Palm Beach Vapors looks to be the first official franchisor in the marijuana business, even though the Oklahoma-based CEO denied that was his next move when Franchise Times talked to him last spring. (Turns out CEO Chip Paul was filing for a patent on his marijuana vapor system at the time, yet wasn’t officially registered under the category, hence his demurral.) He’s got a nice head start, with a well-developed vaping system for electronic cigarettes and several units open to sell e-cigs, including in Colorado where recreational use of marijuana is legal. But Sean Green is also planning a run for the national franchise business. He’s the Washington state entrepreneur who owns Kouchlock Productions, who told us last July he has a production and retail operation he intends to franchise. “This is about to be the largest industry our country has ever seen to emerge over the next several years,” Green says. And although recreational use is legal in only two states so far, Colorado and Washington, more are sure to fall in line, if only for the hard-to-resist tax revenue.
