PRINCIPALS

DAVID FETTNER

David has been one of Chicago’s premier general contractors for over two decades. As a third-generation builder, David’s expertise in  retail, industrial and commercial construction provided a seamless transition to the cannabis construction industry. 

David’s versatility in construction is vast and unlimited, but what sets David apart is his legal experience in real estate and zoning law, which gives his clients an advantage when navigating through the numerous zoning, building and compliance codes that regulate cannabis construction.

MIKE KAULENTIS

Mike brings decades of experience in concept, design, and branding. As the principal of numerous successful restaurants and bar concepts, Mike not only developed the concept, but he designed them to completion, creating long lasting brands in and around Chicago. 

He took those tools and brought them to the cannabis industry which was lacking in both design creativity and concept. He utilizes his tools which he calls ‘DCCB’: Design, Concept, Construction, Brand. He creates the Concept, Designs the ideas and Builds them for a long lasting Brand.
