How Red Zen came to be
May 18, 2021
Dave and Pat have been doing business together for many years. Their shared love for adventure, fishing, and the outdoors led to a close friendship and business relationship that has allowed them to travel extensively together. While hiking in South America, they stumbled upon an article that highlighted the exploding Cannabis market in the United States. This article was specifically focused on the growing packaging market that would come along with more and more states legalizing and de-stigmatizing Cannabis use across the country. They quickly saw the fit with their industry backgrounds and the low cost, quick delivery business model they have created.
The name Red Zen actually came from Dave and Pat’s nicknames. Red: a reference to Pat’s color of hair as a child; and Zen: a reference to Dave’s ability (or often lack of) to let stressful or complicated situations become unique opportunities!
