Uber’s announcement earlier today to acquire our sister company, Drizly is a remarkable vote of confidence for the future of the on-demand alcohol delivery market. The entire Lantern team is thrilled for our colleagues at Drizly, and we are certain that they will create unparalleled consumer experiences through this partnership.
Lantern’s operations and mission to bring transparency, equity, and access to the legal cannabis space will remain the same. Since launching in 2020, Lantern has been an independent subsidiary of Drizly Group and will now operate as a fully autonomous private company. Moving forward, Drizly’s founders, investors, and board members will serve as strategic advisors to Lantern while the company’s management team, staff and core product remain the same.
Lantern’s consumer-centric corporate ethos was born out of Drizly’s founding vision to create a more streamlined e-commerce experience, and Lantern will continue to build its best-in-class logistics technology platform that has already transformed the emerging cannabis retail industry. The company was first-to-market in Massachusetts and Michigan and is optimally positioned to continue expanding into new legal markets.
As the demand for safe and convenient access to legal cannabis soars across all demographics, Lantern will continue developing new pathways to connect local dispensaries, brands and consumers with each other. Lantern is committed to leveraging its platform to foster genuine consumer relationships and create opportunities for small businesses in every local community that it operates in.
The next few years will be consequential not only for the cannabis industry but also for the entire digital retail sector, and Lantern is eager to set new standards for what is possible in both spaces.
