Open for Business: Revival 98

Jason Bach is now managing his third medical marijuana business with the July 30 opening of Revival 98. Bach said inventory startup costs for the dispensary were roughly $50,000. The building, located at 2782 W. Republic Road, used to house a Git-n-Go convenience store and Chinese restaurants before Revival 98 owners Grant Wistrom and Matthew Bickel bought and remodeled it. The 2,500-square-foot shop employs eight. In addition to selling cannabis in edible, topical, concentrate and drink forms, Bach said the dispensary works with three companies to help patients obtain medical marijuana cards. Bach began working in the marijuana industry in Colorado in 2009, when it became medically legal in the state. The Springfield native opened a hydroponic supply store in Breckenridge in 2009 to sell equipment and fertilizers. He owned the business for eight years before selling it and moving to Denver to work with Native Roots.
