What is Bud Plug?
What would possibly make you want to call your company BUD PLUG? Do you know what that sounds like?
If you made it to this page, you have probably asked yourself something close to that. We wanted a name that would make you think twice and after you made sure that you heard to correct the first time – you would never forget it.
And yeah.. we know what it sounds like.
Why We Built Bud Plug
This started as an app for delivery that evolved into something much larger. The delivery platform evolved into an ecommerce platform, that evolved into a suite of plugins for a real ecommerce experience.
Short version – there are way too many legal cannabis dispensaries that signed up for underperforming platforms because their competitors are doing to too.
There are too many dispensaries that rent a website or an online store from web design companies that are the preferred partner of their Point of Sale or Digital Menu platform. Most of them just do it because their menu won’t work without it.
There have been way too many dispensaries paying for multiple 3rd party platforms just so they can put their inventory online.
There are way too many dispensaries that don’t even own their own website or content and rely 100% on 3rd party platforms that they don’t own.
We have worked in the cannabis space long enough to see all the bullshit that dispensary owners have gotten trapped in.
We wanted to even the playing field.
So a Dispensary Owner/ MIT Software Engineer, and SEO Professional and a payments processor came together to work on a solution.
Max was frustrated with the lack of real reporting from the popular point of sale systems, and iFrames just suck for SEO. David wanted to build a viable tool that he could use in his dispensary, and offer it to others who didn’t want to pay exorbitant amounts of money just for an online menu. Andy came in and helped a ton with payment integrations and partnerships.
It took over 2 years and a ton of trial and error, but we did it. We built it using our own money, time and incredible stubbornness.
This allows us to pass it on to you for a much lower cost than the other options out there since we don’t have to answer to investors or investors.
