Operators Only is a new entity formed by the merger of several successful cannabis retail operators in California and is being led by several cannabis veterans with a combined 50+ years in the industry: Salwa Ibrahim, Andrey Smykov, Hayk Serobyan, Edwin Movagharian and Sabas Carrillo. The entities include 3HHG (Sacramento), Cookies Oakland, and Cookies Maywood—the 2nd highest grossing Cookies store. Operators Only will initially have a total of nine stores across California, with more growth after the first year. All retail stores are branded Cookies or Lemonnade.
