Cannabis retailer Tokyo Smoke and Uber Canada have announced an exclusive partnership to provide a new way to order cannabis in Ontario.
UberEats has created a dedicated section on its digital marketplace for Tokyo Smoke’s virtual stores. Consumers can place orders for the brand’s product and accessories on the UberEats app, and then pick up their purchase at the respective Tokyo Smoke stores. According to a media release, the company is the first in Canada’s retail cannabis industry to list itself on UberEats.
All orders will be packaged within an hour of being placed, so consumers are able to receive their items quickly.
“Tokyo Smoke is thrilled to partner with Uber Canada on this innovative offering for our customers, bringing them high quality products and the very best customer experience,” said Mark Hillard, vice-president operations, Tokyo Smoke. “As a market leader in innovation and a platform used by so many Canadians, we believe this is the ideal next offering that can be done safely and conveniently on the Uber Eats app.”
“We are partnering with industry leaders like Tokyo Smoke to offer safe, convenient options for people in Ontario to purchase legal cannabis,” said Lola Kassim, general manager of UberEats Canada. “By combining a streamlined ordering process through the UberEats app with Tokyo Smoke’s in-person pickup service, we’re creating a new end-to-end experience for responsible cannabis ordering across the province.”
