partners and suppliers in the franchise community. Unity Rd. has exclusively partnered with BAI as the first and only national franchise concept in the U.S. cannabis space and will be sharing the benefits of the franchise opportunity with attendees.

Cannabis is a highly regulated industry with laws that differ from state-to-state and change day by day. These market conditions make it next to impossible for industry newcomers to enter – let alone operate a successful business. Unity Rd. breaks down these barriers, helping independent business owners bring the benefits of the growing industry to their hometown to strengthen their communities, invest in local programs and build a legacy.

The dispensary franchise is actively seeking qualified partners who would benefit from the systems, processes and ongoing support it offers. To learn more about the Unity Rd. franchise opportunity, contact franchise@unityrd.com, call 720-923-5262 or visit unityrd.com.
