At L’Eagle, Mr. Andrle has made a conscious choice to hire only degreed horticulture and agricultural scientists as cultivation leads.

L’Eagle’s dedication to customer service and production of (third party certified) organically cultivated and long-cured cannabis flower and artisan infused products is rooted in Mr. Andrle’s extensive background in hospitality and fine dining. He began his career in the restaurant industry, eventually working his way into the upscale restaurant scenes in Vail and Denver, and co-owning a restaurant along the way. He envisioned a dispensary that catered to discerning tastes and meticulous service found in the world of fine wine and healthy farm-to-table restaurants, and parlayed his fine-dining experience to launch a business centered on offering the highest quality cannabis products and unparalleled customer education and service.
