Cannabis licensing consultants do so much more than help you obtain retail license approval. Non-medical cannabis license approval is an important milestone for start-up cannabis stores in BC, and while it may be the highest hurdle, it’s not the only obstacle on the way to success. Once you have cannabis license application approval, it’s vital to plan, assess and rapidly change operational and marketing strategies as needed, or as licensing requires. That’s why working with a retail cannabis consultant is so important.
Thrive Liquor & Cannabis Advisors works with BC cannabis retailers throughout the life of the business as follows.
At this point, would-be licensees have many questions about cannabis license requirements, zoning and public consultation, securing a lease or purchasing an existing license and operation, and optimal store layouts. Understandably, most start-up principals don’t have the time or the expertise. A retail cannabis consultant brings clarity and the burden is lifted off the shoulders of the principal and/or partners.
We work differently than many consultants, who are often only involved until a cannabis license application is approved. We understand the importance of ongoing consultation after the start-up phase is complete for long-term success.
Finding the right sales associates takes experience. Thrive can provide employee acquisition services including job description writing, job posting and candidate screening. Once a candidate has been hired, we can provide cannabis license compliance training that ensures the employee follows practices that safeguard your hard-earned license.
Even a small layout change may mean your cannabis license requires an update to remain in compliance. Layout changes or renovations could inadvertently put your business out of compliance with the Liquor & Cannabis Regulation Branch (LCRB) licensing requirements. By working with a consultant during layout or renovation planning, you can rest assured your license will remain in good standing.
LCRB issues periodic policy additions and updates to existing policies. Many policy changes are inconsequential although you still need to understand them. Other policy additions and updates may require a change to your operation. Thrive cannabis consultants can keep you informed and notify you when policy changes require you to take some kind of action.
