TORONTO – Fire & Flower Holdings Corp.’s wholly owned delivery and logistics subsidiary Pineapple Express Delivery Inc. has entered into an agreement with Zonetail Inc. to provide cannabis delivery services to users of the Zonetail residential platforms.

Zonetail’s high-rise residential platforms connect residents of condos and apartments to the amenities and services of their building through the convenience of their personal mobile device. Using Zonetail’s platform, residents can access the building’s community news and activity feeds, community calendar, document libraries, book building amenities, such as visitor parking or the elevator, create and track maintenance requests, and access links to pay their rent or monthly maintenance dues. It digitizes the communications between property management and the residents.

Included on the Zonetail platform is a marketplace, highlighting the businesses and services that residents need. Through Zonetail’s unique age-gated section, Fire & Flower cannabis stores will now be the exclusive provider of cannabis to users of the platform and deliveries will be fulfilled through Pineapple Express to households across Canada and in the U.S. where it is legal to do so.

As the hotel industry continues to rebound from the effects of COVID, Zonetail’s expected relaunch of its hotel and travel platform is also planned to include Fire & Flower and Pineapple Express to provide cannabis delivery directly to hotel guests.

“Building our base of monthly active users is key to advancing our vision of Deliver Cannabis to the World. The Zonetail agreement is an innovative way to access cannabis consumers in major urban centres and those that are travelling to jurisdictions where legal recreational cannabis is available,” shared Trevor Fencott, Chief Executive Officer of Fire & Flower. “We look forward to building this partnership and focused growth on digitally-engaged consumers.”

“Pineapple Express is the leader in cannabis delivery and we are excited to offer cannabis delivery to the highly engaged users of our platform,” shared Mark Holmes, Chief Executive Officer of Zonetail. “Working with Fire & Flower and Pineapple Express was a natural choice for Zonetail, given the scale of their retail distribution network and ability to rapidly deliver cannabis directly to consumers doors.”

Deliveries will begin in the Greater Toronto Area in the coming weeks and users of the Zonetail platform will be notified of the availability of the delivery service at the Company’s earliest opportunity.

Fire & Flower is a leading, technology-powered, adult-use cannabis retailer with more than 100 corporate-owned stores in its network. The Company leverages its wholly-owned technology development subsidiary, Hifyre, to continually advance its proprietary retail operations model while also providing additional independent high-margin revenue streams. Fire & Flower guides consumers through the complex world of cannabis through education-focused, best-in-class retailing while the Hifyre digital retail and analytics platform empowers retailers to optimize their connections with consumers. The Company’s leadership team combines extensive experience in the technology, logistics, cannabis and retail industries.

Through the strategic investment of Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. (owner of Circle K convenience stores), the Company has set its sights on global expansion as new cannabis markets emerge and is poised to expand into the United States when permitted through its strategic licensing agreement with Fire & Flower U.S. Holdings upon the occurrence of certain changes to the cannabis regulatory regime.
