Top 5 Tips for Cannabis Dispensary Openings

  1. Mobilize a design team and finish construction. Ensure workflow efficiency and security installation is implemented effectively.
  2. Hire qualified staff and train them onsite. Provide them with an industry-specific Employee Handbook.
  3. Select, train, and implement POS software and cash management workflows well ahead of time. Also, make sure you secure solid banking relationships.
