Contract Valued at $400,000 Through 2018
LOS ANGELES, November 14, 2017, CSCE, /PRNewswire/ —
Cascade Energy, Inc. (OTC Pink: CSCE) today announced the signing of its first major contract for outsourced employment services in the fast-growing cannabis marketplace. Under the terms of the contract, which is valued at approximately $400,000 through 2018, Cascade, under the BudHire brand, will staff 20 employees at a Washington State Tier 3 Cannabis Cultivator and assume the responsibilities of payroll, benefits administration and other HR duties.
Simon Yu, CEO of Cascade Energy commented, “While this is our first major contract, we believe there will be more to follow. Our outsourced service offerings are resonating with entrepreneurial cannabis companies that need to staff their growing operations, but find the recruiting and HR aspects time consuming. That’s where Cascade comes in. We’re here to be an extension of our client’s business operations.”
Cascade’s services are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of cannabis business operators. While the growing cannabis sector is expected to create thousand of new jobs, many industry operators are having problems finding and retaining qualified staff. Additionally, the costs of hiring, managing and compensating employees and the employment risks are often beyond the means of many operators. Cascade’s BudHire services will offload many of these burdens, allowing cannabis entrepreneurs to focus on managing growth.
While Cascade’s major market emphasis has thus far been on the growing cannabis sector in the state of Washington, the Company is currently planning the entry into other markets, including the soon to be legalized California recreational marketplace. The contract announced today is actually Cascade’s second contract in the sector after signing a smaller equipment-related contract, valued at approximately $100,000, which was also with a cultivator in the state of Washington.
