A Letter From Our CEO
To our valued community of friends, partners and neighbors -
As Sweet Flower embarks on the next phase of our journey, I would like to take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come and where we are going.
What started with a shared vision to set a new standard for modern cannabis retail culture, rooted in our values, has grown into something larger than I and our great team could have ever imagined.
Los Angeles is among the most diverse communities in the country, if not the world. The Sweet Flower brand and our dedicated team reflects that diversity. We are creating experiences for everyone, from the cannabis curious to the flower fluent.
Education and engagement are touchstones of the Sweet Flower experience.We want all of our customers to feel comfortable enjoying an inviting, inclusive environment, and we want your first impression of us to be a lasting one that exceeds your expectations.
And as importantly, we want to build a sustaining brand that reflects not only our core values but also those of the communities we serve.
Our definition of success is simple: surprise and delight our customers every day, and serve our communities in ways that sensitively addresses their needs. We consider it a privilege to empower consumers to meet their health and wellness needs by finding ways to integrate cannabis into their lifestyle.
And we’re thrilled that starting this week you can find us on Melrose Avenue and in Studio City. Please join us this week from 4 - 8 pm Tuesday - Friday as we celebrate the launch of both stores.
We started with a shared vision, have built our diverse and inclusive team, and are diligently executing on our values-driven mission. Now we invite you to visit Sweet Flower and enjoy a truly re-imagined cannabis retail experience.
As always, I welcome your questions and your feedback.
All the best,
Celebrate International Women’s Month with Sweet Flower: Save the Date for Our March 28 Women in Cannabis Panel
Culver City, California, March 13, 2019 – Last Friday the world celebrated International Women’s Day, and the theme was very relevant to the cannabis industry, Balance is Better (#balanceisbetter.) It’s no secret that the cannabis industry has historically been perceived as heavily male-dominated – often being dubbed a ‘bro’ culture. This is changing, and to the surprise of many outside and even inside the industry, this new direction is being driven by diverse and dynamic women.
Sweet Flower is committed to fostering an elevated cannabis culture that’s both approachable and sophisticated for our customers and employees. We want people to have experiences with us that build confidence, comfort and curiosity, and that complement and enrich lifestyles of all kinds and backgrounds. One of the most important ways to do that is in creating the right balance – between what people have come to expect and what the new direction of cannabis retail is all about, particularly as we are re-defining it at Sweet Flower.
We’re gathering five stand-out women for a “Women of Cannabis” panel discussion we’ll host on March 28 at our Culver City headquarters. The conversation will touch on wide-ranging topics including:
- The emerging influence and power of women
- Dramatic changes in the retail experience
- The importance of being authentically local in the communities you call home
- Working with local and state officials
- Inclusivity and diversity across staff and clientele
Take a look at this stellar line-up:
Yelena Katchko is founding partner of Katchko, Vitiello & Karikomi, PC. She focuses her practice on corporate law, licensing, and regulatory compliance with a heavy focus on Southern California’s commercial cannabis industry. Mrs. Katchko is known as a powerhouse within the cannabis industry and has represented medical cannabis clients in the City of Los Angeles since 2009.
Circe Wallace has spent a little time on a snowboard – she was a pioneer of the women’s snowboarding movement in the 1990s and competed in the first-ever ESPN winter event in 1997. Today, Circe is an equally powerful force in cannabis with Hot Nife — a company she founded in 2017, which produces full-spectrum, small-batch extract vaporizer pens and top-shelf pre-rolls from an organic flower farm in the Emerald Triangle in Northern California.
Erin Weber is with Axiom Advisors, one of California’s leading public affairs firms with deep roots in shaping the laws and regulations governing California’s cannabis industry. Erin works with cannabis companies throughout the state, helping them navigate the regulatory landscape in jurisdictions statewide.
Terri Gilles is chief operating officer with Sweet Flower, responsible for budgeting, design, construction and operations of all Sweet Flower retail destinations, including the two we will be opening next month, on Melrose Avenue and in Studio City. Terri also oversees human resources, making sure that we develop a responsible, knowledgeable and engaging staff.
Lauren Carpenter is Chief Strategy Officer with Sweet Flower, where she creates and executes corporate strategic initiatives across community, regulatory, political, reputational and business efforts as Sweet Flower embarks on a dynamic growth strategy. She recently joined us from MedMen, where she was Director of Government Affairs for Western States. Before joining MedMen, Lauren spent nearly a decade in government and public affairs in Sacramento, working with trade associations and Fortune 500 companies on issue advocacy, legislative and ballot measure campaigns.
Welcome the new faces of cannabis. These women and so many more in cannabis today will continue to redefine the industry.
