DENVER -- In the business of growing and selling legal weed, Christian Hageseth is a trail blazer of sorts.
“Cannabis is the fastest growing industry in the world right now,” Hageseth said.
Hageseth is the founder and owner of One Cannabis, a new concept that offers pot shop franchise opportunities for all those "potpreneurs."
“This is really for people that are interested in getting into the space that have some resources, but understand that they don’t know enough about operating in cannabis,” Hageseth said.
As he leads us down the stairs from his office into the massive indoor grow house, you get the sense this one acre of space is a big deal.
“It’s one of the largest marijuana grow rooms in the world,” said Hageseth.
And in an industry of constant evolution, Hageseth’s team is offering a roadmap - a clear path to capitalizing on the current green rush. A "cannafranchise" if you will.
“The fact that we’re doing it now in cannabis is just a natural offshoot of how business is done in America. Every industry has franchise opportunities,” he said.
Think of it as a turn-key solution to help spark your business and cut through the smoke.
One Cannabis provides help with the regulatory/licensing process, banking, business plans, finding a good location and even hiring the right employees.
“We help them do everything,” Hageseth said. “The franchising model is such a common way to grow a business. And it absolutely, just makes sense. We have thousands of relationships in cannabis. So, you only need one. Us.”
