TIMONIUM, Md., Jan. 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In a significant milestone, Curio Wellness, a leading cGMP-certified cannabis company known for its innovative health and wellness products, proudly inaugurated its first Far & Dotter franchise in Olive Branch, Mississippi. This marks the company's maiden foray into Mississippi and its third retail location nationwide.
Situated at 8101 Hacks Cross Road, Olive Branch, Mississippi 38654, Far & Dotter Olive Branch stands as a testament to Curio Wellness's commitment to an inclusive franchising model. The establishment, owned and operated by Mississippi native Sederia Gray, an accomplished communications professional and entrepreneur with a background in major companies like Google, FedEx, and Boeing, is the first of its kind in the country.
Far & Dotter Olive Branch is designed as a holistic center, emphasizing health and wellness, and is led by experts dedicated to providing premium plant-based medicine and remedies for patients on their wellness journeys.

Curio's inclusive franchise model, facilitated by the independently managed Curio Wellness Investment Fund (The Fund), aims to empower franchise owners economically. The Fund, specifically created for women, minorities, and disabled veterans, supports entrepreneurs like Gray, providing them with the opportunity to enter and hold a stake in the cannabis industry.