Join us for an informational panel highlighting women in the burgeoning legal cannabis industry.

Team Spotlight: Fawnia Cantu, Director of Retail
Culver City, California, March 12, 2019 – We recently announced two Sweet Flower locations opening in April -- Sweet Flower Studio City (rebrand of Perennial) and Sweet Flower Melrose. As we prep these boutiques to put our mission of setting a new standard for modern cannabis retail culture on full display, it’s important that our community gets to know the faces behind Sweet Flower and why we’re so passionate about our brand and what we stand for. Today we are introducing Fawnia Cantu, Director of Retail. Fawnia brings deep institutional knowledge in retail experience including staffing and training and has been responsible for destination retail locations across the West Coast.
Fawnia oversees Sweet Flower’s retail experience, from in-store initiatives to robust ongoing staff education and training programs. Fawnia has worked for several top organizations in the retail space, including Equinox and Armani, so she brings a fantastic perspective on the right kind of eclectic experience to bring our own team and stores to full “flower”.
Throughout the last fifteen years, Fawnia has overseen operations, maximized profitability and developed world-class talent in over 30 high-end retail stores on the West Coast. In addition to extensive management experience, Fawnia lends her passion for excellence to create Sweet Flower’s uniquely elevated customer experience.
Fawnia brings a deep understanding of modern retail experiences and a keen appreciation for the importance of a highly trained and experienced staff. We’re so glad she is part of our team and can’t wait to unveil her efforts when our Studio City and Melrose locations are unveiled next month!
Sweet Flower hosts a job fair at Culver City HQ
Culver City, California, March 11, 2019 – As we prepare to launch Sweet Flower Studio City and Sweet Flower Melrose next month, we’re focused on hiring and training retail staff that further our mission of reimagining the cannabis customer experience by setting a new standard for modern cannabis retail culture.
A central tenet of that reimagining is providing a concierge-level experience by knowledgeable staff who are approachable and well-trained to assist everyone from the cannabis-curious to the flower-fluent.
Earlier today we hosted a job fair at our Culver City HQ to help grow our staff for our Studio City and Melrose locations. We were so thrilled with the turnout -- we communicated with more than 400 applicants and interviewed nearly 60 candidates.
What an awesome and humbling experience hearing firsthand from so many members of our community telling us why a career in cannabis is exciting. We can’t wait to get started.
We’re working hard on every front: building boutiques that will be inviting and inspiring for consumers even as we are implementing robust staff education and training programs to ensure every customer has a positive experience, regardless of how familiar they are with cannabis products.
Keep checking for updates on our two boutiques opening in April and for more to follow in the coming months.
We’re Coming to Melrose!
Culver City, California, March 6, 2019 – We’re very excited to announce that we will be opening Sweet Flower Melrose, in one of Los Angeles' most storied retail and dining neighborhoods directly across Melrose Avenue from landmarks "The Improv" comedy club and Fred Segal retail store. We plan to open the doors in early April -- stay tuned for more details!
Sweet Flower Melrose will offer customers a premium, differentiated retail experience designed to build comfort and confidence in cannabis culture. As with Sweet Flower's other stores, the Melrose location will offer a highly curated selection of cannabis goods, including Sweet Flower's exclusive, limited series of ocean-grown, private label product.

We’re Headed to Studio City
Culver City, California, February 15, 2019 – It’s been a busy few months here at Sweet Flower but we wanted to provide a quick update on an exciting development. Sweet Flower is growing - odds are,we’re coming to a neighborhood near you very soon!
Since we launched Sweet Flower in 2018, we’ve been dedicated to the mission of modernizing the cannabis customer experience. That means a curated selection of products, knowledgeable staff and an inviting environment where consumers feel comfortable asking questions. We’ve been working tirelessly to make our brand promise a reality people can experience, and now we’re thrilled to let you know that we will soon open the first Sweet Flower boutique, when we rebrand Perennial Holistic Wellness Center as Sweet Flower Studio City in April of this year.
Perennial was founded in 2006 and over the years has become one of Los Angeles’ most established legal cannabis dispensaries. It has nurtured a strong reputation with a discerning customer base who value product quality. Perennial is also widely recognized by city officials for its long history of compliance and adherence to industry regulations, and has become a shining example of management transparency and local community engagement. Even as we transform Perennial into Sweet Flower, we will preserve the spirit of this great Studio City institution.
Keep an eye out as we continue to announce additional locations. And as always, feel free to reach out or stop by our Culver City HQ at 10000 Culver with any questions.
