Pitch

Who are we

QwikLeaf, LLC is a technology company bringing click-and-collect automation to the cannabis industry. We have developed the world’s first click-and-collect cannabis platform, the QwikCollect Platform.

 

Our growth and value come by bringing a needed segment (click-and-collect) to the cannabis market. We have strategized to profit from the success of cannabis retail stores increased sales and decrease in employee overhead from using our platform. Join in on the opportunity to legally profit from cannabis stores across the United States. Become part of revolutionizing cannabis sales!

Problem

PEAK DEMANDS

In the cannabis retail market, product delivery time is important to both customer and retailer. Cannabis store owners are forced to add additional employees to handle high demand sales periods. The biggest bottleneck on both the consumer and retailer-end of cannabis sales is the process of exchanging money for the product.

 

SALES

Wait time and long lines inside of cannabis stores result in lost customers and decreased sales for business owners. The number of products a cannabis merchant can logistically sell is constricted by the number of registers, staff available, and the speed in which they operate.

 

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

Customers expect to be able to choose a check-out option that suits them best. Cannabis retail stores leave it nearly impossible to predict the amount of time required to get in and out with a purchase. Cannabis consumers want access to cannabis products as fast as possible. Cannabis retailers do not have the technological infrastructure to sell and dispense products efficiently to their customers.

 

Solution

 QwikLeaf LLC solves the problems faced by cannabis retail store business owners and consumers while remaining unaffected by ever-changing cannabis laws. We are a non-plant touching company that provides hardware and software solutions to plant-touching businesses. We have developed the first click-and-collect platform for cannabis sales. Using our custom hardware and software the QwikCollect platform provides cannabis retailers with faster sales times, safer transactions, and increased sales. 

 

The QwikCollect Platform is the first click-and-collect cannabis platform in the world. QwikCollect allows consumers to order online and pick-up their cannabis products at a dedicated locker or cube. The platform gives dispensary owners easier entry into the online space since it has more favorable economics than delivery. Our platform gives customers access to the products they want with little to no wait time. Customers can order online at home, and wait for notification of when their order is ready. QwikLeaf is pioneering this new format and developing tailored solutions for dispensary owners to win in click and collect.

 

As more cannabis retail stores open across the country, we are prepared to provide the technological infrastructure to add benefits of click-and-collect to each and every cannabis retail location possible.

Achievement & Traction

 We have custom manufacturing designs of the world's first click-and-collect cannabis hardware.

  • The QwikCube was custom designed by QwikLeaf and is unique to the entire industry
  • The QwikLocker is the first click-and-collect locker designed for cannabis sales

 

We have identified key opportunities to sell our platform to functioning and startup cannabis businesses.

 

We have formed an agreement with one of Michigan's largest legal retail cannabis stores to purchase and use our platform in their chain of expanding cannabis retail stores.

 

We are currently exploring options for entry into global markets including Canada and Europe.

 

We are positioned to partner with many established cannabis tailored e-commerce, loyalty rewards, point-of-sale, and seed-to-sale software companies. The possibilities for implementing additional features to our platform only adds to our value and growth as a technology company in the cannabis sector.

 

 

 Lastly, we are building a team of industry experts to help navigate our company to the best exit strategy possible. We have an anticipation to secure additional rounds of financing for growth with eventual maneuvering to an IPO or mini IPO.

Market

The Click-and-Collect Cannabis Market 

To date, cannabis has yet to gain mainstream adoption. The last barrier to mass market adoption will be removed when cannabis is recreationally legalized across all 50 states. Currently, 33 U.S. states have legalized cannabis to varying degrees. In the United States, over 24 million, or 9.9 percent of adults age 18-plus consume cannabis regularly, and 115 million (48.2 percent) report consuming it in their lifetimes. There were 2.4 million U.S. medical marijuana patients in 2018, up 71 percent from 2014.

 

 In many states cannabis stores are starting to outpace coffee and fast-food, for instance in Denver, there are more cannabis retail stores then McDonald’s, Burger King and Starbucks combined. The state of California currently has 358 licensed recreational marijuana stores with many more opening every month.

 

Large retailers like Target, Walmart, Kroger and Home Depot are using store pickup to lower costs, interact with customers, and drive growth. Using stores to fulfill e-commerce orders lets retailers increase their supply chain speed to their businesses.  Statistics show that 70% of U.S. shoppers have used some form of click-and-collect options when given the option in 2018.

 

Retailers are quickly adding purchase online, pick-up in-store technology. In 2018, Target launched its curbside pick-up service to 200 stores throughout the Midwest and the South. Walmart said it will expand in-store pickup options to 2,200 stores by 2019. Old Navy is counting on purchase online pick-up in-store technology to boost sales of its apparel along with fashion giant Zara which also has started implementing its own version of the technology.

Competition

Around the world click-and-collect technology is gaining traction fast within many brick-and-mortar stores. Large retailers are learning fast that it’s in their best interest to partner with a click-and-collect platform provider.

 

The cannabis industry is very unique, any new technology involving cannabis requires specific features and abilities to achieve usability, compliance, and acceptance within the market. e-commerce, point-of-sale, and inventory management software and hardware companies have all existed successfully for over a decade. With the legalization of cannabis sales has come a rush of successful start-up companies within these market segments. Few companies with relevant technology to the cannabis industry have decided to enter due to the risk in a conflict of interest with their current operating clients, partnerships, certifications, and contractual obligations.

 

Large corporations and businesses have yet to understand how best to integrate their products without facing financial pull-back on their existing ones.

 

Our primary competition are larger click-and-collect technology companies with access to capital for research and development into the cannabis industry.

 

We have plans to reduce the risk associated with potential competition by entering the market first and securing contracts with cannabis business owners and corporate chains. Many companies in the click-and-collect industry and other technology segments are waiting for cannabis to become federally legal before investing resources and capital.

 

We feel by entering the market first and evolving our products and software around the industry will give us a competitive edge in securing market share.

 

Currently, there are no click-and-collect competitors in the cannabis industry. Current competition has still yet to cross into the cannabis market leaving the opportunity for first-mover advantage.

Use of Proceeds
The allocation of the use of proceeds among the categories of anticipated expenditures represents management’s best estimates based on the current status of the Company’s proposed operations, plans, investment objectives, capital requirements, and financial conditions. Future events, including changes in economic or competitive conditions of our business plan or the completion of less than the total Offering, may cause the Company to modify the above-described allocation of proceeds. The Company’s use of proceeds may vary significantly in the event any of the Company’s assumptions prove inaccurate. We will retain broad discretion in the allocation of the net proceeds from this Offering, reserve the right to change the allocation of net proceeds from the Offering as unanticipated events or opportunities arise and could utilize the proceeds in ways that do not necessarily improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our Common Stock. Additionally, the Company may from time to time need to raise more capital to address future needs that we may not have anticipated as of the date of this Offering Circular.
Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This offering contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. We caution investors that any forward-looking statements presented in this offering, or which management may make orally or in writing from time to time, are based on the Company’s beliefs and assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company. When used, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “result” and similar expressions, which do not relate solely to historical matters, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are not guarantees of future performance, which may be affected by known and unknown risks, trends, uncertainties and factors that are beyond the Company’s control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. While forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s good faith belief when made, they are not guarantees of future performance. The Company expressly disclaims any responsibility to update forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment, and new risks emerge from time to time.

Given these risks and uncertainties, prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.
