Message from the Flower Tent President, Mr. Tom Ansilio:
My family started the Flower Tent in 1992, we really didn't have any idea how big the organization would come to be, our focus was then as it is today, to sell happiness through quality flowers. Our entire company, from myself to the delivery drivers have one specific focus in mind, deliver a unique, fun and happy shopping experience for every customer. We are excited about each and every potential franchise partner that has interest in the Flower Tent franchise system. Through an almost 20 year history of the company, we have refined this business model and developed a very special franchise concept. Together, we have the opportunity to redefine the retail flower market and deliver happiness to more people around the country. In 2010, we had 46 tents open and delivering happiness to customers, over the next few years, we hope to have hundreds of locations doing the same thing.
From My Family to Yours, we thank you for considering joining us and we hope to have the opportunity to work together. As you consider taking this next step in your life, we are here to support you, provide guidance and anything you need so that you can get to know us better.
