About OUR

STUDIO

GROWTH HIGHWAY AGENCY

Fred and Charlie have been working together for over 20 years branding several very successful businesses including B.D.T. Smoke Shops, Monroe Street Fair Hash Bash Festival, Verve Stars, Chong's Choice, America's First Medical Marijuana Championship Tournaments, Green Light Advisors LLC and Creative Rec LLC. 


They first met each other when Fred came into B.D.T. Smoke Shops in Hazel Park one wintery day in December of 1996. Fred brought several cases of hand made artistic hard glass hand pipes and water pipes and made a great impression at the shop. B.D.T. Smoke Shops sold just about everything he had in those cases as the Christmas shopping season was well underway. B.D.T. Smoke Shops has been buying his glass art ever since.


Charlie founded the totally free Monroe Street Fair Hash Bash Festival in 2002. In 2009 interest in the fair exploded almost overnight and Charlie and Fred teamed up with Sal Aiello to form the core group that runs the fair every year. They have watched the fair grow throughout the years and double in size in 2016 to over 50 vendors and organizations.


They take great satisfaction with the success of the fair and are very pleased that the festival has seen such great growth and enjoyed by well over 10,000 fans each year.

Make the Growth Highway your marketing department that put's patients first and drives sales. 


This dynamic team has over 20 years  marketing  experience in the cannabis industry and would love the opportunity to serve you.
