Meal kit services are used by busy young professionals, for anyone during times of extra stress (such as dealing with a family emergency or caring for a newborn) and people who don’t want (or know how) to cook.
The cannabis industry is innovative and resourceful…businesses rarely miss a trend. Which could explain why THC-infused cannabis food delivery services are quietly launching in legal states around the country.
Meal Delivery Services: The Numbers
Meal delivery kits have become lucrative businesses in recent years. The industry raked in over 4 billion dollars worldwide in 2020 and is projected to almost double by 2024.
Pair this with the boom in cannabis edibles which are projected to reach over 4 billion dollars in the U.S. and Canada by 2022.
The Logistics Of Launching A THC Infused Meal Delivery Services Business
Despite the impressive potential, the market for THC infused meal delivery services remains quiet. A few restaurants have shifted with COVID, offering cannabis meal kits for diners to make at home, but there aren’t many traditional “Blue Apron” look-alikes in the cannabis industry yet.
The logistics behind launching one is part restaurant based, part cannabis business based.
- Baking and edibles supplies
- A fully licensed restaurant space complete with full, industrial-sized kitchen
- Access to a cannabis lab to complete testing for edibles & processing (or build your own)
- Shipping and packaging products and supplies
In certain states (especially Oregon and Colorado), the edibles market is crowded and busy. Niching down into a specific area, such as a THC infused meal delivery service can give you an edge.
Prepare for the next cannabis trend.
