BOSTON, Dec. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Zip Run, a leading social equity cannabis delivery platform, announced the approval of a Host Community Agreement (HCA) for its Delivery Operator License to begin cannabis deliveries from its Boston warehouse. This marks the first company to receive this license from the Boston Cannabis Board for wholesale cannabis delivery within the city limits of Boston.
“This latest approval means that consumers in Boston will soon be able to purchase the broadest array of high-quality cannabis products for delivery from our warehouse with just a click through our online platform,” said Gabe Vieira, CEO and co-founder of Zip Run. “We are grateful the Boston Cannabis Board has approved our application allowing Zip Run to pave the way for other entrepreneurs of color to successfully launch cannabis businesses in the Boston area and bring innovation to the industry.”
Zip Run’s direct-to-consumer cannabis deliveries from its downtown Boston warehouse could begin as early as March 2022. With its new facility, Zip Run will curate the largest and best selection of cannabis products from top cultivators in the state including flower, edibles, concentrates, tinctures, pre-rolls, topicals and accessories. The wholesale delivery model benefits customers since the product selection is larger than can be accommodated in a single store.
With its proprietary e-commerce software, Zip Run brings new technologies to the cannabis industry in Boston to enhance the pickup and delivery experience. The platform is a one-stop-shop that provides seamless, consumer-friendly ordering of cannabis products. Currently, consumers can order via Zip Run for pick up at over 10 dispensary partners in Mass.
Zip Run holds marijuana courier and marijuana delivery operator licenses – only available to social equity applicants in Massachusetts. With both licenses, the company can pick up and deliver through dispensary partners as well as buy wholesale products for delivery. Zip Run received its cannabis courier delivery license in May 2021.
