NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Columbia Care Inc. (NEO: CCHW) (CSE: CCHW) (OTCQX: CCHWF) (FSE: 3LP) ("Columbia Care" or the "Company") has been named to Crain’s New York Business Fast 50, their annual list of New York City’s fastest-growing companies. Columbia Care is the only cannabis retailer and cultivator to be recognized.
Crain’s New York Business Fast 50 highlights the area’s most innovative companies and their rapid growth. The honor wraps a year when Columbia Care announced a new virtual shopping system, Virtual.Care, a national lifestyle brand, Seed & Strain, and the acquisition of The Green Solution and the pending acquisition of Project Cannabis in Colorado and California respectively.
"I am honored that Crain's has recognized Columbia Care as one of the fastest-growing companies in New York," says Nicholas Vita, CEO of Columbia Care. "We have experienced unparalleled growth over the past year, which we credit to both our continued commitment to customer satisfaction and dedication to developing innovative products and services that create the best possible experience for our customers. We have seen an increasingly positive shift in cannabis sentiment, as proven by the recent waves of legalization in several states. Columbia Care will continue to expand and meet the needs of both local New Yorkers, as well as our customers across the country."
To be considered for the Fast 50, companies had to be established for a minimum four years, generate at least $10 million in 2019 revenue and have headquarters in the New York metropolitan area. Details about the Fast 50 list are available at https://www.crainsnewyork.com/awards/2020-fast-50.
