LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Driven Deliveries Inc.

"The simplicity of the product positioning and packaging is unique and very well received by consumers," said, Christian Schenk, CEO Driven Deliveries Inc. "Disposable vape pens is the 4th highest volume category on our menus. By owning the brand and the supply chain we will be better positioned to capture a higher margin for a leading product base among our customer base. The volume growth trend for vape products is continuing with increased demand."
Driven plans to expand the portfolio of products as well as the distribution not only across the State of California, but out of State as well, where legally permissible.
"We evaluated several suitors during the first quarter of 2020 and Driven provided the most value for our loyal customers," said Mark Davis, President, Mozen Inc. "We have always believed that a best-in-class delivery platform is the preferred method for adult professionals, parents and active retirees to purchase cannabis. We are really excited to work with the Driven team to expand the Mozen brand with more innovative products and new categories and execute our shared vision for creating a high growth Cannabis business. Our customers have had nothing but great experiences with Driven's retail brands, ganjarunner and Budee and we have greatly benefited from their continued success. We look forward to working towards entering into a merger agreement with Driven," added Davis.
