Planet 13 is looking to expand operations to Illinois.
The multi-state vertically integrated cannabis company has submitted its proposed Waukegan, Illinois, location to local regulators and the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation for approval.
Robert Groesbeck, co-CEO of Planet 13, said the Illinois location will be smaller than its SuperStore locations in Las Vegas and Santa Ana, Calif., but it will “still meet Planet 13’s high standards for customer experience.”

“Along with our Planet 13 Illinois partner Frank Cowan, we have selected a dispensary location in Waukegan, Illinois, that we are very excited about,” Groesbeck said. “It is in a prominent shopping center with multiple stores, restaurants, hotels, and a recently announced casino project. It is located off the Interstate 94 highway between Milwaukee and Chicago, close to the Wisconsin border.”
The location now awaits approvals from state regulators and the city of Waukegan.