Cannabis & Community: A Sweet Flower Talk Hosted by Dr. Sherry Yafai
Culver City, California, February 8, 2019 – Last night we hosted a Sweet Flower talk, Cannabis & Community, at our Culver City headquarters. Working closely with Dr. Sherry Yafai, founder of the ReLeaf Institute in Santa Monica, who moderated the discussion. Together we welcomed nearly fifty neighbors and friends from Culver City to 10000 Culver to learn more about the burgeoning legal cannabis industry.
Dr. Yafai and the other panelists expertly covered a range of timely topics including:
- Cannabis, health and wellness
- Building a responsible cannabis business
- Community engagement and giving back
We’re very grateful to Dr. Yafai and our panelists for the thoughtful and engaging discussion. We had many audience questions and were happy to see neighbors stay long into the evening to connect with our team and the panelists to chat and get more information.
Given we’ve made our home in Culver City, it is no surprise that Sweet Flower has applied for one of the three Retail Cannabis Business licenses in the City of Culver. Hosting or participating in timely, compelling discussions is just one of the ways we are committed to continuing engagement with our neighbors, friends and the community at large. We’ve already started planning our March Sweet Flower talk, Women in Cannabis, so stay tuned for more details for that panel discussion. And as always, feel free to stop by our HQ at any time to learn more about our commitment to Culver City.

Culver City, California, January 22, 2019 – Friday night we were at Mophonics for The City of Culver’s 2019 Installation and Recognition Gala - celebrating 98 years of business advocacy in the City.

While we’ve met quite a few local Chamber members walking the streets, dropping in to introduce ourselves, eating out and being introduced at some of the events we’ve attended since moving into our new headquarters at 10000 Culver, last night we really got the full flavor of what a remarkable business community Culver City really is.

Rooted in Values
Culver City, California, December 14, 2018 – Sweet Flower was established in 2018 when our co-founders saw an opportunity to set a new standard for modern cannabis retail culture. Like a flower, which gets its strength through its roots, Sweet Flower is rooted deeply in values. It is these values that drive our ethos, our passion, and our operations.
We are proud of the values that form the ethos of Sweet Flower; and we believe that in rooting our operations in values, we become more than just a business - we become a part of our community.
Trust and Transparency
Trust and transparency in business and employment relationships and practices is a fundamental tenet of who we are, our role in our community and in the cannabis industry.
Inclusion and Diversity
We believe in building strength through diversity - we’re fostering an open, approachable and supportive environment for our customers, employees and broader community, inclusive of all.
Public Health and Safety
Public health, safety and security are critical to us - we’ve built Sweet Flower operations to exceed required standards, creating a safe and secure place for our employees, customers and neighbors.
Giving back is at our core - we believe in direct and active engagement with our community, contributing to community causes and listening to the needs of our neighbors - which is why we’ve established an advisory board and a charitable fund to support the communities we call home.
Culture of Compliance
Our philosophy is simple: operating Sweet Flower is a privilege we take seriously. Commercial cannabis businesses must adhere to strict regulations to receive an annual license. We will continuously maintain standards that exceed compliance regulations in every market we operate.
Sweet Flower will be unveiling retail locations throughout Southern California in the coming months. We are thrilled to be able to show you how these values are integral to our efforts to modernize the cannabis retail experience. In the meantime, feel free to reach out with any questions. We’re here and want to hear from you.
Team Spotlight: Brett Vapnek, Director of Operations
Culver City, California, November 29, 2018 – As Sweet Flower grows its leadership team and works to bring a new cannabis retail experience to the greater Los Angeles area, it’s important that our community knows who we are and why we’re passionate about Sweet Flower. Today we’re introducing Brett Vapnek, Director of Operations. Brett brings deep institutional knowledge on compliant cannabis operations and a long history of leadership within the industry.
Brett joined the Sweet Flower team in 2018 to help guide the company in opening retail locations. Brett also currently serves as President of Perennial Holistic Wellness Center in Studio City, CA, so he has deep expertise in the management of successful and compliant cannabis storefront retail dispensaries.
A little more about Perennial: it is one of Los Angeles’ most established legal cannabis dispensaries and has nurtured a strong reputation with a discerning customer base who value product quality. Perennial is also widely recognized by city officials for its long history of compliance and adherence to industry regulations, and has become a shining example of management transparency and local community engagement.
Since joining Perennial, Brett has increased revenue ten fold and has ensured continued ongoing operational and legal compliance at Perennial year over year. Given his deep roots in the cannabis industry, he is also active with the well-regarded Lowell brand of cannabis products and with the associated distribution operation, Hacienda.
Brett brings a deep understanding of, and operational experience in, California’s complex and ever-evolving cannabis retail environment to Sweet Flower. We’re so glad he is part of our team and are grateful for his industry expertise and experience as we open boutiques in Los Angeles.
