ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Dr. Zogg’s Amazing CBD, one of America’s fastest growing topical cannabidiol (CBD) brands, has partnered with the Asian American Trade Association Council.
Tampa, Fla.-based AATAC’s network comprises one of the nation’s largest associations of convenience stores, gas stations and general retail outlets representing more than 80,000 locations.
An important service from AATAC is helping its retail community identify and vet hot new products and offer distribution support to get them into their members’ stores.
For years, AATAC has been instrumental in launching dozens of new products into the convenience and general retail channels.
“Dr. Zogg’s Amazing CBD has a terrific product line for the convenience-store environment. Their brand really catches the shopper’s eye and makes it easy for them to try a high-quality topical CBD,” said Michael Hennessey, associate director of AATAC. “We’re excited to be working with them to place their products into our network stores.”
According to the Brightfield Group, the U.S. market for CBD products is growing at a solid pace and is expected to reach $16.8 billion in annual sales by 2025. Although COVID-19 has negatively affected many U.S. retail sectors, industry reports indicate that foot traffic in c-stores is equal to or higher than pre-COVID levels.
“This partnership with AATAC is exciting not only because they have unprecedented distribution reach into the largest segment of brick-and-mortar retail locations in America, but because they appreciate what we’re doing with Dr. Zogg’s,” said Mitch Pelavin, co-founder of Alpharetta, Ga.-based Dr. Zogg’s Amazing CBD. “We’re focused on bringing a better CBD buying experience to the American consumer with superior products that take the worry and confusion out of buying CBD.”
