Buying a Florist Shop with Hilton Smythe

Floristry is an art form which demands a good price.

For special occasions such as weddings, Valentine’s Day and funerals, supermarket flowers simply won’t do. Owning a florist can be a fulfilling job as you meet all sorts of people for a variety of events. If you’re interested in running a local florist, see how we can help your dream come true.

Say it with flowers

It’s possible to say anything with flowers – Congratulations, Get Well Soon, or simply I Love You. A good florist can guide you through one of the most special days of your life. Or help you through one of the most difficult times in your life. This is why running a florist is such a special job and you need extra skills to be this sort of business owner.

The UK floral design industry is going through an exciting time as it experiments with online retail. Florists’ traditionally only delivered flowers locally, but as technology and logistics companies have developed, there is also the option of selling bouquets online to a national client base.

According to the Flowers and Plant Association, the fresh cut flower and indoor plant market in the UK is worth a strong £2.2 billion. That’s more than the UK music industry which is valued at £2 billion. There are around 15,000 florist businesses in the UK, and you could buy one of them and be your own boss with a little help from our business brokers.
