The Arts District location is their fourth in Los Angeles offering both in-store and delivery services. To the entire team, it was the perfect location for growth thanks to the creative community that resides nearby. Sweet Flower’s CEO, Timothy Dodd, a New Yorker at heart, recognized early on the renaissance happening in Downtown, and craved to be a part of it.
Having just celebrated their one year anniversary, and showing no signs of slowing down, Sweet Flower is more in tune with this community. Cannabis sales have increased immensely since the COVID-19 pandemic reached Los Angeles. They have made their mark by stepping up their service and safety practices. “[We] were the first dispensary to offer curbside pick-up, and we created an offering of need-based kits,” said Kiana, “Angelenos are turning to our products now more than ever to navigate these times.”
Besides providing what folks need to get through these hard times, Sweet Flower knows the power of local partnerships. Joining local food icon 9th Street Ramen, they’ve created a unique special for frontline workers. The “Take-Home Ramen + Gyoza Kit” is free to anyone who works at a grocery store, hotel, or delivers food for a living. Each recipient gets a discount on a cannabis product of their choice.
Clearly, they’re looking out for others in this troubling time for the hospitality industry. But as cannabis culture continues to be destigmatized, Sweet Flower knows Downtowners embrace it as a remedy for all the uncertainty we deal with in today’s world. As our city continues to battle the virus, Sweet Flower wants our community to know they can count on them to guide us on the path to wellness.
