Verano Zen Leaf opened the 16th dispensary location in New Jersey today with its satellite retail shop in Neptune.
“New Jersey’s expansion into [responsible] use is a significant milestone within a core market of ours and presents exciting growth potential for Verano,” said Verano Co-Founder and CEO George Archos. “We have prepared for this and established a vertical integration, which enables us to scale operations in the state efficiently and profitably. At the same time, we’re pleased to continue expanding the Zen Leaf dispensary brand and an elevated cannabis shopping experience in New Jersey and specifically for the Monmouth County patient community.”
Zen Leaf Grows
The roadside location is located at 2100 NJ-66 in Neptune Township, about two miles from the Asbury Park boardwalk, Jersey shore and many other popular landmarks such as the Monmouth Racetrack in Monmouth County. It is located in a busy retail corridor, with Costco and the old Seaview Square Mall right nearby, only a couple of miles from boardwalks and beaches. There is also a Taco Bell pretty close by too!
