This shop is known for its thorough and friendly customer service, prompt deliveries and, of course, its stunning assortment of fresh-cut flowers. Florist’s staff works side by side with customers to help select the perfect gift for any occasion, whether it’s one of their distinctive floral arrangements, or well-stocked fruit and gift baskets.
Owning a floral shop is an opportunity to enjoy a really creative career. Owning any kind of business involves considerable hard work and a lot of hours on the job. To run a flower shop, you need experience not only with arranging flowers but also good business sense and maybe even a background in how to plan events. If you run a smaller-sized shop, your hands are involved in every aspect of running the company.
The most logical job duty of the floral shop owner is putting together flower arrangements. You may have a natural eye for artistically arranging buds and baby's breath or need to take courses to fine-tune your skills.
Either way, a majority of your day is likely spent reading customer's orders, deciding what types of flowers look good together and creating something beautiful that people are proud to display. After the masterpieces are created, most end up being delivered, which you either do yourself or hire a staff person to transport.
Floral shops have numerous supplies it needs to keep on hand. As the owner, you'll place new orders for materials. Obviously, the most frequent order placed is for flowers because they are perishable.
Fine-tune your skills for determining just how many flowers you need to have on hand and for keeping them fresh so that you cut down on waste. Floral shops also need supplies like vases, wire, foam, ribbon and gift cards that are necessary to make beautiful arrangements as presents for others.
