How and when did your dispensary start up?
We obtained Frosted Leaf in 2013 under new management that completely changed what the dispensary life is to this day. We remodeled and had the first self-serving dispensary in Colorado.
What’s the story behind the name of your dispensary?
Frosted Leaf is pretty self-explanatory. The trichomes of the beautiful flower speak for themselves.
What does your dispensary offer customers that they can’t find anywhere else?
A self-serving kiosk. If you’re a person who doesn’t like to wait in lines and you know what you want, it’s very simple. We do have very bright sales associates for those who need help finding the right strain for them. You can order online before you arrive, and your products are already set aside for you. We include tax in all of our prices, so you won’t ever be surprised by extra taxing.
How has the cannabis industry changed since you have been in the business? Where would you like to see it go?
We started Frosted Leaf before recreational marijuana was legal. The biggest change was seeing our customer base grow. Since recreational marijuana, we’ve see a lot of new faces that come back to us again, day after day. We would like see our customer base grow even larger. Our customers are why we are here, and we plan to make sure everyone gets exactly what they need whether it’s for pain, illness or pleasure.
What are the biggest challenges you face in this industry as a dispensary? . . . Biggest joys?
Our biggest challenges would be the rapid growth in this business. You see dispensaries on every corner now, so sometime’s it’s difficult to adapt to what the next guy over is selling and at what price point. Sometimes demand is high, but we always do what we can to make sure we always have the supply. The biggest joys is this industry and Frosted Leaf is ever-changing, and we are quick to be the first one’s that make that change whatever it may be.
What is the one thing you want customers to know about your dispensary?
We are very inviting. We offer a rewards program, in which every $1 you spend you rack up five points. These points can get you awesome rewards, such as discounts for products, flower, edibles. You don’t need to sign anything, just set up an account and every single time you shop, you earn rewards.
If someone wanted to open a dispensary and get their feet wet in the industry, what advice or counsel would you give them?
It takes a lot a work—you need to start with licensing, and start with people you trust in the industry.
What is the most important thing you hope to accomplish while in the cannabis community?
We hope to make people feel welcome, and give them the opportunity to explore that fact that cannabis is legal in Colorado.
