BoomX Cannabis Company is owned and managed by Anthony Cardillo (pictured left), Tony Cardillo (second from left), Mike Cardillo (right), and Kristin (Cardillo) Bowles (second from right). 

They’re excited to work together on this new venture, but this isn’t their first rodeo. Their family construction business – A. Cardillo & Sons, Inc – was established in 1948 and is still thriving today.
