DENVER, January 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
West Coast Ventures Group Corp. (WCVC) ("WCVC") today announced it will be franchising its Illegal Burger restaurant chain. WCVC is a concept restaurant platform company with multiple concept restaurants in the works. WCVC currently has six restaurants in the Denver area under its Illegal Burger and El Señor Sol banners. Illegal Burger recently entered into an agreement with North American Cannabis Holdings (USMJ) ("USMJ") to rollout a pilot cannabis-themed restaurant in Colorado as part of USMJ's spinoff of the AmeriCanna Cafe. WCVC plans to begin the sale of Illegal Burger franchises in 90 to 120 days. Management anticipates the franchise business to substantially add to the companies existing $3 million in approximate annual revenue.
Jim Nixon, CEO of WCVC, commented, "We are excited about this upcoming new revenue stream for the Company. As many are aware franchising brings significantly greater bottom line profit compared to Company-owned locations. We have received many inquiries over the last few months requesting the availability of franchises. We expect a very positive response to WVCV adding this aspect."
AmeriCanna Cafe concept restaurant spinoff from USMJ is being effected by the sale of AmeriCanna Cafe to an independently listed public company, Priority Aviation (name change pending) (PJET). The spinoff transaction includes a planned issuance of PJET stock to the shareholders of USMJ in a dividend distribution. Illegal Burger, a subsidiary of WCVC, will partner with AmeriCanna Cafe to pilot a cannabis-themed restaurant in Colorado. The pilot will be launched in the form of a food truck featured in pop-up venues near a series of recreational marijuana dispensaries in Colorado. The pilot rollout is scheduled to start in the spring of 2019. AmeriCanna Cafe is expected to closely follow the successful Illegal Burger business model and similarly add a franchise offering to accelerate future growth.