Thanks for the great suggestion, Jim!
Culver City, California, November 13, 2018 – One of the first people we met since moving to our new corporate headquarters at 10000 Culver is Jim Clarke, who recently served as Mayor of Culver City and now serves as a facilitator for Leadership Culver City. Leadership Culver City is an amazing program in community leadership and introduction to civic literacy that’s designed for people who live and work in Culver City and are interested in increasing their knowledge and engagement regarding community assets and issues.
While we are growing our team here at 10000 Culver, it is time to begin preparing to renovate the space and restore it to its historic glory (with a few modern updates). In talking with our CEO, Jim suggested a great idea for taking advantage of the extra room before we fill it up with people: host a used furniture give-away for non-profits and churches in Culver City. Tim immediately said yes - what a great opportunity for us to get to know people in the neighborhood and offer a little assistance along the way!
On November 5 we filled our space with chairs, desks and other used office furniture - all in good condition - and opened our doors. It was a great day; we met many of our neighbors and learned about the work being done by some amazing organizations in Culver City.
Thanks, Jim, for the awesome suggestion. We look forward to more events like this and to continuing to meet more of our neighbors. Feel free to stop by and say hi anytime. We’d be thrilled to meet you.
We’ve Moved In and Want to Meet You!
Culver City, California, October 30, 2018 – Today marks the one-month anniversary since moving our corporate headquarters to Culver City. As an emerging cannabis brand, we wanted to locate in a city that celebrates creativity and community, and Culver City felt like the perfect fit.
We’ve opened our company headquarters at 10000 Culver, the former Gateway Station Post Office, and are so proud to be part of the history of this building that began with its construction in 1940 and earned the “significant” status designation by the Culver City Council in 1991.
Now that we have the space, it’s time for us to build out the team that will be vital in launching Sweet Flower’s vision. This team will work collaboratively as we renovate our headquarters, operationalize assets throughout the greater Los Angeles area, and partner with local communities to ensure Sweet Flower becomes a part of the fabric of every neighborhood we call home.
Giving back to the community is one of our core values. We believe in contributing to community causes and listening to the needs of our neighbors - which is why we’ve established both an advisory board and a charitable fund to support our communities.
We’ve also worked hard to find local organizations to partner with. We proudly support the Culver City Education Foundation, the Culver City Cultural Affairs Foundation, the Culver City Chamber of Commerce and the Culver City Downtown Business Association, among others. As we operationalize assets and build out retail teams, we will implement a robust volunteerism program that ensures our teams are working side by side with local organizations and neighbors to better our communities.
Now that we’ve moved into our new headquarters, we’re also looking forward to playing the role of host. Next month we’re holding a women’s painting class with Chabad Culver City North. In January we’re hosting the Chamber of Commerce’s “The Guide” launch party. In February we’re planning a Cannabis & Community Informational Panel. And we will continue to schedule events, lunches, coffees, dinners, and more. We mean it when we say we want to hear from our neighbors as we launch our brand in Southern California.
But you don’t need to wait for an invitation. Please feel free to stop by 10000 Culver anytime to learn more about us. We can’t wait to meet you!
At Sweet Flower, We’re Getting Ready to Curate the New Face of Cannabis Retail
Culver City, California, October 15, 2018 – Californians voted to legalize adult use cannabis in November 2016 by a wide margin, affirming the belief that legal, regulated cannabis could provide many benefits for our communities including high-paying jobs and vital tax revenues to fund local services. This vote also sought to recognize the role that cannabis was already playing for many by providing relief for medical users.
For consumers, legalizing adult use cannabis was the start of a new era -- one in which adults could safely, responsibly and enjoyably purchase cannabis products in an inviting space with knowledgeable staff.
Against this backdrop, Sweet Flower is emerging as a company dedicated to setting a new standard for modern cannabis retail culture. As a cannabis lifestyle brand, we are reimagining the cannabis experience through the promise of concierge-level service intended to meet consumers where they are, from the cannabis-curious to the flower-fluent.
By emphasizing quality and wellness, Sweet Flower will curate a broad assortment of products and brands that resonate in the communities where we operate. And we will achieve that through a focus on localism -- hiring local residents as our employees, working with local governments to ensure strict compliance, and partnering with local non-profits and community-based organizations to consistently and meaningfully contribute to our neighborhoods.
In the coming months Sweet Flower will be unveiling retail cannabis boutiques throughout the greater Los Angeles area. As Chief Executive Officer of the company, what will make me most proud is how we integrate into the fabric of our communities. And I invite you to follow along on this journey with us.
I am always available should you wish to learn more about our company, our values, and our commitment to working collaboratively within the cannabis industry.
Brian T. Regan
