29 Jun ParcelPal Begins Cannabis on Demand Delivery
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – June 29th, 2017 – ParcelPal Technology Inc. (OTC: PTNYF) (CSE: PKG.CN) (FSE:PT0) (“ParcelPal” or the “Company) the Vancouver based on demand delivery company is pleased to announce they have successfully tested and have begun facilitating the delivery of medical cannabis to patients across Vancouver through a strategic partnership with the premium online dispensary, Birch + Fog (www.birchandfog.com).
Canada plans to legalize recreational cannabis before July 1, 2018, and the industry continues to steal headlines as this has created great opportunity for both companies and investors alike. In the green rush, the investment community has primarily been focused on the cannabis producers. It has been widely speculated that the market will soon sway to ancillary businesses that support and facilitate both the production and distribution of cannabis. With full legalization pending, and a relatively unsophisticated and progressive business space, the cannabis industry will reward those that can solidify their supply chain and increase their online presence to reach potential and returning customers.
With the ParcelPal integration, a simple click on the “add-to-cart” button and consumers are ready to check out just as if they were ordering a product from any other online store, with the addition of having the product delivered to them within the hour.
President and CEO Kelly Abbott states, “We’re excited to work with the Birch + Fog team in helping them to develop new product distribution tactics that they can apply to meet the demands of their customers.”
Abbott continues “With 25+ states and Canada moving forward with recreational legalization, ParcelPal is positioned for expansion opportunity in this rapidly maturing marijuana market among the other verticals the technology is suited for. We’re very excited to begin working in this growing industry and to start setting the precedents for delivery standards to Birch + Fog’s customers across Canada.”
“We are excited to work with ParcelPal on same day delivery for discerning consumers of our cannabis lifestyle products. We want our B+F people to experience more of the moments that matter to them, preferably within an hour of placing an order ” said Derek, B+F’s Chief Product Officer.
