Item 9 Labs Corp.'s Dispensary Franchise Expands NE Footprint into 2 New States – Inside NoVA

PHOENIX, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Item 9 Labs Corp. (OTCQX: INLB) (the “Company”)—a vertically integrated, cannabis dispensary franchisor and operator that produces premium, award-winning products—today announced continued development of its cannabis dispensary franchise brand, Unity Rd., across the Northeastern United States.

Dish Patel and his business partner will join the strong list of three franchise groups that have signed with Unity Rd. to bring the brand to New Jersey – they’re all awaiting legislation to clear them for development.

– Virginia – As investors line up for the opportunity to bring Unity Rd.’s business model to their communities, Laurin Wallace, along with two business partners, signed on recently to bring a Unity Rd. to the Old Dominion state. 

Maine – Unity Rd. also supported their Maine franchise group in securing a lease and are now working with them on securing a dispensary license. This group was originally planning on developing in Massachusetts but pivoted to pursue opportunities in Maine to break into the burgeoning industry sooner. The state’s adult-use market launched in October 2020 and has been flourishing. This past August, it exceeded $10 million in sales for the first time in one month.
