Grassworks Digital Celebrates First Anniversary of Simple Marijuana Menu with 100th Customer

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 4th, 2016 marked the first deployment of Grassworks
’s innovative Simple Marijuana Menu (SMM). Today, the company
is pleased to announce its partnership with Fweedom Cannabis, a
multi-location retailer in Washington, which marks the 100th deployment
of SMM in the recreational marijuana industry.

In achieving the company’s rapidly expanding market position, Grassworks
CEO and co-founder Ryan Porter leveraged strategies he formulated in the
highly competitive arena of online automotive retail, adapting proven
tactics to the burgeoning recreational marijuana space.

Grassworks’ automated, cloud-based SMM tool helps recreational marijuana
retailers attract and retain clients by providing a transformative
customer experience. It’s next-generation cannabis technology.

Greenside Recreational was the first Grassworks Digital client to use
the SMM tool, and General Manager Josh Cornutt is an advocate. “Not only
has Grassworks’ professional management of our online presence made
Greenside more visible to the public, the automated menu has saved us
uncountable hours of labor.”

In the past 12 months, the company has also launched its Order Ahead
product, which allows cannabis customers to place orders from their
laptops, tablets, or smartphones. Since the technology works seamlessly
with SMM and a retailer’s POS, it’s always clear what’s in stock, and
when Order Ahead customers arrive at a retail location, they can skip
the line and go directly to check out.

“Right now,” says Porter, “we’re seeing market-leading companies like
Starbucks embrace the order ahead concept, and our product allows
high-traffic locations to thrive without risking turning away potential

Since initially launching in Washington, Grassworks Digital has rapidly
expanded into Oregon, Colorado, Arizona, Illinois and Michigan. By the
close of the next fiscal quarter, the company expects to be in several
more markets. “The feedback from our clients has been incredible,” says
Porter. “Going forward, we’re going to continue to deliver time-tested
solutions to the exploding recreational marijuana space.”
