Cookies To Base Florida HQ In Deland

One of the world’s leading medical and recreational cannabis providers plans to base its Florida headquarters in DeLand, a project that city officials tout as one of the largest commercial-sector investments in the city’s history.

California-based Cookies LLC announced Monday its intention to embark on the project that is expected to represent a $100 million capital investment and eventually bring 400 jobs to the community.

“On behalf of the city, I want to welcome Cookies to our community,” Mayor Bob Apgar said in a statement that accompanied the announcement. “Cookies’ total investment will represent one of the largest in the commercial sector in our city’s history and will help create hundreds of high-paying jobs for our area over time.

“Cookies is an outstanding organization, and I am looking forward to watching them become an integral part of DeLand,” Apgar said.

The company, which acquired one of Florida’s 22 medical marijuana treatment center licenses last year, will grow, cultivate and distribute its product from the DeLand location.

The operation will be located in the Northwest Industrial Business Park at the facility once owned by Brunswick Corporation. At 400,000 square feet of operating space, it was one of the largest vacant locations available for a corporation to locate.
