Stash is opening two new adult-use cannabis dispensaries in Illinois.
Stash Holdings Corp is headquartered in California, with operations in Illinois. The company has decades of cannabis and hemp experience.
The Stash team includes former executives of MedMen, Chai Cannabis Co., and Captor Capital. Founder and CEO Matt Longo has more than 20 years' experience in the space and is a pioneer in the cannabis and hemp industries. Longo founded two of MedMen's dispensary locations in West Hollywood and Santa Ana, California, overseeing operations for each store before their acquisition by Captor Capital. He was the owner/operator of two cultivation facilities, supplying Prop 215-compliant retailers and wholesalers, helped build one of the largest hemp farms in the nation, and has advised the Cambodian government on large-scale cannabis growing.
"It has been a long haul from the licenses finally being confirmed in early 2022, acquiring the two stores last year and then building out the two locations. I am so excited about what we have created – both stores in Orland Hills and Peru look exactly the way we planned: upscale, modern and welcoming environments, with a strong array of products to meet everyone's needs," Longo said.
