About Fleurs to You
Employers, commercial property managers, and residential communities work with Fleurs To You to create pop-up plant flower events and workshops for their employees, tenants, and residents. The goal is to create community and engagement through interactive experiences. Some of Fleurs To You offerings include build- a- bouquet bars, pot-a-plant kits, and flower arranging classes.
Before, delivery service was not a part of the business model, it was strictly an in-person, on-site activity. With so many people working from home the demand to incorporate delivery services has been phenomenal and necessary.
Due to the lockdown, we had to change our business model
We switched to online events rather than in-person get-togethers. My customers felt that if we could get supplies to their staff, tenants, and residents, we could continue to work together. So, the materials need to be delivered.
Delivery was really stressful
My customer base covers MA and RI. I was doing the transporting and it did not work. How could I possibly do the deliveries and run my business as well? I am a small business, there was no way I could create the kits, prepare them for distribution, do all of the deliveries, and then jump on an online workshop.
“Metrobi is my lifeline.”
My customers loved that I went online.
It is a win-win for my customers, and their tenants, residents and employees. People are staying at home more. We aim to make that experience better. Individuals are creating something colorful and living. That is exciting for them. It is a mood-boosting experience. They in turn have greater appreciation and commitment to their employer or property manager.
My business survived COVID.
Fleurs to You is a perk that employers and commercial and residential property managers provide to their employees, tenants, and residents. Since I have been able to continue to offer my services, my customers can continue to provide these fringe benefits and engagement opportunities to their communities.
