A family business with a passion for wellness.
Far & Dotter is a patient-first, pharmacist-led dispensary, holistic pharmacy, and wellness space that helps individuals achieve better health outcomes through medicinal cannabis and holistic wellness alternatives. We provide personalized, unintimidating guidance on the patient cannabis journey through a distinct focus on education and experience, and an emphasis on quality. Our name, Far & Dotter, celebrates our start as a father-daughter business. Our approach honors the wisdom and personal care we remember from the early days of family doctors and neighborhood pharmacists, while striving for innovation and change.
Founded by leading cannabis brand, Curio Wellness, we are a group of local entrepreneurs who believes in empowering other local entrepreneurs to become cannabis leaders and pioneers in their communities through ownership with our inclusive franchise model.
While all prospective franchisees with Far & Dotter are responsible for securing their own dispensary license, our team can connect you with attorneys and additional experts who can support you with navigating the licensing process.
Starting a dispensary can be expensive. We established the Curio WMBE fund to support entrepreneurs of color, women, and disabled veterans with funding to open a Far & Dotter location in the form of a low-interest loan. You can read more about the estimated costs of opening a location and how to qualify for Curio WMBE funding here.
Once a lease is signed and construction begins, we officially launch your brand opening timeline. This process includes a comprehensive training program, operations manual and corresponding SOPs, hiring guidance, marketing guidelines, product sourcing and vendor relationships, compliance support, all the technology needed to operate the business, and the tenets of our best-in-class customer service.
We are not just here to get you to grand opening. Our headquarters team will continue to meet with you and your team on an ongoing basis to provide continuing education, operational guidance, and any additional support needed to ensure your success.
