Finding the right building for your cannabis dispensary is undoubtedly keyâ€¦ All the paperwork, licensing, rule following & financing is pressing as well, but the building is where you store the cash makers & begin your business! That was the most exciting step of the whole process, and i was actually buying something that was going to make me cash rather than just paying fees for papers.
I didn’t realize how hard it would be to choose a building.
I am so thankful that right from day one of this process I had hired a cannabis consultant to be with me. I had a building that was sufficient in price & I was getting the seller to lower it even more! My cannabis consultant immediately halted me & told me that I could not use the space, and when you are buying a cannabis dispensary, pay attention to the zoning restrictions; For example, in my area you can’t have a dispensary within a particular distance of a school, church, community center, library, park, basically where children will be present. The building I was going to buy was right next to a church. Thank goodness I found that out immediately. The cannabis consultant helped me track down the regular space, then he said that we needed to find a building that catered to our target audience. Both of us wanted to pay attention to the establishments around it. Is there parking? Is the community cannabis friendly? Is there competition nearby? All these things I never considered until my cannabis consultant pointed them out.
