Cresco Labs, one of the largest vertically integrated multistate cannabis operators in the United States, today announced their partnership with over 90 local restaurants across eight of its operational states to deliver lunches daily to its retail and manufacturing staff.
On a daily basis, Cresco is purchasing, picking up and delivering more than 650 lunches to its workforce while doing what it can to help keep dozens of local restaurants remain active during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cresco Labs is partnering with over 250 local restaurants in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to deliver lunches daily to team members at its cultivation facility in Brookville and CY+ dispensary in Pittsburgh.
“Many of the restaurants around our stores and facilities are locally owned, and we know their businesses are being devastated by the COVID-19 outbreak. As stewards of the communities we operate in, we saw an opportunity to support our neighbors and help combat the economic impact of the pandemic on their restaurants by placing daily orders—all while also taking care of our team members; the most important part of our organization. In an otherwise challenging environment, we will continue to pursue win-win-win scenarios like this,” said Charlie Bachtell, CEO and Co-founder at Cresco Labs.
