How To Sell My Florist Business

Sell My Florist Business

The emphasis of your business has to be the flowers!

Maximise the Value of Your Florist:

  1. Charge for every service. Time and product cost money
  2. Have a number of well-priced suppliers.
  3. Buy what’s in season and flog it! Be creative with your purchasing.
  4. Use the best-priced flowers as much as possible in all arrangements.
  5. Bargain the price with your suppliers. Remember, they need you as much as you need them!
  6. Diversify. Stock associated products to give yourself another income stream.
  7. Offer weekly specials.
  8. Upsell.
  9. Alliances with other businesses can ensure a steady stream of business. Go out and form these unions.
  10. Have a website. Allowing customers to order online is cost-effective in both terms of labour costs and ordering supplies.
  11. When special event days such as Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day come around, plan ahead. Have pre-made arrangements ready for sale, this saves on labour costs during busy times.
  12. Sell un-arranged flowers.
  13. Stock a variety of price points.
  14. Focus on the profitable, not your dream of offering beautiful arrangements! Labour costs can be your downfall.
  15. Become a specialist in wedding arrangements.
  16. Promote promote promote!

  5. Do you have a strong history of profitability?
  6. Does your outlet present beautifully? Does a purchaser need to spend more money here?
  7. List all fixtures, fittings and equipment included in the purchase price.

  9. List all suppliers.
  10. List all staff.
  11. What is your role in the business?
