Medical marijuana company Verano Holdings was out of room at its River North headquarters. It was just that simple.
Earlier this year, the company found a new home. At 9,500 square feet, the new office is almost four times larger than the previous space. It’s decorated for a cannabis company, with bright, stylized marijuana artwork and a sign that reads “Please keep off the grass” near the co-founders’ door. Verano has an option to take over more room in the building if needed.
“We just had no space. People were working at home because we had no place to go,” said Tim Tennant, Verano’s chief marketing officer, as he coordinated the delivery of an oversized leather couch for the co-founders’ office. “It was exploding faster than anybody could get their arms around.”
