Brandy’s Canna Butter Delites to Sell CBD-Infused Baked Goods at New Café
CHICAGO -- Chicago, Illinois-based CBD company Brandy’s Canna Butter Delites today announced that its line of CBD-infused baked goods will be available for purchase at the company’s new café, which is set to open in late September.
Brandy’s CBD is expected to make Auburn Gresham its new home. The specific location of the café is currently being negotiated, but Alderman Howard Brookins is lending Brandy’s CBD his support.
The CBD product line is comprised of cookies, cupcakes, gummies, lemonades, and coffee just to name a few. The desserts are unique in their own right, not only because they’re infused with CBD, but also because everything is homemade from scratch by owner Brandy Garner and her family.
Garner and her husband founded the company in 2019 and have spent the last year building their brand and perfecting their recipes.
As many may know, Auburn Gresham was one of the areas hardest hit by rioters following the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020. Garner was asked why she chose Auburn Gresham and she replied, “it's home”.
Garner and her family have lived in the Auburn Gresham area for many years and cannot think of a better place to own their business. Although it is rumored that many of the hard-hit businesses will not be returning, she said this is the driving force behind the decision to open a café in the area.
“I love my city, my community, and my people," Garner said. "I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else."
Upon opening, Garner and her family will own the first African American CBD Café in Chicago.
Garner was also personally affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which depleted the majority her startup funds. But she is determined to open by September, and has created a GoFundMe account in hopes of collecting donations to assist with her journey.
Asked what her goals were after opening the café, Garner said, “move our products to the dispensary."
“It’s time more African American women get into the industry,” she added.
Donations can be made directly to Brandy’s Canna Butter Delites via GoFundMe. For more information on how you can help, or to get in contact with Brandy Garner, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
