Cannabis Facility Construction Expands into West Virginia with Design-Build Projects for Harvest Care Medical
By renovating former banks and drive-thru restaurants, dispensaries will be drive-thru ready
CHICAGO, IL (MAY 9, 2022) – Cannabis Facility Construction (CFC), a national, full-service, cannabis design-build construction firm, is pleased to complete construction on a new Country Grown Cannabis medical dispensary for Harvest Care Medical in West Virginia. CFC is currently working on multiple design-build projects for Harvest Care. This Martinsburg location is a former bank building, making its existing drive-thru a logical choice for renovation to support customer demand for online ordering and speed of service once dispensary drive-thrus are permitted by cannabis regulations.
“We’re thrilled to enter the West Virginia cannabis market and partner with Harvest Care to support their entry into the emerging medical cannabis market,” said Andy Poticha, Founder and CEO at Cannabis Facility Construction. “Our clients value our longstanding cannabis design-build expertise and our ability to provide speed to market, which is essential to opening quickly and correctly.”
The new 2,650-square-foot Country Grown Cannabis medical dispensary is located at 1321 Edwin Miller Blvd in Martinsburg, WV in a former bank facility. The dispensary was designed to create a differentiated and welcoming customer experience with careful consideration given to ensure customer flow, easy-to-browse product displays and point of sale stations for speed of service and retail convenience. In addition to the retail space up front, the dispensary includes private consultation rooms for medical patients to discuss their needs with staff, secure vaults for inventory storage, back-office space, and a highly-advanced security system.
“Cannabis Facility Construction was a strategic design-build choice for us,” said Kevin Gibbs, Senior Vice President of Operations at Harvest Care Medical and Co-Founder of Merida Capital Holdings, a leading private equity fund in the medical cannabis space. “CFC’s extensive experience has positively supported our business and will allow us to efficiently start serving customers all across West Virginia in the near future.”
Cannabis Facility Construction has renovated, and is in the process of renovating, four Country Grown Cannabis dispensaries for Harvest Care Medical in West Virginia, including Martinsburg, Charles Town, Fairmont and Huntington.
