Green Thumb Partners With Circle K Convenience Chain In Key Florida Market

October 25, 2022

Illinois-based multi-state operator Green Thumb has struck a deal with convenience chain Circle K to expand its medical cannabis footprint in the booming Florida market. Through a lease agreement with Circle K, Green Thumb plans to launch a “test and learn” phase of the rollout next year with approximately 10 “RISE Express” branded dispensaries adjacent to Circle K stores in various Florida locations.

Green Thumb will lease space from Circle K in Florida, where the convenience chain currently operates approximately 600 locations. The “RISE Express” stores will offer branded cannabis products including Rythm premium flower, Dogwalkers pre-rolls, Incredibles gummies, and &Shine vapes.

“The opening of RISE Express stores at Circle K locations is a game-changer. Convenience is a strong channel in retail, and people want more access to cannabis,” said Green Thumb chairman and CEO Ben Kovler. “The new RISE Express model is a huge step forward in making it easier and more efficient for patients to purchase high-quality cannabis as part of their everyday routine when stopping by their local convenience store.”
