VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (8 February 2019) – PRESS RELEASE – Weekend Unlimited Inc. has announced that its Canna Candy brand has signed an exclusive distribution deal with Infinity One LLC., to introduce its product beyond California, into the U.S. Northeast, Midwest and Southeast regions.
“This is an exciting step for Canna Candys and Weekend. It represents the first of many deals to expand into new markets with our products,” said Paul Chu, Weekend president and CEO. “The first order is for Canna Candys, 5 mg 99.6 percent Hemp Oil extract (0 percent THC) mixed fruit gummies in gummy packs containing 20 servings."
The agreement with Infinity One LLC to distribute Canna Candys products will begin with a rollout of one million gummies per month, with additional SKUs to follow beyond candies and gummies. The initial month’s purchase order is for US $350,000.
“Infinity One, LLC is proud to become a master dealer for Weekend Unlimited. The first month’s allotment of one million pieces of Canna Candys’ fruit gummies will be distributed through our sales channels and distribution network beginning in the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast,” said Rae Kim, president of Infinity One, LLC.
Following Weekend’s Consumer Packaged Goods strategy, Infinity One LLC, will focus on sales through supermarket chains, pharmacies and convenience stores.
“We have existing relationships with HSN, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and Amazon in addition to our vast indirect sales channels,” added Kim. “Most of our chain store accounts range from 200 to 400 retail locations. The plan we have developed with Weekend sees us expanding in the second phase to add edibles and beverage products to our product line as we expand distribution in these regions and add Texas in the coming months."
Subsequent orders will depend on the success of the products. The distribution agreement is for one year, with options to renew.
