WHO IS EZ-VAPE?
EZ-Vape was the brainchild of two entrepreneurs (Chuck Spillette & Steven Shields) back in 2014, after having quit tobacco with an electronic cigarette themselves. They saw the potential in the market and went about setting up their first vape store, in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
Within a few months they realized they had something special and began opening stores throughout British Columbia and then Canada. Today, with 24 stores and counting, and almost 60 staff, both Chuck and Steven remain a driving force in the business and the Canadian vaping industry.
EZ-Vape is one of the few retailers in Canada that stocks ALL of the big device brands – SMOK, Joyetech, Aspire and Kanger, as well as having first access on many of the main eliquid brands from around the world.

WHAT OUR FRANCHISEE’S ARE SAYING
“The success I have enjoyed in my franchise, is in my opinion, down to the leadership within EZ-VAPE. We have such a strong brand identity with clean storefronts, as well as recognized brands. I knew nothing about vaping when I decided to buy a franchise, but the training and expertise within the business took me from no knowledge of running my first store on my own. The knowledge that help is only a call away is so important.”

“ As a former cigarette smoker, I used vaping to quit tobacco. Vaping helped me quit something that had a hold on me for years and as such, I became very evangelical about the industry. Seeing the success that both Chuck & Steve enjoyed with EZ-VAPE, I decided I wanted in and went about buying a franchise. I’m now 3 years in and genuinely haven’t looked back.”
