Brad Rogers, CEO & Chairman of RWB commented, “This is a fantastic partnership for RWB, Platinum and cannabis consumers in California. We are very excited to be able to work with Adam Berk, CEO & Chairman of Driven By Stem and his team. Adam is the visionary that pioneered delivery in foodservice as the founder of Osmio, which was acquired by Grub Hub. These folks are experts in the in-home delivery space and through this partnership, we have the opportunity to deliver Platinum to the homes of 92% of Californians with speed and convenience. This will certainly increase our brand recognition and avail Platinum to a significantly greater number of consumers in this previously underserved market” he concluded.
