  1. I would love to start a mini floral business, do you think I would do well in Orlando florida?

      Hi Yasmin-

      When opening your flower shop business location can be very important.
      I myself am not from Orlando, Florida,
      However below are some things to consider when opening a flower shop in a specific location.

      Traffic – Is this a heavy area with lots of foot traffic?
      Parking – Is their ample parking?
      Competition – Are you close to your competitor?
      Other Businesses – Are you located by other businesses who get foot traffic?
      Curb Appeal- Is your business store front attractive and appealing?

      Although all the above is not necessarily required it is a good place to start, I also advice reaching out to florists in your area for their advice.

      I would love to hear feedback on this topic from fellow florists in the Orlando, Florida area.

        I’ve been debating this for quite some time now and I too am in the Orlando area! I think one of the things we lack is a place where people can come by and buy flowers that you can’t get at supermarket.


  2. I like the different and creative ways that there are to start a flower shop. I think that because flowers die rather quickly it would be important to find a way to sell them quickly. I also know that unless it is for a big event or occasion people will most likely not go out of their way to find and buy flowers. Because of that, I think that it would be a good idea to bring flowers to the buyers.

      I am a current owner of a flower shop in Florida, and you would actually be surprised on how many people DO go out of their way to find great quality flowers with a professionally beautiful design! My business thrives in our area! I would agree, however, that it would be even better to have the ability to be mobile! Especially with the current conditions resulting from COVID. Even still, people LOVE coming to the shop to purchase flowers. 2020 was actually my MOST productive year in 15 years of owning this location!

    My best friend of 35yrs been working in her mother’s florist all her life. Reirement put her mom passing it down to her.
    She relocated the business on a busy highway and we feel she’ll do great with it. Located in a slight busy town in NC. She has only few competitor’s in same town.
    Please help me to come up with ideas to take her inheritance to next level.

    I would love to own a flower truck- I have a vision but do not know the logistics of the business side- licenses, etc?
    Can you provide information for a start-up and how to kick start it all very quickly–I am so over the corporate office grind. Looking forward to hearing from you!
