Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES


Company clarifies no affiliation to delivery service in Canada

LOS ANGELES, April 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, INC.

Management commented that the name change has been filed with the state of Nevada and is anticipated to take effect on or about April 15, 2020. In addition, the Company is in the process of submitting the name change to FINRA. “It is important to emphasize that we made this name change in recognition of the broadening scope of our corporation,” said Matt Feinstein, Director for the Company. “This change has no effect on our operations, our stock, or any of our shareholders.”

Once effective, the Company’s branding will be clearly identifiable through use of official company logos (pictured below).

Company management also elaborated on an unrelated Canadian entity whose operations and press releases may have caused brand confusion with Pineapple Express, Inc. and PineappleExpress.com.

“We want to make it clear that we are not operating in Canada, have not licensed our brand name to any other operation, nor do we have any affiliation with this Canadian entity,” stated Pineapple Express CEO, Shawn Credle. “At this point, we are seeking all available remedies to limit brand confusion from occurring with other industry participants regarding our Pineapple Express brand and our cannabis delivery portal at pineappleexpress.com."
