Our roundup of the latest Natick MA business news:
Kaycha opens cannabis testing lab
Kaycha Labs has shown patience. The Fort Lauderdale marijuana product testing firm began the process of trying to open in Natick more than a year ago, and after getting town approvals earlier this year had hoped to open in April. Seven months later, Kaycha has received state approvals and opened its doors at 16 Tech Circle, adding to its roster of labs in other states, including Colorado, Tennessee, and California.
Kaycha COO John Schwartz said in a statement about the opening that the firm’s lab setup “should translate into more informed decision-making for our clients to optimize their product mix, reduce costs, and enhance profitability.” Kaycha tests products for the types of adult-use and medical marijuana facilities that have or will open in Natick. It looks at everything from potency to pesticides to contamination, helping its clients meet regulations and provide safe products to customers.
Lookout Farm Greenhouse dining returns
Outdoor dining has been pushed about as far into the year as it can go weatherwise, and Lookout Farm in Natick says its now time to go inside its covered Greenhouse to eat and drink. We first checked it out last December.
The Greenhouse is open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, but check their schedule to be certain of hours. Oh, and Santa will be making appearances in December.
Paper Store cuts the ribbon
We’re pretty sure The Paper Store can afford to cut a ribbon or two, and have plenty left for shoppers. The store, which sells everything from stationery to jewelry, had its official grand opening at Sherwood Plaza on Rte. 9 east this past weekend.
The Paper Store was previously located at Shopper’s World, and is making a comeback from corporate’s voluntary Chapter 11 filing last year.
