About Cresco Labs

 

Using a consumer-packaged goods approach, where cannabis products are treated as if they were common items used daily by average consumers that require routine replacement, Chicago-based Cresco Labs has become one of the largest vertically-integrated multistate cannabis operators in the U.S. It not only runs the Sunnyside chain of medicinal and recreational dispensaries, but produces several recognized national brands, including Cresco, High Supply, Mindy's Edibles, Good News, Remedi, Wonder Wellness Co., and FloraCal Farms. Founded in 2013 by two real estate lawyers with no previous professional experience in the cannabis field, Cresco employs roughly 2,700 people, working in 32 retail outlets and 18 production hubs located in 10 states around the country (with six of those production hubs in California).

Named by Crain’s Chicago Business as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Chicago, Cresco Labs offers competitive salaries as well as a high-quality benefits package that includes a 401(k) plan, unlimited vacation days, and a comprehensive health care insurance program. For certain employees that work long hours at their computers, Cresco provides ergonomic chairs, stand-up desks, and dual monitor workstations to ease back and neck pain and eyestrain. Cresco also offers a casual dress code and flexible work schedules—as well as frequent teambuilding social events to improve interdepartmental camaraderie. 

Recognizing that the cannabis industry is poised to become one of the leading job creators in the country, Cresco Labs operates the industry’s largest Social Equity and Educational Development (SEED) initiative. SEED was established to ensure that all members of society have the skills, knowledge, and opportunity to work and own businesses in the cannabis industry.
