What is Amanda’s Fresh Flowers?
Posted On July 13, 2021
A new company in California aims to bring fresh flowers to supermarkets in the US.
The company, Amanda’sFresh Flowers, is one of a small number of businesses selling flowers to the US market.
It launched its website in December last year and has since raised $1.5m in funding.
It will sell flowers in a variety of markets, including grocery stores, convenience stores, health food stores, and coffee shops.
The flowers will be packaged in small boxes, with the company saying that the boxes are designed to hold more than 200,000 flowers.
But, like its competitors, Amanda says it will sell its flowers in small batches.
“We want to provide the consumer with a greater choice, greater choice of product,” Amanda said.
“Our goal is to help consumers choose and buy the freshest, most delicious flowers available.”
To date, the company has sold flowers in Australia, the UK, and New Zealand.
“In the United States, we have sold more than 8,000 tons of fresh flowers since inception,” the company said.
The firm is based in California and will roll out the service across the US, including in some states with very strict rules on fresh flower sales.
But for consumers in states that have no such regulations, such as Arizona, New York, Oregon, and California, Amanda said it would be possible to buy fresh flowers.
“It’s really just a matter of educating the public and educating the industry,” Amanda added.
“This is a consumer service, it’s not a retail service, and we are not selling flowers.
It’s not about selling flowers, it is about educating the consumer.”
The firm has received more than $1 million in funding so far.
