NEW YORK – GenTech Holdings, Inc. (OTCMKTS: GTEH) (“GenTech” or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the high-end CBD food and drinks marketplace, is excited to announce accelerated plans to open its inaugural “Healthy Leaf” CBD-Infusion Café, with final architecture work now currently underway through leading architecture firm, Smith Maran LLC. In addition, the Company has officially extended lease agreement offers for as many as three additional Healthy Leaf locations.
“We have instructed the Smith Maran team to deliver a final plan that maximizes indoor and outdoor seating capacity with ample space for live entertainment,” commented David Lovatt, CEO of GenTech. “They are well aware of our signature high-end CBD lifestyle Café model, and we expect them to deliver finalized plans with a truly special tone and feel. We should have plans finalized by the end of next month, and we expect a relatively quick sprint from there to a tangible Grand Opening.”
Aside from the accelerated path toward a grand opening of Healthy Leaf Café #1, the Company has also made official lease offers for three additional Café locations. As noted in prior communications, the Company is moving along a planned path for coast-to-coast Healthy Leaf CBD-infusion cafés within 24 months.
Management notes that the Company’s accelerated time table for launch and expansion is linked to professional research suggesting faster-than-anticipated mainstream adoption of CBD products by general consumers in North America in 2019, as projected by a number of recently published Wall Street analyst reports. Several factors may account for this increased pace, but the Company believes that increasing availability of CBD-based products on the shelves of physical retail chain stores may be “normalizing” the concept of cannabidiol as a desirable product ingredient for mainstream consumers at an accelerated pace.
“We have seen analyst growth estimates for CBD skyrocket over the past three months,” continues Mr. Lovatt. “Our sense is that this is related to the reduced stigma of CBD now that consumers regularly see CBD based products on the shelves at the likes of Macy’s, Kroger’s, Walgreen’s, Rite Aid, and Walmart. It just doesn’t seem quite so ‘niche’ or ‘counterculture’ anymore. That has huge implications for our own sense of the size of our target market. This could be much bigger than we initially realized.”
