Illegal Burger by WCVC and AmeriCanna Cafe Announce Patented CBD Culinary Infusion Technology Pilot with Biolog Inc

DENVER, January 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — West Coast Ventures Group Corp. (OTCQB: WCVC) (“WCVC”) today announced an agreement with San Francisco-area based Biolog, Inc. to conduct a cannabis infusion technology trial.  WCVC’s Illegal Burger recently announced a cannabis themed restaurant joint venture with the AmeriCanna Cafe.  The cannabis infusion technology trial will be conducted in conjunction with the cannabis themed restaurant rollout.  The proprietary technology from Biolog enables the infusion  into virtually any food with a  very accurate dose of fast onset, highly bioavailabile, cannabinoids.

 

Jim Nixon, CEO of WCVC commented, “We are excited about this upcoming trial and we hope to implement this technology across all of our properties.  The Biolog products will enable us to infuse our foods with CBD, which is very popular right now and will be of great interest to our customers.  We expect a very positive response to WVCV being the first culinary group to use CannaStix.”

 

The CannaStix products are solid seasonings and spice that not only infuse any cooked food with cannabinoids, but also make foods taste great.  Biolog’s predecessor company launched a non-cannabis version of the product into the market place last year to considerable success.  Biolog is expecting an even bigger response for the cannabidiol (CBD) version of the product line.  Biolog plans to soon launch a series of cannabinoid infusion products for both food and beverages over the coming weeks.  Biolog’s products are protected by multiple patents, which cover the product and the method of production.

 

West Coast Venture’s  trial of CannaStix will utilize only the CBD versions of the product, but the companies have agreed to explore the possibility of distribution of all Biolog’s products within WCVC’s home state of Colorado to be included as part of the agreement signed by both companies.

 

CannaStix allow for a unique method to infuse cannabinoids into food.  Inserted as a solid mass of seasonings, spices, flavorings and cannabinoids, into foods, the sticks liquefy during the cooking process to infuse flavorings and cannabis directly into the food from the inside out.  Biolog utilizes a unique patented process that not only completely masks the usual bad cannabis taste profile, but also is proven, via clinical studies, to increase bioavailability of ingested CBD  significantly.

 

AmeriCanna Cafe is a concept restaurant business subsidiary conceived and launched by North American Cannabis Holdings (USOTC: USMJ) (“USMJ”).  USMJ recently affected a spinoff the of the AmeriCanna Cafe through the sale of the asset to an independently listed public company, Priority Aviation (Name Change Pending) (USOTC: PJET) (“PJET”). The spinoff transaction includes a planned issuance of PJET stock to the shareholders of USMJ in a dividend distribution.  Illegal Burger, a subsidiary of West Coast Ventures will partner with AmeriCanna Cafe to pilot a cannabis-themed restaurant in Colorado. The pilot will be launched in the form of a food truck featured in pop-up venues near a series of recreational marijuana dispensaries in Colorado. The pilot rollout is scheduled to start in the spring of 2019.

WCVC Expands in $780 Billion Fast Casual Dining Sector with New Illegal Burger Location and Cannabis Themed Restaurant Partnership

DENVER, November 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — West Coast Ventures Group Corp. (OTCQB: WCVC) (“Company”), parent company of fast-casual dining concept Illegal Burger, offering hand-crafted burgers + bar and fast-casual Mexican restaurant chain El Senor Sol, announced today that it has opened its fifth Denver area Illegal Burger location at 652 S. Colorado Blvd in Glendale, Colorado. The fast-casual sector currently accounts for approximately $780 billion in annual sales.

 

The total completion time for this location from signing the lease to opening for business was only 90 days. This is in line with Illegal Burger’s Rapid Restaurant Buildout Model which allows the company to get new locations up and running quickly. This model combines its commitment to sustainable design with a modular approach which results in a lower buildout cost and a greater speed to revenue for each new location. This approach shortens the journey from the initial investment to profitability and will likely become the preferred model for the restaurant industry in the future.

 

Commenting on the new location, WCVC Founder and CEO Jim Nixon said, “We are delighted with the speed of the buildout of this new location and further proving the value of our Rapid Restaurant Buildout Model. And for the short time this location has been open, we are pleased that the revenue run rate is exceeding our projections. We believe that our pioneering approach will bring incredible additional value to our customers and shareholders.”

 

The Company is also optimistic about the prospects for its concept cannabis themed restaurant partnership recently announced with North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc. (USOTC: USMJ) (“USMJ”).  USMJ last week announced the spinoff of its AmeriCanna Cafe restaurant business.  USMJ management remains in control of the spinoff company now independently listed under the ticker symbol USOTC: PJET.  USMJ shareholders are receiving a dividend of PJET stock as part of the spinoff transaction.  WCVC management is considering an equity stake in the AmeriCanna Cafe to potentially include a stock dividend to WCVC shareholders similar to the pending stock dividend planned for USMJ shareholders.

About West Coast Ventures

We’re Experts in the Restaurant Industry

 

You have a dream.  –  We have the recipe for your success.  –  We Create Extraordinary Results

 

We are in the business of creating extraordinary results, And we are changing the business world, one success story at a time.  We bring our knowledge, experience and expertise. You bring your commitment to learning, building and growing. Together we will create success beyond your greatest expectations.

 

Formula for Success

 

Our team includes deep restaurant management experience, business experts from multiple industries, marketing experts and investment experts. Together they form the secret sauce to our success and yours.

 

Standard of Excellence

 

We know that excellence is more than a slogan. It requires focus and commitment in every moment by an entire team, from the CEO to the dishwasher. In our world, no task is too large or too small and everyone is important.

 

Our Plan for Growth

 

Our growth strategy consists of the following components:

 

1. Organically expand our existing restaurant holdings with a focus on growing revenue and profit. What that looks like is investing $500,000 each quarter to open 3 new locations per quarter. This will add $800,000 to $1,000,000 revenue annually per new location for a total increase of $4,800,000 to $6,000,000 in annual revenue added to existing $3,000,000 annual revenue, so that at the end of six months we are on a $9,000,000 annual revenue run rate after adding the 6 new locations.

 

2. We have begun the process of setting up our franchising system with the goal of actively selling franchises within six months.

 

3. Find underdeveloped and under-valued restaurant properties and apply our successful growth model to their businesses.

 

4. Innovate and develop bold new dining concepts

 

 

Executing Our Plan

 

We have proven our concept and are well into scaling it. However, achieving exponential growth in both revenue and profit will require the following:

 

1. Long Term Partners

 

It takes time, a lot of hard work and financial resources to successfully execute a solid plan. For that reason, and others, we are seeking long term investors who seek a return on their investment but who are also committed to the power for good in each restaurant property.

 

2. Capital for Expansion and Potential Acquisitions

 

An important part of our growth strategy is acquisition of viable restaurant properties. And while we know that there are a variety of sources of financial leverage available we anticipate requiring cash for at least some percentage of the acquisition price as well as for physical improvements that may be required post purchase.

 

3. Other Uses for Cash

 

While most ongoing improvements will be funded out of existing revenues we find it prudent to have enough working capital to meet unexpected major expenses.

 

Maximizing Shareholder Value

 

We are committed to maximizing shareholder value and our growth strategy is designed to do exactly that. We expect that our success in the restaurant business and our ability to profitably expand our markets and locations when combined with our entry into the franchising market will translate into significant ROI for our shareholders.
