Eaze, considered the nation’s largest cannabis delivery marketplace, today announced the launch of its first Eaze Dispensary store located in San Diego, Calif., and the acquisition of a second dispensary in Santa Ana, Calif. These are the company’s first dispensary storefronts after seven years of operating as a cannabis delivery service.
The announcement reflects Eaze’s strategic expansion over the past 20 months to multi-channel sales, expanding access for its two million registered customers to an expanding menu of licensed products via delivery, in-store, and pick up shopping. In August 2021, Eaze announced the acquisition of multi-state retail leader Green Dragon, initiating the company’s expansion into dispensary retail in Colorado and Florida.
“Expanding access to cannabis is at the core of Eaze’s mission, so we’re always working to meet consumers where they’re at,” said Eaze CEO Rogelio Choy.
Choy explained that addition of brick-and-mortar retail is a natural progression for the vertically integrated delivery giant. “The line between delivery and in-store shopping are a byproduct of how licensing is done, not a reflection of how consumers want to shop,” he said.
“We’ve always believed that delivery and brick-and-mortar go together beautifully, and bringing Green Dragon’s retail expertise into Eaze’s mix
