Second Cup looks to convert Ontario coffee shops to cannabis stores


Second Cup Ltd. is hoping to convert some of its more than 130 cafés in Ontario into marijuana dispensaries now that the province has cleared the way for private sector pot sales starting April 1.

The Canadian coffee chain and its partner, National Access Cannabis Corp. (NAC), a network of medical cannabis clinics, announced Wednesday some of the current Second Cup locations could be converted into Meta Cannabis Supply Co.-branded recreational pot dispensaries.

The conversions would happen only after a consultation process with Second Cup, franchise holders and landlords to determine if the locations would be more profitable as pot shops, said Mark Goliger, chief executive officer of NAC, a marijuana clinic operator.
