Westleaf Inc. (TSX-V: WL) (“Westleaf”), is pleased to announce the opening of a Prairie Records cannabis retail operation in Warman, Saskatchewan and that the company has secured an option agreement (the “Option”) to acquire an additional cannabis retail store location in Swift Current. The Option is conditional on provincial regulatory approval of the permit application and the transactions contemplated by the Option. The Swift Current location is expected to be operated under the Prairie Records brand.

Prairie Records is a unique retail experience that celebrates the instinctual relationship of music and cannabis and surrounds the customer with the aesthetic of shopping in a vintage vinyl shop. The Prairie Records store is now open, centrally located in the town of Warman, just north of Saskatoon. The 3,200-square-foot location includes a retail storefront and warehouse space for an e-commerce fulfillment centre to serve the entire Saskatchewan market.

Highlights

  • Launch of the one-of-a-kind cannabis retail experience Prairie Records, and one of ~50 stores planned across Western Canada by the end of 2020;
  • The Warman location will serve as the online fulfillment centre for direct to consumer sales across the entire province of Saskatchewan;
  • Westleaf now has the option to purchase three additional retail stores in Saskatchewan, two in Saskatoon, and one in Swift Current. All options are conditional on provincial regulatory approval.

“Prairie Records is going to stand out from our competitors as something distinct and will provide the customer with a unique and engaging cannabis retail experience,” said Adam Coates, Chief Commercial Officer with Westleaf. “From the moment you walk through the door the customer will be greeted by a differentiated and inviting approach to cannabis retail.” Coates noted that shopping at a Prairie Records store will invoke the feeling of a retro-record shop, complete with music paraphernalia, curated play lists, and product information being presented on album covers.

“The opening of this Prairie Records location in Saskatchewan represents a significant milestone for Westleaf” said Scott Hurd, President and CEO of Westleaf. “As a vertically integrated cannabis company we are steadfast in our commitment to execute on our plans to have assets across the cannabis value chain. Combined with the cultivation facility under construction near Battleford, Saskatchewan and the extraction, R&D and production centre under construction in Calgary, Alberta, our strategy is rolling out as planned.” Hurd added.

The Warman location is the first Prairie Records store in Saskatchewan and will be followed by two locations in Saskatoon and one location in Swift Current, subject to Westleaf exercising its option to purchase agreements. Customers can expect superior customer service at Prairie Records, staff have undergone extensive training to ensure they can meet the diverse needs of every consumer who walks through the door while providing a safe, inclusive environment rooted in cannabis education. Prairie Records’ Warman location is located at 100 2nd Ave North and is open Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. For more information on Prairie Records, visit prairierecords.ca.

McIlhenny Company produces TABASCO® Brand products, which are sold in more than 185 countries and territories around the world and labeled in 22 languages and dialects. The 150-year-old company makes a line of pepper sauces, including its world-famous TABASCO® Brand Original Red Sauce, Green Jalapeño Sauce, Chipotle Sauce, SWEET & Spicy Sauce, Habanero Sauce, Garlic Pepper Sauce, Buffalo Style Hot Sauce, and Sriracha Sauce.

Sunset Grill Restaurants and McIlhenny Company’s world-famous TABASCO® brand have joined forces for a limited time infusing the rich, smoky flavour of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce with the Canadian breakfast chain’s tasty new Southwest Vegan Breakfast Hash.

Sunset Grill’s vegan hash combines home fries with sautéed onion, red pepper and mushrooms with a side of diced tomatoes and gluten-free guacamole. It was created in part due to guest demand for more vegan-friendly breakfast options. Now and for a limited time, a bottle of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce will be served tableside with the dish and be offered as a premium flavour option on all dishes upon request.

“The smoky profile of the TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce perfectly complements the southwest flavour of Sunset Grill’s vegan hash and really takes the dish to a whole new level,” said Angelo Christou, founder and CEO of Sunset Grill Restaurants Ltd.

TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce is considered a “medium” on the Scoville scale – which means it’ll give you the kick of heat you crave without completely knocking your socks off. The sauce is made of vine-ripened, red jalapeño peppers smoked over an open pecan wood fire. It’s preservative free, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher and halal.

“TABASCO® Foodservice Canada are thrilled to partner with an iconic local Canadian brand in Sunset Grill. We salute their ongoing efforts to innovate customer centric healthier, in this case vegan-friendly, options that deliver big flavour, and satisfaction,” said Daryl Lunney, vice president marketing, TABASCO® Foodservice Canada. “Loyal Sunset Grill patrons will now have the opportunity to elevate their other amazing offerings with a touch of the southwest by adding just a few dashes of TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce.”

The partnership was born out of a desire to elevate the traditional breakfast brand’s offerings with on-trend flavour infusions. The promotion includes an in-store poster, as well as an online ad spend for every Sunset Grill restaurant location to target local communities as well as an additional effort to promote the dish within the vegan community.

TABASCO® Chipotle will be available in all Sunset Grill franchised locations until late April 2019.
