Ready to win your retail cannabis license in Montana or Alabama?

cannabis business license in montana | alabama dispensary application | Montana dispensary application

Before attempting to win a cannabis business license in Montana or Alabama, potential dispensary owners must not only submit an application but must also make sure that they meet several state requirements. One state requirement that many dispensary owner-hopefuls get stuck on is the site and facilities plan. Residents hoping to open a Montana dispensary need to have a dispensary pre-licensure design in place, including a tentative cannabis dispensary floor plan.

Comprehensive Design Plan

When submitting a medical cannabis dispensary license application, you must complete all requirements to the state’s satisfaction. Missing even one small part of the application will disqualify it. The design plan for your potential dispensary space is an important part that should not be taken lightly. Creating a quick design with free software or hand sketching it on paper will simply not cut it when you’re in competition for a license with hundreds of other applicants.

With a comprehensive pre-licensure design plan for your dispensary license application in Montana or your Alabama dispensary application, you won’t leave anything to chance. Our designs will set you apart from competitors and can be the difference to help you stand out to the Bureau of Cannabis Control.

Legal Dispensary License Compliance

At Sungrown Studios, dispensary design is our main focus. We work with dispensaries around the country to provide them with expertly designed spaces. Coast to coast we are familiar with not only the laws governing dispensaries in your state but also with design techniques, modern approaches and trends that can help your dispensary stand out in the long-term. We help our clients obtain a Montana dispensary license, but we also ensure they have a professionally-designed and beautiful space that can come to life when the license is awarded.

Your Pre-licensure Package

Sungrown Studio pre-licensure packages are designed to ease stress and make the licensing process simpler. The deliverables create a solid foundation and reference point for your dispensary. We understand opening a dispensary is not an inexpensive endeavor. Our clients have a budget and need to move quickly. Our dispensary pre-licensure design plan is affordable and includes a significant credit toward a full dispensary design if used within 12 months.

With your Montana or Alabama Pre-Licensure Package, you will receive a semi-custom cannabis dispensary floor plan and a photorealistic rendering of your space to include with your Montana cannabis dispensary license application. Need help with a dispensary license application in Alabama? We’ve got you covered too! Exterior renderings are also available upon request for an additional fee. Your design will be based on your space’s actual floor plan and square footage if you already have a location for your dispensary.

Your semi-custom cannabis dispensary floor plan will include:

  • Traffic flow
  • Fixture locations
  • Feature walls
  • Security check-in
  • Cash wrap area
  • Vault
  • Additional features based on your space and design requirements

The photorealistic rendering will include:

  • A clear view of your dispensary
  • Lighting
  • Fixtures
  • Accessories
  • Your logo and branding in key merchandising locations

“Our team really loved the design you created for us. We will definitely tell our friends to hire Melinda and the Sungrown Studio team. You surpassed our expectation in a short time.”

Efficient Process for your Design Plan

Our process is efficient and results in beautiful and high-quality designs. After you purchase your dispensary pre-license design plan and provide your project specs, you can expect to receive both your floor plan and rendering in about three to four weeks. If this quick turnaround is still not quick enough, please inquire about rush jobs.

Ready for your design? We need the following to get started:

  1. The date you plan to submit your application
  2. The street address (including city and state) of your space. You may also submit a link to the real estate listing for your potential space. We do not need measurements for floor plans at this time.
  3. Special features you want in your dispensary like order fulfillment, curbside pickup, drive-thru window, medical consultation, waiting area, etc.
  4. Your Sungrown style quiz results.
  5. Your logo, color schemes and any other branding materials (if available).
  6. Payment via credit/debit card. Get started today!

We know the licensing process can be lengthy and frustrating. The last thing you need is added frustration when submitting a design plan. Let us make this process as easy and efficient for you as possible!
