Cru Hemp Lounge is not a bar or a nightclub. It is a lifestyle lounge that is catching the eye of not only the patrons but franchise developers alike. In the last twelve months, the brand has signed new franchise agreements in cities all over the country.
New franchise owner lifestyle lounges are open or soon to be opening in these regions:
- Atlanta ( 5 locations)
- West Palm Beach
- St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.
This is the Cru Hemp Lounge concept:
- 1,500-2,000 sq.ft. footprint
- Limited staff
- Premium cocktails
- Tapas food
- Smokable CBD flower
- CBD gummies
Per company officials, customers are limited to enjoy the Cru lounge for a two hour visit. There are 3 two hour blocks of lounge time seven days a week.
The startup investment for a Cru Hemp Lounge ranges between $75,000.00 to $125,000.00 excluding the liquor license. Due to the high amount of Covid closures, the company is currently taking advantage of all the available locations that are already unfitted, and able to open stores 90 days from signing leases.
CEO Dennis McKinley stated, “We knew with the popularity of the CBD and Hemp products being mixed with a lounge style business model that we had something. We never imagined it would be as big as it is.”
When cannabis becomes legal, the company is positioning itself to be a major brand name throughout the United States with an established V.I.P. customer base already in place.
