A Batavia couple hopes to open a medical marijuana dispensary on the west side of Naperville.
Traci and Hugo Fernandez, owners of the 3 C Compassionate Care Center, are requesting one of the three available licenses for DuPage County to open a dispensing facility on Quincy, just off of Ogden Avenue.
Once state approved, the company would still need to get a building permit from the city.
The business plans to donate 20% of its profits to the United Paralysis Foundation and an extra 5% to support discount programs for residents and veterans who may not be able to afford medical marijuana.
The couple also hopes to open a dispensary in Joliet – if approved, both could open some time early next year.
