BEND, Ore., Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third year in a row, cannabis enthusiasts have voted Oregrown Central Oregon's Best Dispensary in the Source Weekly's annual reader's poll. Oregrown Industries, Oregon's premier farm-to-table cannabis company, operates its flagship dispensary in downtown Bend.
"The three peat win is especially humbling this year," said Oregrown co-founder Aviv Hadar. "The Source Weekly is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and the Great American Eclipse is happening right here in our backyard," Hadar continued. "We pour our heart and soul into everything we do, so it's incredibly exciting to receive these awards while a record breaking number of tourists are visiting our hometown."
Oregrown also won the Source Weekly's reader's poll for The Best Place to Work (under 50 employees), although at the time of this release Oregrown has 52 employees. Legendary community staple Deschutes Brewery took home the win for Best Place to Work (over 50 employees).
"We are beyond humbled to be recognized as a great place to work," says Hadar. "We think of ourselves as a longterm landing spot where entry level positions can turn into lifelong careers in the cannabis industry. Those that stick around enjoy being driven outside of their comfort zone and often surprise themselves with what they are capable of."
Commitment to community is also a defining factor in Oregrown's success.
"As emerging business leaders in Central Oregon, we feel a responsibility to always be looking for ways to give back to our community. That's why Oregrown sponsors projects like the park cleanup that we partnered on with the Downtown Bend Business Association, or events like Winterfest, The Summer Fest, Bite of Bend and Oktoberfest, where we are headline sponsors," Hadar says. "This is our home, and we love it here."
Oregrown is Oregon's premier farm-to-table cannabis company, garnering back-to-back-to-back awards for Central Oregon's Best Dispensary at its flagship store at 1199 NW Wall Street in beautiful downtown Bend. Offering an upscale retail experience with an amazing staff and high-end products including solventless extractions and one-of-a-kind cultivars, Oregrown continues to innovate, develop and release world-class offerings, delivery methods and applications for medical and recreational marijuana customers.
