COOKIES Establishes DeLand, Florida, Headquarters

COOKIES LLC, a leading provider of top-of-the-line cannabis products, will locate a headquarters facility in DeLand, Florida. The $100 million project is expected to create 400 jobs.

The company, which acquired one of Florida’s 22 medical marijuana treatment center licenses last year, will grow, cultivate and distribute its product from the Northwest Industrial Business Park.

“COOKIES will be redeveloping one of our largest unutilized properties in the city’s Northwest Industrial Business Park,” said Nick Conte, Economic Development Manager for the City of DeLand. “The company has chosen the DeLand location as its operational hub for the state of Florida and beyond, and we couldn’t be happier to have them as part of our community. Additionally, the company will be utilizing 20 acres of undeveloped industrial property as part of its new construction plans, which includes the hiring of over 200+employees as part of their first phase.”

As part of its Florida expansion plan, COOKIES and its family of brands is building a vertically integrated medical marijuana treatment center that will provide patients throughout the state a wide variety of high-quality products, city officials said. Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers, Florida's official designation for vertically integrated cultivation, processing and dispensing of medical cannabis, are the only authorized outlets for medical cannabis in the state.

COOKIES, founded in 2012, has an established presence in medical and recreational cannabis markets across the U.S. and internationally, with 43 retail locations located globally. The company is the only minority-owned and controlled brand to own a Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinic (MMTC) license.
