L.E. Baskow Sen. Tick Segerblom, joined by the Las Vegas Paiute People’s Benny Tso, makes the ritualistic first purchase at the Nuwu Cannabis Market on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017. The mega dispensary has included a drive-thru.
Nuwu Cannabis Marketplace, situated on tribal land on 1235 Paiute Circle near downtown Las Vegas, will open the one-lane drive-thru to the public at twelve noon. Designed for elderly and disabled clients who ‘d choose not to leave their vehicles, the drive-thru service will offer about 15 popular flower, edible and concentrate items.
“We desire all consumers to have that same experience of being able to get in and go out,” said Benny Tso, chairman of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe. “It’s about speed and benefit.”
The drive-thru, a transformed $30,000 bank teller window shipped from Washington state last week, is made from bullet-proof glass and framed with bullet-proof Kevlar material. A minimum of two monitoring electronic cameras line both the inside and beyond the window.
Store representatives stated they want to serve consumers in less than a minute after the customer’s order is put. Ethan Lucas, Nuwu’s product manager, said drive-thru supervisors have actually been worked with away from fast-food chains to deal with predicted vehicle traffic and take orders while drive-thru clients are in line.
The new window is created after a comparable design utilized at the people’s popular smoke store, situated about 100 feet far from the nearly 16,000-square-foot mega dispensary, which opened last month. Tso approximated that nearly 300 lorries travel through the smoke store drive-thru on a provided day.
“We simply wanted to be able to have fun with the huge pet dogs up here,” Tso said, referring to the expanding marijuana market in Las Vegas.
Kevin Clock, president of Cascade Strategic Investments who partners with Nuwu, stated the new drive-thru is the first quick food-style drive-thru for recreational marijuana in the nation.
A car wash-style drive-thru with opening and closing garage-style doors for Tumbleweed Dispensary in Parachute, Colo., opened on April 20. All Greens Dispensary in Sun City, Ariz., opened a quick food-style drive-thru for their medical marijuana-only facility on Oct. 27.
