We enjoyed having Irving Casiano of Flower Shop Network as our month’s Masterclass guest! We had a great time learning all about Flower Shop Network. You might have seen Flower Shop Network at many industry events, but have you ever wondered about their services? If you could not join us this month, here is a recap of what you missed!
What is Flower Shop Network?
Flower Shop Network is an online business that serves as a floral service and a directory for finding local florists. In 1997, Brock and Loranne Atwill, the owners of Flower Shop Network, seized an opportunity to establish a flower shop in Paragould, Arkansas. Loranne, who had served as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Redbook Florist Services, a floral wire service, for more than 13 years, was eager to explore the retail aspect of the floral business. With Brock’s expertise in marketing, they started their flower shop venture.
Before long, Brock and Loranne gained valuable insights into local florists’ challenges in a rapidly changing market. They understood the obstacles that made it challenging for consumers to identify genuine local florists. Additionally, they recognized the limited availability of effective resources, particularly online, to support locally-owned florists in their efforts to thrive.
