Our Tumbleweed Express Drive-Thru recently celebrated its one-year anniversary!
We opened Colorado’s first drive-thru marijuana dispensary on the Western Slope on April 20, 2017. We’re not going to lie — it felt good to be first.
But that’s not why we opened the business. Instead, it came down to customer service.
We have a lot of customers who don’t want to get out of their car for a host of reasons so we decided to add another level of convenience. At all of our Tumbleweed locations, we strive to go the extra mile to serve our customer’s needs.
Our Tumbleweed Express Drive-Thru is housed in a former car wash in Parachute. It was the location’s former life as a car wash that initially spurred the idea for a drive-through dispensary.
Plenty of people liked the idea. We were pretty tickled the grand opening got lots of great press from outlets ranging from Reuters to TIME. We even landed a spot on The Today show when reporter Gabe Gutierrez covered it, and ABC News was all over it, too.
As you might remember, we opened the original Parachute Tumbleweed location, across the street from the Drive-Thru, back in February 2016. It quickly developed a reputation for offering a wide variety of marijuana strains — at least 61 — and products, including edibles, concentrates, and beverages. Our goal was to offer an incredible selection of products to our customers.
While the original location is the perfect spot for people who need a little more guidance from a knowledgeable budtender, the Express Drive-Thru is meant to serve the loyal customer who knows exactly what they want. It also caters to late-night clientele.
As our CEO Mark Smith says, the drive-thru is our “frequent flyer program”; and it exists purely to provide a service our clients have come to greatly appreciate.
Along with our two locations in Parachute, we have five additional convenient locations along the I-70 corridor, including DeBeque, Carbondale, Edwards, Avon and Frisco.
Our loyal customers can trust that no matter what location they mosey into, they’ll find the same low prices and authentic western experience. And if you’ve yet to experience our drive-thru dispensary, come roll on through — we’re located at 258 S. Rail Road and we’re open from 3 to 11 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. We’ll be watching for you, partner!
