“[Cariloha] selected and trained managers that are far better than the retail employees I would be able to hire on my own, which made the experience of opening a store and being an absentee owner simple and enjoyable. I did not have to be concerned about recruiting, training, benefits or turnover that normally impacts small businesses.” Absentee Owner in Florida.
