Natural Life Franchise Corp., a retail chain with four Florida locations in Jacksonville, Tampa, and Tallahassee, is expanding to a franchise business model. Founded with the goal of helping those in need find alternative treatments for their ailments, Natural Life specializes in cannabidiol (CBD) products and other holistic plants such as kava, kratom, turmeric, and akuamma.
By early 2020, the company expects to have seven locations: a second location in downtown Tampa, a second location in Atlantic Beach (Jacksonville northeast), and a third in east Tallahassee. Two of these seven locations are expected to be franchises; target markets for further expansion include other areas in Florida, the Midwest, the Mid-Atlantic, and the West Coast, including California.
Throughout its stores, Natural Life offers more than 300 products and over 20 brands. Quality and safety are at the forefront, and the company ensures that brands are compliant with all upcoming 2020 regulations. All Natural Life products also carry liability insurance, which is unique in the CBD industry.
Staff at Natural Life are certified by the CBD Training Academy. Managers are required to take a CBD Coach Course through the Academy. The sales team is also trained on how to properly sell CBD, and help customers find the right product.
“Consumers are looking for a shopping experience that they can trust,” says Natural Life Founder Gabriel Suarez. “At Natural Life Franchise Corp., we set ourselves apart with our commitment to quality products that undergo third-party lab testing on a regular basis.”
