Miami, FL. September 2019 – Shifting public perspectives on marijuana, CBD, and e-cigarettes have
ensued thousands of smoke shops to spring up across the nation. With people seeking healthier
alternatives, they’re also looking for spots to enjoy their smoking products, similar to cigar lounges.
Founded in 2014 by Marlin Silva, Wake-N-Vape is a premium smoke shop and CBD lounge that offers
tobacco products, vaping essentials (mods & e-juices), rigs for concentrates, hookahs and shisha,
traditional smoking products, and a variety of CBD products. Wake-N-Vape also manufactures their own
e-juices as well. In only five years, Marlin has been met with huge demand for more locations and is
expanding his brand through franchise opportunities!

In 2019, Wake-N-Vape partnered with Franchise Creator to establish a franchise program tailored for
entrepreneurs with experience in the smoke shop and e-cigarette industries. Hossein Kasmai, CEO of
Franchise Creator, was impressed with the success of Wake-N-Vape as an individual unit, and reached
out to help them expand. “Franchising our business for expansion was our best option,” Marlin Silva
said. “We want tobacco and CBD users everywhere to associate Wake-N-Vape with the smoking and
vaping lifestyle.”

Wake-N-Vape prioritizes quality of products above all, which is why their approach to crafting e-juices are unique from competitors. Instead of pumping out a huge variety of low-quality flavors, Wake-N-Vape takes months to develop each flavor right in our Miami-based laboratories. This includes an extensive R&D process that includes balancing ingredients, testing flavor notes within the full spectrum of devices on the market, and ensuring that each juice meets Wake-N-Vape’s rigorous quality control standards before they’re released to the public. In addition to this, Wake-N-Vape offers rig rentals for patrons to dab their herbal oils and CBD concentrates in their dedicated lounge. Our inventory also is comprised of all the essentials of a full smoking experience, including tobacco, glass tobacco pipes, rolling papers, scales, grinders, and more!

According to a 2013 estimation, the U.S. head shop industry pulls in an average of $10 billion a year.
With recent advancements in the marijuana industry, head shop revenue is expected to grow in
exponential increments! CBD sales are also on the rise – from 2019 to 2020, there is an expected 43%
increase in CBD sales in the U.S., totaling a whopping $1.15 billion in revenue! If you want to become
the main source for smoking and vaping essentials in your community, contact Franchise Creator today!
