A Budding Franchise Concept with Christian Hageseth

Christian Hageseth, CEO and Chairman of ONE Cannabis Group, has over 8 years of experience in the Colorado legal cannabis industry and more than 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur. In 2009, he founded Green Man Cannabis and by 2016 had four retail dispensary locations and two grow operations in Colorado.

 

While operating Green Man, Christian recognized the next step in the evolution of the retail dispensary experience: a cannabis brand that was for every consumer along with a chance for other entrepreneurs to use this brand and his expertise. In 2017, he formed ONE Cannabis as the brand in retail cannabis. Furthermore, he is the Founder & President of American Cannabis Partners, author of Big Weed: An Entrepreneur’s High Stakes Adventures in the Budding Legal Marijuana Industry, and six-time winner of Denver’s High Times Cannabis Cup.

[1:01] Josh introduces today’s guest, Christian Hageseth, the founder and CEO of ONE Cannabis.

[3:11] Welcome to Franchise Euphoria, Christian Hageseth!

[3:36] Christian gives a brief overview of what led him to the franchise cannabis industry.

[6:58] ONE Cannabis has sold units in Ohio, Colorado, and Michigan.

[7:52] The cannabis industry has actually been around for a while now California having legalized it in 1996 and Colorado in 1999.

[9:07] One of the biggest challenges with a cannabis business is getting financial backing through banks and credit unions.

[13:36] ONE Cannabis is a fully-vertical marijuana business meaning that they are involved in the process from cultivating the product to retailing it.

[16:40] ONE Cannabis didn’t even begin considering the franchise model until they had eight years of experience in the industry and fully ensuring they had mastered their craft.

[22:13] Currently, ONE Cannabis is focused on expanding into California. Once they overcome some franchise registration hurtles, they will benefit from having ample amount of cultivation areas for their product.

[24:36] For their franchised locations, the ideal structure is having their franchisees be the head of the business operations but with a management team in place beneath them who have relevant industry experience.

[27:00] Christian looks forward to adding the real estate component to the business since one of the biggest challenges in the cannabis business is getting the right location.

Started listening to Josh's podcast after the wife and I decided to buy a franchise and I quickly went through about 200 episodes on 1.5x & 2x, before signing on to purchase a franchise. Josh's info was an invaluable part of our decision to buy, and after listening to so many episodes, I felt like I knew and trusted him on a personal level, so it was a no-brainer to enlist his services when it came time to review the franchise agreement. Josh was super easy to talk to and very empathetic to our needs, and being first time business owners, we needed all the empathy we could get. Josh helped us negotiate a great deal with the franchisor and we were very happy with his services. Great podcast, great guy, great service to anyone involved in the franchise world!
