Christian Schenk, Chief Executive Officer at Driven Deliveries, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush! Driven Deliveries is one of California’s fastest growing online cannabis retailers and direct-to-consumer logistics companies. Founded by experienced technology and cannabis executives, the company provides e-commerce solutions, online sales, and on-demand cannabis delivery to 92% of California’s population. Driven’s success has led to record revenue for Q2 in 2020 and now sees the company offering legal cannabis consumers over 450 products and delivery to their door in less than 60 minutes.
With COVID-19 leading to a massive influx of cannabis consumers looking for delivery options, our hosts Anne and Phil wanted to sit down with Christian to get an idea of the uptick his business has seen in recent months. Christian also touches on Driven’s technology and the consumer trends his team has been following under the conditions of COVID-19. As cannabis delivery continues to gain acceptance in major markets, Christian and his team have their finger on the pulse of how these capabilities will transform the future of cannabis retail.
So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
