Interested in Franchising
a Franny’s Farmacy?

Our Story is Your Story

In less than one year, Franny’s Farmacy has grown from a seed in the mind of its founders, to a full-fledged East Coast cannabis authority.  Expanding from one local Asheville, NC location to over half a dozen dispensaries across North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina, and Connecticut – with many more on the way for the first half of 2020.

Franny’s worked with FMS Franchise Team to create a world-class franchising package throughout the middle part of 2019.  Franny’s Farmacy’s first franchise location in Athens, GA opened in December, 2019.  Quickly obtaining momentum, a Hickory, NC also launched.  On the heels of this growth, Frannys will open it’s 3rd location in Clemson, SC in early Spring 2020.  A 4th franchisee developed a high-end Franny’s Farmacy concept in Westport, Connecticut’s iconic Bedford Square, just a short drive from New York City.  It is set to open around Memorial Day 2020.

Full-spectrum cannabis derivatives had a revitalization in 2019.  Valued and promoted by doctors and patients alike, CBD is one of many of these derivatives to be considered a revolutionary, non-psychoactive substance.  As a result, Cannabis and CBD businesses continue to reach new heights as one of the fastest growing industries in America.

$14 billion dollars of projected growth by 2026 – in cannabinoid-based products alone.  And it doesn’t stop there!  Cannabis has the potential to revolutionize industries like textiles, building materials, plastic, fuel and others as well.

Considering a Cannabis / CBD franchise?

The Franny’s Difference

Franny’s controls their entire CBD supply chain: farms, processing plants, manufacturing, and distribution (which is rare) – ensuring consistency, quality and availability – from plant to sale.There are many CBD suppliers out there, from small businesses to corporate giants. Small businesses can struggle to support demand and provide consistently high quality products. Corporate giants, aside from lacking soul, often source low quality, un­regulated, industrially manufactured CBD from impoverished countries, to keep profits high.
  • Franny’s Farmacy businesses are based on years of experience and knowledge and inturn providing value to their Cannabis and CBD products that is trusted and supported by their successful eCommerce and franchise dispensary model.

Who is Franny?

Still Not Convinced?

Consider our additional competitive advantages:

Lower Costs
  • Franny’s franchises do not have the barriers to entry that medical or recreational cannabis companies do (high license costs, limited availability).
  • Franny’s executive team can assist with all levels of getting started, including: real estate speculation, build-out, staffing, inventory, insurance, banking, hiring, training etc..
Greater Abilities to Market & Sell
  • Franny’s is a woman-owned business and the first woman-owned hemp farm in the state of NC in 75 years.  We get fantastic national press- and were recently featured on PBSNewsHour (while in business less than a year).
  • Franny’s CBD franchises target the wellness community and a wide range of consumers, given its products are not psychoactive.  Larger audiences = larger spending.
  • Franny’s is living wage certified, with no middle-men in the supply chain, ensuring ethical profitability and marketability of your franchise.
  • We allow you a 50/50 split of online net profits from your protected zip codes and you also own all the rights to future wholesale accounts within the same zip codes.
Higher Quality = Greater Brand Loyalty & Spend:
  • Franny’s offers high quality, full-spectrum hemp oil, locally sourced with high standards controlled end-to-end in the supply chain.  CBD competition typically offers CBD isolate imported from foreign sources, which are unregulated and open to health risks.
  • With the majority of Franny’s customers using its CBD products for health and wellness, quality translates to customer loyalty, with consistent purchases over time (think subscriptions) and high average order values (greater revenue).
