"This quarter we executed our strategy with speed and agility,” said Peter Horvath, CEO of Green Growth Brands.
“We made great progress towards establishing our leadership in the industry, by setting new standards for consumer experiences and product. We launched Seventh Sense, began our unprecedented big-bang expansion into hundreds of prime mall-based CBD shops, and grew performance at our premier dispensary, The+Source Las Vegas, through implementing margin accretive retail practices.”
Horvath also highlighted the transaction with Just Healthy transaction allowing the company to enter Massachusetts, and said Green Growth planned to open new dispensaries in Nevada this year.
"As an early-stage company, just over a year-in, when most competitors have been operating for 4-8 years, we are proud of the accomplishments we have made,” Horvath said. “We will continue to drive towards profitability."
