Canadian recreational cannabis franchise system Spiritleaf has opened new franchised retail cannabis stores in Edmonton (Clareview Crossing) and Sexsmith, Alta.
In addition, the brand has received a cannabis retail store licence from Alberta Gaming, Liquor, and Cannabis (the AGLC) for a franchised location in Cochrane, Alta.
“Our Spiritleaf brand is now leading Canada’s cannabis industry with the most retail stores in the country,” said Spiritleaf’s president and CEO, Darren Bondar. “We’re very pleased to have 37 Spiritleaf stores serving their communities with a premium shopping experience supported by our knowledgeable and talented staff.”
The franchise network includes locations in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. In Alberta alone, the company has 31 stores open with the Cochrane location now fully licensed and expected to open soon. Applications for the remaining 10 stores needed to achieve the AGLC’s stated maximum of 42 locations have been submitted to the agency with all units currently in the final development stages.
