I am super excited to see the Friendly Stranger Brand grow like this,” said Robin Ellins, co-founder of Friendly Stranger.

“FSHC has an aggressive growth strategy and opening the doors to cannabis retail locations that are licensed to carry the Friendly Stranger brand is only the beginning.

We will work closely with the store owners to ensure that community integration and education are top priorities. As one of Canada’s most successful and longest standing Toronto-based cannabis culture stores, our team will be able to provide the licensees with valuable insights and training so that their locations reflect the goodwill and consistent high standards that Friendly Stranger is associated with,” said James Jesty, President of FSHC.

Additionally, with the recent opening of the Ontario cannabis retail market, the Company intends to apply for further licenses for stores under both the Friendly Stranger and Happy Dayz brands.
