Puff N Stuff Glass
10241 Bridgeport Way SW, Lakewood
How would you describe your company? What is your specialty?
I would describe our company as “limitless.” As far as a specialty, well I would say that we are bringing quality pipes and accessories to the area that are affordable, funky and fun.
What do you offer consumers/clients that others don’t?
Our Lakewood location is going to offer memberships and glass insurance like our Tacoma location. After seeing its popularity in Tacoma we decided that we would continue that service here.
How and why did your company start up?
Well that’s kind of funny, someone once made a joke that this was Michael’s (one of the owners) “pipe dream.” And here we are today opening our second shop. After many years of working for others it was time to do what we are passionate about, which is helping the community with their medical needs. The pipes and accessories are just the icing on the cake.
With the changing landscape of MMJ and recreational cannabis, what do you see as the biggest challenges to your progress as a company? Any advantages?
The biggest disadvantage to the Lakewood shop is that there is there is a moratorium in the city of Lakewood prohibiting cannabis being sold. We are still super stoked to be bringing pipes and accessories to the area.
What are the goals and vision moving forward, for your company? Where do you see your company in five years?
Our goals are to continue to open up more shops! Why would we stop with just two? In five years I hope to be sitting on a beach with our families knowing that we have built a Puff N Stuff/ Kronic Connection empire!
What words of advice would you offer anyone seeking to enter the world of cannabis business? More specifically . . . what is unique to this type of work / this industry, in your opinion?
This is not a business for the weakhearted. People will disappoint you, take advantage of you and you have to get right back up and continue moving forward. Do your research, this is also an expensive endeavor, but probably the most rewarding experience any of us have had.
What do you hope to accomplish in the MMJ industry?
I hope that by all of us continuing to do what we have to do to keep open, that the government realizes that marijuana is never going away. This is something that people need to quit being so uptight about and embrace others choices. I would ask that everyone sign any petition they come across to keep these types of businesses open.
Any sneak peeks on new products or news you’d like to share?
Nope, you will have to come by and check us out for yourself! You won’t be disappointed.
