Happy New Year Meadow Community! 🥁 Drum roll, please…
Baked By The River: A New Era in New Jersey Cannabis Dispensaries
We’re happy to announce the launch of Baked By The River, Lambertville, New Jersey’s first Woman and Equity applicant-owned recreational dispensary. At the helm are local residents, Jesse Marie and Cord Schlobohm, both dedicated educators and cannabis activists who have realized their dream in a historic firehouse at the heart of Lambertville. For over a decade, Jesse Marie, herself a medical cannabis patient, baked edibles to serve other patients in her community with her dream to one day open her own.
Congratulations Jesse & Cord!
Helping to bring your dream to life has been an absolute pleasure, and we’re just as proud to say that Meadow, our award-winning, best-reviewed, omnichannel cannabis retail POS, now powers Baked By The River.
Meadow's Partnership with New Jersey's Cannabis Industry Leaders
And moving forward into 2024, we’re excited to be opening Plant Base dispensary in Plain Field, New Jersey. Plant Base is the brainchild of lifelong friends Kevon Carter, Prince Abidoye, and Alishea Kelly. Prince and Alishea met playing basketball at CSU Stanislaus State, while Prince and Kevon crossed paths in the NYC basketball world when they were just 16. They have a vision that extends beyond a simple dispensary - they're creating a space where quality cannabis promotes wellness and community harmony.
We were lucky enough to meet them all at MJBiz Con 2023 and have been excited ever since. With Art Byrd, a CFO with 30 years of experience in finance, and Yves Thony, a CTO with 20 years of experience in tech and buildout, they have a well-rounded team ready to change the game. Even before opening their doors, they've already started making a difference. This past November, they held a free legal expungement clinic for locals in the Plain Field area.
Celebrating Milestones in New Jersey's Cannabis Dispensaries
The opening of both of these stores (and more to come!) marks the culmination of years of dedication, hard work, and a relentless pursuit of excellence from our Meadow Team, and we couldn’t be happier to be doing it with Jesse & Cord and Kev & Prince who represent the very best of what passionate small business owners can do in the cannabis industry.
From Dream to Reality: The Journey of New Jersey's Cannabis Entrepreneurs
Since we started ten years ago, Meadow’s goal has been to make the very best software in cannabis. Our commitment to innovation, compliance, and customer satisfaction has driven every line of code, late-night brainstorming session, and hurdle overcome. While the road to this milestone has been challenging, it is through the efforts of our entire team and our incredible clients and supporters who have supported us every step of the way that we did it.
Advancing New Jersey's Cannabis Market: The Role of Innovative Dispensaries and Tech Partnerships
In every state we work in, Meadow positively impacts the cannabis industry, and looking into January, we can’t wait to replicate the success of Baked By The River and Plant Base in five more stores in New Jersey with five more equally incredible teams. Each one will work on the best-reviewed, easiest-to-use POS software for efficiency, compliance, customer satisfaction, and omnichannel sales.
Thank you for being an integral part of this incredible journey.
