MARSHALL – Cresco Labs on Monday officially opened its new cultivation and processing facility in Marshall with a bevy of politicians and company officials cutting the ribbon.
The grand opening also marked Cresco Labs offering its cannabis products to Michigan patients and customers. Those products include Mindy’s, as well as its Good News and High Supply brands.
“Michigan represents one of the largest opportunities in U.S. cannabis, surpassing mature markets like Oregon and Washington in sales this year, and at Cresco Labs we’re excited to be part of the state’s continued growth,” said Charlie Bachtell, CEO & Co-Founder at Cresco Labs.
“Our new Marshall facility will have strong production capabilities delivering a widely-recognized portfolio of brands with products that Michigan patients and customers want most, in categories such as edibles and flower. We’re also proud to provide job opportunities for people living throughout the region to support a positive economic impact in local communities.”
Cresco is the largest U.S. brand, according to marketing research firm BDS Analytics. And the company is staffing up quickly in Marshall at a former cheese factory. Cresco is looking to hire 110 local employment opportunities throughout Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and Coldwater. Sixty employees are already on the job.
Open roles in cultivation and manufacturing offer an average starting wage of $15 per hour. The Company provides full-time employees with comprehensive benefits, including health, vision and dental insurance; 401(k); paid time off package inclusive of PTO, sick, holiday, volunteer and wellness days; and Cresco Labs equity.
