MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

 
TODD KLEPERIS
CEO, HARDCAR Distribution


 
 



We are pleased to feature SCTA member, HARDCAR Distribution, and its CEO, Todd Kleperis, in this month’s member spotlight. From packaging to distribution, and from secured storage to transportation of cash and product, HARDCAR Distribution prides itself on covering all aspects of cannabis retail.


Q. What do you want other SCTA member organizations to know about your company?

A: Our partnerships are providing legally-licensed cannabis businesses with a safe and secure option to bank their cash, thereby getting money off the streets. I am also proud to say that our work helps veterans by providing distribution, resources, medical help, and employment. In fact, 100% of our drivers/agents are service combat and law enforcement veterans.


Q. What drew your company to become a member of the SCTA?

A: We see SCTA membership as an opportunity to build partnerships and expand our circle of friends while helping to share information to help legitimize the cannabis industry. We want to be able to show our fellow CIT and banking partners the positive side and the direction the cannabis industry is headed. At the same time, we want to stay up-to-date with the secure transport industry and learn from others along the way.


Q. What are some exciting developments you’re seeing in the industry?

A: The introduction of autonomous vehicles is an exciting development that can make the transport of cash safer for people. This is an exciting prospect for the secure transport industry. And in terms of cannabis, the fact that we are starting to see professional sports endorse cannabis and its benefits is encouraging. In fact, we are seeing research now supporting the idea that cannabis can be a better option than prescribing Opioids for veterans, injured athletes, individuals with autism or other disabilities, and/or mental disorders such as anxiety.


Q. What is a change you expect to see in the industry over the next few years?

A: The transition to legal banking. It’s hard to move from black market storing. People and companies need to be educated to abide by rules and in doing so, the Feds won’t mess with them and they can be federally insured.
