FinCanna’s West County Brands Adds Key Delivery Service to Product Rollout
Vancouver, British Columbia, March 24, 2022 - FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) (“the Company”)(CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) an investment company focused on the U.S. licensed cannabis industry, is pleased to announce that its investee company, QVI Inc., operating as West County Brands, has added Royal Greens, an Oakland California based licensed delivery service to its distribution team.
Royal Greens has joined FinCanna’s sales & marketing partner Petalfast and industry-leading distributor Calyx Brands, to further expand West County Brands distribution footprint in support of its product rollout of its MYTHC Life™ brand and its joint venture with Cherry Kola Farms, an award-winning producer of premium cannabis products. Delivery service is an essential component of the Company’s brand development and retail sales strategy as it is another avenue of meeting consumer demand and increasing sales. Additionally, delivery is increasingly important as there are significant areas of the California market currently underserved by retail dispensaries due to the restrictive nature of certain local regulations regarding dispensary license approvals. Licensed home delivery services like Royal Greens are positioned to reach these underserved markets.
Royal Greens serves an area within a 100-mile radius from the city of Oakland and has a client base of more than 20,000 active consumers. Royal Greens is firmly positioned to expand sales of West County Brands’ high quality and disruptively priced products, seeing them as an excellent fit for their growing customer base.
Annie Holman, Co-Founder, and CEO of QVI, said, “Royal Greens is a strong addition to our distribution team. Getting our big-league brands MYTHC Life™, GOTHIC Life™, and Huckleberry™, as well as our joint venture partner Cherry Kola Farms’ products to California customers is imperative. As the demand for our brands continues to grow, our first-class service with Royal Greens will be instrumental in ensuring this happens.”
Andriyko Herchak, CEO of FinCanna l, said, “I’m thrilled to see the ongoing development of West County Brands on a week-to-week basis. From producing great in-demand products to the expansion of our distribution footprint with the highly regarded delivery service, Royal Greens, Annie Holman, Larry Shaeffer, and their team at West County Brands continue to excel. Scaling our business and driving increased revenues are dependent on superior distribution coverage across California, and the addition of Royal Greens and their impressive customer base supports this initiative.”
