About Flowers on Broad Street
Flowers on Broad Street was founded by Donna Pittman, an incredible floral designer with a deep love for gardening. The philosophy of this Flower Shop is to source flowers that must look gracefully “just picked,” blooms are gathered from around the world ~ California, Holland, South America, and most importantly from our local growers in Fuquay Varina, Clayton, and Cary. Organic and farm fresh is the Flowers on Broad Street favorite look. Flowers are designed in a garden-style which sometimes embraces nature’s beautiful imperfections.
Selecting their new florist software
When Flowers on Broad Street started in business they were part of the wire services and didn’t have a website of their own. As the business started to grow they considered it was time to have an eCommerce so their customers can purchase online. In the end this would serve two purposes because it was also a great way of acquiring new customers that we’re searching for flowers in their area.
Flowers on Broad Street did some research about solutions for migrating their store. They needed to get out of the wire services fees and they wanted a system that was very user friendly and that would make the daily operations of the store a smoother process. After much research, they decided to choose Floranext software and they’ve been really happy ever since. Flowers on Broad Street loves how easy it is to manage their flower shop and website, the seamless and fast experience of taking an order.
